Rude awakening

Rude awakening

Our new boy Brede Hangeland admitted that the pace of the Premiership was 'horrific' after making his home debut against Aston Villa at the weekend.

After our victory against one of the in form team of the Premiership the defender definitely had a rude awakening to life in England.

'It was a horrific pace throughout the match,' Hangeland explained. 'I have rarely been as worn out. This was certainly three points we need."

'We should build on this. It was truly strong to fight back from one goal down.'

Not that we saw it though!! Looks a brilliant signing and I believe a future captain (even at this early stage).

I can`t help thinking that "horrific" is probably not the best word to use in this instance, if Brede found the going tough then his personal challenge has just started, he will be a" giant " player for us for sure and that probably is the right word !.
