I’ll stick with what I wrote in my last post. Losing 0-3 to Barnsley was not a disaster. It was just what happens in football. After the game, I went safely back to my nice, warm home and my life is not in tatters because we lost.
You win some; you lose some. Anything can and does happen in the Championship. On Saturday, Norwich won 5-0 and Reading lost 5-0. Few people would have predicted that as Norwich had lost their previous 4 games and Reading had won their previous 4.
Birmingham City came close to scoring several times but didn’t. They spent most of the second half trying to get an equaliser, which became harder when Davies was sent off on 71 minutes. Then Barnsley scored their second goal on 84 minutes and a lot of the crowd walked out of the ground. Some more departed after the third goal 3 minutes later. There are always some who leave games early but a large exodus only occurs when we are losing. I find it discouraging to see the ground empty so quickly and I don’t imagine it boosts our players confidence either.
