Smiling last

Last night was another nightmare in terms of injuries (footy matches played on ploughed fields usually are) but it was absolutely brilliant in terms of character. A one nil win away from home in those circumstance with players dropping like flies can’t be under-estimated.


Great performances from Fellaini, Jo, Cahill, Hibbert as well as kids like Duffy, Coleman & Baxter coming in and playing hearts out. Superb stuff....great to be through the group stage with a game to spare. The Benfica games were pretty disappointing but you’ve just got to hold your hands up and acknowledge that they are a top side.



So the derby ended in a two nil defeat for the blues. Not being churlish but that is the worst Liverpool side I’ve ever seen. So many of their players are just utterly, utterly average. Everton, I thought, played really well but had no luck whatsoever. Pienaar coming back could be key to us if we are to avoid a relegation battle, it was also great to see Cahill pushed further forward. Onwards and hopefully upwards
