To say I’m deflated would be quite an understatement. I felt invested in last season’s squad, but the process of dismantling it has begun. There’s no room for sentiment in football, and if the budget for next season is well spent, we’ll be tilting at the title.

It feels odd to be preaching patience at the end of January, but this bizarre season, twisted out of shape by forces beyond anyone’s control, throws convention out of the window. Dean Keates is still fine-tuning his side, and Tuesday’s game was an interesting indicator of his progress, up against a side which plays in a very similar manner, and looks to have clicked.

Putting a comedy Brazilian commentary over Andy Morrell’s goal of the season trophy winner seemed like just a bit of fun at the time.
