It doesn’t seem as though Simon Davies, who has come in for some unfair slating on the messageboards today, is particularly worried by the Ides of March.
Instead Fulham’s returning midfielder is excited by the prospect of playing Juventus (twice), Manchester United and Manchester City in quick succession both our sixth fixture in 15 days – the FA Cup replay at White Hart Lane.
If someone had offered us that run two years ago, we’d have been jumping at it. Juventus, Manchester United, Manchester City and a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals – it’s great times and it’s going to be a time when I’m sure there won’t be too much training done.
It will just be game after game and, hopefully, we can keep our run going. We had a great run in February even though it was a tough month – and it will be another tough month in March.
But there’s a lot of experience in the squad and the manager has a lot of experience, so I’m sure he will negotiate the month wisely. Not too many of us have been this far in the Cup or Europe so it’s learning to deal with the big occasion and trying to make the most of it.
