THE VIC MORGAN COLUMN: Football is a mystery isn't it?
6:00am Thursday 24th October 2013 in STFC News
IT’S a mystery this football isn't it?
One minute you think you've got it sussed, the next it’s back to the big drawing board in the corner.
The Town's last few games are a classic example of this. A young side playing with confidence and great style brought down to earth with a bump by a home defeat. What does this tell us?
Are football teams great one minute and disastrous the next? Of course not. There are lots of factors to consider.
Sometimes players have off nights or afternoons. Sometimes things that happen some days don't happen others. Sometimes the opposition are quite good. Maybe we don't give the other team enough credit.
Arsenal have also experienced the great one minute, flop the next, kind of week. Seemingly untouchable in the Premier League but beaten three days later in the Champions league by a half decent team.
We find out about a football team by its ability to react to defeat and even the greatest sides lose from time to time. That's what makes this game so fascinating.
Pure heaven one minute, pure hell the next. I guess if you asked any fan in the country if they go into every game truly confident their side will win, they'd say no.
That’s what makes the coach to trip to Oldham on Saturday one of anticipation and the journey back one of reflection.
Football is a mystery to all of us - a simple game that nobody truly masters.
Wrap up warm for Boundary Park.
