There's no need for balance in my comment because I'm disputing the comment that I quoted, that said Vydra held the ball up and brought others into play. He didn't.

Wood wasn't any better than Vydra yesterday, I'm not disputing that.

Re: Enjoyment

Can't watch us on the box, I get to anxious and find it frustrating. Definitely prefer matchday on the Turf, but have to say I've not enjoyed the football for a while now, and take only a fleeting notice of what's going on.
