Clearly, if you score six goals, you are not going to lose many games but conceding one goal in three games is excellent progress following the nightmare of the last couple of months.
If we are not conceding, there is too much potential for goals in this side to not win a lot of matches from here on in.
Genuinely pleased with that.

That's right, they drew 0-0 with Ipswich.

Good start. Pujara out without adding to his overnight score. Sounded a speculative review from listening to TMS. But just as well we did considering that one we didn't take yesterday.

Extraordinary goal scoring record for his country.

Ok, not going to lose sleep over not taking part in this competition again this season but we need a boost of confidence, among the crowd as much as anything to feel like this new era is taking shape.
A win is a win at the end of the day and as much as we'll hear 'Micky Mouse' Cup (which I don't disagree with), the pressure to perform and get results are going to multiply the longer we go on. Burton on Saturday won't be easy, particularly with a new squad.
Just think we've missed a trick tonight and a win tonight could have given us a springboard.

Long loading times on pages.
Double posts everywhere.
I do tend to get excited at the long loading times as I always associate it with 'big news' happening.

When I was about 8 years old, it was announced that PM, Warky and Terry Butcher were signing autographs at Solar in Sproughton Road one Friday evening.
Myself and my dad approached down the aisle they were in and I could see Russell Osman was there too so I was doubly excited another Town legend was drafted in. Directly in front me sat a man with his back to me sporting dark, wavy locks and without really looking, I opened my autograph book and said (politely as briefed by my dad) "Can I have your autograph please Mr Wark". When I looked up, it wasn't John Wark but the photographer instead and Russell had been dragged in as a replacement.
Mariner nearly fell off his chair laughing then regained his composure and said "Mr Wark's not here but I'll sign your book for you". I got his signature again a couple of years later, in a birthday card as by this time he was the club captain and therefore Junior Blues president.
I was a bit young for his stellar years here and am finding it hard to pick out individual moments from those early games I went to, but always remember him just being the go to man up top. And looking an absolute nightmare to play against.
By the time I was fully able to appreciate him, he was soon to be on his way to Arsenal for peanuts.
RIP Paul. Thanks for everything and hope England can provide a fitting tribute tomorrow.
