I watched those goals again and again yesterday. Both ours were fanfuckingtastic. Mo wow, just fkn wow!!!
But watching their goals, Fab and Curtis run into each other and that left Silva to play that pass to the Rat Roeden with James no where near him? FFS!!! How do 2 players not take that ball off Silva?
As for the second, convinced Ali would have saved that. Have no idea why Joel turned his body that way, deflecting it in? Thought to myself, would it not have been more natural in that situation, to be turning the other way, thus deflecting it wide?
2 goals they should never have got!
Agree Ali would have had it if
Joel hadn't touched it. It's easy to look at slow motion and think Joel should have left it. These things don't happen in slow motion and if
it's an inch different and Joel heads it clear, we think, "what solid, brave defending from Matip."
Short of it is there were a lot of ifs
in this match and in the end, it was pretty spectacular theatre. We're going to be in the thick of a title race for the rest of the season. A lot of twists and turns to come so strap in and keep your nitro and antacid tablets (or reefer for you Oz) within reach.
Oh and since we're so obsessed with following this wonderful club, we may as well try TO ENJOY IT
on some level along the way. Just a thought.
