Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (feat. Joel - THE RIGHT ONE)
Saw a replay of Saints/Chelsea. Deserved the point I thought. Find it funny though that Chelsea fans are blaming Rafa for that. His team selection was i imagine the best team they could have selected. Unlike QPR we aren't the type to park the bus so it should have been a reasonable comfortable job for Chelsea to pick us off.
Probably a good thing I didn't wake up though as I probably would have gone back to bed at half time seeing as were 2 down and Lambert and Ramirez were on the bench. I actually thought it was Nigel being sly and intentionally leaving them out so that when we have the return game at St Marys we wouldn't be devoid of confidence knowing our best team was shellacked.
Cant see us going down now unless an injury crisis hits. Our best 11-13 are more than good enough to keep us up. Luke Shaw is better than Bale was at 17. At least he is defensively, Bale may have had him going forward. Wonder if Luke is being looked at as a left back in the future or a left mid. I mean with Cole in the latter stages of his career I imagine Shaw would be the logical replacement as the England left back. And Clyne is probably the man for right back. I love the young guys at the club.
