surprised at the possession stat, the Premium TV (official site) one said even less possession to us 41 - 59 Still, only one stat counts, 1-0. Think we deserved it on our first half performance, second half it was all a bit more scrappy but then we also should have had a penalty when Young was bundled off the ball and apparently the hand ball was a dead cert pen, couldn't really tell from where I was sitting?

Not too sure about the hand ball Fear - could have been given easily, but I wouldn't say 100%. That'll do though....nice to see us 5th in the table for a while at least!

I think we got off the hook today we went at least half an hour without having any kind of attack on their goal,had they equalised right at the end with that great chance we'd be going mad right now.We have to stop sitting back so much,Man U will crush us if we play like that.Laursen was quite unbelievable again today and Ashley owned the left wing.Were 5th,not playing great and have some players that are really looking promising,cant complain (too much)

Where did that referee come from? Thought he was awful. Bowyer spent all afternoon trying to get okey cokey sent off and was fairly successful. Surely managers should tell their players to play the game for the amount of cash they are paid. Bowyer hasn't got the mentality to deserve his position. Why Barry man of the match? Lausen surely. Finally that possession stat was probably right, the second half saw them with so much of the ball, thnk goodness carthorse Cole was upfront for them - and Ashton looked far from fit even before he was injured.

They may have had possession but I don't think they had territorial advantage. I don't mind any team having 90% possession as long as they're playing in their own half, and we use our 10% to win the game ... :o)

We had the possession in the first half, they did in the second. we got behind their defence on numerous occassions, but could not make final ball count. They never got behind us, BUT we did sit too deep AGAIN in the 2nd half and invited them on to us. Thought Luke had his best game for a while until he tired, but Martin Laursen was better than awesome. Is there a better centre half in the Premiership? We still have a long way to go, but we are definitely getting there! One sour note, those MORONS (and that is being kind to them) who booed Petrov when he came on were totally out of order. NO EXCUSE to behave like that. **** off to St Andrews, if all you can do is have vendetta's against OUR players. Petrov isn't playing well or with any confidence, do you really THINK that behaviour is going to help? Silly question, the people in question haven't got the intelligence to THINK. By all means be critical of a players performance after the match, but to boo someone before he has touched the ball?

Well in this game I think we played ok, but did we deserve the win? I don't really care - i'll take it anyway. My only point is that we are due a bit of luck after recent results and capitulations, so maybe this helps make up a bit for points dropped against Newcastle, Man City and Tottenham....
