Nick Day must be about the best PA guy in the league. His speech leading up to the silence last week was another brilliant one and all through the games he keeps the spirit going with appropriate humour, the interviews at half-time show good knowledge and he deals with the new owners in style without being obsequious. (Yes, I know he's a professional on the radio, but so is Robbie Savage.)
Secondly, the system of choosing MOTM needs looking at. To choose McChrystal, after a fair OK game, before Lawrence after a brilliant free kick and assist from the corner or two-goal Taylor or Lockyer who was way better in defence was rather illogical. How is the MOTM selected and do the selectors choose a player just to meet him after the game?
Having attended the FFSC sponsored games and watching from up in the Gods of the Dribuild you get a great perspective of the whole game. It is from there that the quiet encouragement and organising that MM does of the whole defence is far more visible, and possibly the reason for the group choosing the MoM as they did (and as the FFSC did in choosing MM at one of our sponsored games).
It is my veiw that MM and Lockyer really complement one another far better than any other central pairing. MM quietly helps Tom, and in return Mark plays better as he knows he can rely on the younger man completely.
