'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Players Confident Of A Turnaround

The official site has gone into overdrive today with players talking about stepping up a gear and getting back on track after our loss to Rapid Vienna last night.

We have Hokey Cokey and Sidwell looking on the bright side of life today, calling on their teammates to remain positive and making statements that a 1-0 loss away from home isn't a bad result.

Must be just us fans that woke up still gutted then.

First up we have Hokey, the captain for the night, who was impressed with our work ethic:

'I felt we did well in the first half and then in the second half we slightly lost our way. But we're still in the game.

'We're disappointed but we've got to put it behind us - it's as simple as that.'

Funnily enough I thought we looked slightly better in the second half as Rapid bgan to tire, but what do I know.

Sidwell has a different outlook though, apparently we should be pleased we only lost 1-0.

'To come away from home and go a goal down within 16 seconds is tough.

'We kept plugging away and created a few half chances but I suppose the positive thing to come away is that it was 1-0.

'We stuck together, kept it at 1-0 and we tried to keep it tight.'

So all in all, no reason to panic, we are still in the tie and more than capable of turning it around at VP next week.

In the meantime we can find our winning groove again against Liverpool. It's only one game in Europe, and if we really must include Wigan, it's only two games this season.

Don't panic!!!!!

All this bullish talk is all well and good, and I'm certainly not doubting for one single second that they dont genuinely mean what they say, but its only what they actually produce out on the pitch that will determine whether or not we can turn this stuttering start around, beginning at Anfield on Monday evening. We have the players capable of getting the club back on track, the quality is still most certainly there, so while confidence may be just a little low right now, there's nothing wrong that a good result/performance on merseyside wont put right. Come On You Lions!
