Well Done The Foxes !

The Fantastic Mr Fox
I’m not talking about Leicester although congrats to them on their Championship title win. Another set of Foxs, Morgan and his family, can be very pleased about how well the young man has  settled into the side to take the place of Wiggins. Great to see another youngster come in and do so well. 
As with Poyet and Cousins you do wonder why he wasn’t given a chance earlier. Perhaps placing a greater emphasis on the academy players isn’t such a daft idea after all. 
I’ve lost count of the number of players who make it with other teams after starting out with us never having made a first team appearance. We don’t have vast amounts to spend on transfer fees and wages and since we have traditionally invested heavily in our academy it would seem to make sense to offer a clear pathway. 
Tomorrow sees what originally was to have been the final home game of the season. That, of course, is now on Tuesday against Watford. It will be odd to finish the home season in midweek. I seem to recall that our final Prem season against Spurs was the last time. 
I'm not a fan of categorising games and the decision to make this a " gold game " was silly and looks even more so now. I bet there are many season ticket holders with unused free ticket vouchers. We need support more than ever and that aside, a few extra people would have spent more money. I doubt you'd persuade many to come along on Tuesday. 
Rovers are still chasing a play-off spot although that looks pretty remote. I hope they don’t make it only because I wouldn’t like to see the Venkys rewarded for the complete Horlicks they’ve made of running the club.  
It will of course be a very tough game. I’d be delighted with a point. Rovers are in a rich vein of form away and possess a potent strike force.  
At last Sordell showed on Monday what he is capable of. The finishes for all three of his goals were top drawer. It is pleasing to note that he was ably assisted by Harriott for two of them. 
I think a win is beyond us but if we did get it would pretty much guarantee safety.  
It is to be hoped that we don’t go watering the pitch again. I’ve had enough of our players falling over time and again. 
Here’s to safety as soon as possible and an end to this wretched season. 
Come On You Reds !
