We are really solid at the back but we cant seem to get into full flow going forward. Another tough away game at Everton on Saturday despite them being in bad form.

Who ever we face in the Quarters it is going to be tough. Hopefully we can get Portsmouth or any game at home.

Guzan 5 pens, saved 4 that's amazing and he made a couple of great ones in open play too according to commentators, played himself a start in the final if we ever get there.

Great to hear that Ash put a few great crosses in too and scored the deciding pen, hope he's back just in time to torment Everton again.

from listening on WM we were poor tonight, worked hard but created hardly anything. guzan and the defence (particulaly collins) kept sunderland out superbly in normal and extra time. we need to retain possesion and not just hit and hope all the time though. we have some very good players but the system/tactics/training whatever is not quite good enough at the moment.

still, its always nice to win a shootout, and you would think it will give the whole side a boost. carew and young finally stepped it up to score crucial penalties.

MOTM guzan by a mile. 4 penalty saves and some other excellent saves in normal time. he has won us the game

cant rate anyone or anything from listening to a radio commentary, but the noticeable points:

guzan, say no more - although i cant believe he let that malbranque penalty in...

ash put some decent balls in apparently - good to hear and maye the winning pen will give him a boost too

as far as i am aware we didnt get a shot on target - in 2 hours of play!

we are in the quarter finals, having scored one goal in the competition!
