I know that people are going on about Leicester, Man U and Chelsea. But far more importantly, I’ve found something nice to say about Yeovil – they played bloody well against Leyton Orient this afternoon and – but for a bizarre refereeing decision which denied us a nailed on penalty – would have won.
It’s important to me (but much more to the town) that Yeovil do not drop out of the football league. This requires both York or Dagenham to be even worse than us and I firmly believe, based on our battling 0-0 draw at Brisbane Road that we have both the players and the manager to keep us up.
I am not of the view that our plight is about John Fry and the Board. It is not necessary to blame anyone for our catastrophic drop from Championship top dogs three years ago , to the losers of the bottom league today. The reason we are here today is because we have lost a lot of games we should have won and not won many games at all.
This may be the fault of the players, or of fate or of the ludicrous brilliance of other clubs, but it is not the fault of the Board or John Fry – who quite clearly are as upset about our plight as any fan.
The only thing that fans can do right now is to get behind the players and give them our support.
The scenes after today’s game were heartening.
As for Leyton Orient’s show of mass petulance – I’ll leave you to make your own mind up! Looks like those phone batteries didn’t last long!
