I think if we come away with draw it's a good result. Glad he has rested Diarra. Happy for him to be pampered until the final. I like Arnold on the right side of midfield. Burst those bubbles.

ive got my money where my mouth is tonight, money on us to win... also got money on nuge to score the first goal in a 2-0 win - come on daddy needs a new pair of shoes...actually forget the shoes daddy need to put money towards his final ticket and/or pay off his season ticket bill...

well, we out played them, and controlled the game. they were slow, couldnt match our [albeit sporadic] flowing 1-touch stuff - we deserved to win. nugent is woking hard, although he doesnt suit the 1 up front position. mvuemba looked better than diop out wide - although the two kept swapping around and interlinking with eachother. generally a good, solid performance, although the defence looked a little stiff at times.
