No surprise that Elano got the nod as MOTM, but this one was a great team performance where everyone did their job and deserves praise. Hughes is right that some teams would have folded after losing the double header against Hamburg, but theat win at Eastlands seems to have just lifted the Blues and we're starting to grind out results. If this tie had been in December we probably would have lost it. But here we are with four wins on the run and next up the Rags!

Is Elano a mood player, likes to play well in the sun and on a flat pitch, or is the fact that he has been given a run in a settled team which has been the reult of this good form?
