With the new season upon us, I wanted to jump in because I feel some of our fanbase are heading into the new season with a negative mindset at a time where everyone should be excited and ready for another go at promotion.
I will keep the following points brief as many - myself included - will be fed up of hearing about some of these...
In no particular order:
The kit really doesn't matter. I mean yes, okay, it perhaps shows a disorganisation from a commercial perspective, and we will have lost some revenue, but it's hardly worth getting worked up about. It will be sorted soon and everyone will rave about how nice it looks and all will be forgotten. Move on.
Team strengthening. Yes, we need a few CBs (it seems we are close to one, who imo would be a good signing). However, aside from this I don't see why people are fretting at the lack of signings this summer. Can you remember our run of form the second half of last year? It wasn't pretty to watch, but it landed us comfortably in the playoff spots and we were one of THE form teams. George Boyd is a great addition, and I really don't think we need many more. We have a very capable, experienced, and familiar team as it is.
On a similar note, we seem to not be good at getting business done fast, but when you look at the calibre of player we are in for, it's not going to be easy. Let the guys in charge worry about it and trust they have the same ambitions that we as fans do - to have a positive season.
Football is back! Aren't you sick of wondering what your existence is all for on a Saturday morning every week? Gosh, even when we were going into a season with Stevie May and Nuhiu upfront together, I was still excited for the Wednesday family to come together, to have a few drinks in the pub with the lads before the games, and see what the season brought.
The flouncing after the Rangers game was pathetic. It's our only loss this pre-season, and while it was poor (from what I heard!), it came a week in time for a good kick up the arse. We now know we can't be complacent against Preston.
In life, seek and you will find. I.e. if you focus on the negatives such as the lack of kit, the need for a CB or two etc you will feel negativity... Whereas if you think 'wow, we have Fessi, Rhodes, Fletcher, Tom Lees, Westwood, etc. We are considered one of the strongest teams in the league. We are not a selling club. We have a great fanbase. We have a great chariman. We have a good manager, then you will feel positive and take the season as it comes. There's no point stressing out about things we can't control. Just support the team and if things aren't going well, trust that Chansiri - who has a lot of money riding on this project - will make it right.
Enjoy the new season fellow Wednesdayites - it will be another roller coaster ride, I'm sure!
