Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens
Players played fantastically today. First ten minutes may have been iffy but it's such a big improvement on some of the other performances this year, like against city at the etihad. Thought Colback dealt with a much better Yaya as well as he could considering he's not actually decent at football and just works hard. McClean and Rose were great, Rose getting a standing ovation from more or less the entire stadium when he was taken off was a nice moment too. Gonna be a huge miss vs Spurs. McClean made some great tackles for a winger and looked more like the player he was last year. Plus Mignolet was reliable as ever. Really can't fault any of the players though, seems like City at home over the festive period is a gift that keeps on giving for us. Table looks mighty fine now compared to the start of the month.
I'll agree that city didn't really know what to do though, they kept trying to pass it too much almost near the box and Yaya seemed the only one willing to take on a shot. Seemed susceptable on the break too, had Sessegnon(x2)/Campbell/McClean/Fletcher actually taken some of the chances that fell to them it could've been more comfortable. 1-0 does me fine though, since I had a few mates with bets on it
