So that’s nine wins out of nine games for the first time since 1910 and we look for 10 on the trot for the first time ever.
The first half made for tedious watching for me, as Bolton did their best to crowd us out. It seemed at times that there were way more than 22 players on the pitch, but we had a few chances as opposed to Bolton’s one, from memory.
Regardless, while we went in at 0-0, I always felt we were in control and I was very impressed throughout the game with our close passing while under pressure. After watching so many years of utter dross football, it really is a pleasure to watch us when we’re on song.
Straight after half time, Abraham, who had already impressed me with his skills played some lovely stuff on the right wing and fed Grealish for a simple knock-down header to put us in the lead.
Once that happened, you just knew it was all over and Bolton fans started leaving.
And then Bolton offered nothing at all. It’s sad, but you can see why they’ve been relegated today.
I was expecting us to go on and get a few more goals, but it seemed we weren’t really pushing too hard, yet Abraham managed to get his 25th goal, before going off with what looked like a shoulder injury.
That’s a bit worrying, to me.
McGinn was subbed and I thought he wasn’t his usual self today.
He seemed like he’d been warned about getting booked and it seemed to take the edge off his game. That’s no doubt the right way to go though.
Jack seemed a bit off the pace in the early part of the game and gave the ball away, but he soon warmed into it and just looks so controlled in his play at this level.
Likewise Mings, who looks comfortable whereever he is on the pitch.
I can’t call anyone as outstanding today, because I just thought it was a decent, but very steady performance all round against frankly inferior opposition.
The lads went out and did exactly what they should do for their money.
It’s another full house for the visit of Milwall on Monday.
Can we make it 10 out of 10 for the first time ever?
I’ll give you my opinion nearer the time, but you probably already know what it is.
