You have to love the guy don't you? Hot on the heels of another inept personal and team performance, Captain Kev has come out and told the OS how we are targeting victory at Palace on Saturday.
Or are we? Sadly not. Nolan talks about digging people out and waving the finger in the dressing room, building up to a Scotty Churchill big finish. But when it comes to the crescendo, it all falls away as something of a damp squib.
Is Captain Kev predicting three points on Saturday? Maybe. But not definitely. One point would do apparently! Nolan says, "If we react in a positive manner on Saturday and go away and get something, whether it is a point or all three, we can't afford to give sloppy goals away."
So expect another conservative display. Doctor Evil and Smiling Kev seem to think we are still in the Premiership, their targets are so low! Kick an advertising board or two, grumble about mistakes at set pieces and late goals, then carry on like before.
Where is the bloody ambition? When will Nolan stop talking the talk and start walking the walk exactly?
