Okay, it’s only Fulham, but… I’m so glad the lads didn’t grind out a 1-nil win. They didn’t spend the last 15 minutes pinned in their own third, clinging on and squandering posession.
That they scored early, had to show character, but ultimately dominated the match, was a step forward. The timing of the goals, the long spells of pressure and possession as Fulham tried to recover, the psychological control they exerted. . . They didn’t just play well, on the day, they played like champions do.
