Was only saying to someone the other day that that side would probably be relegated these days!Just rewatching the season review from 2004/05. Some tremendous memories, but no idea how we managed to do so well with that team.
What was Beattie trying to do to Gallas? Never worked it out!
low point total as welll wasnt it, alot of gash around us as well
Gravesen, Cahill and Martyn where world class that season and the team spirit and never say die attitude after the hammer blow of Rooney departing was admirable all across the pitch. That was the very definition of a TEAM, something that many clubs these days which are littered with talent (ours currently too), need to grasp.
Exactly, the talent of those players is always underestimated. Cahill Gravesen and Carsley were in top form and were physically dominating most midfields in the league as well as shielding the defence and providing goals. How many of our current midfield do that? Martyn was also far superior to Howard, the amount of one nil wins we got was due to a defence and keeper who knew how to hold out, haven't had that since.
Mentally, they were just a far far superior team to the current one even if the current one has loads more talent in the wide areas and upfront.
Nonsense. We conceded 46 goals that season, in the 10 seasons following it we conceded a lot less goals on 6 occasions.
We've had far better teams that have been more solid and more creative since then.
