  • Poor game to be honest, We could have had 3 pens tho. You came to shut up shop, no shots on target, your supporters were loud tho. Good luck with the rest of the year.

  • p.s. you need to get andy reid in the gym, he fell over once, and was stranded like a turtle on it’s back! Looks to be carrying too much weight to be a prem player.

  • it was clearly a penalty I think. When we had Bardsley on loan his tackling and covering were excellent, his problem was he couldn’t cross a ball for s**t! Don’t know if he’s like that up there??? Is it true you’ve taken on Brian Kidd??
