Hi everyone. It's been a while since my last diary entry, in fact back to the FA Cup tie at Watford. That was a tough night and they deserve credit for that.
We went to City and it was heartbreaking to lose the way we did. We then went to Vicarage Road and Watford put us under all sorts of pressure. We managed to get away with a 1-0 win and we now travel to Stevenage, another tie we'll have to be ready for.
I thought the lads were nice and bright against Wigan. We started well, which was all-important on the night, got ourselves 2-0 up and then 3-0 up in the second half. They came back into it, scored a goal and had a couple of chances but overall, a good job done.
The transfer deadline day saw Louis Saha and Ryan Nelsen come into the squad.
I've played against Louis many times and he's a great player, a top professional. Ryan is another experienced defender who has been around the Premier League a long time now. They will both bring more experience to the squad and will be great signings for us, I'm sure.
A few lads went out, Seb Bassong, Charlie (Vedran Corluka) Steven Pienaar, Pav. I've played a number of times with 'Bass' and I'm sure he'll do well at Wolves. I wish them all the best. The fans loved Pav and so did the lads, a greay guy, and we all wish him well.
Now it's all about Liverpool. It's always a special trip for me because I made my debut at Anfield back in April, 2005. That seems like a long time ago now!
We managed a fine 2-0 win there at the end of last season and I'm sure this will be a great game, as both teams are playing well. We go there confident and we'll give everything to get the right result.
Until next time!
