Well one really.
The only choice after yesterday is to look at the situation and think about what went wrong, why and how you can try and avoid it all happening again – but what you can’t do is panic. Knee-jerk reactions would be a quick route to disaster. We are only 4 games in, one excellent, one promising, one disappointing and one bad. Perhaps worryingly that represents the timeline too.
I am backing the players we’ve got. I backed them a week ago after the Wimbledon game and I’ll do so again after Ashford. Excuses or not injuries cripple you. Perhaps Deano will be back on Saturday – we need him. Maybe Grossie will be back we need him too. We desperately need Carl back and hope he is available next week at Staines. We also could do with James Gray and Steve Hughes but they’ll be some time yet.
We have a reserve game tomorrow night at Hayes & Yeading where most of those who haven’t played 90 minutes will have an opportunity to state their claim.
Of course the other option is to panic … but that’s not really an option is it?
