Bigger Van de Ven worry, Vicario explains Postecoglou instructions and Son on his bouncing heart

Chaos, collapse and pleasure

Tottenham Hotspur do not do regular. If there is a method to spontaneously combust in a soccer sense but make their supporters proud, all of the whereas exhibiting up how ridiculous the VAR system has turn into with 21 minutes of time added on to a chaotic encounter then Spurs will discover it.




This was a match that had two pink playing cards, two key accidents, 5 targets, 5 disallowed targets, 9 VAR checks within the first half alone and normal mayhem from begin to end in a sport that lasted 112 minutes.

Yet at its finish, as that they had completed when Spurs went 3-1 down within the 94th minute, the house followers dominating the 61,726-strong crowd rose to their toes to applaud the 9 knackered males in white shirts on the pitch.

Relatively few Tottenham supporters had left regardless of the late hour and as an alternative they belted out a loud rendition of ‘Oh when the Spurs go marching in’ because the gamers hobbled round acknowledging their unbelievable help with Ange Postecoglou.

This time final season and these gamers would have been booed off the pitch, most likely at half-time. Yet such is the credit score earned by their begin to the season and additionally the battle proven by the staff, these followers knew that they had earned their applause and that 4-1 scoreline was completely deceiving.

For by some means, with 9 males, Tottenham had nonetheless proven every little thing that Postecoglou needs, together with urgent and taking part in with a excessive line that squeezed the pitch into the Chelsea half.

Eric Dier, Rodrigo Bentancur and Son Heung-min all had nice possibilities to attain however a matter of inches determined that Spurs wouldn’t add to the scoreline. Had one in all them gone in you’ll think about that the 2 late breakaway Chelsea targets that got here deep in added time may not have arrived as Tottenham fought for his or her level, however figuring out Postecoglou’s manner they might nicely have nonetheless pushed on.

“It is just who we are mate, it is just who we are and who we will be for as long as I am here. If we go down to five men we will have a crack,” stated the Australian to Sky after the sport.

It is the fallout from this match that may show the largest drawback to Postecoglou fairly than the outcome on the night time, shedding Micky van de Ven with what seemed like a critical hamstring harm, his defensive companion Cristian Romero returning to previous methods and getting himself banned for 3 matches, James Maddison struggling once more with his ankle and Destiny Udogie choosing up his personal suspension.

For an evening that was meant to be all about Mauricio Pochettino’s return to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, you’ll barely have recognized he was there due to the entire chaos that surrounded the 112 minutes of soccer.

The Argentine was greeted warmly by Postecoglou however there was no second for the Spurs followers to make their emotions recognized in both manner in direction of their former supervisor.

Instead all the main focus was on a sport that introduced loads of the ridiculous and choose moments of the elegant.

“It’s hard to analyse from a football perspective,” Postecoglou advised soccer.london. “You’re left with the outcome which is disappointing. You do not wish to lose, significantly right here at house. Super happy with the gamers’ efforts, will, willpower and want to attempt to get one thing out of the sport.

“Then there’s the fallout from it from our perspective, personnel-wise. I guess we’ll deal with that in the coming days.”

The VAR waits have been lengthy, frequent and excruciating and after Van de Ven’s harm it is price questioning simply how harmful the lengthy spells standing round have gotten to the gamers as their muscle tissue begin to settle down.

There was additionally the rarity of a yellow card for Postecoglou as he stepped out of his technical space for too lengthy and was penalised.

Postecoglou hates VAR, no matter whether or not it helps or hinders his staff. He loathes it as a result of it is the nemesis of how he needs his staff to carry out and the sport to be performed.

He bristled when one reporter requested whether or not the Premier League managers ought to get collectively by way of the LMA to show the referees the right way to referee a sport.

“See that’s the problem. That’s the problem. Premier League managers should just manage their football clubs. I’ve never and I never will talk to a referee about the rules of the game,” he stated.

“I used to be taught that you simply develop up and you respect the officers. You know what managers do? I inform you what managers do. We, me included, attempt to discover methods to bend the foundations and get round them. Tell me what the rule is and I assure you will have a room filled with managers processing ‘how can I get round this?’.

“They’re not the fitting individuals. We’re not the fitting individuals and I get that folks hold saying that. I do not agree with that. What I need is one of the best officers at all times being upskilled to officiate the sport.

“I think that it’s so hard for a referee to officiate the game nowadays. Their authority is constantly getting diminished. I grew up afraid of referees. They’d be like policemen. Nowadays I guess we talk back to policemen as well.”

He added: “I’m old-fashioned mate. I’m from a bygone period and I identical to the purity of the sport however that is not what is going on on.

“Part of that is my drawback. I’ve obtained to embrace it and discover a method to work with it nevertheless it goes in opposition to every little thing I wish to work with my staff on. I need my staff to play quick, attacking, excessive tempo go at it soccer.

“If we get a pink card, a penalty in opposition to us, so what. Let’s cop it, let’s go once more. But we’ve got to face round for 2 minutes making an attempt to determine if one thing is offside or not. Let the linesman make the choice.

“Remember it used to be the benefit of the doubt to the striker. Remember that? We all lived with it. The game didn’t collapse, but like I said I’m an old man shouting at the clouds mate. I’ll cop it for that but that’s who I am.”

Postecoglou went to the theatre on Tuesday night time, a visitor of Spurs season ticket holder and Oscar winner Sir Kenneth Branagh to look at him direct and lead his manufacturing of King Lear within the West End.

When requested in his pre-match press convention whether or not he hoped for one more dramatic efficiency on Monday night time he stated: “Yeah, there was a fair bit going on in that play, mate! I definitely want a better ending than Sir Kenneth had, for sure!”

Unfortunately, there was extra drama aplenty and one other sad ending however the crowd nonetheless rose to their toes to applaud because the curtain got here down.

Cristian Romero walks off after receiving a pink card through the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea

Old Romero and inexperienced Udogie

The critics of Cristian Romero will say this was at all times coming. There was solely so lengthy the Argentine might stroll the fitting aspect of the road he was at all times teetering over.

The 25-year-old has been great this season, main a younger, inexperienced backline with a maturity befitting a vice-captain and World Cup winner, utilizing his entrance foot aggressive defending in the fitting moments.

He has earned reward from Postecoglou, his team-mates and from pundits and the media alike. He has simply been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award for October.

Yet on Monday night time he regressed to the immature, rampaging, wild and unreliable participant he has been on events up to now since arriving from Serie A.

Romero loves to depart his mark on whoever he’s tackling. His team-mates know that in coaching. Like they might say about his compatriot Erik Lamela, you have to put on your shinpads at Hotspur Way if Cuti, as he’s recognized, is coaching on the other aspect to you.

It’s the glee of wiping somebody out, like that youngster within the playground who would enjoyment of bruising shins and ankles as a lot as taking part in the precise sport of soccer.

Just watch movies of Spurs’ coaching periods and you will see Romero flying in on somebody. This week’s providing from the membership’s social media channels confirmed the Argentine throughout one observe match diving in on Eric Dier, satirically now the one accessible senior central defender.

It’s not malicious and the Tottenham gamers love Romero. It’s simply who he’s. He’s a humorous large brother character off the pitch and on it he at all times has their again. In phrases of technical means, he is probably the greatest gamers on the membership.

Yet this match confirmed what occurs when Romero switches his mind off and permits the eagerness to overwhelm him. He was too overrated from the primary whistle and in a derby when Spurs wanted cool heads, his was overheating.

One of the moments when you need to at all times fear about Romero is when he loses the ball or is knocked over. How will he react? The identical manner he usually does. It goes again to that youngster within the schoolyard analogy, this time embarrassed and on the ground. The retaliation is often with an aggressive motion.

On 22 minutes, Romero most likely ought to have obtained an earlier pink card. He lashed out after being felled on a run up the pitch and his kick caught the leg of Levi Colwill off the ball. It wasn’t the toughest kick you will ever see on a soccer pitch however the intent was there.

VAR had the briefest of seems to be at it however was extra within the handball that might rule out Raheem Sterling’s strike within the aftermath after Chelsea broke up the pitch.

In that second most gamers would thank their fortunate stars on the reprieve and make sure that they made their most of their second probability. Not Romero.

Instead the Argentine launched right into a problem on Enzo Fernandez which, whereas he did get the ball, his foot was excessive up the ankle of his compatriot within the comply with by way of. It was a wild and uncontrolled problem which might have resulted in a a lot worse final result for Fernandez.

Again VAR solely noticed it whereas ruling out Moises Caicedo’s purpose for Jackson being offside and obscuring Guglielmo Vicario’s view. The penalty was awarded and referee Michael Oliver suggested to try his pitchside monitor. Romero was duly proven the pink card he appeared decided to get.

Postecoglou was reticent to publicly criticise a participant who he has improved drastically this season and relied on to guide that younger backline.

“He’s a physical guy. It’s a part of his strengths and today it was deemed he went too far and we’ve just got to cop it,” stated the Spurs boss.

Privately the Australian or his workers may have had a phrase with Romero as a result of it might’t occur once more. Spurs will now lose their defensive talisman for the matches in opposition to Wolves, Aston Villa and most worryingly Manchester City, all compounded by Van de Ven’s possible absence.

There was additionally Destiny Udogie. There was widespread aid when the 20-year-old was in a position to return to the squad after lacking the win at Crystal Palace by way of harm and he quickly confirmed why with raids down the left and drifting into central positions which induced loads of issues for Chelsea.

Then he began to lose his self-discipline. Just 18 minutes in, the younger Italy worldwide dived right into a two-footed problem on Sterling, with his toes off the ground. He was booked by Oliver and VAR determined, fortuitously for him, that it was not fairly sufficient for a sending off. In reality it might simply have been one.

Again although, like Romero to a level, Udogie seemed his reward horse proper within the mouth and early within the second half launched right into a late sort out on Sterling out vast which left the referee with no possibility however to brandish one other yellow card.

The younger defender had simply made a terrific interception on the sting of his personal field however with the adrenalin coursing by way of him, he flew right into a sort out that was fully pointless in an space of the pitch the place Sterling was drifting away from purpose.

His team-mates consoled him and with Udogie, you’ll be able to have in mind that this can be a very younger participant in his first few months within the Premier League, merely determined to impress and the event obtained to him.

Romero sadly, with the accountability of being one of many staff’s vice-captains, must be given much less leeway.

He will return for one more house derby in opposition to West Ham in a month’s time and he must present extra management and hope that the makeshift defence he leaves behind doesn’t undergo an excessive amount of in his absence.

Vicario and those that battled with him

Among those that deserve great credit score amid the chaos on Monday night, Guglielmo Vicario was a person possessed.

It was an evening when the Italian confirmed every little thing that he’s and can turn into for Tottenham Hotspur.

The solely purpose that Postecoglou was in a position to play with such a excessive line with solely 9 gamers was as a result of Vicario has the tempo and consciousness to play like a sweeper keeper, virtually reaching the midway line at instances with his bursts out to slip into tackles.

He made a giant save early within the sport low down from Jackson after a mistake from Pedro Porro and then he was agonisingly near getting a fingertip to Cole Palmer’s penalty.

In the second half he made a few courageous saves, one with his face from Marc Cucurella’s shot on the finish of his run.

The Italian took the hits like that in addition to a boot to the leg from Mykhailo Mudryk as the sport wore on.

It was a match the place the goalkeeper conceded 4 targets however was great. There was little he might have completed about any of them, Jackson’s hat-trick just about the identical shut vary unmarked purpose each time barring the ultimate one when he skipped previous the stopper.

Postecoglou’s surprising excessive line virtually labored. Rather than sit again and invite stress and possibilities for the guests, it squeezed the match right into a smaller space of the pitch and challenged Chelsea to get their passes and runs proper to both beat the offside lure or the onrushing Vicario.

It additionally pushed Tottenham additional up the pitch and put them into the positions to create their three large possibilities. Ultimately, they didn’t take them and the late punishing targets and the scoreline will recommend the tactic was naïve fairly than the way it virtually performed out on the night time.

“We have been most likely all watching it considering ‘that is mad’, nevertheless it was virtually genius! Yes the targets got here from that [the high line], however Tottenham stored themselves within the sport for therefore lengthy,” stated Sky pundit Jamie Carragher.

“The goalkeeper was absolutely sensational. You talk about a sweeper keeper, I’ve never seen anything like that.”

Vicario had reward for these round him and the followers after the sport.

“I think we gave everything, everything we had inside and I think we have to be so proud of all that we did on the pitch,” he stated in his membership interview. “Of course we’re unhappy in regards to the outcome since you at all times wish to win however I feel the hassle we made tonight was so large and the group and the followers.

“It was an unbelievable efficiency from the lads. Just to be proud and in fact work on what we have to enhance however I feel we confirmed loads of good things tonight so simply to clear our thoughts now.

“It’s difficult after an emotional game like that but we need to recover and then we go again to give our best in the next game.”

On creating these three large possibilities with simply 9 males, he added: “This was unbelievable. I feel we tried to remain within the sport till the final minutes and in fact it’s important to concede some conditions as a result of it is not straightforward to play soccer with two males down.

“I think we deserved maybe a little bit more because we gave everything but that’s it. We accept this, this defeat and we go on.”

Vicario was requested whether or not the excessive line and his job in sweeping up behind it was instructed by Postecoglou or only a pure resolution through the sport by the gamers.

“Of course you have to make a choice. You have to take some risks because we think if we stay 50 minutes inside the box they could have more chances to score,” defined the Italian. “So we tried to keep this strong high line and I think we did a great job. Of course you can concede some chances but yes everything was in our plans.”

The solely different defensive participant who began the sport and ended it was Pedro Porro. After that early mishit cross that he was bailed out from by Vicario, the Spaniard was phenomenal.

He made 4 tackles, three clearances and blocked one shot whereas utilizing his excessive health ranges to rise up the pitch and contribute six crosses, three of them profitable, and one key cross.

It was his teasing free-kicks that introduced the massive alternatives for each Eric Dier and Rodrigo Bentancur.

Then there have been the gamers who got here on. Eric Dier was immense in his first look of the season.

He made some early interceptions which rapidly boosted his confidence and his end for the disallowed equaliser was one in all a striker would have been happy with. It additionally stated loads about Chelsea’s defending that he was in a position to get away unmarked on the again submit regardless of the guests having two additional gamers.

Yes he and the defence have been caught excessive up the pitch within the closing moments however that was at all times an opportunity with the dangers being taken.

Dier obtained 78 minutes in his legs in all with the added minutes and that may give him an honest basis as soon as the aches subside forward of a interval when he’s going to have turn into the principle man within the defence once more.

For a spell he had Emerson Royal alongside him in an unfamiliar centre-back position, through which the Brazilian did nicely earlier than shifting throughout to the left following Udogie’s dismissal.

That introduced Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg into the centre of the defence and inside seconds the Dane was celebrating a formidable block with his knee on his goalline like he had scored a purpose. Once once more the midfielder made a giant contribution this season from the bench.

Oliver Skipp additionally got here on and offered the power required, making one vital interception within the Spurs field quickly after and it was his wonderful fast cross to Son which might have introduced the leveller just for the South Korean to barely scuff his shot and Sanchez saved.

Rodrigo Bentancur additionally obtained 39 minutes into his legs and he seemed far sharper than somebody ought to after eight months out of the sport. The solely second when that rustiness confirmed was when he related with Porro’s wonderful ball into the field and as an alternative of protruding a leg or making a agency reference to his head, the Uruguayan headed the ball down and vast from six yards out.

His face confirmed how large that second was however his efficiency was a preview for what’s to come back as he’ll turn into a giant presence once more inside this Tottenham staff below Postecoglou.

Bissouma and Sarr additionally impressed with their workrate throughout their time on the pitch and Vicario had loads of reward for these gamers who got here on and gave their all within the shirt.

“We have to be proud of everyone,” he stated. “Big effort by Pierre, big effort by Eric, by everyone who came on, Skippy, Rodri and Eme. It was not easy. Too many situations, too many changes in roles on the pitch [because of the red cards] but I think we have a big mentality and we can get over this type of situation. We have to be proud of ourselves and then we have to go again.”

The followers appreciated their efforts and applauded them off the pitch, the Italian goalkeeper particularly has earned himself the repurposed chant as soon as sung for Antonio Conte which now merely goes ‘Vicario’.

“I’m so thankful to the crowd but we are thankful because their applause at the end means a lot for us because they have seen all the effort we have put inside the pitch so a big thank you to our people, to the Spurs fans for tonight and now we go again on Saturday,” stated the goalkeeper.

What comes subsequent

Dejan Kulusevski had began the entire night off with his low deflected purpose and at that time it appeared as if the sport was solely going in a single course. However, 106 minutes later and Spurs have been crushed however not demoralised.

“We were proud, absolutely. We were very, very angry, but the coach was very proud and the players also. You cannot ask for more than this,” stated the Swede about what it was like within the Tottenham dressing room.

“We played with two guys off and we still competed at a high level. We created a lot of chances and did good, honestly. You cannot do more than this.”

On the group’s response after the late targets and closing whistle, he added: “It was unbelievable, honestly. Some things are bigger than life, bigger than football, bigger than the wins. Honestly I was really proud of that moment and the fans. I was grateful and it makes me want to give more back.”

Then there was Kulusevski’s purpose celebration, cupping his fingers round his eyes as if to indicate tunnel imaginative and prescient.

“It was just watch straight, don’t watch nobody else. Just listen to our coach, be with our team-mates and watch straight that is all. Nothing else,” he defined afterwards.

Spurs must focus solely on themselves now as a result of the fallout from the match means they must proceed to rally collectively with out some key gamers all through their core.

“It’s too early but looking at Micky you’re thinking it’s a pretty significant one so you’d assume he’ll be out for a little while,” stated Postecoglou. “Madders got a knock on the ankle and we’ll just have to assess him and see how it is.”

Van de Ven left the stadium on crutches and with each Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld having lengthy durations out with critical hamstring accidents up to now, Spurs followers will likely be fearing comparable for the younger Dutchman.

There can also be the fear for the long-term for a participant for whom tempo is such an vital weapon in his arsenal.

He suffered a hamstring harm early final yr whereas at Wolfsburg which stored him out for 2 and a half months and he missed 12 matches. Too many speedy gamers have discovered themselves hampered by reoccurrences after their first critical hamstring harm. Van de Ven want solely look throughout the physio’s room at Ryan Sessegnon as proof of that.

The Dutchman has made such an attention grabbing begin to life at Tottenham that fingers will likely be being crossed in all places that that is only a hiccup fairly than a key second in his younger profession.

Maddison’s ankle drawback, which has been an ongoing challenge, will likely be a priority however will hopefully require much less day out except any surgical procedure is required.

Now it is about who comes into the staff. In the centre of defence, Postecoglou should determine who companions up with the Dier.

If Ben Davies returns from his personal ankle drawback then he performed there in pre-season however the lack of tempo in that duo might concern the pinnacle coach.

He might flip to Emerson Royal once more as a transformed centre-back however the Brazilian is more likely to be wanted at left-back.

That means a possible debut for 18-year-old Ashley Phillips, who to this point has simply three video games below his belt for the U21s following his summer time transfer from Blackburn. He additionally has eight Championship appearances to his identify after stepping up in comparable circumstances for the Lancashire aspect final season.

He is not going to be fazed by the expertise and his tempo will enable Postecoglou to form the defence nearer to what it must be to execute his model of soccer.

“Yeah probably he is ready,” Kulusevski stated of Phillips after the sport. “It is the coach that decides that, however I feel each participant is unbelievable within the coaching.

“Everybody is ready, everybody wants to play and it is so high level the training. So, if he will be called, he will be ready.”

Phillip’s fellow England U19 worldwide Alfie Dorrington has additionally been staking his declare for a call-up to the senior aspect with his dazzling performances in central defence for Wayne Burnett’s U21s this season.

Also 18, Dorrington has a flip of tempo and has a capability like Romero and Van de Ven to stride out of defence with the ball and dribble or play a key cross. In reality, his performances when alongside Phillips for the U21s have been extra eye-catching.

Phillip’s additional first staff publicity and expertise will more likely to see him get the nod however Dorrington will look to push his identify into the body.

Either manner, the choice to promote Davinson Sanchez with out the flexibility to usher in a alternative is wanting even worse than it did on the time and it places much more stress on Spurs to usher in a brand new centre-back within the January window as Postecoglou wished in the summertime.

Should Maddison require day out then which may sign the return of Bentancur to the beginning line-up, relying on how his physique reacts to this newest bout of soccer after so lengthy out.

The Uruguayan isn’t the identical sort of participant because the England worldwide however he does have attacking instincts as proven with his game-changing shows final season earlier than that harm at Leicester.

Another various is to place Kulusevski into Maddison’s position and convey one other attacker into the entrance three.

Richarlison’s upcoming surgical procedure on his pubic bone has come at a tough time for Postecoglou however the Brazilian admitted after the sport that it is one thing that is been looming.

“Of course I expected to play today as it was an important game, a classic. Yesterday I found out that I wasn’t going to play, but it’s part of football. Of course selection, call-up, you can ask any player and he’ll be waiting. Of course I expected it, but I already felt that it was also time to take a break,” he advised ESPN Brazil.

“Look, the last few months haven’t been easy for me. I’ve also been suffering with my health, I think I’ve already spoken to the doctors and I’ll soon have pubic surgery. I’ve been suffering for eight months, fighting, looking at the team, at the club and I didn’t look for me. I think the time has come to rest, take a break. Let’s see the next few days, soon I’ll do what’s best for me.”

Richarlison had been dropped by membership and nation on the identical day and was emotional in his interview so it must be seen simply how imminent the operation is following his worldwide omission.

Brazil’s coach Fernando Diniz stated on leaving Richarlison out: “More than the system, I’ve to attempt to be truthful and have a look at every little thing that’s occurring. I imagine that these gamers that I referred to as up for this second will likely be higher in a position to ship what I’m anticipating.

”Richarlison is a superb participant and performed very nicely in the principle competitors, which is the World Cup, and was unable to ship what he might in these video games. He did not play badly, particularly in opposition to Bolivia and Peru, it is simply that the staff is the staff and he competes with different gamers. At that second I most well-liked to summon others.”

If Richarlison’s surgical procedure comes now then Brennan Johnson will proceed to begin video games as he may in any other case. The Wales worldwide once more impressed earlier than he was sacrificed following Romero’s pink card.

The deadline day signing from Nottingham Forest had arrange Son for a disallowed effort with one in all quite a lot of thrilling runs down the left at Reece James. Who is aware of how far more harm he might have completed had Romero stored his head?

There can also be Bryan Gil trying to impress in addition to younger Argentine Alejo Veliz, whereas Jamie Donley is champing on the bit to be given the call-up once more from the U21s in a season that has introduced a white-hot string of performances with six targets and 9 assists in 9 matches within the Premier League 2 and EFL Trophy alone.

Whatever comes subsequent, Postecoglou will likely be pragmatic about it and will at all times look to play his model of soccer. He will even not be petrified of giving younger gamers their probability if he deems them one of the best accessible match for his system.

The basis already constructed has satisfied the Tottenham followers of what’s forward whatever the squad wobbles that lie within the coming weeks.

Spurs’ captain Son stated on social media on Tuesday morning: “Your support last night was incredible. We fed so much off your energy and atmosphere in the stadium. We made mistakes as a team, put ourselves in a tricky position. But hey, we will learn from these mistakes, we will bounce back, and we will be stronger together. I wake up this morning proud of the boys, proud of you the supporters, and excited to get straight back to work.”

Son has excessive hopes for Postecoglou and what he’ll convey to the staff this season and within the years to come back.

“At this stage of my career I thought I wouldn’t learn new things but as soon as Ange arrived at the club I realised I’m still a student,” the skipper stated in an interview with the membership’s matchday programme. “I’m 31, I do know my life and have been by way of some powerful instances however he has already had a large affect on me as a participant and as a human being.

“He’s amazing because he gives so much advice to me as a footballer but also in life, which is sometimes not as easy. He has so much of an influence on the players and we’re so happy to have him.”

He added: “I think he’s really special. It’s been a fantastic journey for him and for us so far, the way he speaks during his pre-match team talks are incredible. It makes me feel like my heart is bouncing and feel like I want to go out there and give my all for him and this club, so this has made a huge difference,” stated the skipper.

“He’s the kind of supervisor that’s at all times on the lookout for methods to enhance and the best way he approaches every sport and his model of play is ideal for our group of gamers. We have a transparent understanding of what he needs which is vital for the staff and I feel he is doing a improbable job.


“You can see it around the training ground and in the stadium that the players are playing with a confidence and happiness and are believing that we can do something special.”

Monday night time was a blow, Tottenham’s unbeaten document coming to an finish within the 11th sport and in a chaotic method that left wreckage in its wake.

However, in Postecoglou they’ve a head coach who is not going to allow them to wallow or fear. It will likely be enterprise as typical and he may have full religion that his system will nonetheless enable them to shine no matter who performs inside it. They don’t have any purpose to doubt him.
