Liverpool, FA Cup 1/4 final 1977. Should have been one up at half time, Alf Wood scored a blatant disallowed goal that was well over the line. Liverpool went on to win with 2nd half goals from super sub Fairclough.
Watched the match, didn't feel like posting along here. We started off badly and it didn't get much better after they scored. Second half was a bit better but honestly, we just looked so tired out there. 3 games in a week will do that to you though.
Coulson just had a bad game, it happens.
Gestede however, is terrible, has always been terrible for us, and the sooner his contract is up, the better.
Spence didn't have the greatest of games either, he looked scared to take his man on and there was a lot of sideways passing. Again, tiredness or maybe he felt a bit intimidated by Fulham, the lad is only young and breaking into the first team and we should remember that.
A must win game on Tuesday night now, though.
Not really one to share info but been told tonight there is definite interest in Gibson and both parties want it to happen. This information is from the same guy that told me about Ste Walker starting against Stoke which I posted about in the matchday thread a good few days before. As I say just passing on information but makes it more interesting after Woody’s BBC Tees interview.
Just got back (found a nice pub after the game).
Eerily similar to the spurs game earlier in the week. Preposterous first half full of errors, lying deep and conceding the midfield. Second half was end to end. Boro supporters in full voice, home fans mustering little.
Roberts was excellent, he didn't stop running.
Fulham looked dead good though, It took us a full half until we could scare them. I'd like to think a draw would have been fair but I think Fulham were just better (and so they should be).
Onwards and upwards.
