Actually admire how he handled it. Turned and tried to kind of gee the fans up at half time when I think in reality he was thinking "stop whinging and pressuring me you f-in idiots"Fans groaning every time he has the ball at his feet. Instead he went long a lot tonight surrendered possession.
Still, if that's what they prefer to see then fair enough.
Takes a lot to continue playing like that when half the stadium are on at you to lump it aimlessly upfield or "get rid" (give the opposition a 50%chance of getting he ball back)
But yes he did go long more than usual.
