Well done Lincoln. They played until they were truly cream crackered and then superior talent and fitness took over. So it was eventually an easy win for us and a trip to Wembley. Hopefully not a meeting with ManU who seem to have the wood on us in Semi-finals. Finals not so much of a problem.

At last we saw what the lads can do once they motivate themselves. I was so proud of them last night and thought that maybe the miracle we all hoped for might be possible.
Possibly Theo’s goal should have been accompanied by a couple more, even if they wouldn’t have been as sparkling as his, but 1-0 up and looking really good was balm for the recent hurts.
Maybe we should also have had a penalty but to go in at half time with heads held high was great. Could we sustain it?

Maybe the team selected to start was designed with a view to pulling back a 4 goal deficit on Tuesday. If so, it wasn’t the brightest thing we could have done. Suffice to say that the first half was an embarrassment, even for old farts who’ve been there before and have postcards to prove it. I would have thought that the chance of 3 points was more important.

Probably the best pic of the night

So much for blowing all the cobwebs away after Bayern. The biggest worry is that Sutton are in 17th position in the Conference League and next round we play Lincoln who are top. Let’s not concern ourselves about Liverpool and the German return.

When our keeper lets in 5 goals and is our best player. When we make less than 300 passes and they make nearly 800. When our one goal comes from a missed penalty, an air shot and a touch of brilliance. When you think that that says quite enough for the old fart’s thoughts, then enough is definitely enough.

A win. 3 points. 2 goals. A clean sheet. Petr doing a good job. The Ox doing better. Complaints? Other than we could have had 4 or more in the first half via proper goals, not really. At least Hull came to play and made a good fist of it.
And hopefully, Oz may be tempted on Wednesday to show the Germans why he’s been voted “Germany’s best player” so many times. It really is about time he showed us again. Theo showing fight but not much in the playing department.

Nothing wrong with a 5-0 away win, partially avenging the 1-0 (+ 3 offside goals) defeat suffered last year.

Swansea

It’s hardly fair to be a little hesitant in applauding a 4-0 away win but the same old problems emerged as per our last two away games. Why is it that it’s taking so long to get started? In all honesty for the first half hour or so Swansea dominated and but for a really good save from Petr, may have taken the lead. It was very much a case of “Oh Gawd, not again.” Eventually, we got it right and the goal maestro did his thing from close in. But, had he damaged himself in the build up.? For sure, he was asking to come off and was limping when he resumed to wait for the half time whistle.
