It`s a Tough League!

It`s a Tough League!

If anyone doubted life in the Championship would be tough then yesterday, down at Portman Road, was the proof.

Slipping to a 2-1 defeat, despite a late rally that saw Fulham grab a consolation goal and push for the equalizer late on, there was no getting over the fact that, compared to the Premier League, the football is far more physical.

After the game, Felix Magath dwelled on this point remarking to the media,

"It was tough for the young players we had on the pitch. I don`t think they were expecting so many tough tackles."

"The ref allowed it to happen and it was hard for us. We conceded unnecessary goals but I was pleased with the performance and I think a draw would have been a fair result. We were the unlucky side today."


Maybe! But perhaps we now need to knuckle down and start to make our own luck!
