Excellent post mate and welcome to the forum. not a lot I can add to your post other than to say that this match was always going to be one that we were damned if we did or damned if we... .I t was good to see Saha actually fit and sharp as I feared another lay off after being mia against Pompey. Also with ronaldo there scoring 31 goals who needs another striker as the so called experts would have us believe. Roll on Wednesday when hopefully Chelsea will also slip up against Spurs.RussianArmy said:There has been alot of negativity about the Derby match, only scoring 1 when we expected to score 6. But there are positives to take from the match. Ben Foster in goal made some critical saves, particularly the save from the Miller shot was a world class save. The main positive for me was to see Ronaldo being played as our main striker. I have been saying for a long time that of the forwards we currently have at the club, he is the one best suited to playing as the main striker. He is tall and strong in the air so he offers a target in the box for the wide players to cross to, Rooney or Tevez offer no aerial threat. Ronaldo is also the best finisher we have at the club. Another positive was that Saha came off the bench and looked in decent shape, he made a difference.
