Take your bows lads - immense!!
what about colback? he's shut down johnson entirely. mcclean needs a mention too as those 2 were immense dealing with city all match.
No argument - but considering the reps, those 3 stand out for me. Sess was good (though he should have squared that ball), same with O'Shea (except for 2 brain farts). Vaughn was very busy too and even Elmo did some good stuff.
Indeed. Not a Cattermole fan but he was absolutely awesome today, best performance from anyone in a red & white shirt in a long time
Cattermole was class. I was very worried about Gardner being rb as I felt he looked well out of place against Everton but felt he did really well.
....and the crowd was fantastic too!
Thought everyone was solid today, especially the midfield. Didnt neccessary play well with the ball but the workrate and commitment was brilliant.
Barring some misguided passes here and there I think cattermole has mostly played well this season.
Gardner has actually impressed me recently.
He played well against everton. Totally stopped baines as a threat.
Cattermole looks outstanding at times, and isnt diving in in the way he did.
Those three have all took a lot of stick the last couple of weeks and all were outstanding today
Cattermole was especially good!
But the whole team deserves credit, we were together from start to finish, crowd and team!!
On wards and upwards
By the way I LOVE MARTIN O NEILL
I have been a massive critic of Cattermole and stand by the view that until MON took over he has been abysmal for us.
But he's looked a completely different player since MON took over and was outstanding today.
was as worried as the next man when i saw the defence and when brown had to go off i thought 'feck it'.
the three lads did one magnificent job, not pretty but efficient, the midfield backed them up well also, MON said seb had been in bed all yesterday ill, the mig has only had a small amount of pratice time and 48 hours to prepare himself.
elated with the performance and the fans today, what safc is all about.
Yep and Colback. They were fucking class today.
I've never rated gardner at all but he was top notch today, kilgallon came in and did nothing wrong at all. Catts was superb
Fantastic performance for all concerned.
Agree, I'd add Colback.
But it's hard to draw the line there. You could add Mig, especially as it was his first game back. And O'Shea is looking immense at CB.
That they were.
Thought he looked out of place and position a few times and a little nervous due to it.
Absolutely....Killgallon to come in after being out in the cold and slot straight in like that. I knew he was decent! Very calm on the ball too.
Can't believe we pulled it off with so many injuries too.
Catts was excellent, an absolute terrier in m/f without a single dodgy challenge. What did MON tell him that Bruce didn't?
Killa deserves a big pat on the back for coming in, after months of being ignored, and being so solid and composed.
Gardner was superb at RB. Similar type of RB to Burley, but more energy.
Great team performance overall. The goal was bit of luck, but if you can absorb that type of pressure without conceding, you deserve it.
