The positives from the Chavski match
October 5, 2010
Yup, you read it correctly, I am bored of reading all the monotonous crap knocking us, so I am going to focus on the glowing positives from the 90 minutes played out at ramshackle of a ground.
Jack is ready, more than ready, to give world-class performances on a weekly basis, he is no longer a work in progress, the boy is a man nowadays.
There is no better player of his age, in his position anywhere in the Premier League… maybe Europe.
Pair him with Cesc in the middle of the park and we have ourselves the best of the best at what they do…. I’d have them in my team over Xavi and Iniesta all day long.
Chavski did NOT bully us, we stood our ground, and with Vermalen fit, we would have been even stronger at the back.
Clichy has been exposed, and when Gibbs is back fully fit, we have ourselves a new and vastly better left-back.
Diaby once again proved what a total beast he is when sharp, fit and hungry for it…. let him off the West Brom game as he was just not right, mentally or physically that afternoon.
Bottom line, we did not take our bloody clear chances, tough titty… that’s life, we move on, we fight on… we continue to support.
We have a team ladies and gentlemen… trust me we do, but just don’t expect them to win every game they play.
Especially away to the champions and one of the strongest team in world football right now.
We can and will only improve as the season progresses, but to go away and smash them off the park without our spine in TV5, Cesc, and RvP, tells me we have a pretty decent squad this term.
Just wait till we have our first eleven on the pitch.
