We nearly nearly had them today in what was a great return to top flight football at Bloomfield Road. What a day it was with a great atmosphere and some great football too. It’s astonishing that we technically started with 4 strikers today, Omerod, Grandin, Taylor-Fletch and Varney. Thats the way to play football, today West Ham went to Manchester United with one up front and Blackburn tried to pack the midfield at home to Arsenal, boring stuff and not effective, both lost.
Fulham’s first goal was very lucky, it looked like a tug on Evatt in the build up and offside, after that it looked like every decision was going against us but as ever we carried on, deserved to get level and then take the lead. Overall Mike Oliver had a bit of a mare along with his lino on the East stand.
Luke Varney played well considering he only joined on Friday, yet another reject from another club coming good for the Pool. Hopefully with another few games under his belt he’ll knock a few more in.
David Vaughan was superb today, MOTM for me. He’s had no problems making that step up, with Southern coming back soon (he warmed up on the pitch before the game) it should allow Vaughan to get a little further forward in the coming matches.
So a little break now for the internationals, we’ve a friendly in Latvia and then up to Newcastle who earned a credible draw at Wolves today. After last years performance at Newcastle I’m hope we decide to turn up, last years 4-1 drubbing was a real disappointment.
Three games in, 4 points on the table, 10th the table, three entertaining games of football. Good times!!!
