Back from the game, and well, i dont quite know what to say about that......

First things first..... last minute winners away from home in the cup are bloody epic, and I dont care who it was against, but moments like that are what football addicts out of us. Absolutely fan-bloody-tastic, the away end went mental.

More rationally, we look very at home at this level.

Defensively we are just a joke. Comical really. First half we played OK, we contained the expected rush early on, put our foot on the ball, played through it pretty comfortably, scored a couple of good goals and seemed to have it in the bag, easy street. It wasnt a particularly impressive performance, just comfortable

Second half, well, we got played off the park from 45-85 minutes. Totally outclassed. They scored two, could have easily been four or five. Just a total shambles of a football team, so, so fragile. Then, at 2-2, instead of crumbling away altogether, we suddenly stepped up about 20 gears, passed it quickly and incisively, nearly scored twice, then did score.

How important will that goal be? We will see. It felt like a big moment.

    • I think Elphick is quite solid to be fair, I'd prefer him in the team than Jedinak, I like having players in their proper positions 
    • I'm ecstatic they wanted a name, hope they go for another to put another nail in the coffin
    • I stand by this. Good omen? The Play-Off Final is the 26th of may. 
    • This. I think the confusion is coming from @pacbuddies (mis)use of the word "expectations". 
    • Sounded like a moan to me. But well done on avoiding answering my post  
    • Ok but if we are talking about Villatalk then I think you might be confusing lowering expectations with what is deemed acceptable by fans. I don't think any fans are happy to accept playoffs. But we have to except that's as good as it wll get this season.  
    • I don't recall 'moaning' as you put it. I made a simple comment. If you want to read something else into it because it suits your agenda for wanting an argument with someone then fill your boots.
    • It depends what you mean by expectations doesn't it? I EXPECT us to finish in the playoffs. That doesn't mean I think it is acceptable At the start of the season I expected us to finish top 2 and that would have been acceptable.   So I've lowered my expectations based on our performance so far. Doesn't mean i've lowered what I think is acceptable.    So either you're moaning about people adjusting where they EXPECT us to finish, in which case you're moaning about people being realistic based on our performances. OR you're moaning that people have lowered what they deem to be an acceptable finish. In which case I think you've made these people up. I think you'll find plenty of people satisfied with promotion by any means necessary, but you won't find many, if any, who would say finishing in the playoffs isn't below their ORIGINAL expectations.
    • Why don't you read some posts and it will become evident to you that some people have lowered their expectations or have you just replied to my post to start an argument?
