Advochaat: “Working socks off, tremendous crowd, great performance”. Still scary, though.

As the Duke of Wellington allegedly said  two hundred years ago, they might not frighten the enemy but, my God, they frighten me. And it was a bit scary was it not? Like Waterloo, today’s battle was very much a close run thing. But despite the scares created by Pant’s missed clearance and O’Shea’s injury, not to mention a Cattermole booking, we got there and we’re still in the mix.

The gaffer chooses to allude to all of this only in passing as he sends Colin, and perhaps a couple of others, his verdict on a match we couldn’t afford to lose.

Dear Colin,

It was a great performance, we knew had to win today and it’s a much-needed three points.

It was a real team performance, not just the 11 players but everyone involved. Everyone gave so much and worked so hard.

The defence were outstanding; they were so solid today.

The team showed great resilience and worked their socks off to get a result and you could feel the crowd right behind us.

There was a great commitment from the players and it paid off as we got the three points.

[On the penalties] the first one is always easier to take than the second, there’s much more pressure, but he {Jordi Gomez] did well and was very confident when he stepped up.

We worked so hard today and didn’t really give Southampton many chances, I think it was a well-deserved win for us, everyone was brilliant.

Thanks for your support,

Dick Advocaat


Should we start sounding more optimistic?
