And the best, Mr Poyet, was simply not good enough. Certainly not good enough to inspire anyone to stay up and post your e-mail here last night …
The players showed spirit.
We ask them to maintain an organisation and style of play and I think we did that during the game and put the opposition under pressure.
I think the situation is simple – we were probably better than them in every aspect of the game except the final score.
That hurts a lot, but we are not going to give up.
I was disappointed with the first goal. We talked about it, but at the end of the day we didn’t cope with the situation.
The second goal was similar. It’s a second ball and a deflected shot. It was a typical game of a team towards the bottom – we were the better side, passed the ball better, had more shots and then a deflected goal goes in.
Today the message is we are defending the football club to the best of our ability, starting from me to the last person in that dressing room.
We gave everything possible; we tried our best but couldn’t win. The only thing to do is keep doing it until the end of the season.
We must keep battling. We must believe and it’s my job to make sure everybody does that.
All the best,
