Up at White Hart Lane, on cloud nine was the expression I`d use when Ricardo Vaz Te gave us a 2-0 lead, but when Ravel Morrison scored that wonderful third goal I thought I was dreaming.
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever, based on our away form this season, think we`d go to White Hart Lane and win 3-0.
But we damn well did and with the Hammers travelling support filing out onto the Seven Sisters Road all the talk was od that wonderful third goal from a player who is destined for the big time.
Big Sam Allardyce, with a hint of a smile on his face, had this to say about Ravel,
'He's 20, but he's quite old in terms of years but he's learnt so much in a short period of time. That's the beauty. The penny has dropped."
'While [his former manager] Sir Alex Ferguson told me I hope you can sort him out because you will have a top class player on your hands, I'm not sure I've done that but he's enjoying his football. He can do something no one else can do and we saw that today.'
We certainly did and we`re sure there`s more to come, even more so with our captain Kevin Nolan adding,
'Ravel Morrison has been fantastic. Last year we had a lot of problems with him his lifestyle off the pitch but he went to Birmingham [on loan] and worked hard and came back and got back in the team."
'Me and Mark Noble speak to him and have had big long chats with him and we like to protect him and take him under our wing. We are excited by his talent, and I think you are now starting to see the player that Manchester United saw when he was younger.'
Happy times are a coming I reckon!
