How is this allowed? Are there no basic requirements? Should the FA not lay a pitch in these situations?
I only knew it was shit because Adrian Durham was banging on about it on Talksport this afternoon . He was worried about the pitch causing serious injury to any of our England players putting them out of the world cup

Sissoko by a million miles. Llorente has a good touch and a bit of awareness about him. Sissoko is just a fucking travesty of a footballer.
You did see Llorente's misses, didn't you? You're the type of person who'd say a gynaecologist was a shit doctor because they couldn't manage a psychiatric patient properly.

A nice and straightforward win is what we needed from this. Can only hope that it won't impact Saturday too much!

Oh goody, I look forward to watching us play there from behind the sofa.

Job done, we're in the 5th round that's the main thing, a bit wasteful in front of goal and the scoreline didn't truly reflect the extent of our dominance, in much the same way as it was last week against Man Utd where the margin of victory should have also been greater. I thought it was an unnecessary risk bringing on Dele and Eriksen, fortunately it it didn't backfire and injuries were avoided, positives, Lamela had a very good game and the run outs for Rose and Toby will have done them no harm.

Newport got their payday which they deserved after giving us a scare at their place so everyone's happy, now bring on the NLD.

Good win but not looking forward to that pitch in Rochdale

This is the Rochdale pitch yesterday before the Millwall game

How the fuck are they allowed to host football matches on that pitch? No excuse for a League One side.

Always think for league teams they should have to play the match at the opposition's ground if the pitch hasn't been cared for properly.

Think we just saw part of a XI that would do nicely against bus parkers. Eriksen and Lamela in the MF with Wanyama holding could be the makings of some damn sexy combinations. Add Sonny, Harry, and Moura up top and it would be very hard to keep us out.
