No my friend it's not about freedom or pressure. These guys get revved and hyped up because they know everybody is watching and if they get the result it will make big headlines for the individuals who excelled. Plus it's something for these small time players to tell their wives/girlfriends and children about how they scored against Manchester United.^ It's not the first time something like this has happened.
Tonight they were in a cup competition against Man Utd. No one expected them to do anything. There was no pressure on at all. For the first time in months they could go out there and play with freedom.
There isn;t anymore pressure playing us than a lower ranked team who they will get battered by next week like when they play sunderland.
Their players are cheating the fans. They manage to raise their game when it's shown on television against United but week in week out they sell not only the fans but also the manger short by not raising their game and giving 100% consistently
Their players done this crap under curbishley too and I think he got sacked as a result. A stinking club with players who have a stinking attitude.
Lets see if a carling cup run is going to buy them a place above the relegation zone at the end of the season.
