Win 2-0. I am optimistic and think we will put it all on the line and get the 3 points. No point in thinking anything less.

I have said this numerous times, Rooney is done. Everything changed when he went off.

All credit to the players and Unsworth especially. He fired up the players, and made some great changes.

Although there is still massive amounts of work to do defensively, at least we scored some goals!!

No, we scored when he was on; from a set piece and a pen.

Plus the two best open play chances came when he was on too.

Regardless of what the situation in the match was, or the goals scored, the team looked a completely different beast. More energy, better on the ball, enthusiastic, even better defensively.

During the match, even if he creates one good moment, he gives the ball away far too much, looks lethargic and sloppy and just not the player that we thought we were getting.

The momentum changed because we got a goal from poor defending from them.

We won because they missed a pen.

Aside from Niasse’s effort right at the end we had no other open play chances and that was with all the momentum going our way.

Yes, but the changes helped carry the momentum that was earned with the goal.

Just as an aside, Rooney went off just after Niasse made it 2-1.

I am not going to attribute these quotes to anyone (you know who you are!!), but I thought it might be amusing to see the change from 2-0 to the end....

"I never want to watch us play football again."

"Game over. We are going down. Worst team in the league."

to

"We won :) three points, what is this feeling I have now...is it.. happiness?"

"Atleast now the new manager can come in on the back of a morale boosting win."

"Yessssssss!!! What a fucking game"

Good stuff

My wife told me off for screaming the house down when they missed the pen. Finally some happiness!
