i was going to try and write a longish post about how good we were tonight in the old style 1-11 format. trouble is i've been drinking a bit and my memory isn't what it should be...
the peacock - he did something good, very little wrong and it was espionage agent carson who was the dodgy keeper tonight. there was that bit early in the second half which was peak peacock when he was near the benches to clear a pass, the most proactive keeper on our books. also respects for the sly studs up in that challenge.
ayling - still a decent player, but may not be good enough to stopthe surge of the shack by next season.
pontus - he's going to have to be doing some extra running in training after his show boating, but he earnt that right to show off with a wonderfully aggressive performance. first to the ball? pontus everytime.
coops - he's really good isn't he?
alioski - duracell bunny. can you dislike this man? if you can you need to talk. epic efforts.
forshaw - as said above and before i like forshaw and was pleased to see him back to being himself after a couple of dodgy performances. he really is a very effective player.
klich - still not 100%
clarke - no need to say much, but he's why people love football. there's something of the feline hunting it's prey when he has the ball. and the beautiful thing is he doesn't then waste it, his delivery is thoughtful.
harrison - i'm warming to him more and more, he's a worker with a decent bit of skill, a bit of a stuart dallas. you know he isn't going to let you down.
pablo - he's pablo, he's a treasure. no need to describe him, just watching him makes you feel good. always inventive, always a step ahead, rarely wasteful, normally positive.
roofey - our gary lineker. that was a top finish. works his backside off.
these are the good times, the beauty is a lot of us older fuckers realise this and appreciate it. i never thought i'd see a season like 89/90, but in many ways this is better.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.
