Slav: “They should be happy it was just one!”

Bilic 600x400Slav talking to the BBC

“We expected this atmosphere tonight, it is the game of the season for us. It is maybe our best performance, from the first minute we were on the front foot and dominant, tactically, technically and physically.

“Spurs concede the least goals and run the most so to out-play them is big and they should be happy it was just one goal they conceded.

“We changed the tactics with five at the back so we had wing backs chasing their runners and the system helped but how you play is more important. Our determination and togetherness was more important.

“We are not thinking about the top four. The gap might be small for those places but there is also a small gap between us and ninth place. We are going to continue to play like this and try to win every game.”

  1. “Lucky it was just one”. Well said Super Slav.

  2. “Happy it was just one” I mean. Ha ha ha. Same difference.

  3. Slav got it tactically spot on tonight.Even the substitutions were bang on.Saw many saying that Carroll starting was a no brainer instead of Emenike but that guy put in a great shift tonight.He was a real handful for the Spuds defence.In Slav we trust.Difficult to question him 99.99% of the time,lol

  4. As an aside why is it the Wetpants take anything the MOTD pundits say so badly.Shearer & Murphy praise us big time,saying we were brilliant but just because they say the Spuds missed injured players the Wetties go into one.Spuds did miss Dembele & Alli starting.It’s a fact,what’s to get so wound up about,ha ha lol

  5. Simple to answer.They have a fixation with pundits,referees & opposition players who are going to kill Payet.Same every week.A certain player is bound to take Dimi out,the ref each week is the worse in the league & every pundit is against us.Lmao.Honestly Daz it is the same every week.

    • Seriously…….the best night for years.
      Beating the Spuds
      Loads of talking points

      Yet you can only talk about the other site………you need therapy

  6. Slav cracks it again,wonder what his plan is for Saturday,we need to keep that gap between us and 7th,and coming away with any points will be very hard,but if we are going to Manchester and staying in the cup we need to keep our record going,
    Antonio could make right back his in the England team,looks better then most natural right backs but still attacks like a winger,
    Surprised Wetpants arnt still in the Queens playing with Rad,
