Well the big fella nailed that nonsense once and for all today and I hope you won’t mind me saying I’ve always said he was good on the deck.
That was one blinding goal and the celebration which followed was brilliant. he’d been getting a lot of stick from the Swansea fans and had a great time putting it up to ’em.
We played some really good football at times today and had we come away with a point this time last year we would have been doing some big time celebrating.
But we let ourselves down a bit in the second half and started to defend what we had. It’s as much to do with the players as the manager. When you haven’t won for a while there’s a collective psyche kicks in but it’s the wrong way to go.
We started defending deeper and deeper and you just knew what was going to happen. It was a real shame to see it happen because the further we went into our shell the harder it was always going to be to come out.
The goal was really unfortunate for Mark Noble but there was nothing he could do and to be fair we responded really well, creating a lot of chances towards the end.
The fact is though that we’ve now gone five without a win and we need to get that one on the board either against Everton on Tuesday, Hull on Saturday or both of course.
After that it’s Liverpool at their place and Man United at the Boleyn. These are free hits and both teams are beatable. They are definitely not what they once were.
Every team will have its little disappointing run but once we have sorted Everton, Hull or both we’ll be back on our way again. No problem.
Come on you Irons.
