Sandro's debut

Although the scoreline suggests a tight game and, yes, despite going one nil down (again) I felt we looked comfortable for the large majority of the 90 in Fulham. The difference in confidence and ability over the last few years is clearly adamant as it's now not such a shock when we string a pass or two together. Who would've thought a team with Bale and Hutton on either flank would be playing the Champions League eh?

For Sandro his Premier League debut was a successful one. For a South American of 20 he looked relaxed on the ball and didn't stick a foot wrong. Nothing got passed him. His link play between the midfield and attack was also noticeable and he posses the raw talent to be one of our brighter assets in the future. Hopefully Sir Alex won't come sniffing.

It was a shame to see the lad's game end at half time but I'm sure there will be much more of him to come this season.

A good win in Fulham this afternoon now for Milan. Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad thing if we went a goal down?
