More Than Just 3 Points


Last night Blues managed to secure a huge three points that not only meant we moved up to 13th (With a game in hand) but it was a massive morale boost for the players and goes a little towards repairing relations with the fans. Defeat last night would have been so demoralizing I don’t think Zola would have had any support left, victory means we’ve got something positive to talk about especially as it puts us 8 points above the old gold and black.

I’m not about to say its proof we need to give Zola even more time but as I mentioned the other day here he’s not exactly miles behind Rowett’s worst run. If this is the green shoots beginning it’s something we should certainly encourage and support. We’ve never been a club that has it easy and I do think we’ve been spoiled by success in our recent history which has given fans an expectation that wasn’t there when I started going.

Maikel Kieftenbeld opened the scoring after a poorly held cross fell to his feet. It could have been that “bit of luck” we needed to be honest as that has been one of the most used arguments of late. Blues haven’t had that bit of luck., it must have felt like continuing though for the second.

David Davis once again netted in a local derby, the big man knows when to pick his goals and loves them coming on derby day. He netted the second goal following a deflected Che Adams pass, scoring within the box with a shot like a bullet into the bottom left after appearing seemingly from nowhere.

One of the things that makes last night more sweet is that we got the three points with only ten men following the controversial sending off of Paul Robinson following an altercation with Jon Dadi Bodvarsson. The incident surrounded an alleged punch while Robinson was trying to get a hand off himself as the pair rolled on the floor. Robinsons reaction was quite aggressive in appearance but the Wolves players made a right meal of it and influenced the decision and with Robinson’s preceding him he was shown a red.

I sincerely hope this is the start of better things and with 5th Placed Leeds our next opponents next week at St Andrews a draw would be a great sign that things are falling into place. Wolves were one of the six games of teams below us and we picked up 2 more points than I initially envisaged, lets keep that up. It’s not done yet so lets KRO!


  1. It was a very good performance from Blues. In the first half we played some good football in patches, but with it being a local derby, we had to battle as well. Both goals were opportunist goals, but both were deserved because of the hard work the team were putting in. The second half, after Robinsons dismissal, it was backs to the wall stuff, but even then, we still managed to create a couple of chances.
    With 3 or 4 players back from injury or suspension, the team looked more solid. and Bielik looks as if he will add a lot to our defence. We still have a long way to go, but I think with the players we will have available over the next few weeks, we should not have to worry about relegation.

  2. Fantastic result and a real gutsy performance, well done Zola and players to find that after last week’s horror show can only be a good thing KRO

  3. it was good to see us win 10 men against 13 the ref had a shocker also the linesman when robbo and big daddy went over he flagged for a wolves throw not flagging for a foul he missed the offside goal. I
    really thought the ref was trying to get wolves a 2nd goal. there was 7 bookings when there should off only been 2 shotton for his tackle and big daddy for his head on robbo, the others bookings were trivial anyway onwards and upwards KRO

  4. This was the day that , the blues players got belief …It was the game that even without the two main strikers .And a few other star players in the squad they still found the force was with them …It was the day that the players give there all for the club and realised that they also have a dreams that can come true ..It was a game that Zola also realised that we have a box of heroes at Stan’s and the players are behind him …All blues need now is for the fans to realise that they have a great part in making the team great and throw away the dummies and give the team the support that we all know will drive the team to glory …Give them the power bluenose’s ..Their dream can only happen with your strength..COME ON
