And the momentum continues. A fine win in another competition. Don’t let the negative press coverage fool you; it was a tussle and we came out on top. Again. The quarter finals beckon. Again. Let’s not devalue the tournament, as it’s one of the two trophies we have a realistic chance of winning this season, based on the refurbishment we are under going.
As for the future, the return of TV5 was a great boost and the thought of a defensive unit next year without a weak link is exciting; for a number of season’s we have had to play with a fault in the back five be it the keeper or centre half. Now I can see the day where a back five of Sagna, Mertersacker, Vermaelan, Santos & Szczesny will present a formidable unit.
It's also refreshing to see Park score in such a calm manner. This guy seems to play and score, be it for club or country and could be that other striker wev'e needed.
All in all the season improves at a steady pace and we can now look forward to Saturday's trip to The Bridge with optomism; optomism with realism.
