16 attempts, with 11 on target? It really wasn't our day to score a bucket-load was it? Last year however, this would have been one of those games that would have ended 0-0 (or worse), so we can at least be greatful for the full 3 points and another clean sheet. Remember folks, the Tampons didn't always have each and every game sewn up the way they should have done, but still came out on top, going on to win the league. Yes, it was a pretty poor performance (particularly at home), and we need to grab each game by the scruff of the neck; after Portsmouth, the following two games are going to be a little more difficult.

Can I just ask how Martin Petrov got onto the MOTM poll, and who in the hell is actually voting for him?!
fifthcolumnblue
Yes the stats prove that we were the best team and we deserved to win. Petrov must have been pretty impressive at warming up to have made the man of the match poll seeing as he never got on the pitch - at least whoever suggested him didn't wish to embarrass Craig Bellamy by nominating after a shocking contribution when he came on as a sub yesterday!
Kevinho
FCB, I think Martin must be a VMC member or his mother s and they voted for him for best polishing of the Berti.
Buzz Lightyear
Somebodys seriously having a laugh as Petrov now has 7% of the man of the match vote and he never got on the pitch! This is almost as funny as when Berti was voted man of the match after the Bolton match on the MEN website with about 60% of the vote - not bad for somebody who miscontrolled the ball and almost set up an equaliser that day!
Kevinho
They dont count the shot off the bar as on target, but they had three chances and nearly scored, we will come up against better teams than this and I hope we gel sooner than later.
