Days like these

22 Mar

Saturday 22nd   March 2014

Derby County                     5.0      Nottingham Forest                      

(Bryson 3, Hendrick, Russell)                                         

On days like these, you have to give credit to the team that were better than yours and accept the result with good grace and hopefully, a touch of class.

Days like these come around once in a while in football and you have to remember that they are part of the game: they remind you to enjoy and cherish those victories that do come your way.

Days like these really do test your faith in whether being an obsessive compulsive fan is really worth it.

Days like these make you wish you weren’t an obsessive compulsive fan.

Days like these are rubbish: but not all days are like this in football.

There will no doubt be more days like these. 

But there will also be better days than days like these.

(Well there must be, mustn’t there?)

      Thanks for that. We were shocking but Derby blew us away and McClaren has gone up in many people’s estimation.
