Quote of the day

"It’s a terrible debut for me – I’m so disappointed. I’m happy to be here and to play, but it is not the beginning I hoped for. I had a couple of chances, and I expect myself to finish better there. I’m not satisfied with that."

Luuk de Jong's post-derby comments exhibit a refreshing honesty and refusal to shirk personal responsibility in defeat. In fairness the damage had already been done by the time he was introduced at the break, but I like to see a player admit disappointment with his own performance - a few others could learn that lesson. Of course, such talk is worth little unless he now works hard and makes amends.
