Good evening Positive fans,
I watched the best performance of the season we put together over 90 minutes. Very few clubs put together such a thorough defensive performance at the Bridge and our game without the ball was excellent today. Mustafi did not put a foot wrong all day and left Morata a petulant heap, Kosc was tidy and rarely under pressure and Nacho cleaned up whatever crumbs his partners dropped. A well deserved and hard earned point – more satisfying because the scarfists and the ‘experts’ had marked us down for a Good thrashing – idiots one and all.
Looking slightly forward and across Hector’s return to his position as the best young full back/ wing back in the PL takes another step. It was at this ground his progress was derailed. And the Bosnian eh ? First name on the team sheet at the moment.
Congratulation to Alan Smith for the most inane comment I have ever heard, to the effect that he hoped “someone had had a word” with Aaron and Xhaka After the Anfield game because if no one had “it’s criminal”.
No Alan the players and the coaches and the manager sat round in total silence for 3 weeks. Very energetic from both, controlled the midfield after the first 20 minutes.
Up front two first half chances, Danny’s header and Laca’s rebound, both difficult but on another day …..?
For a manager who I think is very good at his job Conte allows his players to plead insanity for too often. Luis is a f******* liability.
No complaints with Oliver – always a tricky game to control and at times the home side tested his good nature.
Overall a point was a fair result.
