Karl@1, Yeah I know what you mean, especially in the pub!

It ruins the rest of the day. :-)

If Allan can recover in time for the derby, I'm ok with this.

I just hope we don't freeze and turn to stone – like they have looked Medusa in the eyes like in the past.

Hopefully with the current run of form, they will approach the derby with a different mentality.

Rodriguez and Mina playing in Chile 3 days before the derby, and now a 12.30 start, that's all we need.

With the players we have, I don’t care what time we play! I want more games to watch. ;-) Will Liverpool be in the same situation with their International players?

Damn - 3 hours less for Richie and Allen to recover.

OFFS - it's another game. We're going to beat the crap out of them, regardless. Let's be positive for a change! We now have the TOOLS!

Repeat after me x 20 times - "We ARE going to BEAT the crap out of THE RS in this derby game".

Now, doesn't that feel good???

I think we just need to concentrate on ourselves, no other team matters but it's what our team does. We're looking good; but one or two injuries happen and we haven't yet got a squad full of the players that the Prof wants us to have.

As far as I'm concerned, every team that EFC play, have to know they've been in a bloody hard match.

The Club is building something here and we are definiterly on the way forward. Any club that plays us, must know
We Never Give In... as Winston would say.

We have shown over the last two years that we can compete with them at home and now we have new energy, new mind set and some winning mentality in the team. Just hope that Romero can be signed and Pickford taken out of the firing line! Out of interest who is our goalkeeping coach? Time for him/her to start earning thier money! perhaps, Pickford needs to see a hypnotherapist asap!

If Pickfords lapses of concentration are a confidence thing, then hypno therapy might be the ticket...
