That game was a real walk in the park. Our players were barely in 3rd gear the whole game but we still did it easy... mainly thanks to the pathetic performance of boro... easily the worst by any opposition team in the league this season against us. I won't give ratings, but overall I thought Gilberto was back to his best and really helped make our win so easy. He was left right and centre and was there to help stop just about every attack from boro. Lauren and Ljungberg play too much out of posisition, particularly when it was still 0-0, boro could just walk up their left wing without being challenged. Ali showed great potential, pity about his injury though. Kanu played well when he came on. Cygan was very solid, probably even better than Campbell apart from some poor passes early on. And Pires and Henry played well, not at their best though. Cole was very solid as well, and seemed one of the few who was putting in 100%. No idea who was MOTM though, probably give it to either Henry, Pires or Gilberto. Good result, but I hope that it doesn't make the players feel that this sort of performance will be good enough. Middlesbrough were just so poor.
