TERRY'S TALK: We’re feeling Brad all over after a solid performance and win
10:00am Thursday 4th December 2008 in Terry's Talk
IT WAS another excellent win at the weekend at Bradford in the FA Cup and it is amazing how things have turned around from going ten games without a victory.
I wouldn’t say we were at our best, but it was another decent solid performance.
We had been hoping to get someone like Arsenal or United in the draw rather than Sheffield United.
Of course it was also a shame the lads couldn’t keep the cleansheet run going, but I thought we were very sound again at the back and Cat [Glenn Morris] produced a couple of excellent saves. I also felt Jordan Spence came in and did very well on his senior debut, and for such a young lad he put in an assured performance.
It was also nice to see Jason and Danny get on the scoresheet, because it means that we are not always dependent on the strikers.
The pair of them had a little bit of fun with their goal celebrations as well.
We had been playing wrestling on the computer the night before, on what was a rare overnight stay for us, and said whoever scores first had to do the celebration John Cena does on the game.
Of course young Jason did that, and both him and Danny also had a little dig at Solomon Shields and Loick Pires.
Myself and Boydy clocked the pair of them on the training pitch the other week. We thought it was refreshing to see two young boys putting in an extra shift.
But the next thing we see is Sol, who never manages to score, rolling the ball into an empty net and then running over to the corner flag and inviting Loick to join him in some kind of chicken dance.
To say I was embarrassed for the boys is an under statement and I’m sure they will be taking plenty of stick for this for a while. We now go to Northampton full of confidence that we can keep this excellent run we are on going, although we do know it can be a difficult place to go to at times.
Last season they turned us over, and I always feel that having been there with Yeovil as well in past, that you either seem to get turned over or come away with an excellent result.
There never seems to be an in-between with them and I think that is how they have been going as well this season, especially after Colchester beat them at their place on Saturday.
