Why is Anoutavic (spelling) not a popular player, looks a very handy hold up player. He can play wide to can't he? I remember saying a few seasons ago I'd happily swap him for Chadli and I got a lot of hate. He was quite funny post match too.

He's always been very inconsistent. And when he has a bad game it's a real stinker of a performance.

He's woefully inconsistent and seems to have a very high opinion of himself despite not really having achieved much.

I think we can close the poll on most pointless use of an asinine skill award...

Firminho scoring a look the other way goal against West Ham into an open goal :banghead::oops::ROFLMAO::poop: (did he want to fool some into thinking he was going to clear the ball:confused:)

It's such a poor skill, the skill favoured by those with little else (my one dislike about Lamela's game who doesn't need to do it) but it can serve a purpose if the defender is clearly looking at your eyes to see what you're going to do, but I very rarely see it used that way.

I even saw it used at goals where the guy turned towards the wall he was up against (like I thought he was going to pass to the wall a foot away from him :rolleyes:) in jest I walked into the wall and fell over laughing...

I have seen Graham Roberts on Twitter criticising Lineker for continuously digging out Alli but doesn't mention stuff
like Monreal and Wilshere diving today at the CC final.

When are we going to see a hatchet job on any other player for diving? Vardy does it every week and it's either ignored or celebrated.

I want to know why they didn't talk about the blatent penalty on Davies in the 1st half. If we'd been given that I'm convinced we'd have gone on to win by at least 3 goals.

Watching MOTD back this morning... What a shock, no discussion about Son being wrestled to the floor Rugby style for a blatant pen...
