We will be technically inferior to a lot of sides in this division, like it or not, that IS budget driven. The fight shown last night however, that can often at least offset ability levels. We give the ball away far too often, but last night we fought tooth and nail to win it back. We miss chances that really should be put away, but the defence throwing themselves in front of the ball can sometimes make a single goal enough to win.
Last night reminded me of some of the games early in the season, where we looked like we’d fare far better than we have done. A browse through Owlstalk and you’ll see that Weds fans are fuming that the opposition battled and wanted it more, qualities than even our happiest clapper couldn’t honestly say have always been evident with us at times this season.
Yes, there are a lot of technically gifted players in this league, they aren’t all destined to go on to great things though. A lot of them are at their level, where they’ll remain for the duration of their careers. Talented yes, but ultimately journeymen. Effort/fight alone is unlikely to be enough on its own against the likes of the Mitrovic’s of the league, players who could clearly play higher, but for everyone of them, there are dozens more who’ll earn a tidy living for 10yrs in mid-table obscurity. It is against those opponents that the difference can be how badly do you want it.
If we do indeed go down, which looks likely, if we at least go down fighting than that is all most supporters ask. You’ve clearly got it in you lads, let’s come out swinging for the remainder of the season and see what happens.
As with most of us, I’ll be there next season regardless anyway......
