Infinitely better than the last few years where we would have tried to sit on a one goal lead.
I think that was the plan as Jose said after the game, but with Blind's pace, he's not really going to be stretching anyoneDaveMart wrote: ↑Sun Aug 20, 2017 10:27 amI thought Jermaine was correct on MOTD in pointing out that we did not effectively use our FBs to bomb forward and stretch Swansea leaving us to battle it out in the congested middle.
Whether that is Jose's instructions or the player's decisions it could prove a problem against better opposition.

They were really up for it and early in the game were really rattling us. We will really have to start a lot brighter against the top teams because we only really got into our stride once we were on top. We didn't really have anyone pulling the strings in the first half and we were lucky not to be down to 10 men.
That said, the last 3 goals were incredible and to score in such a quick flash was outstanding. I called 4-0 when we went 1 up. Once the second went in I knew we would push for more. We just overwhelmed them.
That said had we not have scored the first it would have been a different ball game completely
