Moyes still believes !

He went on to say..

‘You have to say we went to Leverkusen and it got to the 83rd minute before they scored the first goal. It might take us that long before we can do it, but we have to have that patience and that level of trying to find a way of winning the game, or certainly getting a couple of goals in front at the end of 90 minutes,’ Moyes explained in his pre-match press conference.

‘We’ll try to do it, we’ll do everything we can, but we have to be mindful of how we do it and not be over-exposed. We did a job at Leverkusen for long periods, but obviously we couldn’t quite see it through.’

‘I think we should give them respect. We’ll do our best on Thursday night to not give them too much, but ultimately they deserve the respect because of the results.’

‘Normally, it’s towards the end of the season that the biggest games come,’ . ‘If you’re playing big games at the end of the season it means you’ve been relatively successful because you’ve got to play good teams [to keep progressing].’

‘When you’re getting words like quarter-finals, semi-finals, it’s exciting. Obviously the final is what you want to get to, and win it, but you have to go through the process to get there. It will be a difficult, difficult game, but one we’ve got belief that we can find a way to try and make it.’

    Moyes talk the talk but it’s all hot air he believes we can win tonight and I hope he is right he says that we will overturn the 2-0 defeat in Germany I’d like to know how maybe it could happen and I will be over the moon should it happen but given his defensive tactics if he decides to go down that road tonight then I fear it will be a case of how many goals leverkusen will score we need to get at them from the word go to unsettle them and keep them under pressure then we may just do it which would be a amazing result should we end up winning the Europa League cup and qualify for champions league next season then there is no way moyes will leave or be sacked I just wonder which is the worst of the 2evils

    Oh dear. Let’s hope we do manage to catch them on the break and that Mo, Michail and, hopefully, Jarrod can get two or three goals between them. Who Dares Wins!
