Post Liverpool: Edgar

Post Liverpool: Edgar

Recalled from the cold it`s tempting to think David Edgar probably wished he`d stayed there following our massacre against Liverpool. Despite a goal, Eddie looked ring rusty, tripping David Ngog to concede a late penalty that Alonso gleefully wellied home. The Canadian kid spoke afterwards, saying:

"It was a day of mixed emotions for me. It was incredible to score against Liverpool, who are another big team, and in front of my mother who was at the game over from Canada for Christmas. But it`s bitter-sweet because of the result.

To be honest, I don`t score too many headers, and it`s not a big thing for me. It was a good finish and I was ecstatic. It gave us a lift at half-time, but the third goal killed us off from another set-piece.

But without Shay, it could have been four or five in the first half. We held off before half-time, and that usually gives a team a boost. We did come out flying for the first five minutes, but they scored soon after.

We weren`t happy with the way we defended our set-pieces or the way we defended overall. We were never going to give up and keep fighting. It was difficult to take and conceding a penalty was hard for me personally. But we have to battle on."
