Obiang explains a moment of near magic

obiang1Pedro Obiang reckons the time is approaching when the Irons will become upwardly mobile!

The midfielder almost settled the game with a magical shot from just outside the centre circle which beat Ben Foster but bounced off the bar.

And afterwards he declared: “We’ve come through a difficult moment and we won the last game. We needed another point to start to move up to the middle of the table.

“Maybe this result is enough for us. We are a big team and we needed that point. We can take one point.”

“For the defenders, for us, and for the team, it’s really nice to keep another clean-sheet. We’ve played difficult games where we’ve conceded many goals but we’re starting to play better, and play together.

“We just need to score more goals now.”


Obiang explained hie today came from the confidence he’s gained from Monday evening’s goal against Huddersfield Town.

He explained: “I have friends who told me that when you score you have a higher capacity to score in the next game. So I said I would do it, but it didn’t happen. Maybe next time!”

  1. Was an amazing shot would have been a goal of the season contender had it gone in.

    • Yes it would and by far most exciting part of the match, you could see he was more confident shooting today & he should keep taking his chances.

      • Agreed mate, a few more players should create a bit of space and shoot sometime they go in sometimes they create chances from rebounds / deflections we don’t have the players that produce the killer pass at the minute, shame we didn’t keep Feghouli at least he held up the ball and released a few passes, easily better than Ayew in that regard.

        • Yes I was a Feghouli fan and he won Burnley game for us o help us fisnih 11th. AMD esp w our depth would love him to still be here.
          But yes we need a creative player CM more than a DM if ask me even w Lanzini fit bc he does better with other creative players then alone only 2 assist last season
