After all these weeks of marking time, United have now reached the 'nitty gritty' as far as they are concerned anyway. It may not be the end of the world if they don't get three points tomorrow against a difficult Glenavon team, but we at 'Sport think United have to take 7 points from their next three league fixtures, not an impossible task, but one we think United should be capable of. Our manager Spike, has to make at least two changes to his starting line-up of last Saturday, JT is suspended following his sending-off last week at Portadown and Thommo is injured.
So will Spike reinstate Archie in defence, alongside Kyley, against probably the most feared attack in the local game or does he have somebody else in mind. Who will come in for the injured Thommo is another problem our manager has to solve? Will it be the available again Gavin, or does he restore Marky to rightback and promote Tony to midfield, decisions, decisions, who would be a football manager? It's not really a question that, we already know the answer, nearly every fan thinks he can do a better job than any manager, give or take a few.
The conditions could play a part in tomorrow's game, as its destined to be breezy, but its the same for both teams, so whoever adapts themselves to the conditions will have a say on who triumphs on the day. The ref is none other than Tim, 'nice bit dim,' Marshall, he's not the worst by a long chalk, but he is weak. In saying that he would be hard pressed to be as incompetent as the last three officials, we have had in our last three home games. So all we can hope for tomorrow, is no controversial decisions and a good sporting game, so come Sky Blues, lets shag those Lurgan Sheep!
