Play for the third goal was lovely, Piroe finding space behind the defence and Dhanda with a good pass.

God it's nice to see some decent football.

Steve Cooper was an absolute fraud.

He sucked all the love and enjoyment out of football.

These players seem to enjoy playing football again… with a bit of freedom.

Long may it continue

Some observations from the concourse:
Benda - upgrade on woodman already
Cabango - turns out I was wrong about him, he can pass a football
Cooper - loan done him world of good, looks capable at this level
Dan Williams - looks like he’s been in our midfield for years, should start for me.
Dhanda - best game for us. Looks to suit running from deep in a midfield 3.
Whittaker - excellent. Strong, Pacy, direct.
Piroe - looks an asset, strong and quick.
Joseph - quick and strong, perhaps not ready just yet but looks better than Cullen.

Think we will give a side or two a bloody tuning this year. Perhaps getting ahead of myself but I am just thankful to enjoy watching my club after two years of s**t. The swans are back.

This.

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

In a spooky coincidence those percentages are a almost a reversal of the possession stats.72%:28%


Side? I am on nobody's side, because nobody is on my side, little orc.

Dhanda is a player who really should be better under RM than he could be under Cooper.

He’s always (under Cooper) been a frustrating player that you can see has talent but just can’t impact a game - maybe he just hasn’t been allowed to?
