Thanks for treating us with respect, been a pleasure. Good luck in the cup

You would have given any of the PL teams a tough time today. Your defence was solid and the 4 in front of them had a great shape, which stopped us playing through the gaps. Your work rate was superb and you all worked for each other.
Best wishes for the rest of the season and hope you get promoted. You played far above the level we expected.

Thought the " go down with cramp at 80 minutes, the rest of you guys get a good drink in you" failed badly for them.
He's a young lad on loan and getting his first taste of pro football. He's played non stop since the season began and showed signs lately of fatigue. He was subbed which wasn't planned due our injuries. Three first teamers out hence we actually named two keepers on the bench. We're down to the bare bones but no money to replace them.

We had real issues with fitness and team selection there.

Absolutely no way you can assess players when we had a new system with a bunch of players who have barely seen the pitch recently. Mendy, Jesus, Mahrez and Laporte all need minutes and rust was obvious. Fitting the kids into the mix was risky and the whole thing was a recipe for diasaster but thankfully Gundogan, Cancelo and Dias could re-assert our shape in time.

That’s a character building win, we could look back fondly on it much like the Swansea 3-2 a few years back.

and Foden.... we now have to call Iniesta the Spanish Foden.

Have you requested to have Foden on loan?? The press have been sanctioning it for the last 2 years :-)
