Personally, I don't think we've had many questions answered today. It was a great win but even last season against Manchester United, we showed our counter attacking prowess. The upcoming matches where teams will try to dominate possession will probably do us a world of good.

We really have to give a big credit to Kone. What a cross/pass to Lukaku. That could've turned out to being a half chance but instead he placed the ball on Lukakus head over 3 defenders and away from the keepers reach. That paved the way for a more relaxed, patient way of playing.

But overall great performance! Good speed coming out a few times, great playing by Lukaku and Barkley trying to help each other and not being selfish.

I think our defence deserves some plaudits. Some big headers out, some good blocks. People putting their bodies on the line.

Much better.

I'm not not a fan of Martinez as most of you probably know but well done to him getting the tactics right today. I hope this is the start of something good because the squad is certainly good enough.

Kone looked convincing - its only 2 games but we might actually have something in him

                i might just have to admit i was wrong about Kone in a few weeks   :clap:  nod

I dont think anyone was really that 'anti-Martinez'... we were just so frustrated that he was being stubborn and the team had lost their way through imposing his passing philosophy to the exclusion of so much else.

He has so many great attributes and I have been proud to have him as our manager, so its great that he's now adapting and the it looks like the team are thriving again.

Early days but a HUGE step in the right direction.

Oh there were a few mate - last year in particular - who got particularly personal. One swallow doesn't make a summer as they say but this will do the boys a load of good confidence wise

Jags was excellent. Always talking, keeping everyone organised. We never really lost our shape at any point and it really went a long to way to limiting their chances.

It helped that whenever they broke we were able to slow them down enough to regain our shape, credit to the midfielders for that.

Nice to score 3 but it's good to see us keep a clean sheet and should give everyone some confidence that we can keep that going in the future.

And look at all the positivity that has blossomed in your absence. ;D
