A red card, a Carroll and Suarez goal; a seemingly accomplished performance by the reds, but was it?
I predicted Novak Djokovic to win Wimbledon on day 2, predicted Andy Carroll to score today, have I got some sort of power? haha. I joke, but BBC Football used my tweet earlier about the bigman! Find it at 14:25 on the live football feed on the BBC website.
Anyway, back to the game. We were pinned back until the crazy red card for Rodwell. Although i celebrated it like it was my 18th Birthday, it wasn’t a red card and ultimately I feel, that is what has won us the game.
My last post was about how Carroll would fit in, and whether he could step up. There were flashes of brilliance that deserved that £35million price tag, but there was also touches and things that I wouldn’t expect to see from a pub league team player. Only time will tell, but he has my support for this season, and we can judge him this time next season.
It was Suarez’s worst performance this season, although he scored for me, he didn’t do a lot but we love him, even if the EFC fans were throwing coins and bottles at him.
Downing was no where to be seen, and it was good to see him come off and Bellamy come on, he added the pace we needed and I look forward to seeing more of him this season.
All in all, a decent performance but it could have been a lot better, and for once we got the luck with the red card & we’re back in the top 4…. for the time being.
Once again, give me your views and I will get back to you.
