    Sterling plays for Citeh, mate, and he missed an open goal from two yards out.

    Re Rochdale’s pitch, I work with a Rochdale fan who said it was being ripped up and relaid starting yesterday. Might save training on Blackpool beach to get acclimatised to the conditions.

    Sissoko is bloody rubbish though, let’s be honest.

    I know Sissoko is not everyone's cup of tea but do fans honestly believe MP picks a player in the starting line up who has no talent, can't play a role and contributes nothing to the team? The same used to be said of John Pratt and Vinny Samways in other eras.

    Guys behind me last night were laughing themselves silly every time Sissoko & Llorente touched the ball. It's like they'd rather them do something bad then good just so they can get a laugh out of it. Very toxic and really annoys me. Support your players you mugs!

    Let's be honest, I don't give a toss about your opinion. If he was bloody rubbish, Poch wouldn't pick him or include him in the squad. Why do you think that is?

    They're cockney wankers! These are the morons who get on Lamela's back.

    Poch has commented on the pitch, which looks dreadful. I think Levy should threaten to sue the FA in case of injury, but do it behind the scenes. The game should be played on a neutral ground.

    Good game all round. Glad to see players coming back form injuries. Newport played well and gave a great account of themselves. Really enjoyed seeing Pipe.... A full back that looks like he should be playing Rugby instead. :ROFLMAO:

    Anyway on we move to the next round... It never gets easier.

    COYS!

    You are a proper charmer, Sweetsman.

    Here’s some advice: if you don’t like reading other people’s opinions when they are tiny bit negative, instead of joining a discussion forum you may consider buying a note pad, writing all of your thoughts down, reading them back to yourself and wanking yourself into a stupor over just how fucking insightful you are.

    I don't think a pitch like that is going to cause injury it just screws up our passing possession game.

    It's just sand and mud, not concrete and clay.

    I used to love those type of pitches this time of the year if they had been rolled well.

    I wouldn't mind if they were a tiny bit negative, would I? It's the incessant drone of unremitting negativity towards some players that I object to, juxtaposed to the carte blanche given to others. For example, Wanyama takes a shot than ends up somewhere near the corner flag, and Sissoko does his usual airshot: both of them have a tendency to have poor shooting, but only one of them gets it in the neck. The same has happened with Lamela. This seems to be a relatively simple point to grasp, that we shouldn't target our own players for whatever prostate problems people are having, but it seems a mountain to climb for some of the UEFA coaches here. What's more is that you don't like it when I give some of your own medicine back. As you say, it is a forum, so if you give your opinion, I'll give you mine.
