Players Take To Twitter To Hail Team Performance And Traveling Fans

Yesterday we saw what we wanted from the players and the coaching staff – a reaction. We also got our first three points of the season on the board. After the disappointment at Norwich, the lads were fully focused all week and executed the plan for Tottenham to perfection.

Some of the players have taken to Twitter to comment on the great performance, and also the great support they have received. Allan Saint-Maximin’s tweet stands out to us. He had to come off early due to his hamstring issue, but he was still happy to see all the smiling faces in the away stand.

    Just imagine Steve Bruce sitting down on his sofa with a glass of something, smiling and saying suck on that you ………

    Player ratings from the match

    Dubravka – 8.5 quality stops, held the ball really well, good distribution

    Schar – 9 immense defending often getting little flicks at the last second, balls from the back were good

    Lascelles – 9 as above proper captains display

    Dummett – 10 take a bow, incredible

    Krafth – 8 did a lot really well but can tell he is still learning his team mates movements

    Ritchie – 8.5 very solid and offered more of a way out than krafth

    Longstaff – 8.5 very intelligent play and engine

    Hayden – 9 still my player of the season, engine, distribution and physicality

    Atsu – 9 quality got us the goal and ran like a mad man

    Almiron – 9 ran more than anyone i have seen before

    Joelinton 9 great taken goal, worked well, could learn how to push the centrebacks which direction in defense

    Very good win and was a pleasure to watch live with the fans

    What were people’s thoughts on the Var episodes, I thought the correct call was made by Dean (who’d have thought) and it may just be the leveler we were hoping it might be, still a long way to go and there will be some dubious calls but it will get better IMHO

    Repost – the bus sped off!


    A lot of fans have binned their STs, given up going to home matches, didn’t turn up for the televised Arsenal game and all with a view to trying to let the world at large know what Ashley’s done and is doing to our club. Those fans have made sacrifices in the hope that they’re going to be worth it and Ashley’s shamed out or changes his ways. No breaths being held for that.

    Knowing about those fans who have acted against Ashley and being one who has retained your ST and refuse to boycott even one game (as it is your right to do so), have you ever wondered what effect your crowing about getting tickets for Leicester and your seeming encouragement of fans to attend matches has on those who are protesting against Ashley? Have you wondered why you’re perceived as a cheer-leader for the owner? VHas it not occurred to you that Ashley must be clapping his hands when he sees your support for his antics?

    Try reflecting on your actions, go to matches by all means but try to hold back from growing from your precious seat in the stands – you know it makes the protesting anti-Ashley fans angry. Try and show them some respect by not being so provocative.

    Some saying Rafa should get credit for that performance.
    It’s not a system he invented. All of these formations are variations of 4/4/2.
    They have all been tried numerous times over the years.
    They are all well known to just about every coach in the game.

    You still have to organise the team. Get the new players up to speed with it.
    Prepare all week and deliver it.

    Credit for that goes to Steve Bruce and his staff.

    You’ve said that a couple of times – my precious seat that is.

    Well, I’ll tell you a few things about that. Is it precious. The seat means nothing at all.
    This is how I look at it. During the SBR years I went with family. Season in season out I sat next to the same people. Not friends, not family, but the same folks. I liked that. Only, knew them from the match, but always had some craik with them and felt part of something.

    By our first relegation under Ashley they had all moved away. People came and went game by game. Some ok some not so.

    At last relegation got the chance to move to where I sit now. At that location it is still largely the same people season in season out. Sadly a couple have gone this year. One after 25 years.

    Is it precious. Not the word I would use. However, I have decided to continue.
    I’m encouraging others to do the same.

    If you decide to go fine. However, some go beyond that. It’s almost as if they want it to get worse.
    They want Bruce to fail. It helps their agenda, which is about staying away. Many, who push that agenda have not been for 6-8 years. They talk about Rafa, but never went during his tenure.

    Also, many have laughed at our near neighbours down the road. How does the song go. They are here there everywhere empty seats. Their owner was worse. Stripped the club bare and sold the empty shell.

    I don’t want that for us.

    I think your post is an over reaction to what I said and makes all sorts of presumptions.

    I want Bruce to do well. I want us to fill the stadium. Support the team and embarrass Ashley. Protest by other means.
