James: Big credit to the gafferVideo
“Today was another outstanding performance from us. As we’ve done in the past few weeks, we’ve been creating chances and scoring them.
“From the start of the season, it was about moulding as a team, and as the weeks have gone by – on Thursday night ,and in the games at Norwich and at Chelsea, the interplay, creating chances going forward and that high press have been a big thing for us. That’s where we got the goals from today.”
“When I came here, I didn’t know what to expect, it was just about getting my head down and working hard,“ he said.“I didn’t think I’d play as many games but the gaffer has shown massive trust in me and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.”
“All the boys who have come up [from the Academy] this season have done unbelievably,”said James.
“Brandon was unbelievable today. He’s great in training every day and has an unbelievable attitude, so massive credit to him to come in for his starting debut in the Premier League.”
“Getting those three points before the international break is massive,”assessed our no.21.
“We have a lot of games when we get back, in the cups and in the Premier League, but we’ve got to take each one in our stride and believe we can win every game, because we’ve got the ability to [do that].”
