Mate I've been used to seeing us lose quite alot for nearly 50 years, so I can assure you it was tongue in cheek on my part.Shortshanks wrote: ↑Thu Oct 29, 2020 5:17 pmI've got no problem with anyone expressing their opinion however forcibly, it can make for some good banter. The reality is the warning signs were there against Spurs when Antonio apparently was taken off because he felt a twinge and not because of any master tactical change that some hastily thought was the case. As for Haller, no I doubt think he has been given much of a chance certainly none this year (although he was only on the pitch for 5 mins against a very good Wolves defence and scored ) and last year he was second top scorer I believe with very poor service. As for Antonio, who I've always liked btw, it wasn't because of him we stayed up as he played most of the season. It was a case of who didn't play against Chelsea that turned our fortunes around and made sure we didn't go down again. And for the record I've only moaned about the real problem we have had over the last few years and am not a buck passer like some. I notice plenty are aware and moan about exactly the same thing now. When you made that comment we were losing so you can hardly try and pass it off as "tongue in cheek". I'm not that gullible.Castiron wrote: ↑Tue Oct 27, 2020 4:02 pm
My get Moyes out comment was tongue in cheek, ie "Stay the fuck at home as we were winning".
Moyes wouldn't have been my first choice as manager, but do you know what, he's fucking earnt some respect, because of the performances that we've put in.
How many times I've sat and watched us roll over time and time again. 'We've got no bottle', ''Fucking cunts, hang your heads'. Get my drift?
Whether that lasts remains to be seen, but all the while we are putting a bit of pride back in the club, with no help from the cunts above, I will support Moyes and trust him to make the right decisions.
It's laughable, if you or any one else thinks that he picked Antonio when he wasn't fit.
If Antonio has declared himself fit and the physios have declared him fit, then he has to play him.
Haller had plenty of chances last season to make an impact, he didn't fucking take them.
Antonio took his chance, and we would have gone down without him and we would be bottom of the league now, of that I have no doubt.
Mind you, you'd still have something to moan about and have a dig if we were top I guess.
As for your Antonio not keeping us up comment, I think you need to watch the run in again, just to check who scored the goals for us to win the important games that got us the points to stay up.
I seem to remember Antonio was very influential in the Chelsea game also, indeed setting up the winner for Yarmalenko.
As I've said, Haller has had a lot of chances to stake a claim in the starting eleven, he hasn't taken them, so far. I'm not the only one to say this, he doesn't do enough for the team, Antonio does everything for the team.
