Another loss at home , another sending off, another excuse laden post match interview with Russell Slade. Yes, it may well come together soon enough Russell, but how soon? Its no use getting a run of good results in April, it may be too late.

So, five goals, no sending’s off, no penalties, no 21 man brawls, and the referee didn’t cower in the corner once. All in all, a pretty uneventful five goal thriller and let’s face it, that’s three defeats at home already and it’s only September. The season has now started, but only just.

What a difference two weeks can make! Just a fortnight ago it was all doom and gloom; people were convinced Russell Slade would be departing to make way for Dennis Wise, resigned to a relegation battle and already asking serious questions of the team and the coaching staff. Back to real time, we’ve just had two impressive wins on the bounce, picking up three precious points at Carlisle whom we never seem to beat, and Tony Bloom has come out in the media and professed his alliance to Slade.

Having worked in The City of London for many years, I am aware that we are due to play Saarfend United this coming Saturday. Saarfend like Brighton & Hove has a posh part, it’s called Thorpe Bay though compared to Hove; Thorpe Bay is a bit like Moss Side, apparently.

Peter Taylor makes the familiar trip to Withdean this weekend, 7 years or so since he told Dick Knight, whatever he was apportioning to the playing budget, wasn’t enough. It was a strange period in Albion history, as everyone expected Taylor to rock up at another club soon after he left the Albion, although he didn’t for quite some time. Albion folklore suggests that Dick’s preferred replacement was former Cameroon manager Winifred Schafer, it is rumoured the pair met at Gatwick and agreed terms, only for Schafer to change his mind (with a little help!) and fly home the next day. Uncle Dick was then left with an arranged Press Conference at The Grand but no ‘star’ manager to unveil, until Mr Hinshelwood stepped in to the breach. Of course like Steve McLaren he was first choice all along, really!

You know it’s desperate times when you’re considering writing to the Football Association to plead with them to hand Southampton even more points deductions, merely to save the Albion from being pulled right to the foot of the table, despite currently only being one place above!
