ClaretandHugh Facebook member Eamonn Driscoll delivered a wonderfully positive and uplifting message to the gloom and doom merchants this evening.
We were so impressed with the optimism and hope that we felt it deserved a much wider audience and unhesitatingly bring it to you all here.
When I stop and think about it Lanzini, Payet, Moses, (and of course Bilic) are all new this season and have been instant hits.
The fact we are going to miss these players so much shows what great signings/loans they have been. I think Antonio is going to be another hit (he is also the future – not a loanee).
Zarate is a revelation under Bilic and Carroll needs a run of games and our support; we all raved about him when he finished his loan from Liverpool.
The reason we don’t have money to spend is because we have a bigger quality squad now, albeit with more injuries than you’d expect.
So far this season we’ve seen a much more entertaining style emerging and some amazing results. We should be pleased with the direction and points we’ve accumulated.
Yes, we have seen some baffling displays as well, but I agree with those that have said there’s not been enough protection in front of the back four.
We were overrun in midfield against Watford. Song looked great against Man Utd, let’s hope it’s the same against better attacks.
So yes, perhaps it’s going to be a tough few weeks while this new combo work each other out but the future still looks very bright.
