We discussed before the game the possibility that we’d lowered our expectations to such a point that we couldn’t fail to be impressed by every tackle, would revel in every successfully won corner kick. So it proved… this was vibrant, positive, imaginative stuff. Kinda punchless, but so much much better than feared.
Maybe I went with very low expectations but we were fantastic. All the fight, passion and desire that had been lacking in pre-season and, I guess, in the last 9 or so miserable months was back and flowing through the whole team.
