Is this poxy summer going to scupper our early form
We are suffering the worst and wettest summer in living memory and I don't know if New York is still on vacation in the UK, because when he arrived the weather improved, but now its damp cold and more like November . Passing teams like grass not mud to strut their stuff and I have this horrible feeling that most pitches are cutting up two months a head of normal.
May, June, and July broke all rain records and is continuing into August. Big clumsy teams don't mind the mud, but our footballing play makers hate it. We still need to play football, and Pardew is very aware we need players that don't mind getting dirty and we still need that midfield
player, who will mix it with the roughest.
My first visit to the Valley with my new season ticket this Saturday and I am really looking forward to it, although I feel the match against Sheffield Wednesday is a must win game for both teams, so I will be incredibly nervous.
