I see what you’re saying, but let’s not forget, we had the luxury of a man advantage.
Yeah, i still wouldn't have been confident over the last few years - They'd have become more difficult to break down and we'd have huffed and puffed. Maybe we sneak one (maybe they sneak one even).
There was an element of doubt in my mind when they scored. Also, when DCLs goal went for review. But after that i knew we'd roll past them.
And yeah, like @Elgoodo1978
, when they equalised, after my initial burst of anger/'here we go' i just knew it didn't matter. We had the legs and quality to stretch the fuck out of them and bag a couple.
This is, 100%, just a different team and feeling.
It wont last for 38 games and we'll fuck up at times. But hopefully that game lets everyone know that you can't just turn up and expect to beat "weaker" teams - because there's no such thing in this league really.
