2 reasons for the 400miles in 2 days..

1) My Gran is in hospital with a bad leg break

2) Sheffield Wednesday kicked off their league one status at home to Daggenham & redbridge

….  well the 2nd point here I will discuss…

 2 nil up after 15 minutes, and with the flood gates bulging, a roursing chorus of “We are Wednesday , We are Wednesday , Irvine is our king  ” and you would have thought  we were back 5 yrs and challenging for promotion already !

 I was sat next to an old couple, who without being rude, looked LeClerk from ‘Allo ‘Allo, and him and his good lady wife started to undo their flask of tea, after 20minutes, ( I was praying that Wednesday didn’t score again, soon , for fear of flying tea !!! ) , no fear there then….

The first 20 minutes were good, and the Owls shows some good touches, especially from Gary Teale, and Clinton Morrison was always a threat, but after that wednesday didn’t look as if knew really what the game plan was…. the long ball to maybe the shortest man on the pitch ( Tudgay ) didn’t work.

 If Gary Teale can play the midfield general role, then wednesday could maybe hold the ball and spread it down the wings, (especially when JJ is fit again ) this could prove interesting, though Daniel Jones looked lively when he came on for Teale in the second half ,

Another big plus, was that Darren Purse was a rock in defence, and played a captains role !

 The problem, and what dissapointed the fans was that the team has not gelled yet, 8 new signings can’t be expected to be a “team” instantly, but in this league, they will have to gell fast , as it is a long season, and there are a lot better opposition than Daggenham offered up on Saturday !

In Irvine we Hope.

The Future is bright, the future is blue & white
