Glenn Murray scored 31 goals last term, he got us promoted. Wilf scared teams, Muzza scored goals.
We are lucky as a club to now see ourselves above some ‘Staying-Up Stalwarts’ in WBA, Fulham and Sunderland. We owe that largely to Mr Pulis and his sheer determination to keep his record of never having been relegated alive and well.
However, I am of the opinion that the greatest event of this season so far; better than any signing, goal, cross or even change in management, is the return of the one and only Glenn Murray.
He will add even more passion to the fan’s chanting, home and away. He will scare defenders when they realise this is the man that scored 31 goals in one season. He is the man that can score with his head, left and right. He will fight for the club with blood sweat and tears.
I look at the club in 2010 at Hillsborough. Every player would’ve given their lives for the club then.
Now, im not so sure. Perhaps that is Premier League football, or maybe the standard of player Warnock wanted? Or both.
Hill, Derry, Ambrose, Paddy, Jules, Scannell, Butterfield. All loved the club and you could tell.
Now, I would only say; Jules, Delaney, Murray are in the same category.
We need that passion, we need to dig in, we need some luck. We need 14 points.
We need Murray.
