Watching some of the TV coverage and interviews of fans, I would like to ask the question, why we want to play Chelsea in our first game back in the Premier League?
Is it not crazy for us NUFC fans to be hanging on to the fact that we could once compete with the likes of Chelsea and Man Utd, albeit, occasionally?
I would settle for a home game against Blackpool if honest, or Wigan, I mean, they're shite aren't they?!
Sky Sports have interviewed our fans (again) and yes, they might have got the only fans that had managed to cram 10 pints in before teatime, or the kids that had 'teacher training' but, for the love of god, why the hell do we want to return to the Premier League against Chelsea? The answer, according to one young gent;
'A win against Chelsea first game, will see us set up nicely..' I turned it off about then!
We will be riding on the crest of promotion for sure, but a win against Chelsea, home or away is..ambitious, to be fair, it would be a miracle.
No, on the flip side, we could get a tonking and see our heads knocked in for the season, it happens you know.
As I rant away, I just wonder what Chelsea fans must be thinking about their first game, I bet they fancy playing us too...
As a delusional mag, I obviously see us finishing in Europe, hell, a top three finish isn't out of site...is it? I'm a realist, I'd take 6th now!!!
