Well no one can say we weren’t lucky in this game. A dubious penalty and a blatant goal that wasn’t, on at least two if not three accounts. But who cares? Perhaps this is the start of the big turnaround. We didn’t actually play that well, with the defence creaking badly, the midfield out of sorts and Harewood largely anonymous. But again, who cares. It’s the three points that count. Just a pity that Man City won. We’re 8 points behind Sheffield United and 10 points behind Wigan and Man City. I guess it’s still do-able but if you look at the games we have ahead it still looks bad.
Carlos Tevez is becoming a cult hero. His effort and skill today were tremendous and he deservedly got Man of the Match from Sky. Not that there was much competition. And not another game for two weeks. The Middlesbrough game will tell us how far we have come and if there is indeed a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel.
