Re: THE TITLE CHASING MAGGIES v The U's
I can hear the strains of 'football's coming home' all over again at the first hint of good fortune. Yes, Vaughan is a good player - everyone says he's still capable of playing at a higher level and the newbies look sound investments but the pressure is on us in the same way as it was on England as soon as they won a game.This doesn't help. As for today, Nolan's warm-up routine of splitting his squad to be in two places at once pre-season and not fielding his best team in total anywhere means they'll do what they did last time out and start slowly as they get to know each other. I know the whole squad needs to be involved from the off but it might have been better to play his starting 11 a little more so they could get to know each other. Dropping points at home first out is not a promising start for a team that needs to aim high to achieve what's been promised on this board.At least it should dampen down the overly optimistic. The fourth division is and always will be a bloody battleground.there won't be any outright winners early doors.
