That felt nice! Awfully considerate of Leipzig to pull the defensive line up nice and high for the boys upfront. Cheers, mates!
Any other keeper and we’re likely down 1-0 early. Still a bit nervy on the ball but played through it in a big way.
TAA – 7
Looked class all-around. A bit loose a couple of times marking and Leipzig got some chances down that side via Angelino.
Kabak – 8
Might have a player here. Looked incredibly smooth on the ball and strong throughout. Bonus points for running around bloodied.
Henderson – 7
Just Jordo doing Hendo things.
Robertson – 7
Tip of the cap for a fantastic strike from range to try to catch Gulasci out. Bonus points for bundling em into the net like a wet fish. That was a good laugh.
Thiago – 7
Had a nice little thing going with Mo, most of the match. No yellow cards. Which was nice.
Gini – 7
Better in tight spaces than D.B. Cooper. Write that down.
Curtis Jones – 9
Absolute behemoth today. Shrugged players off in possession, took players on, worked hard coming back, provided linkup play. The complete performance.
Sadio – 7
Gave that backline fits. And finally. A goal. Well deserved.
Bobby – 7
Back to making those incisive runs that open up space. Good in position. Pivotal in the link up. Standard.
Mo – 8
That’s seven in seven. Back to his lethal best; punishing mistakes, putting away chances.
Ox – 5 (‘72)
Year of the Ox they said. OK…
Shaq – 5 (‘72)
Elf on the Shelf. Ox in a box. Shaq in a sack. I’d buy one just watch it waddle around in my backyard. Zinging passes and shouting things.
Neco – N/A
