    Get out of here with that nonsense. Those were abysmal conditions, and the players turned up. Its hard to do much when the field has puddles, the ball is heavy, and its cold and wet.

    I think he already has like Burnley at home. The frustrating thing is there were more than enough fans who saw Tripps for what he is which is great offensively but he doesn’t have the engine or pace to get up and down to be a genuine top level RB especially in a back 4. I loved having him as a squad player as about as good as you can get for a back up but I don’t think he is good enough to be starting as many games as he has exceptional game against Madrid apart

    Aurier is also v raw but had the tools to be top bracket if it all clicks concentration wise and don’t see how we will ever know if KWP can make the step up if we don’t give him minutes but he was motm in the only game he’s played!

    There was an example with Davies too. Except Davies used his body and intelligence to recover, whereas Trippier was unable to recover or he recovered but didn't get close enough to the winger to stop him from crossing/passing. Walker was a completely different level to him and I'm confident Aurier will be too. I have praised Trip in the past, unfortunately he just isn't quite at it defensively.

    The ball hitting the post off Vertonghen's back isn't a decision Souness.

    Tough grind but a good 3 points.

    Started well but as the pitch deteriorated, so did we. Very fortunate not to concede. Great to see Vic back. Gives us a lot of flexibility.

    Worried about our full backs bar Aurier with Rose injured. Tripper has regressed from last season and Davies is nowhere near his early season form.

    The heavy conditions will take it out of us, so Poch will need to rotate for West Ham.

    I thought it was terrible refereeing that he didn't get a yellow until the 80th min. Foul after foul after foul and nothing given.

    You'd think so but I think the publicity outweighs the funbags. Granted you wouldn't get many of her norks in a fire bucket but size is all they got going for them. After many years research, including countless hours fast forwarding and pausing ummm.gif I came (literally) to the conclusion that Hayley has the finest ta-ta's on the firm and whatshername, Kirsty, runs her a very close second.

    Not all players need minutes to step up, sometimes it just clicks for them i.e Winks.

    Anyone remember a certain Man U striker scoring about 8 off side goals that all stood in the first 15 ish games at start of last season and all you heard from Sky was 'was a great finish though.'
    Tossers.

    Make a few huge tackles in the time he was on and also stopped them equalising at 1-0 we will now realise just how good he is and how much we’ve missed him. In our best CI he starts every time.
