Let the moaning stop….for now at least!

No Winston Reid…no Sam Byram, no Manu Lanzini, no Michail Antonio,no Pedro Obiang…no Andy Carroll!

Result A 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, a result  that nobody other than the most supreme optimist would have called – a few will want to argue with that of course.

Given fine big absences ( some may wanna consider the AC factor in there) yesterday’s result was something of a minim miracle.

How great it is to to wake up feeling good about life after another successful weekend and I wanna get used to this because probably, like most, I’ve heard enough moaning to this season to last me several lifetimes.

Yeah, yeah, yeah I know all the arguments – the board, the recruitment policy, regular injury crises, managerial question marks etc but the last couple of games have put things back in perspective.

All of that stuff can wait for the summer – four points from the last six, one against poor opposition and one against decent, is enough for now.

There’s much to put right in the summer and I believe it will be put right – or at least some of it – and I believe that under David Moyes the board will be told: ‘No messing or I walk.’

For now let’s just be very grateful the lads are firing under the man chosen to keep us in the division and enjoy the glow of another second Monday morning on the trot.

  1. Yes a nice boring end to the season would be nice. Too much to hope for? Probably. Ladbrokes have us 16-1 against relegation. One more win & we probably move into 50-1 territory.

  2. Here here!

  3. Beat Stoke next week then let the board have it both barrells til the end of the season for me

  4. I will stop moaning about the moaners, haws that 🙂 I really hope we can find a win against Stoke, next season if we stay up not sure what others think ? I think though we should really consider Voldemort in central midfield, he is at our level and I am fairly certain he would love to play for us, although I would like us to sign Wilshere I can’t honestly see him coming now that Arsenal are starting to look a lot better going forward can anyone else ? The other thing is if Stoke go down, what about Shaquiri ? Likewise at Southampton Ward-Prowse, Austin, Tadic, Fraser Forster, Bertrand etc, if they go down it will be a fire sale similar to when we went down with a team to good to go down.

  5. Hear hear.

  6. i think we play better without Lanzini. When he was banned, Arnie and Hernandez clicked.

  7. I am not a great Lanzini fan either. At least not the Lanzini we have seen this season- injury prone & often leaving no real mark on the game. The suggestion that Real Madrid (or was it Barca) wanted him was hilarious but if they or somebody lower down the food chain was willing to pay us a good sum for him I would say yes.

  8. If and when Stoke go down and we will get a good view of this on Monday . Shaquiri should defiantly be an option,playing with Arnie again I’m sure he would love. Badou Ndiaye could be an option and a replacement for Kouyate
