A good start - 22/08/2003
Although we haven't picked up any wins in the opening league games,
we're unbeaten as any keeper will tell you, two clean sheets represent a
satisfying personal performance. The points we've picked up are valuable
and hard won. Sheffield Utd are backed by many as one of the favourites
for promotion, so the trip to Bramall Lane was always going to be tough.
We then faced Derby at the Priestfield and simply didn't manage to get the
ball in the back of their net.
Of course we've also made progress
in the Carling Cup, and it was nice to score two away goals. But we've two
Yorkshire away games this weekend and we'll be looking to build on our
solid if not spectacular start. Last year we won 3-1 at Bradford and
we'll be looking for a repeat. We face Burnley in the Bank Holiday game
and that'll be a hard game to call. Burnley have some quality, and if
they're sometimes accused of being inconsistent, let's just say we'd be
happy to catch them on one of their poorer days! It's till too early to
look at the league table with any degree of purpose, but a couple of
decent results and we could be looking good.
As you will have seen
from the previous article, my experiences in Serbia were quite shocking.
Its a sad fact that in 2003 that sort of racism exists but positive
action must be taken if we're to improve the situation. I'm considering
how I can contribute to this process, and if my actions result in only a
minute improvement, it's nevertheless a step in the right direction.
