I am writing these notes having just returned from a short trip in Malta, to where we’ll be flying in July next year for a week in pre-season.
Carolyn and I had the honour of meeting the Maltese prime minister and elsewhere, we held very positive meetings about pre-season. The details, along with information of a limited amount of exclusive VIP packages will be announced soon (sooner, in fact, than when the scoreboard will be working).
Last Saturday’s fantastic 3-1 win against Notts County topped a very positive display by our boys. I really enjoyed the game… especially the last three minutes.
I got the impression that Notts came to the ground thinking they would defeat us, so to send them packing in such a fashion was extra sweet.
In the dying moments of the derby, it was great to see Darius Henderson grab his first goal for the club. Darius now becomes part of an elite club, having scored in the top four divisions in England.
I can certainly see what Adam is trying to do with our squad, in terms of style and strategy. And if this squad can start firing even at 90% of their capabilities then I am very confident that we can win a lot of matches this season.
Having spoken to a number of the players, I often hear that the training sessions in the week are some of the best they have experienced in football. I’m full of hope that these sessions will continue to bear more fruit on the field.
As for Wycombe, I must commend their manager Gareth Ainsworth who has a done a good job at Adams Park on a limited budget. Wycombe took six points from us last season and I know we’ll be keen to change those fortunes this time around.
Come on you Stags!
