‘Watt’ a Feeling

Posted on Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

There’s something special about ‘match day’, an extra spring in the step, lots of early morning thoughts about team shape, tactics and so on.  Last Saturday we played a friendly and although it was a great workout for us, knowing everyone else had competitive matches meant we knew ‘something was missing’, that extra edge that comes from knowing the game means something.  Following our run-out at the Academy I watched a very good Heriot Watt side defeat Vale of Leithen 3-0 at Innerleithen. As ever, Michael has his side playing attractive football, set-up well and difficult to beat. On an early season pitch at Riccarton, I’m expect a cracking game this evening.  On the player front, Willie Bremner remains on the sidelines, however, on the upside both Alistair and Cloudy are both available again.  Like most people, I’ve spent the last few weeks watching the Olympics, enjoying the action and hearing all about people’s ‘journey to success’.  Each and everyone who took part had their own story to tell, had overcome obstables and persevered, had received support from others and made huge sacrifices to achieve their goal. To watch them fulfil their dreams was truly inspiring….only time will tell if we can fulfil ours, the next stop on our journey is Riccarton (tonight’s game is a 7.30pm kick off).
