The back four today were tremendous and played as a unit , especially the way our midfield played in support as well . Rice was outstanding and Noble managed to play at full intensity while he was on , probably knowing when he was coming off . Pellegrini has got it sussed and realises that Noble cannot play consecutive games for the full 90 minutes . As for our attack Nasri has made all the difference with the way our game flows .
Agree. I thought Noble ran himself into the ground today alngside the excellent Rice and Nasri was superb. Pellegrini knew what he was doing getting him in despite some opposition. Anderson was Excellent, Antonio just needs composure and a final ball to be a real weapon.

As for Arnie. Gave his all today so no problem. If he goes so be it if not I am sure he will continue to be a good player.
Has not caused any issues, made no statements but players come and go and unlike Payet, he looks like he will keep playing properly until he has left so I have no issue with it. Been an excellent player so far for us.

I doubt Liverpool will relish playing us as teams that pass the ball seem to play into our hands at home now.

I had a bloody brilliant time today! We were great. Diop would have been MOTM had Rice not scored the goal, but Dec absolutely deserved it as a result.

Nobes was fantastic too, as was Cress and I thought Anderson and Antonio had great games too.

Glad Arnie came off, as the frustration showed.

Ground was pumping, as was Carpenters afterwards.

All that, and I got a cheeky photo opp with Marlon AND got myself interviewed by Australian tv, as seen by anyone who has me on Facebook or Twitter 8-)

Just back from game, got to take missus out now!

Anyway, think back 12 months to the Moyes sit on your 18yd box defending for life drab 0-0 with Arsenal.

Now compare to the way we went toe to toe with them this time, playing especially first half the better football.

Thanks Pelle, I’m enjoying my football again.
The difference from now to 12 months ago is almost total mate.
12 months ago was a toxic mess that turned into a civil war between fans and brought about some of the darkest days I’ve ever known as a WHU supporter.
The club need to use these good times as a platform of momentum to push on and not use them as a buffer for more mediocrity.
Hopefully this will be the case.

You are spot on, but mainly I was referring to the style of football, and how we are happy to go toe to toe with the big boys.

I've just got back to Dorsetshire after the game and am reasonably happy. Good to get 3 pts but also a clean sheet.

I thought Arsenal were fucking dogshit though, it has to be said that Abameyang and Lacazette were poo. Ramsey was their only decent player and he didn't even play the whole game.
