    Let's remind ourselves that it wasn't a knockout match and that we played a very good team in a group game. In two weeks we'll play them in another group game in Naples and Pep and the lads will have to approach that accordingly. We would have played the last 65 mins very differently and made (different?) substitutions at different times had it been a knock out match - or had KdB's shot hit the bar and gone in or Jesus's shot not been blocked on the line. We don't want to start playing two different games at once.

    To be fair, he did come out this weekend and admit he was very wrong on that and he'd definitely pay to watch him now.

    if that was a knockout game ,we won 2-1 why would we need to score twice ? any draw would put us through even a 0-0

    Only because Savage has been shown to be the utter fuckwit he is by his original comments.

    Still admitted he was wrong. A Danny Mills/Chris Sutton type would've stuck to their guns.

    Great win indeed. It was a tough test and we came through. John stones is becoming a top top defender. Love the way he is leading the defense. So much assurity about everything he does. And saving that shot on open goal was world class

    We should've charge the fucker, the price of a matchday ticket. Hospitality, at that.

    A lot of neutrals would say from that point on they threatened to score time and again. Whilst it wasn't a one sided affair I thought the number of chances they had was more than ours but like I stated in my earlier post, because they were behind and needed to equalise, anybody that started watching from that point would think they were doing better.

    Just watching the replay, that second goal is a thing of beauty, started from the keeper, a great number of passes, one poor clearance from them, then that pass, and a simple finish.

    Not quite as good as the opener at WBA, but given the opposition, wonderful stuff.

    The shot by KdB that hits the bar, equally good football, Walker wins the ball then a great pass, great movement, and passing, piss poor shot [​IMG]
