Antonio says sorry to fans

Michail AntonioMichael Antonio is sick and took no enjoyment from his goals against Watford.
The ultimate team man made his feelings clear to the official site saying: ”I’d rather not score and win the game than score two goals and lose it.
“We came out raring to go and started well, but after we got two-up I think we took our foot off it, and now it’s pure frustration.
“We had other opportunities to kill the game, but we didn’t manage to do that and defensively we made a couple of mistakes.

“All we can do is say sorry to the fans for that and move on to the next game.”

He continued: “I’m hoping to score with my feet now! The service keeps coming and if it goes there I’m going to score goals. It came today and hopefully I can keep scoring, but it is more important for us to win games.

“In the first half an hour we showed the threat we have, but we’ve got to do that for 90 minutes. We can’t afford to make the mistakes we did, because in the Premier League you will get punished.

“We’ve got to keep going and keep working hard in training.”

  1. Well said, you hit the nail on the head Michail, we do need to play for 90 minutes not 35.

  2. Best player on the pitch comes out and says that… A few more need to follow his commitment & passion on the pitch!

    That being said, new players in the side, a ground that feels “away” it’s all gonna take time! #coyi

  3. IMO, this is one player who has absolutely nothing to apologise for. But to say ‘all we can say is sorry’ doesn’t cut it for me, how about saying those who know they don’t deserve their wages this week will donate it charity?

  4. The curiosity of finishing seventh?

    Back in season 2001/2 we finished 7th, headed into the following season on a high, big optimism and hope, subsequently we then had a shocking recruiting campaign instead of pushing on, remember it was the very first transfer window per se?
    Our board chairman (TB) didn’t understand how to help the manager effectively enough to have a well balanced squad, end result, relegated!

    So fast forward to now, it finally felt after the previous two transfer windows that we’ve fully recovered after 12 long painful years of hurt. But this past transfer window and preseason has been turbulent to put it mildly. The current squad is not as good as last season in terms of experience, game intelligence and quality.
    If you go through man for man of those who have been released, jettisoned or sold, the incumbents are on recent showings not as good. The squad is imbalanced and if we get long term injuries to our two first choice strikers we could be in a perilous situation similar to 12 years ago, oh wait, both of our first choice strikers are out!
    So just where did we finish last season then? Hmmmm ( scratches head quizzically).

  5. We need a defence first!
