SA’s essay: Sam’s Happy, we’re happy. Out of the bottom three

Jake's take on Big Sam

John McCormick writes: Ed posted on facebook that he was dressed for winter before he headed off for his normal berth in the North Stand. Why shouldn’t he feel the cold, given that there has been a chill wind blowing for so long that I can feel it as far south as Liverpool.

But after Monday, and then this weekend, perhaps he won’t feel so frozen out. The players certainly shouldn’t as they have exited the bottom three and are now in the land of the living.

Can they stay there? Let’s see what our manager thinks, in a post-match e-mail sent exclusively to M Salut and maybe one or two others.

Dear Colin,

I think that result is the perfect finish to a big week for us; a win on Monday night and then another win today is as a result of all of the hard work we’ve put in.

There’s belief in the players and that’s now showing on the pitch and hopefully that gives everyone the confidence to know that we’re all pulling together in the right direction.

For me, this week has left me feeling really satisfied with what I’ve seen from the players.

Two back-to-back victories and then two pieces of outstanding quality to win the game today from Patrick van Aanholt and Duncan Watmore.

Our aim is to pick up more and more points and climb up the table as quickly as we can and hopefully we can continue to do that.

Thanks for your support,

Sam Allardyce
