Crawley Town verdict: Last week was good, hopefully the week ahead is one of excitement and hope rather than one of fighting and fear

What a fantastic week last week was off the pitch at Crawley Town football club.

It started with £5 tickets being announced for the FA Cup replay with Southend United. That was then followed by the very amusing news that Harry Kewell had been relieved of his duties after just fourteen games in charge at Notts County.

Shouldn’t laugh about Harry really, I’m sure he’s loyal at home to his wife and that’s what matters really.

Although maybe in your next Job Harry, you could try being a bit more loyal to the people who give you a chance in the first place and certainly to the fans that backed you!

However the off field excitement wasn’t quite matched on the pitch by the players. Firstly a 2-1 defeat at Gillingham after we had led and been in total control cost us a place in the next round of the Checkatrade Trophy.

That was then followed by a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Grimsby Town on Saturday when really the game had 0-0 written all over it. It was a poor game, but one Reds could and should of got something out of. To all the fans that travelled it was disappointing to concede so late and leave Cleethorpes empty handed.

So we now move on to back to back home games, first up the much anticipated and exciting Cup replay with Southend which is sure to see a 3000+ crowd.

That’s then followed by a home game with Crewe this Saturday, who like ourselves are hovering mid table at present, not quite sure which way this season is going to take them.

So come on Gabriele, show us Reds fans what sort of season this is going to be!

Hopefully one of excitement and hope, rather than one of fighting and fear.
