Great match, great performance with plenty of positives. Porto and that ref should hang their heads in shame. It's meant to be the Peace Cup, not the cup for dirty, cheating, diving w****** to be egged on by a total tool with a whistle.

Proud of the youngsters today mainly but Guzan was excellent, Cuellar came on leaps and bounds, Sidwell reminded me of the Ginger Ninja we saw tear us apart a few seasons ago and Albrighton was very tasty. Lowry and Herd didn't mind getting involved and Clark looked very stable in defence. Seems a shame to not name anyone for a special mention actually and I haven't felt like that in a long name!

A good day on all accounts, and once again Scum fail to prosper.
