Play like we did against Chelsea, and we'll be ok. That's been the general feeling, along with the obvious "why didn't we play like that at Swansea?" As my mate said, it didn't feel like a defeat because we ran Chelsea so close, but we are still where we are and need wins.
Thankfully everybody else at the bottom lost during the week so at least we're no worse off than we were.
Most thoughts were about playing the same formation against Watford, but most of us decided that Vic needs to come back, which would make that tricky.
Swings and roundabouts - Ndong is back from suspension, but Kirchhoff is injured yet again. Remember Charlie Hurley's team that paraded before the Hull game? They only used seventeen players all season. We've used twenty seven already, making you wonder exactly what footballers are made of today.
Anyway, with no money available next month as a result of us being one of the very few honest clubs about, Moyes will have to work with what he's got. Starting today, and with four attackers on he couldn't be criticised for negativity. Mind, Watford could, having started playing for the draw about half two.
PVA struck early in the second half to get the three points form a hard fought but well deserved win.
Happy Christmas, Paul Dobson
