In the car on way home after match. That was much better than I expected. If we had played like that more often then we wouldn't be in the relegation zone. There was more fight in that team today than I've seen in weeks/months. Credit to Shane long who worked his socks off and put himself about (and even managed to score). I'd feel positive about what I saw today if it wasn't a case of needing points right now. McCarthy made a couple off great saves and we played some nice stuff at times. I wasnt convinced by Stephens.
He's simply not a centre back...play him infront of a strong back three and he looks a different player. Late last season and early this I thought he was our most promising young player but because of disposing of VVD and not replacing him Stevens has had to fill in in a position for which he's not suited.
He's taking a lot of unfair stick...we needed an experienced dominating presence in the January window, we never got him.
