Jesus that was hard work. Felt like another Sunday going tits up with Dele crumpled in the Advertising hordings, then boom! Can’t pretend it was vintage but then we’re coping with a lot of injuries and general shit this year.
Froze my fucking arse off but there were about 5,000 of us always worth it in the end. Check Sir Poch on Twitter, last minute winner. Sometimes we’re a bit crap, and some of our ‘fans’ moan like fuck, but isn’t it worth it all in the end when you win. Keep the faith, lads keep the faith. Win when you’re not playing well.
To be fair we've got players out of form, like Trippier, injuries and and absentees all over the place, make shift teams working out what each other is going to do and we're still third in the league. I know what you mean but jesus we're still getting through with a lot of shit going on. Moura back for dele on Thursday night, and Dier back as well. Somehow it's working, one in one out, Sonny back on Feb 2nd.
It's bollocks this season but Poch seems to have them all in a positive siege mentality. Keep going lads.
That's a horrible stat... one we need to work on. I'm getting so nervous now. I know we're still doing absolutely fantastic, but it doesn't seem to be coming naturally at the minute. We've had spells this season where we've played some super footy, but now it seems like a fucking real fight. Maybe it's the old spurs in me telling me not to hope for anything because we will spursy it up in the end.
The only game i’m really concerned about, is the one coming up against those horrible knob jockeys. Think it’ll be a painful watch, much like the 1st leg, although given all the possession they had, they did very little with it.
We get thru that game, then we have some favourable pl fixtures coming up and then as @Don Diaz said Sonny’s back in a few weeks along with Sissoko and I wouldn’t be too surprised to see Harry back sooner than expected. Keep the faith mate!
A lot of people are saying we were shit, but I thought we actually played quite well, especially in the second half. Lots of quick passing, movement and fluidity in the attacking third, etc. Fulham are a very poor defensive team to be fair, but if we were a little more clinical it could've been much different. Llorente will get better with game time, and I for one hope GKN gets a chance and seizes it, he has more pace than anyone in the squad.
That said, by far my biggest worry coming out of that game is Dele's injury, and obviously we can't afford any more, even to squad players.
Sorry another video,better sound but club commentary far to subdued. Its just as Nkoudou flights the ball in who from Fulham yells "keeper" ? Great football,fast passing this is a much under rated goal IMO.
