I am well impressed with our current form. We are looking strong, positive and well gelled.
'Lil Leon Osman had a stormer of a game, hitting the cross bar on a half volley shot, McFadden and Johnson looked very sharp and Lescott was his usual strong-self.
McFaddens goal and interaction with Johnson was just world class. So nice to see the blues playing an attacking game rather than defensive.
Tim Howard also made several outstanding saves, underlining the fact that we really do need to sign him as a permanent player ASAP.
This current squad, although small, can mix it amongst the best (as we saw last week). With the reintroduction of Cahill imminent, we stand a good chance of a very good league position at this rate. Lets just hope that the current run of form and style of play continues...and that Moyes contradicts his lates press release and signs a couple of quality signings to bolster the current squad.
Just another quick point...it was amazing that we managed to fill the whole of Readings stadium, at least seemingly so, because it was only the travelling blue faithful that you could hear singing the DUR DUR DUR DUR DUR, ANDY Johnson, DUR DUR DUR DUR DUR, ANDY Johnson, and "its a grand ol team" throught the fixture. Nice to see our away supporters are still going strong.
Well done blues!
