Like others I was bemused by the amount of chants sung about how quiet and shit our support is.

One wonders how happy their support is on the trains home with no points.

I'm quietly happy about our three.
To be fair, the support was pretty shite.

Silly old bat
It was 100% a handball, seen them given. It was not in the same incident as the other claimed penalty against Pervis
It was deliberately kicked at his hand because he moved his hand backwards to avoid contact. I also saw it on the replays on the concourse. His hand was down by his side in a natural position. The Bournemouth player was cheating by kicking the ball to his hand to force a penalty.

So, the morning after, 3 points secured, onwards and upwards.

But with Lallana and Mac Allister out, what do we think of not starting Caicedo, and not bringing him on at half time?

Obviously I trust the manager, but it feels like we got away with one.

My totally wild speculation is that, the manager probably wanted to see what kind of reception Moises would get, also what type of message it sends bringing him straight back. You'd think that Undav and Gilmour are top trainers always knocking on the door metaphorically speaking and that with Mac out and Moises on the bench a qualified risk was to give them some time. When you've got a squad you need to manage the humans in it. Sometimes you just have to accept the risks.

Yeah I agree that you need to give others a chance, but then that's why I thought he could still have come on before he did. If we're hoping for Europe, we can't afford to throw points away for points of principle.

Yeah I suppose only the manager can tell whether ot was tactical or human or whatever. I suspect there won't be too much tinkering when everyone's fit. I was more annoyed at Solly playing more centrally. We missed his one on ones and as much as lamptey is quick he doesn't make the full back look like he wants to cry as much as solly and mitoma on either side.

Absolutely this. Especially with the Boogate episode being totally blown out of the water, he had no idea how we'd react.

Singing the Caicedo song whilst he warmed up was brilliant. Caicedo really appreciated it and gave the fans s clap. Think that's part of what RDZ was looking for as could have shot to pieces the young mans confidence which wouldn't have been good for the rest of the season.

Three lads sat behind me today we're from Italy and we're absolutely raving about us.
Two Juve fans and one Inter, all said we are beautiful to watch (maybe not today) and we're attracting a decent following in Italy thanks to RDZ.
Long article in French sports paper L'Èquipe yesterday about why our fans love Tony Bloom - unfortunately behind a paywall - but we're definitely gaining a lot of attention outside the UK.

According to the footballing sages we gave up anywhere between £60-90million defending a principle with Caicedo. RDZ and the club made the right call yesterday for Caicedo and his advisers, and even more importantly for Gilmour, irrespective of the result.
