We had quite a strong team out there tonight in Holland with only one player of any real note missing, but despite this we still didn’t manage to trouble the opponent’s goal that often, which is getting more worrying by the match.
It is true that, in this game, a draw wasn’t a bad result as we are still top of the group and could probably still qualify from the group if we drew the rest of the matches, but it is getting rather frustrating seeing us huff and puff but not actually do anything.
Even Joe Cole is looking frustrated, which can’t be a good thing and as for Fernando, what in the hell happened to him after his last injury? He just simply isn’t the player he was last season.
Perhaps it has something to do with his hair because since he stopped dying it he has stopped scoring. Please someone send him a bottle of peroxide as we want our goal machine back.
To be honest there isn’t much that you can say about this game, it was rather uneventful and, if I am being honest a little boring, but to look on the positive side we got a point and we are top of our group, so there was something good to come out of tonight’s performance, honest!
On another, slightly more worrying note, if I were Ian Holloway I would be quietly confident about playing Liverpool at the moment, as there is every chance that they could get something from the game and not come away embarrassed.
Hopefully though, Torres will find his shooting boots, score a hat trick and we knock them for six, but that is just what I would like to see happen, not what but probably happen, but we can all dream.
