We are spoiled

Post by Harry Redknapp on Sun Aug 22, 2010 9:27 pm

In the thread about the game tonight someone made the comment that we are spoiled. We have really high expectations for the team we support.

For perspective: we expect the Pilots to win most every game, and we certainly expect them to go unbeaten in the WCC this year.

I was just reading the English soccer news from this weekend. In the EPL, after 2 games there is 1 team out of 20 that has won both games. One.

In the Championship, the second division in England, they've played three games, and one team out of 24 has a 100% record. In League One it's 0/24 and in League 2 it's 1/24.

My point is that having a program that dominates like the Pilots do is rare in sports. I'm grateful for the chance to watch this season unfold.

I wish the one EPL team wasn't "that" one team, but your point is taken.

I know I wanted to see a bunch of goals Friday night. So did the rest of you. That's reasonable given the quality of the Pilots. But sometimes in football you completely dominate in every area but only score once. Whatever the score, when you watch a team like the Pilots you are watching something special.

It's only the first weekend and there's a lot of football left. Who knows how the season will end? The only way to find out is to sit back and watch.

That's why teams have to play the game -- because pre-game wishing and hoping is just hot air (even with the exceptional quality of content in this forum). Any game this season can take an unexpected turn. Any team can stymie another. Perfection is ever so rare and elusive.
