We should be delighted at how much better run the club is now. And yet, the social media experts are never satisfied. Last Tuesday we lost a pretty even game to a decent Cheltenham side. They took their only chance and we missed ours. The windy conditions suited their robust, more physical style better than us and won the points. Even the best teams lose but some of our so-called fans seem to think that we have a divine right to win matches. Football isn’t like that. Some of those same fans have been on Liam O’Neill’s back since he got here, just as they were with Joe Pigott. His goal at Port Vale will no doubt silence some of them for now. What good, I wonder, do they think their constant whingeing do the club?
Finally, we welcome Scunthorpe United tonight. I have always enjoyed going there and remember crowing in the Berkley Hotel after Tom Youngs’ volley, which stuck in the stanchion, won us the points. I would love to have been there this season for our five nil win, and suspect that the home fixture will be much closer. Win or lose, however, this has been our best season for years, even though we are only top of the league!
