A lone wolf speaks as a star says farewell (for now)

18 Feb

I promised yesterday that I wouldn’t mention the Brentford – Wolves game again until the weekend. The intention today had been to look at Leyton Orient, who take on Stevenage tonight with a chance to close the gap at the top of League One to two points (albeit with two more games played).

In addition, there was the news that “long legged midfielder” Toumani Diagouraga  (the club’s words) has joined Portsmouth on loan for a month. I’ve a lot of time for ‘Toums’ and so, at least, the positive message from Mark Warburton is that this seems very much a tactical decision.

To read the rest of this article, season 2013/14 is now available to download onto Kindle, in full. Containing previously unseen content, you can do so here for less than the cost of one matchday programme.

 Thanks for reading over the course of the campaign. For now I need to make space on this page for any follow up.  The ‘close season’ / World Cup columns continue in full, further on in this site.

    Decent well balanced view of things for a change. He certainly doesn’t go on the wolves forums then, some of the crap I’ve been reading on there goes from they will beat us comfortably 1-5 (and win the league by at least 10 clear points), and that we are long ball merchants, and a dirty side who will try and stop THEM playing (what).

    Would be nice if KJ and their team go into the game with that attitude, they may be in for a bit of a suprise.

      Have to say that it took me by surprise – in a good way. Haven’t bothered with the message boards, given some of the previous commentary I’ve received.

    Actually I do go on the Wolves message boards or at least on http://www.molineuxmix.co.uk. However, I know what you mean 😉

    We all have ’em you know. It is all part of the tapestry of football fanhood

    Having watched all Three teams mentioned several times this season, I would not right off Orient. They have played some really good stuff when I have seen them and are on a par with Wolves and Bees at their best and should not be under estimated.

    Squad size and strength in depth may be another matter but if the footballing gods smile on Orient and they keep their first eleven or so fit they won’t go away. I think it’s Brentford plus either Wolves or O’s to go up automatically.
