|Reading Paul Mariner's My Rock and Roll Football Story|
at 22:10 8 Jan 2022
Happened to be reading the chapter on the 1980-81 UEFA Cup campaign today and having read where he said Bobby Robson essentially reset the scoreline in the second leg of the tie, even if Town were 5-0 up, interesting to hear McKenna talking about winning the second half today, even though we were already 3-0 up.
As we know, too often we've got 2-0 up and thought the job was done and resorted to just holding onto our lead in recent years, so it is reassuring to think that KM and Sir Bobby are in any way similar in thinking on this sort of thing. No reason why we should stop at 3 and it was good to hear him say he wasn't happy with how we finished the first half.

Seemed much better organised.
A lot more effort to get to the second ball, win headers, etc.
Properly throwing themselves into defending.
Much, much better.
|Players don't want to be here.|

We don't want them here.
The new manager will need to be something special to turn this around.
|About the only good to come out of this.|

Maybe tonight with the performance and the terrible scenes afterwards, things are so bad that the players will have been blown out of the lethargy that seems to have taken over in recent games.
And in the cold light of day, we as a fanbase have to unite and get behind the team on Saturday and beyond, especially if we have a new manager in place.

If we get someone who has been successful, make sure they come with the assistant they were successful with.

Is this a new rule? Obviously it is easier for medical staff to deal with an incident without the distraction of the match and hopefully the person is alright. However, people have obviously had medical incidents in the stands before and I don't remember matches being stopped previously.

Dangerous scoreline. Would like to see five or six more before I can relax.
|The only bad thing I can say about that...|

...is Celina getting booked for celebrating. If he scores too many he'll soon get banned!
However, right now, I couldn't care less. Brilliant performance by all, clinical finishing, great result against a genuinely good team.
Well done Paul Cook and all the team.
|Come on Town.|

Game management and all that.
|Glad to get to half-time.|

We're not playing terribly, but really need a bit of a kick up the backside. Fleetwood are causing a few too many problems for my liking and if it carries on like this it seems inevitable that they nick a goal.
