    europas ruined our season

    Evening fellow Yids.
    Havn't posted for a bit, but still been reading the posts,which i normally enjoy.
    This one's one of those(interesting).
    Some good points raised with reference to injuries,though i'm sure all PL players love to play in european games against foreign teams as this is a way of showing your wares and equally getting to play against some of the best players in the world,also to experince some of the different atmospheres these games bring.
    Sadly all games will bring injuries of one sort or another and to our cost this seems to be the case for Bale and Lennon,or are we just looking for excuses.
    The sad thing for us is that it had to be 2 of our most dangerous and influentual players.
    I'm sure if Chelsea were to lose Mata and Hazard at the run in of the PL,then they would be as anxious as us with the run in.
    What angers me is the fact that both Chelsea and the Popguns are revelling in the fact that we have 2 key players injured and will take great pleasure in Spurs slipping up in home games as we did against Everton on sunday.
    Yes,this was 2 big points dropped,even though we equalised late on,but i do think we at least deservd the draw.
    One thing that did annoy me though,was that he didn't start with BAE in the back 4 and went for Caulker,who i feel is not up to to the job yet.
    Vert is not a natural LB and was part of downfall to Everton's second goal.
    For me the back 4 is vital at full strength with key players missing in the middle(ie-Bale and Lennon)and so therefore i thought he should have gone with-
    This gives us solidarity in the middle and pace down both flanks in defending and attack.
    Sundays game also highlighted a weak bench,although i did think the Hudd did a decent job when he came on for Dembele, which seemed a bit strange at the time.
    Just hoping we can get players back in good condition for the run in,as it will seem like a massive kick in the nuts to have gone most of the season in 4th/3rd only to slip up at the final hurdle.
    Anyway here's to onwards and upwards with a wee bit of luck and no more injuries to key players.
