What a brilliant game Chris Baird had in the Fulham midfield last night. Played the ball and moved forward, not afraid to try a couple of forward balls for Zamora to chase, and kept looking to spread the play wide. He’s very close to becoming undroppable now. No wonder he’s delighted.
Obviously it was disappointing going a goal behind but we picked ourselves up and got a goal back. Obviously the sending off had a bearing on the game but having said that we were on top.
To get this far, even before this result, has been a great journey for us and we didn’t want it to end. This was a bonus for us after having a great season last year and to get to the Quarter Finals of the Europa League is a massive achievement for the Club.
I got a text from one of my mates saying ‘you don’t get much bigger than that’ and to be fair I don’t think we’ve had bigger than that in our careers. We’re going to enjoy it but we’ll be looking forward to the next game now.It’s important to continue that form in the League on Sunday when we play Manchester City because that is going to be another very tough game.
