Think a few on here we’re expecting us to roll over City and magically give a performance of a CL final, that’s naivety at its worst and just plain silly at best, we were up against it before teams were announced, and if your honest wouldn’t expect to get thru, and we didn’t, not too upset at that but at the same time miffed we couldn’t defend it, you can’t expect us to be free flowing and on it after virtually 5 weeks of inactivity, basically it was a pumped up pre season dick swinging contest with bite,
City got off the blocks quicker and caught us with our pants down within a matter of seconds, and there’s your starter for ten, it took us ten minutes for us to shake off the Dubai sand and inevitable rust, and then we lose that goal with Gomez half asleep on the six yard line, funny how conceding seemed to spark some life into us, we started to ping the ball around and create a couple of openings, more on Darwin later,
Thought Carv took his goal with a air of nonchalance, no panic, no fear, just composed, for such a young lad, that’s impressive, contrast that with Darwin, look, let’s get one thing absolutely and abundantly clear here, he is a f***in beast this fella, ATM tho it’s just not happening, but, it will, we can all see it will, some say he’s trying too hard, some will say he’s sh*te and doppleganging Andy Carrol, but truth is Andy Carrol couldn’t tie his boot laces,
Remember, he’s just a young lad too, like Carv, like Harv, like Baj, like Morton, like Ramsey, like Doak, some flowers take longer to bloom than other’s, but the good thing about Darwin is, he’s getting into the right positions, he’s making the right runs, he creates spaces and chances for Mo & others, he just needs to fine tune, add perhaps a bit more composure, he’ll come good, and when he does he’ll be virtually unplayable,
For a pre-season dick swinger it was pretty damn good though, don’t you think, I mean F**k sake, I seen a line saying it was as good as the WC final itself, and that isn’t too far off, the quality on show was incredible, and if you can’t admire the quality of KDB ( that cross for Ake) ffs, then your watching the wrong sport, he had a few worldly moments last night and when you have a player of his calibre, his skill level, his intelligence you virtually start 1 nil up, and there’s practically F**k all you can do about it unless you hoof him up in the air every chance you get,
We had our moments too, and at least for the last 15 first half minutes we were dominant, and that was encouraging to see, without Trent, Virgil, without Fab 1st half, without Diaz, Jota, Bobby, Hendo too for 65 mins, signs were there, to produce a performance like that was uplifting, all we can do is to hope we continue to be better than the start of season, and once we get one or two more off that physio’s bench I can see us romping up a few places in the league, I still believe we’ll finish bridesmaids again, and never, never never ever rule us out of No 7 either !!
Merry crimbo & a Happy New Year Fuckers !!!!
