Go back a few weeks, our home game v Bolton – the boos were VERY clear at the end of the game and the manager got stick for the formation he was using.
Since then, we have put in a number of decent performances with a win v Bruce’s Sunderland and draws against Manchester City and Liverpool with pretty decent performances to boot.
What has happened?
To be honest I’m not sure! 😀
Maybe it is because Alex McLeish is using a more attacking formation, maybe it is due to the new board and their apparent willingness to support the manager with funds for players, maybe the squad have just discovered some belief with themselves. They definitely seem to be operating more as a team and we are playing pretty good football as we come forward and defending well too – only 3 goals conceded in the last 3 games.
Whatever the reason, it’s good. Let’s hope it continues!
