BSADIt’s hard to believe that there are already so many what-ifs and might-have-beens so early in the season. Of course, some of those what-ifs and might-have-beens continue to over-shadow events on the pitch, making our last two results seem trivial by comparison…and yet it’s also obvious that, while the shadows would still remain, a win or two would add some valuable, vital sunshine to the picture.

BSAD imageBSAD report: Really, the most enjoyable aspect of yesterday’s victory was that it summarised our successes so well. For the final action of 2003/03 had much in common with its best action, albeit that several of the personnel were less familiar. Some of it was ragged, some of it was a real struggle, much of it wasn’t especially pretty. But the attitude – determined, focused, assertive – overcame all of that in the end, enabling the team to build foundations for a deserved victory. Although we can play better, and we have played better, much of this term’s progress has been based upon performances like this.

BSAD imageBSAD report: This is a long way from being a crisis, still some distance from being a slip-up of any consequence. But the fact remains that we haven’t played at all well for the first sixty or seventy minutes of our last two League games and, as a result, have had to rescue draws with slightly desperate comebacks. It’s obvious that we’re good enough to beat sides like York City, yet on Saturday we failed to work out how to beat them.
