We were beaten but for me it was the game of our season!
In fairness there haven’t been many have there? The win at Vicarage Road back in August, the exhilarating victory over Norwich when it should have been five rather than two in their net.
Then there was the 2-0 win over Man United, a fine victory at Stamford Bridge and a double over Southampton when we started to show a bit of class probably helped by the fact that Antonio and Haller demonstrated they could scare the living daylights out of defences.
It made you wonder whether had Pellegrini not been so pig headed previously in not using them together, which had seen us win the first game at St Mary’s, whether he might have hung onto his job.
But for me it was that night at Anfield which was the stand out 90 minutes of the Irons season when they showed the sorts of guts and skill which gave us real hope ahead of the unpleasant pause in action from which we are all suffering t so many levels.
Remember that game in the video above and let us know which was your best game of the season.
