Yesterday, down by the Thames, was one of those afternoons that make football such a wonderful game.

Trailing 2-0 and coming back to snatch a point made the long traipse home seem like a short stroll.

What is it about Manchester City and our ability to produce a comeback?

Yesterday had me thinking about the Diomansy Kamara inspired comeback on their patch, another sublime afternoon.

After the game, Martin Jol seemed quite pleased that we`d rescued a point from what looked like an impossible situation remarking,

“The spirit will always be 100 per cent if you get the results and we didn`t have the results – it was as simple as that. I felt like we had nothing, with only two points, and the players felt the same.”

“But to show against a team like Manchester City that you can come back and score two goals, must have given us a big boost and confidence for the future.”

“We were a little bit tired but you could see they were as well, after playing in midweek.”

“It was a fantastic achievement to come back against them because I don`t think they`ll give away leads like that in the future.”

The comeback also saw us lift ourselves off the bottom of the Premier League, another fact Jol was acutely aware of remarking,

“It was awful being at the bottom. You have to win your home games. It was not a nice thing to see we were bottom of the league.”

“Now we`re 18th and that`s better than being bottom of the table.

It certainly is!

  • They’ve just started to click haven’t they. That second half performance was fantastic. Dominating for that long spell reminded of the Europa league game against Juventus. Kasami looked like he’d been playing in the Prem for years. And that he’s is nothing but good news. All fo them though played well.
