    For me, he was exceptional. Key in the first goal, great hold up play, turn and defence splitting pass.

    Second, a very obvious contribution.

    Overall he gave them no breathing space and battle all game to really physical players. He was fast, sharp, physical and aggressive.

    Taking it one game at a time
    Sounds about right.

    Four too many of course.

    I was not aware of many misplaced passes last night: what did impress me again was our game management. Yet again we not only dominated possession but restricted Stoke to playing in areas which were no threat at all with the result that they had 2 shots all night, neither of which was on target. Crouch did pose a threat in the air but, with the exception of one corner, we kept him too far from goal for him to cause much of a problem. Their pacey players never got a look in.

    When I first heard that chant (can’t remember when it was exactly) the words were “eye gouging ****” but then “Portuguese ****” caught on.

    I preferred the original
