I made a comment in the "my line-up" thread. Past that, not much else to say. We did the job and I hope this season we take that "go get 'em" when we're playing in the rainy NW or cold NE in the ugly end of the season against some team we deem beneath us.
Let's face it, you go 1-0 up in 5 minutes in a game where away goals count double, you've already invited the opposition to come at you...this gave Krancjar acres of space and bags of time to do what he does best...carve defenses up. There was a lot of slick one touch play by us, but again, they really didn't have a clue how to set up and make us think about making those kinds of moves.
I don't think we're that negative, it was what it was, us (men) taking advantage of them (boys) that way it should be (and that I can definitely take as a positive as there's been many times when we should have, but didn't.
5 minutes of the kind of pressure Hearts put us under in the 2nd half, on Monday and its a whole different ball game. Then there'll be Rooney's and Berbatov's and even Owen's in the box and I doubt that they'll be so forgiving. Niko wont have the space he enjoyed Thursday, maybe Modric will play his last game for us there (as Nasri probably played for the Goons today...oh dear, what a game). Anyway, without the preferred CB partnership starting for Manure, we have a inkling of a chance (as long as 'arry doesn't have the team sit back and invite them on looking to counter...hasn't worked in the past and probably wont work on Monday!
