You've heard the saying before, now Vital Sheffield Wednesday contributor Mark Hollins explains its significance for the Owls of late...
Ever wondered why the morning after a great 'night' with a women is always quiet and subdued, hell I'll say it, an anti climax(no pun intended).
Same goes for a memorable night on the tiles. Sometimes you feel banged up.
This 'Lord Mayer's Show' metaphor can quite simply be used in any Jekyll and Hyde excuse scenario. Perhaps it's an indication. The worse the aftermath the better the event...
That doesn't take away the fact that it is merely an excuse.
If you really liked the girl you'd try hard to make a pleasant morning but, as many will testify, the best 'nights' are often had with a person you don't really know or care for.
If you had that great a night out you wanna get back in the boozer pronto for the long weekend session.
And if the players truly played their hearts out, which they did, and meant it for the club and fans, who knows, then they would have built on that brilliant victory at Headingly(...) and put Holloway's kids to bed, so to speak.
I just don't ever see us making life easy, or really pushing on from one brilliant performance to the next.
Sad I know. Pessimistic at best.
Let's face it, if we did live life by outsiders expectations at Hillsborough, we wouldn't quite be Sheffield Wednesday.
Granted we battled with 10 men at Elland road and we faced a bunch of fresh faced stand-ins against Plymouth, but the biggest question is... why was Ian the only manager to experiment?
Like us their league campaign is pretty much done and dusted and, yes, they had the added incentive of a small quarter final to consider but BRIAN PLEASE! Give a little rotation.
David Graham, pre-dispositions aside, deserved a chance, a full chance. If not him then Wade. Someone else up front, especially if Burton was churning food faster than Bernard Matthews...(sorry)
Give Bully a rest, he's no spring chicken (ba dum ching!), and Watson is no centre midfielder. Folly is....
Maybe even start the process of Kenny Lunt's confidence rebuild.
It's rare we get the chance to use actual competitive football as a lab for experimentation... but now's the chance.
Build for next year. As a contingency for a skint summer, play with the squad you have!
Whatever happens between now and the end of the season one can only guarantee strange decisions and disgruntled supporters, wherever we end up.
It's getting late and Lord knows I could ramble forever but let me leave you with this thought.... without desire, life would be pretty boring..... To the Premiership, China and beyond!
