When the final whistle went yesterday my mood was oh so disappointed and angry. Oxford had done us a huge favour and yet again we still didn't take the opportunity to capitalise on Millwall's **** up. My mood didn't really lighten all Saturday evening and reading on SZ about 'bottled it' and Smoke flares' didn't help at all.

They say that if you get your feelings down on paper (electronic obviously) then it helps you understand those feelings better so I've sort of done that this morning and did it help? Sort of. I don't feel angry now, the disappointment is still hanging around but not as badly as yesterday as I keep imagining what it must be like on the Millwall board at the moment and that cheered me up a bit. I'm a long time optimist and whilst I try to control it, I can't help thinking where there's life there's hope. For all of our loss of points over the last few games we go into the Bury match still with the chance to make the play-offs. Just how unreal is that given our poor start and attempts to **** it all up at the death.

I have absolutely no idea what next Sunday will bring, nor what Southend team will turn up, physically or mentally. What I do know is that we'll be there in the West Stand giving it large on the bravado front before the game, living every painful/joyous moment during the game..........and the rest will have to wait I guess. This has been a bit of a ramble but I do feel better for it, and guess what...........I'm really looking forward to next Sunday............how about you?
