This guy knows his football (although he also described Dex’s little flick to Hutchinson as Batistuta-esque, which is probably overstating it a bit).
But I have to disagree with him.
Yes, we are playing some awesome football, that is easy on the eye and exactly how I like to see things being played.
Yes, in Sean O’Driscoll we have a manager who seems to have a deep footballing philosophy – choose the right blend of characters and do the right things at the right times and things will come together.
Yes, although still a bit light in defence, our squad looks absolutely transformed from the thin pickings we had just four weeks ago.
However, there is one great big fly in the ointment.
Our manger may be great, our squad may be great, our individual talent may as good or better than anyone else in the division.
But, due to circumstance, we have not had a proper pre-season – so I predict we will fly until we hit the rush of games around Christmas and then tail off in the New Year.
This is nothing to be ashamed of, and I’m sure it will be entertaining right till the end.
However, “dead certs for promotion” is being really optimistic and it’s just a bit too early for that.
