A mixed start to the season for us. You can’t argue with 6 points out of 6 in the league, however we still have a skeleton squad and suffered defeat in the derby in the League Cup first round, or as the Preston fans call it the World Cup Final.
It was pretty gutting to lose in the match, however in the grand scheme of the season more games is the last thing we need with such a small squad.
From the opening fixtures there has been some good points, Barry Ferguson has started where he left of last season really controlling the midfield. There’s potential in Davies and Chopra once they are fitter and have Ince and Phillips on the wing supplying crosses.
Jack Robinson at left back looks really good at left back, currently Bob Harris has very little chance of starting unless Robinson picks up an injury or is recalled by Liverpool. Once we have a right back Broadfoot can rejoin MacKenzie and it should be a solid unit.
We go into this weekends match with Reading with still no additions to the squad, Tom Ince suspended and no sign of a right back. It’s all a little doom and gloom.
Anyway to cheer us up, I saw that Kwit Fit Insurance are running a competition to win a new shirt for any club to celebrate the start of the new season. There’s 25 shirts up for grabs and all you have to do is head over to the Facebook page, like it and then post which team you support on the competition image on the Facebook page.
There’s 237 entries so far, so the odds are pretty good and this season’s shirt is one of the better ones!
