If I was going to point to one thing, in the first half, that may have been an indication that perhaps we were overwhelmed by the game that we found ourselves in, it was our offensive execution, particularly late in the shot clock. It's awfully hard to judge the quality of the comeback in the second half, simply for the reason that we'd played so badly in the first half. Albion had every reason to believe that we couldn't come back. Am I pleased with the grit Yeah. Does it mean anything I don't know.
Albion will be mentally strong because of what happened last year. They had some big games at the back of last season and they dug in deep - they'll do it again. They have the players that have done it before and players whose second nature is to fight and battle.
From worthy Edward, King of Albion,
My lord and sovereign, and thy vowed friend,
I come, in kindness and unfeigned love,
First to do greetings to thy royal person,
And then to crave a league of amity,
And lastly to confirm that amity
With nuptial knot, if thou vouchsafe to grant
That virtuous Lady Bona, thy fair sister,
To England's King in lawful marriage.
As an additional contingency we have redirected the Landing Platform Dock HMS Albion towards (Ivory Coast), and reduced the notice to move for other force elements should they be required,
We are not going to risk Michael for the game at Grimsby but we fully expect him to be back in action for the league game at West Bromwich Albion on Sunday,
