Over 70 years of supporting the Blues have left me with a tendency to worry before games. I know that, regardless of who we are playing, we could lose. So Saturday mornings during football season usually find me worrying. But today, I can relax. I did all my worrying yesterday evening and saw Blues get a win. Blues went up to 4th in the Championship table. We’ll probably go down a few places after today’s results but I’m enjoying our elevation while it lasts.
I was glad I went. It was good to see a crowd in the Tilton, to see Troy Deeney step onto the pitch to play for the first time, and, of course, to see us get the win and a clean sheet. As Lee Bowyer said in his interview, “clean sheets are not a fluke, it’s hard work.”
