fairly uneventful game
through to the next round
1-1. Another unspectacular game, but I don't mind that. As long as we get through from this round, which I think we should be able to after the first two wins... This competition is a farce now, the format is total shite.
Why can't we defend the most basic attack?! Pissing hell...
Vigo 1, thank you very much :-p
can kiss my arse and fucking thank me for it. (Sorry, I'm a little annoyed by our performance tonight.)
You big baldy French slacker!!
one all :D
did Albert Luque cost us so much money?! JEsus Christ...
A good fighting performance in the end after an inept start. Channel 5 were embarassing though... So many basic factual errors, like Andreas Andersson going to Milan after Newcastle? Er, no he came from there, and got a transfer to the Frog and Firkin's Seconds after Newcastle. And Steven Taylor from London? Where the fuck did they get that idea?!!!
and he IS!
I stand by the Andreas Andersson thing though...
was born in Haltwhistle. True fact.
Twas a good second-half performance. Luque's corner for Taylor's winner was awesome. He didn't convince me much apart from that. But we're through to the last 32.
Uefa should scrap the group stage, and make it a complete knock-out competition like it used to be. Next's week game is utterly pointless apart from filling Freddie's pockets.
what an amzing atmosphere there was there tonight!
Dyer, Martins, Parker, Emre, and N'Zogbia on form would be a treat to watch. But our lack of a defense is always worrying, we had to play Solano at right-back tonight.
In a related topic, Wayne Bridge just signed a new Chelsea contract....fuck.
I'd rather he played there than Carr to be honest. We need to buy full-backs! Carr and Babayaro constantly leave the centre-halfs exposed, putting them under pressure, and we all know what pressure does to Bramble and co.
Oh, and we need a centre-half or two, Bramble's contract is up in June.
We need 3 or 4 defenders really. That HAS to be the priority in January. I think Steve Carr's actually one of the worst things about our defence, he looks completely past it. Steven Taylor's had a couple of good games at right-back, I'd rather see him there to be honest. I've also got a horrible feeling that they're going to flog James Milner, which would be a very big mistake. Behind Scott Parker, he's been our best outfield player this season.
but i'll take a place in the next round
who knows, maybe we can grind our way all the way to the trophy!
We couldn't take the heat when everyone expected us to win it. I wonder if we can do it when everyone writes us off. Nah, didn't think so...
REPLACE HIM WITH GRAHAM POLL NOW
to play a full domestic and european season. If we won the cup we would get relegated. And if we finish in the top 10, we will have gone out by the quarters.
how do we win every cup game?!
