I said we'd win at Wolves, beat Sunderland and Bolton 8-)

Sunderland were fucking gash but taking nothing away from Kean and the players, really cannot fault the performance at all. Defended really well, Nzonzi was the best player on the pitch by some distance and ran the game, Formica, Olssons, Hoilett and Yak were always a threat, scored 2 cracking goals and never looked in doubt tonight 8-)

Special mention to Robinson who was extremely vocal, something he has lacked previously, constantly barking orders at everyone, especially at corner and set plays, we looked very well organised at the back. Also Orr with another brilliant overlap and cross to assist the Yak.

Get in!! Fantastic defence performance and we made most of our chances count. Still can't afford to slack off now for the rest of the season. Another massive game on Saturday. Is that the first time we've won back-to-back league games under Steve Kean?


Massive 3 points!! :D

Also, Yak's goal was very similar to the one Dunny scored against Villa, with Orr producing another quality cross. Nice so see Yak showing a "Pray 4 Muamba" shirt when he scored. He's my captain in my fantasy football as well :hyper:

There is always something particularly satisfying about beating a side managed by Martin O'Neill. Especially one he's only just taken over and was annoyingly getting to play "above themselves". Brought down to earth with a bump tonight. And after most of a season convinced it was curtains for us, it looks like we'll survive, maybe even fairly comfortably.

Good first half and Hoilett scored from another long throw, he faded in last 15 mins and gave the ball away very cheaply that put us on the back foot, but overall he has played well for the last 2 and half games :)

2 wins and most people think we're safe. People need to not get too far ahead of themselves. Yes we've won 2 games in a row with 2 clean sheet and we're 6 points clear but I don't think we are safe by any stretch of the imagination.
Anyway, I'm a very happy man tonight. :D

Fair enough assessment there

I still think 34 points will be safety, but we have obviously have to try and win every game. Bolton will be a hell of a test at the weekend now, I can imagine they'll all be going all out to prove something for Muamba.

It wont be like playing the Bolton team of a week or so ago.

2 games four goals and all have been for us! Fantastic a win against Bolton could well make it highly likely we are staying up.

It's looking like it will go ahead.
It could go either way Boltons performance. They may be still stunned and we'll destroy them but if we are to beat them I hope it isn't a walkover as we'd take no credit then!! I hope they play as good as they possibly can and we beat them on merit!! Surely we can't win 3 in a row :yeahright:

Who cares about getting the credit, I'd happily take the 3 points anyway :)
