Well, it wasn't so bad after all

Comments (7)

At least, we saw diligence and some grit from the Blues. Had we played like this in last five games, Liverpool would be much more worried about next week's encounter with Chelsea.

This game proved me wrong on some points. First, we don't need Mickey to create if we just have a will for a goal (win, maybe). That being said, I still think that he is our best player (brain) and that he should be kept at any cost. Second, we should try our luck on Fernandes if the price isn't too high. He's a poor man Lee Carsley (spine) but he has something that old fella hasn't and if he isn't a head case, he could be a last man in a powerfull midfield we may have in future. Third, eh... but yes, we need to give Moysey a new chance. After all, we are contenders now. If this man had guts enough to get us out of the relegation league, he just might've learned enough to push us forward.

Things we all know: we need fresh bodies (one point for Moysey - he is able to get us some); we need to steal some fitness trainers from Sky teams (if we are to fight with same eleven through 90 mins and more, we need to have them ready for additional 90 mins (look at Liverpool and you'll see what I mean), we need to keep Osman and Cahill (heart and soul) happy here even if we bring people here that could seriously challenge them... And so on and so forth.

Here we are, three games to go. Nothing to gain, wonderful season to lose. I am positive that we'll end it in high note (even if this mean three draws - but three draws enough). Just for the sake at looking back one day and say "Yeah, this was a tough one, but we knew we'll be champions even then".

Once again the opponent's half of the pitch was a foreign country to Moyes and his team. Up to the half way line is fine then we run out of ideas. There was nothing wrong with our defensive work.

If only one thing came out of tonight's game it is that our yet to be named assistant coach must have attacking flair and not definitely NOT another ex defender!

What’s the story, folks? Fact is that we played some game - first one after Fiorentina. Another fact is that it really ain’t so bad even if we lost. Let’s admit it - we are 17 points befind Chelsea and much more points in class, etc. We’re you guys happier after we ’crushed’ Derby? Sorry, I was happy too, only dissapointed. My only point was that I was not dissapointed this time. COYB

You think the Blues played well - are you on another planet? What happened to the service to our strikers? How many shots on goal from us? Wake up and smell the coffee!!

I get so annoyed reading a post like this. We were crap, brutal, hopeless last night. Talk about headless chickens... I cannot understand premier players being on the pitch that cannot pass accurately - even backwards.

I am so disappointed about where this season is going. We are miles away from the big 4 and the whinging about us missing a few players only shows up our overall poor quality.

Unfortunately money talks in this league and we either need to spend big or resign ourselves to fruitless seasons like this where we run out of steam / ideas due to lack of resources.
