    Lets not forget west Brom are a good team away and really beat Chelsea at stamford bridge if it weren’t for that ‘penalty’. Shame i missed most of the match.

    Swansea is winnable, but so difficult. Man U, unknown. 3-4 points out of those games would be great. less than 2 points, would be disappointing.

    ed you haven’t added the actual man of the match!!!!!!!!!!!!

    manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:36 PM

    shola was immense tbh even when he had 2 on him he showed skill and left them for dead unbelievable really
    makes me wonder if he had this kind of love and confidence earlier in his career wat could have been?

  • 4 krijo // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:40 PM

    somebody dosen’t want Ameobi as MOM

  • 5 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:40 PM

    Ed, bit of an glaring oversight there!

    Press reset and try again ;)

  • 6 yo-yo // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:41 PM

    What no Shola ?

  • 7 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:41 PM

    How can you leave out shola!

    269toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    Wow just wow
    Goofy Debuchy Willo the tank Tiote Cabaye Sissoko Shola all simply fantastic

    Another great win, had to give it to Goofy. He pulls off a great header again and put in an excellent defensive shift also.

    A win against Swansea and I’ll start feeling like I did two seasons ago. Blimey, that’s scary…would never have thought that could happen at the start of the season.

  • 10 gaz 44 // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:42 PM

    Gouffran or ameobi every day the week

  • 11 K T Cat // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:42 PM

    Great team win, no doubt. I had to give MOM to Willo. He was clutch all day long.

  • 12 yo-yo // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:43 PM

    If Shola really is having an Indian Summer in his career then we’ve just got to hope he can keep this up til the summer and he wins the Golden Boot too.
    He IS an intelligent player

  • 13 NUFCarter // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:43 PM

    Alot of mistakes in that article Ed. someones a bit too exited

  • 14 matias // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:45 PM

    Great performances alla round the pitch. Willamson MOM for me withf Gouffran and Sissko very near. Was great to see Cabaye run like crazy in the end.

  • 15 lukes26 // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:45 PM

    I think Ed is asking who is runner-up to Ameobi being MOTM….because its obvious Ameobi deserves it.

    Passing was first rate. Clever player

  • 16 K T Cat // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:46 PM


    There. It needed to be said. :-)

  • 17 Ancientcoptic // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:46 PM

    LOL @ no Ameobi in the poll.

    Williamson just edged Ameobi for MOTM for me.

    I commented earlier today that I thought Ameobi would be uneffective against West Brom. I am happy to be wrong… the big man did us proud.

  • 18 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:47 PM

    haha where like the porridge advert
    that’s 1 hell of a quote!!

  • 19 toonking // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:50 PM

    ed where is ameobi?
    he is the man of the match.

    Sissoko was back to his best; driving, charging, out muscling and scoring – he’s my MOTM.

    Shola again excellent, nice partnership with Remy.

    Debuchy really looks a class act.

    Gouffran brilliant, never stops working and is our player of 2013 in my opinion.

    Williamson 1st choice centre half now! How’s that happened? If he’s got a ball playing defender next to him (as opposed to the lump that is S.Taylor) he shines. Dovetails better with Mbiwa in my opinion, but can see why Pards chose Colo.

    It was only 2-1, but it was a really impressive 2-1 compared to Norwich. If the ref had been sharper I think it would have been more emphatic, but he didn’t cost us a point – really happy, Swansea on Weds should be another good test.
