I'm as encouraged by this win over WBA as I was after Chavs.
In the past we've struggled at home when teams park the bus. And alot of the time, when we've had good "stats" for shots on target, they're not what I would call good chances.
Yesterday the past master at shutting up shop came to town, with a 6 man back 4 (?), instructions to waste time from the off, and let's play for corners and free kicks (where they are World Champions at scoring, and where we're pretty good at conceding). And then got utterly destroyed.
Right from the start we were creating really good chances. It's not often that a team loses 4-0 and their best player is the keeper. 6-0 wouldn't have flattered us, against the team in 8th.
And we didn't concede a single corner. Another really, really professional performance, and an exhilarating one too. I can just about ignore that my Central Heating hasn't worked since Friday morning.
