Success for the Cherries means the fans get to see their team winning and spend Saturday evening and Sunday gazing at the League Two table.
Top of the league by two points and TFTSE is still in a daze that we have been for so long.
Unfortunately, a winning team is always going to lose sometime and lose big, just as happened on Saturday. It was just one of those days when it didn’t quite happen and was a reminder to the team that this league is not as easy as they might think.
Rochdale were always going to be dangerous and after losing at home to Accrington the previous week they got a stark reminder of how close League Two is. This probably inspired them to ensure that it didn’t happen again and what better way to reply than with a 4-0 win away from home.
Hopefully, the Cherries will reply in as convincing fashion at Bradford next week and ensure top spot is safe for another 7 days.
Typically, the Cherries worse defeat of the season coincided with the biggest crowd of the season. Not an unusual scenario over the years. As soon as the floating fan rears its head the Cherries generally go to pieces. I heard one bloke complaining that he had come 60 miles to see ‘that’.
Well, perhaps if the glory hunting fool had made a bit more of an effort and come before he would have seen a winning team, we have been top of the league for 8 games now. He probably won’t be back until the next time we lose at home.
The Cherries have still only lost 4 games, so once again thanks Eddie and lets look forward to a proper South Coast derby next season.
