We like Anders Lindegaard quite a lot. He made a great figure when playing in Tippeligaen over here and seemed a nice guy with his head screwed on tight. He´s also quite a funny guy on Twitter. It´s nice to have a fellow Scadi at Deepdale. Not since our very own Joshua King became the 1000th player to put on the white we`ve had a viking on board.
But what does the Preston loyals think of the guy so far? We turn to twitter…
“Decent shotstopper but a bit like Dracula when it comes to crosses.”
“Would like to sign him mainly for his passion!”
“Needs to learn come off his line at corners etc but is clearly a quality keeper at this level.”
“Good to see his wife on the Invincibles today.”
“Almost as good as the new (The Branch) logo.”
“Outstanding stop to keep us in it today. Good distribution, reads the game well and great passion too!”
“That save yesterday from Henry when he was 1 on 1 was world class, top keeper and we need to buy him IMO.”
Preston North End Football Club is once again a Championship side. Beating Swindon Town 4-0 at Wembley Sunday night was the last pice of the 2014/2015 puzzle. And we were there cha. Go to Tours to get an idea of our experience. Althogh words and pictures never will be able to fully describe the “best awayday ever”.
Over two games the Lancashire lads proved to be the stronger side. Preston was 1-0 up after a Beckford lob on thursday at the Protac Stadium. It was a heated affair where at least one or two players could count themselves luckey to be allowed to finish the game. It´s clear once again that things that could get you jail time outside the stadium may not even be a yellow card offence on the pitch.
At home Beckford followed up with a great lay back volley to make it 2-0. The third Preston playoff goal was a penalty from the league´s top scorer Joey Garner. The last goal was an incredible strike from the half way line – once again by Beckford. Chesterfield put up a decent fight. No shame in losing to the mighty Whites. After their climb to the 3rd tire last season reaching the playoffs have to be concidered a success. For our lot only a W next game calls for the same description. So lads, keep them boots on and stay focused.
Now there´s only one thing in life that´s important – getting tickets to the final.
Wembely Wembely – We´re the mighty Preston North End and we´re going to Wembely!!
So it all played out the way Preston fans predicted – we failed when we couldn´t afford to. The MK train wallsed over the already relegated Yeovil and Colchester refused to go down with them. The anti climax after holding on to the second place for so long. There´s is a lot of cool football nicknames out there. I don´t concider “The Bottlers” to be one of them. We´ll forever be the team that got “the club that never should have been” back in the second tire.
But crying like a spoiled child won´t take us anywhere, we´re in the play offs now and I have a feeling the lads want to put a couple of things straight. So come on you mighty Whites and make the push for Wembley and more important for the Championship.
With Joey Garner´s hat-trick today we´re 18 games unbeaten and one win away from a promotion party. MK Dons trailing by one point will meet an already relegated side next weekend so the preasure is on us. If Col.U win their mid week game in hand against the side we trashed today they will have everything to play for at home against us. In other words the stakes are high and it´s as always nerve wrecking to be a Preston North End fan. It´s now so close we can taste it. Let´s top 19 unbeaten off with a win lads!
