Very strange and fun day yesterday, so many goals and red cards in the Football League, goals I like, just hope that we are not going to go down the spanish/ brazilian route with regard to red cards.
Leeds won very comfortably, but drifted almost a full quarter ball pre kick off, what was that all about !!! It was a bit worrying, especially as I had to get involved again at level ball, but all worked out well in the end.
What else ? The Nani goal..... oh my goodness ! Brentford scoring four on the road whilst missing two penalties ! Bees are within four points of the playoffs after propping up the rest of the division on October 9th, outplayed Birmingham for 91 minutes in midweek and once again look the superstars we all know them to be !!
Manchester City should already be shopping for some defenders, I have been trying to tell Mancini for weeks, maybe he will listen now ! Say what you like about Mick McCarthy and plenty of people, including me, do, he has a pretty good eye for lower league talent, signing David Ewards and Kevin Foley from Luton and Matt Jarvis from Gillingham for around a total of £1.5 m. Jarvis is a player who makes you sit on the edge of your seat every time he receives the ball and even Fabio must have noticed him by now ! Wolves can really be fun to watch at times, they will get thumped on occasion, City could have been two up early yesterday, but surely they would be better off going down fighting and playing to their strengths, support at Molineux is fantastic too, bit like Griffin Park for a night game !
Amazing day yesterday, another 4-3 (Reading) scoreline and the games at Exeter, Oldham, Tranmere and Accrington all came within a whisker of following suit. If this is the future for Football League games, there will be few complaints. Actually goals across the board are not up that much, only about 2% over the same stage last season, this means ......... think I will save this for another day.
