'Gravity is a habit that is hard to shake off.'
'That was in the past - we're in the future now'
One of the above is the musings of a thinker... the other is David Beckham... I'll leave you to associate accordingly.
It's been a while peeps... I'm sad to report that my interest has taken a back seat over recent weeks, for one reason and another... but I'm not accountable for the dip in form!
So... 40 points held in hand as I strolled rather smugly from a slightly easy afternoon's business what seems many moons ago at Oakwell.
I sit here today with Wednesday grasping onto 41, 3 wins from safety!
Safety. Missed that word. I was one of many naive enough to think that maybe I'd used that word for the last time, outside the Prem.
How 'Un' Wednesday of me. OK, OK so I got swept up in the hype! I must admit it was good while it lasted.
Many Owls perceive the season's end has already passed us by and, in respect of where one will be placed in the football ladder next year, it probably has.
Allow me to suggest an alternative. This could be the longest pre-season in the club's history, metaphorically speaking. Let's go out there, fans alike, and play like we don't feel pressure. Because there is none. After KPS' final game darn sarf anyone would have taken this position, or lower even, anyone. We are safe. Anyone who can argue we won't win 3 games in 14 is in serious need of psychiatric help. I'll pay.
I propose an 'exhibition like' end to the season. I'd love for the players to think like this. Next season could be great. But let's worry about that in the summer. Who knows, going out fearless onto the pitch, as we did throughout the back end of 2006, we could really take some points and establish ourselves as a Championship force: something we have never been since we fell and the 'cheap' dome in London rose.
We can but hope.
To the nitty gritty of the last few weeks and I must assess the goings on at S6 which, I'm sure you'll agree, has been busier than envisaged.
Bougherra - phew! We'll undoubtedly miss the chap (he's probably been the difference these last few games without even being here) but as soon as the 'cha ching' sound echoed through his tiny mind he was gone.
Leon Clarke - Strange one. Really think we are top heavy now and off loading, in no particular order ;), is essential... Corr, Tudgay, Burton... Clarke!
JJ - TBC - 'Looks promising'. If anyone else is fed up of being let down by that thought then lets face it, you ain't the only one. Reportedly half a mill really shows we mean business with this chap though, I think he'll be good.
Our form - Like a hand crafted chocolate fireguard; nice to look at for a while but not doing the job. OK we play nice stuff (hopefully the summertime departing lord of Hillsborough will be pleased) but we aren't bringing home the bacon. The distant play off dreams are set in a land far away.
Leeds - ha! nice bit of form in last three but I really hope their mutiny takes them down, no set of fans deserve it more.
Pigs - Well played. Thankfully I've been to parties when I was a youth and seen many a bubble burst; let's hope Uncle Neil steps on theirs soon.
It's great to be back!
Wednesday 3 - 1 Luton (Talbot)
