“You-are-Nationwide”, they sang. Well, we’ll see. But if the Hornets do return whence we came come May, there are some things that I for one won’t miss. One of these is the hint of desperation with which clubs like Leicester (and Wednesday, two years ago) attempt to impress upon you that they are a big club, long-enough established in the top flight to call themselves “Premiership”. Wednesday are currently finding out that this illusion is a veneer that doesn’t take much scraping away; Leicester, too, is a club that will be all too easily sucked into the maelstrom should their current more than capable side break up.
All in all, this was a disappointing performance; the defence was under pressure all night because we could not threaten their goal, not even on the counter. We got what we deserved on the night, and were fortunate not to get a hiding.
