Gosling.

 

Changed the game when he came on, got forward very well, provided a good link with the front and could be our Gerrard in future years.

 

 

Oh and did I mention the goal lol?

I gave it to Jags he kept the rat in his pocket all game another top performance as did Lescott. The two young lads had very good games and showed great composure.

COYB great result!!

Very dificult decision-

Lecott, Jags, Gosling, Hibbo (wtf), Baines, Spud....

 

I've gone for Baines. Another outstanding performance from the lad. Linked up really well with Pienaar, and at times was our best attacking option!

although gosling got the winner i think to give him man of the match is a bit wild. he played averagely until the goal and rodwell looked better. jags was a rock all night and had torres in his pocket, can't look past jags for me.

Rodwell was composed all the time, unprecidented for a 17 year old in a merseyside derby with so much at stake, Gosling apart from the goal was average, i gave it to Jags, he stopped any attack and kept on top of babel who could have crushed our hopes had he picked up one of those long balls.

 

stilll.....

 

1-0! TO THE MIGHTY BLUES! 1-0! TO THE MIIGHTY BLUES....etc etc etc :D :D :D :D :D

Watched so much of it from behind the sofa that I'll wait til I have a look at a re-run off the Sky+ tomorrow to decide.

 

Good to see Ossie performing again though, as well as the usual suspects.

I've give it too VDM lol. Tought that he played brilliant for the whole game... om :P but for the amount of time he was on he made such an impact got to go to him. Probably the only points he will get this season on the man of the match thing lol.

Jagielka, hands down this time. Mentions for the excellent Rodwell and Arteta really got into it once Lucas was sent off, before they were down to 10 men we hoofed all day long and the football from both teams was abysmal. Fellaini was an absolute joke, seriously he should be dropped after that with Osman brought into CM and Gosling on the wing. Fellaini hardly jumped for a header and hardly broke sweat, plus he gave the ball away whenever he had it, he had a nightmare. Liverpool didn't create anything all night and Jags embarrassed Torres all evening. Well done blues, they must be knackered now!

Jags for me, he was enormous for us tonight.

 

The Goose, Rodders, Lescott and the rest were brilliant. I think the turning point was the Pieman going off, he seemed well below par in the first half as though he was already carrying an injury. If Mo had remained fit I feel he would have joined Lucas in an early bath, he was inviting trouble, his substitution was a blessing in disguise.

ok as much as im buzzing who in there right mind made andy van motm ahaha il let the gosling ones slide as he is a god but still lets keep it in tactt but so much credit to both of them never the less

 

for 120 minutes jags was a rock! he dumped on torres ..... i come to expect this of him now every game

 

the players i would also like to give a shout out to are

 

cahill- worked his ass off all for the cause he is a proper blue

arteta- so much class with work rate

rodwell- so composed for a laddd thas the same age as my self he looks a class act

 

other then that i thought hibbo's run through the middle was the funnyest thing ive seen in my life :P even more funny they couldnt handle it and brought him down ahaha

Jags as well for me.

 

If i could be bothered to read the above posts at the moment i'd prob just say as above!

 

 

Torres looked throughly pissed off for the whole match after gerrard wetn off, he lacked service and the service he did get Jagielka dealt with amazingly. Not just beating him to the ball but having the confidence to turn him for dead and either play it round him or easily get it back to the keeper.

 

Torres is a top class striker who wasn't having the best of days but his day was pretty much decided by Jags. Awesome stuff and I hope Capello noticed that quality tonight.

Don't mean to slag on Jags at all as he was faultless, but I do think that Torres was off the pace from the moment that Lescott let him know a match was being played. Without Gerrard they really were shit and anyone who says that they're not a one (maybe 2) man team is having a laugh.

 

Have to give it to Gosling, played more than well enough while he was on and took the goal very very well.

 

What about that challenge from Carragher on Cahill from Baines early early in extra time? If not for that I think Cahill would be MOTM.

The 1 chance the R/S had in the 1st half (Howard's only action in 1st half) came about when the ball was stupidly given away.

Does anyone know who it was that gave it away? I though it was the "faultless Jagielka" but not 100% sure.

 

Anyway, despite that I agree Jags for MOTM or maybe Gosling for simply putting a wide smile on my face. It may last a while too :D

For me Hibbert has played very well of late i am far from a fan of his and i've been one of the first to let it be known but he is starting to grow on me lately he seems alot more confident both on and off the ball his all round game seems to have gone up a notch. That run that you mentioned Jackelz had me in stiches he was absolutely flying through the middle classic :lol:

Had to give this a long think. Stand outs for me were Lescott, Baines, Gosling and Rodwell. Arteta looked better than the last couple of games and Pip was solid. Had to go with Jags in the end though, kept Torres & co. in his back pocket all night. If he does not get an England call up after this run we have just had, he never will. Has pretty much kept the best the premiership has, quieter than silent bobs sponsored silence.

Jags got my vote .

Thrilled for Gosling but he wasn't man of the match . Neville was great tonight , and Hibbert also outstanding , but it's the demolition of Torres that impressed me enough to vote for Jags .

Can't believe Osman hit the post lol . Can't believe I also clapped their goalkeeper for his 2nd save against Gosling either . :lol:

Without Gerrard , we always stood a great chance , and even before they lost a man we were on top . After that , Liverpool just stuck the bus infront of goal for the rest of the match . I would have loved for Moyes to have mentioned that in the post match interview :lol:

Absolutely thrilled , and haven't been to bed yet lol :lmaosmiley:

voted Jags - but Arteta and Rodwell worth a mention too.....I thought Arteta quietly dominated the midfield once Gerrard went off, and rodwell just kept it all ticking over nicely, good play with both feet - the kid's awesome!

 

to be fair they all did well :)

Have to agree what most peeps have said, everybody played well except the two substitutions Pienaar and Fellaini, i'm a great admirer of Pienaar but he was way off in that game, he was caught in possession and lost the ball too many times, and failed to find a pass all night, and What can i say about Fellaini, maybe he had a death threat or something but it looked as tho he'd never ever played football before, he was awfull.

 

Special mentions go to all of the back line, Arteta who played a lot better second half, and Cahill, you can see how much he wants to win these games, since playing in the unfamiliar role of lone striker he really does put in a good shift.

 

Jags just gets it for me, how much better can this man be, probs the best centre half in the country at the mo. :)

gave it to jags, hes had torres in his back pocket for weeks!

i was close to voting for hibbert, he was just like the whole crown playing right back, nothing but homegrown passion and determination.

 

moyes mad a big call by taking off fellaini, all credit to him for that one.

 

and its great to see a kid score the winner, but like that, against them, magic.

IMO a usual game for Fellaini :mellow:

 

Anyway, I went for Rodwell even though he didn't play a full game. The lad deserves a lot of credit for how well he plays.

If I hadn't voted Rodwell would have easily gone to Jags yet again.

I haven't got some sort of stalking going on with this bloke but I cannot believe that Phil Neville has not got one mention on here. He is captaining his team superbly at present, leading by example and to even cajole a 17 and 19 year old lad into the game show he is at present on the top of his game. As I have mentioned before all good sides need this type of player and the lad is standing up to be counted at present. It is with this improvement in his game that I feel compelled to give him my vote and that is without taking any recognition from superb performances from any number of lads last night.

I mentioned Neville in my first post , and agree with what you've written wholeheartedly for the most part .

Chelsea fan here.

 

Just wanted to congratulate you lads on the yesterday's win against the Scum. Huge credit goes to your team for staying organized and showing great spirit, and your manager for doing so much with very limited resources. Great goal and I think I screamed as loud as I usually do when Chelsea score (doesn't happen that often nowadays unfortunately).

Really glad for you guys and at the same time very ashamed of the performance we gave on Sunday against them.

 

I'm going to go as far (as a Chelsea fan) as saying that I hope you win this cup as you definitely deserved it.

 

Good luck!

 

PS. I thought Phil Jagielka was immense yesterday. Good job containing lady Torres.

Thanks for that. For your sake hope Terry was taking notes last night on how to make Torres disappear :D

 

Have to agree with The Beard - Neville has been excellent for the last several games and although Jags was my MoM, Neville's a good choice too.

I thought Torres looked like a player that knew Jagielka had the beating off him after the first 2 games.

 

Jagielka really made him look very ordinary in all 3 games and I bet Torres won't be looking forward to next seasons Derby's

For efctaxi, aplogies for missing your praise for Neville, probably still intoxicated at present ha-ha. :D

 

After the United match , I mentioned Neville as one of the positions that needed to be improved , but after further consideration , I think his leadership qualities are invaluable in such big occasions , so I'll officially withdraw that comment , on those grounds , even though I still feel he's not the best passer of the ball . :)

Watching the game back over again Jags is so impressive. Not faultless, as was pointed out earlier he gave the ball away for the Riera chance, but his contribution to the goal hasn't been mentioned as far as I've seen. When the ball came out it looked like Hibbert was going to play it square but Jags stormed through and took it virtually off his toes before passing to VDM. Destined for pens until then. Deffo MOTM and player of the season so far for me.

This week really shows how SOME peeps dont always vote for the MOTM. how the hell can Howard, Lescott, and Cahill, not get a single vote after giving 120 minutes of blood and sweat, same also goes for Neville, Osman and Hibbert who hardly got a mention, as against VD Meyde who gets 5 votes for playing 15 mins and touched the ball once. :o ridiculous.

Very true, why anyone voted for that loser is ridiculous. 1 single cross is all he did, it happend to lead to a goal. Bet he had a drink to celebrate his only meaningful contribution all season.

Agree with you there Bill. I don't agree with how VDM gets treated but on the basis of last night he wasn't the MOTM. One touch of the ball makes his performance better than Howard & Osman? Tch.

 

For me it could have been any of these;

Howard

Baines

Jagielka

Lescott

Neville

Hibbert

Arteta

Gosling

 

I went for Jagielka in the end. 120 minutes of solid performance, brilliant. Kept Fernando in his arse pocket.
