Bad news, I am absent at the moment so this ramble comes to you via a mobile in a Disneyland hotel. Far more exciting than the kitchen I used on Tuesday night, at least.
While I can’t provide you will a full blown run down of my feelings, mainly because they are currently focused firmly towards buying some Mickey Mouse ears before the day’s out, the result during the week has left me suitably excited about our prospects this weekend.
If you’re going, enjoy it – I hope it’s another great result and performance for you to lust over. Although I doubt any of you could match the fun I’m having eating my body weight in waffles and overdosing on French people conveniently forgetting that I WAS HERE FIRST.
Win today’s match-up with Walsall and we could be a top half side by the end of the day. Not bad for a side without a home, starting with -10 points, and riddled with in-fighting and a bunch of chronic dipsticks responsible for this mess.
How are they getting on?
They’re never the most fashionable team in the league, but for the majority of 2013 Walsall have proven themselves to be a match for anyone at this level. They gave the play-offs an unlikely shot last season but just missed out, and yet here they are again – back in the early running for a top 6 space.
As for recent form, they’ve lost one in eight, so that should tell you everything you need to know about their capabilities. As phenomenal as we are, I can’t see us giving them another tonking like we managed last December though. They’ll make this tough.
Who could cause us trouble?
I’ll admit, I’m abroad so my research is as limited as the time I have to write this. What I do know however is that Will Grigg, master goal scorer from last season, has moved on, so they’ve had to find a new guy to lead the line. Craig Westcarr is trying his best to do that with 6 league goals this season – a more than respectable return for a team which actually hasn’t scored that many at all.
Sky Blues team news
What changes can you make to a side that has just walloped the unbeaten league leaders? Injuries permitting, we’re going for the same side as Tuesday. Jordan Clarke patrolling the defence, Fleck and Thomas controlling the middle, Clarke and Wilson leading the line, and Franck Moussa scaring the defence with his wiggliness and lob wedge of a right foot. Lovely.
