Foggy or clear? BBC and yr.no give no indication of a foggy night for the journey back from the game and the promise of some light rain means that the mist might be cleared by late afternoon. I'm in Hertfordshire at the moment and wondering if I were on the A120 later, at a steady 60, if I might get passed on the inside by a Mondeo taking to the hard shoulder...
When the appointments of Magilton, Keane and Jewell were made the general question often seemed to be 'Well, they might get us promoted but will they keep us up?' And their failure to deliver the first part of that question means we will never know the full answer, but we can have a pretty good guess.
It is disappointing that the tenor of the conversation has now shifted to 'Can Mick ever get us promoted?' or worse still 'Can Mick keep us mid-table?'
With just under two years to run on the current contract I think we should be seeing some evidence of a longer term strategy to achieve the success to deserve another two or three years. I don't doubt that Mick is trying his best and that his best is streets ahead of what any of us would even have comprehension of but there is something that feels too complacent in the management set up, too cosy in the media relations, it's all a bit 'Home Counties' rather than flinty East Anglia.
