Well, it certainly has been an interesting week. In a way, being away for a week was a good thing, because what I’m left to report on shows perfectly the popular notion that you’re only as good as your last game. Heroes after the trouncing of Sheffield United, our title challenge was being written off as Hull came away with three points at the weekend.
Over the next few posts I’ll reflect on this a little, looking at whether the performances really were that extreme, and where all this leaves us. Of course, there’s also the small matter of a Champions League game against Porto tonight to look forward to.
The week began with the Carling Cup, so that is as good a place to start as any.
