First...thank goodness! Beating Fulham at home may not be a terribly impressive feat, but it was desperately needed. Yoshida was virtually flawless in his return; here's hoping Ralph sees fit to play him in the center of the back line from here on in. JWP has really taken this aggression idea to heart--can't believe his thunderous tackle in their half in the first half that led to a Redmond chance. Romeu was massive as well. Long again was a disappointment. I've been a staunch defender of his over the years--although he is flat-out poor in front of goal his endeavor has always been inspiring and not infrequently led to goals...often for others.
Perhaps it's just that Fulham is so poor, but how refreshing was it to have a two-goal lead and actually hold comfortable possession for long stretches rather than play from inside our own penalty area. Glad that six blown two-goal leads in the last 12 months didn't turn into 7. Hopefully that will become more the norm. It was nice not feeling sick to my stomach with a second-half lead.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. I never want this feeling to end. Fantastic effort by everyone involved. Special praise to Romeu, who's done fantastic work all year, and Shane, whose tireless running has earned my complete respect--it's only fitting that he's the one who has provided my favorite Saints moment ahead of all the great moments since Markus occasioned our revival. I'll never forget my reaction in a bar full of Liverpool and Arsenal fans: "OOOHHHHHHH----holy **** we're going to WEMBLEY!!!!!!"
