Ben Wilmot’s recent 21st birthday marked his ascension from a boy to a man. The occasion also nudged open the goalscoring floodgates, resulting in a first for his country and now a first for the club.
There’s been a degree of reflection and stock taking of the season so far during the international break. My own view for what it’s worth, as these reports have probably reflected, is that us getting to where we’ve got to without being particularly convincing is a Good Thing. If Vlad was giving the impression of thinking we were sorted there’d be a concern. This isn’t the case at all, and as such woe betide the division when we get our shit together.
Win your home games and draw your away games and you’ll be promoted, that’s what Jas has been telling us for the last ten years. But this away draw at QPR, after a poor second half performance, didn’t feel like a promotion pushing side. Jon, Jason and Mike gather to discuss the game, and hear from Vladimir Ivic in the post match press conference.
