The loss last night is gonna sting us for some time. Yes, we were a bit unlucky but nevertheless, we should have got the job done at the Molineux Stadium.
Chelsea and Tottenham play against Brighton and Crystal Palace respectively tonight and by any luck, Brighton will hold off an out of form Chelsea and Spurs will do a Spurs.
It’s a good thing that OGS is still looking at the bright side of the things. Here’s what he had to say:
“I said we needed 15 points from the last seven games (to make the top four), we now need 15 in the last six, so we don’t have room for many more losses.
“We are a very good team, so it’ll be difficult for anyone playing against us. Our performance deserved the win.
“We created our own downfall. It was a very good performance until they scored their second goal.
“But for their keeper we should have won. We created enough chances to win the game so I don’t think there’s any ‘resetting’ (after his fast start as United manager).”
OGS had announced earlier that 15 points from a possible 21 could be enough for us to finish in the top 4. Well, now the equation is 15 out of the possible 18. Will we be able to pull it off? Only time will tell.
Meanwhile, Ole has admitted that it was a bad decision from Ashley Young to go for the challenge that earned him a yellow card:
“When you’re on a yellow you’re always in danger if you go down, it’s a yellow card. It was probably a bad decision (from Young).”
If you weren’t quite sure that we needed a new Right Back, Young’s last night performance should confirm that doubt!
