When thinking, or should I say typing, aloud earlier I pondered the thought 'when did we last win back-to-back games, let alone 3 games in a row,' something we are - 3 in a row - aiming for tomorrow night...
The back-to-back victories, before the league win at Burnley and of course FA cup quarter final win at Fratton against Birmingham, is the 2nd time this season we have managed this - having beaten Coventry in a 3rd round replay and then Sunderland in the 4th round in our next game, but it is some 15-months since we last managed 3 wins on the spin!
Between 30th August and 18th September 2008 we went on an unbeaten run winning 3 games in a row against Everton (a), Boro (h) and Vitoria (h).
Our best run of unbeaten games this season stands at 4...
Between 2nd January and 31st January 2010, when we lost to Citeh (a), we had drawn with Coventry (h), beaten Coventry (a), beaten Sunderland (h) and drawn with West Ham (h).
Our best run of results unbeaten before this was about a year ago when we went on a 5 game unbeaten run...
Between 14th March and 22nd April, when we lost at Manyoo (a), we drew with Boro (a), beat Everton (h), drew with Hull (a), drew with West Brom (h) and beat Bolton (h).
Before this we also had a 5 game unbeaten run late in 2008, this was achieved between 8th November and 4th December 2008, when we lost against Wolfsburg (g), as we beat Sunderland (a), drew with West Ham (a), drew with Hull (h), drew with Milan (h) and beat Blackburn (h).
They say wins breed confidence, so having won our last 2 games we go into the home game with Birmingham tomorrow in 'good spirits', right?
So lets hope we can complete our first hat-trick of wins on the bounce in 15-months or so with another over the Brummies eh!
Much like losing, as we have found, they say winning becomes a habit - the longer we can stretch an unbeaten run, and the more wins this can include along the way, the more anything is possible...
