I heard the news about David Cotterill before the game on Tuesday, that he had been given 24 hours’ notice to find a new club. That left me feeling that anything might happen. So when Ryan Shotton was taken off at half time, I found myself wondering if they had just sold him. I know that was irrational but I quite often have irrational thoughts while watching football.
The transfer window has closed, I’ve updated my team list and now it’s time to see how the new players fit into the team. There are doubts over the fitness of both Morrison and Shotten so we should see some of the new players on the pitch. Kerim Frei played on Tuesday but Emilio Nsue and Cheick Keita stayed on the bench. I may miss some of the familiar faces but I can only support the team that the manager puts on the pitch and that’s what I plan to do.
