Done and Dusted


Well, that’s another season over and done with – and good riddance to it. One of the worst seasons I’ve had to endure in the 35 years since I started going regularly. Not a lot to say about it, so here’s a list of highlights and lowlights.

Highlights
Taking 4 points off Spurs.
Beating the Mancs 4-0 in the League Cup, with Spector scoring twice and the whole game played out in a snowstorm.
The 3-1 win over the Mickey Mousers.
Another 3-1  win, this time the Boxing Day match at Foolham.
The second-half come-back at West Brom to snatch a 3-3 draw after being 0-3 down at the interval.
Super Scotty Parker – magnificent throughout.
Mental moment of the season – Carlton Cole’s goal that put us 3-1 up on aggregate at Brum in the League Cup semi.

Lowlights
Avraam Grunt getting the manager’s job.
Avraam Grunt not getting the tin-tack in Jan.
Blowing the League Cup semi after being 3-1 up with only 45 minutes to see it out.
Throwing away 2 goal leads far too often.
Pretty much every other game not covered by the above.
“Star” players not performing.
Winning the Olympic Stadium bid.
