Post-match views from the forum:

RandomHero84: “Maybe we will look back on this differently with time, but that was utterly terrible. If we believed a little more it’s a 4-0 win and people can shut up about goal difference.”

SA_Gunner: “Nervy nervy stuff, but job done.

To those who can’t see room for improvement in this team… well there you go.

But big big estep, I will say.”

Tir Na Nog: “This is our big away game strategy. Even vs Sp**s two of the goals were set-pieces. It might have been more comfortable if we got our set-pieces right today but they weren’t as good as usual.”
