Very much a side that is a work in progress against one that is anything but, and yet we still managed to get the better of them for 45 minutes.
Early days, but promising signs tactically. Some truly shocking decision making and bad finishing kept us out.
I'm as livid as anyone. I'd implore those of us from the matchday thread to give it an hour or two before spewing more bile here.
That's including me. I'm much more interested in what those who avoided the matchday thread have to say right now.
I was just watching old highlights on YouTube when one of my favorite retired players popped up: Xabi Alonso. It occurred to me, watching him routinely complete passes that at times look physically impossible, that his name does not often come up in the discussion of great midfielders of our...
This is mostly aimed at those who live in England proper but all others are willing to pitch in for funsies.
I often find myself wondering how relative a "long travel" day is for many in the UK. 45 minutes? An hour? As such, I'm curious how long it takes most of you to get to Molineux on any...
Assume there's not enough interest for a devoted WWC thread or one would already exist.
England up 2-0 against Scotland at the half, right now. Both sides playing decently but Scotland seriously lacking a final pass.
Can someone explain to me why the FA Cup does replays instead of just having us go to extra time today?
Anyway, a desperate first half followed by a breathless second. Really didn't look like happening but we managed it, just.
Life in the Premier League, eh?
The real concern for me is that Morgan hasn't shown too well in three appearances and Neves still looks completely out of sorts, can't complete a forward pass to save his life at the moment.
Bring on a signing or two (just not Tammy Abraham, please).
Very little to be ashamed of from that. A really strong performance overall and we made Liverpool earn the three points.
Only negatives for me:
Ruben still doesn't look right. I can't remember the last time he played one of his highlight passes and it wasn't either intercepted or gone out of...
And yes, I'm pantwetting.
It is almost feeling like when the wheels fell off for Solbakken. Not quite that bad, but shades of it.
The worst bit is we don't seem like we're learning anything from these defeats. And that's the part that makes me angrier than anything.
Saw Kenny start a thread for in-the-moment celebrations. I want this one to be focused on collecting and preserving our best memories from this season. Pictures, stories, whatever is. Let's keep a little time capsule of these moments.
Cardiff make you earn everything you get off them, and boy did we earn it.
Great performance, great defending. Shows the growth of this team that today we've faced the absolute archetype of "Championship football" and come out on top.
And after those late penalties, good Lord.
I'm gonna go...
After the nerves and emotions of Saturday, what a calming return to form.
Someone on Saturday said we were flat track bullies. If we are, well, long may beating teams like Reading continue!
Have at it.
