Thank God we threw the UEFA Cup, imagine how badly the last two games could've gone if our players hadn't received a rest eh.

I know it went wrong today but let's not focus on players out of position, failure to sub players who simply aren't in the game or any of the normal things we focus on.

The rest was needed and although it's taking a couple of games we will bounce back.

Maybe to 5th place as opposed to a league win but we will bounce back. We keep being told it, and you know how it works, the more you claim something, the more truth it gains.

There is an old saying "don't put all your eggs in 1 basket" and I think foolishly MON has. With that UEFA cup fiasco. Why are the players tired? Played to many games. Why have they played so many games because MON wanted a run in the UEFA cup which meant Inter two bob and then threw the towel in when we got a good shot of progressing. WTF? I am so****ed offright now!

Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit you know. Don't try saying it is irony! Terrible result. I shall have to kick the cat.

still a long way to guys. we will face United, Chelsea & Liverpool in May, so this will go down right till the last game of the season, although i hope we'll seal it well before that. still it's yu guys with the advantage anyway, we have two cup games on hand before our next league game, and yu have a long long break till yu face the spuddies. hope those useless bunch of *****ers do us a favour, but anyway best of luck..

Maybe we have been over achieving with some of the results, especially some away from home. We now need to get back to the training ground over the next two weeks and develop a plan B!!
