i think he means 'its ok for the fans to celebrate, but we as players know we have to repeat this x20 times'.
The only real things in this reality are how perspective is perceived and eventual death...

& Unsworth kicking ass.

Exactly, don't think he'd be telling us not to celebrate, we've waited long enough.

Is it just me or is anyone else bored of Baines' platitudes when we see such weak performances from him on the pitch.

Not sure that's completely fair given how he played against Watford. A couple of big blocks, an assist, and a fantastic penalty under huge pressure.

Think he showed great mental strength in that moment, kept calm, and didn't just put the ball on target but placed it with power.

He was ok. Nothing to get carried away with.

It's fair enough to say that Leighton Baines hasn't performed up to standard required but I'm having a hard time putting the blame entirely on the player. Full back is a young man's position and he's about to turn 33. He doesn't have the legs to do the job the way he used to, especially not when we need him in the side every week.

It's not his fault that he's expected to play just about every match. It wasn't his idea to build a squad where Jonjoe Kenny, Mason Holgate, and Cuco Martina were the most viable alternatives at his position.

Age has finally taken its toll. It happens to everyone. The club should have done more than make a pass at Kolasinac.

Disclaimer: I am a shameless Baines apologist. Of the players we've had in the past ten years, maybe only peak Arteta or peak Lukaku were better.

Agreed.  He is carrying an unsustainable load, and not complaining one iota.  He's still bringing his (diminished) best every match.  If loving Bainsey is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

Before his testimonial, even?  Surely he'd give it one last season.
