A Great Day - Things Are Looking Up!

A Great Day - Things Are Looking Up!

Another victory, another 3 points, and moving ever so slightly up the league.

Are we starting to feel better now?

The last 6 months have been nothing short of hideous. Losing games, players and confidence by the bucket load. We, as a club, were rocking, sapped of all confidence our moral was about as low as I remember it in my life. I seriously couldn`t see how we were going to get out of the slump.

However, even though I wouldn`t consider us out of the sh*t just yet, we`ve slowly but surely started playing ourselves back into the season. We have now won 6 of the last 7 games in all competitions and things are looking up.

I haven`t seen any of the match today so don`t know how good/bad the performance was, but a 3-1 win against Stoke is a great win in anyone`s book.

Then all you have to do is cast an eye to Old Trafford this afternoon. We were all suicidal after our 8-2 spanking at the Theatre of Nightmares, convinced that that was how far we`d sunk, but on reflection an away 8-2 loss at the home of the Champions with our weakest side in years is not as bad as United getting whooped at home with their strongest team against their neighbours.

It shows that in this league anyone can give anyone a damn good stuffing on their day.

As we head towards our historically toughest month of November, we find ourselves in 7th position a mere 3 points behind Liverpool.

Things are looking up eh?

One game at a time Sajit? 6 wins in 7, I think that warrants some discussion about a great improvement. You realise that us talking about turning a corner will have no direct bearing on the team? lol

Deserved victory, but extremely concerning where the goals will come from without RvP. Chamakh looks absolutely shot of confidence with the ball bouncing off him. Can't really see how his style of player fits into our system. Just need a point at Chavski now!

Folk are funny aren't they. It's ok to talk about the problems, flaws, shortcomings and potential for disaster as much as you like. Some would even claim that that's just being realistic. But suggest maybe things might not be quite as bad as we've contemplated and we're exhorted not to go there. As long as the players have a positive attitude that's what matters most but a positive atmosphere around them wouldn't do any harm either.

Sajit, at no point in the article did Rocky mention the phrase 'turned a corner'. Its his prerogative to express his thoughts one would have thought.

6 in 7 is correct, Rocky. Well, you can't 8-2 be a Gooner when we have 1-6 of our last seven games in all competitions, eh.
