Its not banter though is it. I mentioned something you are known for doing, flipping your opinion to suit, claiming you said or never said something so you don't look stupid. I remember Manwell Pablo bringing up numerous posts you made about Roy Hodgsons England tenure, only to go and say the opposite and claim its what you thought all along. I'm not casting aspersions on you, I'm not making things up, claiming you're something you're not, these are known traits of yours by anyone regular user of the forum.

 

You are not just making assumptions about my posting style on here, you are making them about my whole way of life, and that goes much further than "banter" on a football forum.

 

Now before you start casting aspersions on the way I live, and how sad and lonely you imagine my life is (or actually you are convinced my life is) may I remind you, that you spend your spare time posting on a forum, and 70% of it is trolling and messing around. Now as your life is so much fuller and more interesting than mine I'm sure you'd have better things to do with your time than acting like a twat online, but apparently not :dunno:

You don’t like it, don’t give it...

So there’s no moral ground here for you to climb up on us there?

I said I imagine you as an anorak. That doesn’t mean you are does it. Whereas you seem to follow me around on here giving it the big un many times. That’s trolling my son

It was you who mentioned me this morning, not the other way round. Remember that...

I've barely intereracted with you on here in ages lol I don't follow you around at all.

 

I'm afraid I do have the moral high ground. My comments regarding you are factual, you know you do it and so does everyone else. I'm not making assumptions, I'm not posting to touch a nerve, I'm just saying what's true. If it touched a nerve I think that proves a point, that's you have to be seen as right, so try this opinion flipping to look intelligent.

 

You haven't touched a nerve with me, because it isn't true, but what I don't appreciate is people making assumptions about my life away from this forum with absolutely nothing to back that up only their own imagination. I'm not being mean to you for the sake of it, I'm calling you out for the ridiculousness of what you do, whereas as you making stuff up about me, now that is trolling.

 

Now I'll await your post on Saturday when Forfana gets rinced by Joelinton and you claim you said we should have been starting Amartey all along lol

People like @Facecloth take the forum far too seriously

I remember once taking our kid to Sheff Wednesday away and I was sat next to this real anorak of a bloke. During the game he kept fetching out his programme and marking down stats by the names of the players. He was pleasant enough, but clearly lived on his own and came to football on his own. He kind of lived for his football and his stats

I’ve wondered many times whether that bloke was Facecloth? Just how I’d imagine him. There’s many others the same though 

 

Was that @Thracianby any chance ?  :D

I can’t recollect anyone mentioning my name in a post for quite some time. There’s been plenty of replies and bants
You DO mention my name on purpose to get a reaction. You’ve done it before I recollect

The strange thing this morning was that you did as I was making it abundantly clear that I was too hasty yesterday re Brendan.
If that’s not humility I don’t know what is

I can’t remember how many times I’ve laughed at my own expense about ‘as I said all along’ and ‘as I told you before’. See the ‘if you were Brendan’ thread.

I’m laughing... I do it on purpose ffs especially over Clattermole and Jay Thomas

Thats why I say sometimes the forum is too serious.

I must have said Dan Amartey seems a lovely fella at least 10 times. But, I chuck in a few wind ups too to balance things up

Eg... FFS don’t start Big Dan... etc 

If you don’t find it funny, or worth reading, skip on past 

PS read your post back.. when the fook am I gonna say we should have started Amartey..😳

People need to stop going on about being 2nd and staying in the top 4.  We are only 4 points ahead of 9th and most teams have one or two games in hand

 

Agree. Saying we are second after a bad result is deflection tbh. . Especially as you said that a number of teams got a game or 2 in hand over us. 

 

Everton didn't play so we are second by default. United cam overtake us tonight.

Oh Col it became a joke because you did it so often. You're playing up to it because you've flipped opinion so often people don't know of you're serious or not. Doesn’t change the fact, that's what you do, switch your opinion to suit the narrative so you seem like you're always right. And I'm still not making stuff up about you am I, because it is what you do, and even if you are playing it for laughs now, its still true. On the other hand you've tried to to paint me as something I'm not in my actual life because I dared to call you out on your bullshit. I'll expect an apology in you reply.

There are some on here, thank the Lord, who know what I’m doing and when I’m doing it. You aren’t one of them BUT that doesn’t surprise me in the least

I’ll continue to add my own form of banter to the forum, interspersed with some serious posts.

eg the former... Big Dan should be playing volleyball, not football 

the latter... Big Dan is at best a decent squad CB

I’ll await the next time you call me out, whilst in the meantime imagining what type of anorak you might wear? I’m going for a blue duffle coat with Cambiasso on the back? JUST my imagination running riot again... I’m NOT saying you do...

I know when you're doing, that's why I don't, as you seem to think, call you out on it all the time. There are times whens its very obvious you've made one claim pre match and flipped it post match to make you seem clever.

 

I reference Hodgson again. You backed him on appointment and when it went wrong claimed you never thought he was any good. Now for all the obvious "banter" you try, there are many occasions where you try to claim you've always thought a certain way if that happens to make you look correct in the present.

 

And Big Dan was another one actually. Numerous posters saw his worth, thought he could be a useful squad member. I've actually been calling for him to be tried at CB for about 3.5 years. You wanted him gone, thought he was useless, had no place or future here. Now you're saying you always thought he was a centre back. I'm sorry that's not you bantering like you do with Cattermole etc, that's you pretending you said something other than the rather extreme opinion you held about him and his place here.

Absolutely bossed the first half. I was so impressed with Mendy and we absolutely should have been 2-0 up and probably easily managed the game from there. For me, it shows that Rodgers got the line-up and tactics spot on and had our reserve team playing some very composed and impressive stuff, against a Palace side that were dead set on not conceding and putting everyone behind the ball, which is never easy to play against. 

 

I think Rodgers must have been scratching his head as to why the same players came out and completely conceded the game to Palace 2nd half. I don't blame him for delaying making changes either, as Palace posed no real threat, although they had more of the ball. Tielemans was the right call to bring on pre-Palace goal, as we needed to regain composure in the middle,  however a lapse in concentration at the back and a shot that you'd expect Kasper to save, undid us. Rodgers then had to act, and did, with bringing on Vardy and that got us back into the game and we probably had the chances to win it too. 

 

So no complaints from me on team selection, as each change was explained and the thinking behind Vardy was also justified IMO. Just a shame that Iheanacho had a stinker and hopefully the best thing to come out of this game, will be a real push to sign a striker in January.

We are second.....its a fact......we might not be, that's a fact, but for now we are second.....Man City will probably beat Everton, Wolves likely to get  a point at United......we might still be second.....lost one in five.....played 3 of the top 5 in those games.....already beaten Spurs, Arsenal. Man City, Wolves, drawn with Man United......but it is impossible to argue with it, we are second.....

As disappointing as it is to have rejected yet another opportunity to consolidate in the top 4, perhaps we should instead consider that, following the defeat by Everton, most here would probably have been happy at the prospect of 5 points from Spurs, United and Palace.

For me, if we beat Newcastle then it is in fact a very good holiday period. Despite the frustration of the palace game

I agree with much of that but think he got the roles for Perez and Iheanacho wrong, the former was isolated out wide and Nacho needs a role playing off someone a little deeper, not leading upfront as such.

Loved the way we poured forward after equalising looking for a winner. That's  what good teams do. To say they were praying for the final whistle is an understatement 

Better teams do it when the chips are down and not just when they get bailed out by a bit of class from one player :D

 

Imagine we played with that tempo straight after Palace scored.

"ai ai caaaalm down lads!" as harry enfield used to say lol. Otherwise the admins will have to set up a virtual bike sheds so you can go behind it and clobber each other. Joking aside we're all passionate fans. It's healthy that we're getting riled up over a disappointing draw while still 2nd in the table and strong in Europe. but things can change in a heart beat and none of us want to get off this ride. Its brilliant and we want more success - nothing wrong in that. Rogers and players will learn to take it - call it tough love. Let's respect each other's opinions and agree to disagree without getting personal. :chant:

Shame Under wasn't fit, as I think he would have been amazing on the right and I think would have given us that extra spark we needed in the 2nd half. 

 

Agree on Perez. He should only be put out wide if we don't have an alternative (not Gray!) He is so much stronger in the centre. If we don't sign a striker to replace Iheanacho next month, then perhaps as you suggested, Iheanacho behind Perez, would be a better alternative, when we are missing Vardy. New signing would be best option IMO though.

I made the mistake of looking at their social media profiles about 4 years ago. 
I didn’t need to see anymore to conclude my opinion was bang on and unless they have both had a personality transplant,I very much doubt there would be much of a marked change. 

If we judged everyone by their social media profiles we’d all be total self indulged willy pullers

As a manager you play in a certain way and pick your team. You hope your team can control the game, while creating chances and limiting your opponents.

Football fortunatly carries an element of luck, without it, it would be dull and predictable with the best team winning all the time.

Yesterdays team was perfectly good enough to have won comfortably, we missed chances and they scored from a position 9 out of 10 times you won't.

 

We're not perfect but not too bad either, I would have hoped we would have created more with the overall play we had.

I can't help but watch Villa and think Grealish is exactly what we're missing at the moment.
