Response to Re: Need to win
it was a good game today and the team played well with maybe the exception of Williamson who had another off day (but did put in a couple of decent crosses). Ched's free kick was fantastic and was on from the minute it left his boot. Cresswell's was also good and I'm really glad that he got one because he always puts in 100%. Qinney had a good game too and looked a constant threat down the wing. And what was nice to see was Simmon berating the played several time for defensive errors. He looks to be back to his old self.
There was semi-decent atmosphere possibly with a lot of early Christmas spirit inside some.
The goalkeeper looked bad - he didn't move at all even as they carried the stretcher off. Hope the guys ok. Then in the second half a guy on the Kop collapsed and was taken away to an ambulance.
The only down side to the day was that they closed the Snake Pass due to the 'poor conditions'. I drove across it this morning and it was fine - lots of snow on surrounding moors but none on the road. I think that they couldn't be bothered to grit it (cutbacks) and so if it froze it would be dangerous. So the easy option was to close it. Probably a sign of things to come if it's a hard winter.
Anyway a good win and we keep pressure on those above.
