  1. Took a matter of seconds, Val. I have the Cheese-eating Surrender-Monkey App. It collates all posts that display a lack of intestinal fortitude and generates a suitably pithy comment for me to approve before posting. (I had to limit the selection number as there were so many it would have taken up an entire page) And I thought we might lose too. The difference is that neither of us, nor many other sensible posters, went into full overblown Private Fraser mode.

    Eden Hazard

    No, don't you know, Hazard has got no "end product", according to some footballing genius in here a little while ago, and should be sold as soon as we can. Seriously, yes Hazard and Giroud do play well together, but Giroud doesn't have what we need three times a week. But actually, my post was about that sad poster who only ever turns up here when we have a baddish patch and then whines and moans. We never see him/her posting when we are doing well, not do we ever see him/her posting anything positive.

    Christian Pulisic

    That's because there are only 12 players qualified for the US Soccer team. Case of necessity, really.

    That wasn't the only lie I told you that night

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    You're arguing with an expert there, mate. Be careful, he'll be quoting one of Stan Collymore's eruditions at you next.

    Willian

    If you say so, @Scott Harris. I disagree, I see it all the time, the same old cut-and-paste criticisms posted, regardless of how Willian is ACTUALLY playing, by the same set of usual suspects. It's not just Willian, you know that there are people who don't like Alonso, some who don't like Kovacic, quite a few who have turned on Jorginho, some trolling fool who wants us to sell Kante, and spots every small mistake he makes and one special idiot who appears to have a personal dislike of Dave. It was always thus, Mikel had his haters who trotted out the same old sideways and backwards bollocks every match, Malouda dropped out of fashion, Ivanovich got turned on pretty quickly. I thought it was just people seeing things differently to me for the most part, but a recent match where some twat was posting anti-Willian posts within a minute or so of him coming onto the pitch showed me that that prick at least was just waiting to post such tripe. However, when you say " he has been playing like sh*t for a long time now." you are applying your own personal bias. It was only two or three matches ago that he received a standing ovation from the entire crowd when he was substituted. As I said previously, I don't hear the Willian scapegoating at the Bridge, I only ever see it in here. And, also as I have said in here on many occasions, Willian is far from being ideal and the best player in the squad, but he is nowhere near as bad as a lot of people in here have convinced themselves that he is. So, just looking for a little bit of rationality and balance, really. A rare commodity amongst football fans, I know, but what can you expect from an old peace-loving hippy like me?

    fair enough. I can't argue with that, mate.

    Eden Hazard

    Am I the only one who thinks it's very dubious that you haven't posted a thing while we were playing well and doing well in the league and then you turn up after a couple of defeats and start posting like a lunatic all over the place?

    Good to see we still have SOME die-hard supporters.

    Willian

    Doesn't fit the narrative of the day, though, does it?

    There you go, fixed your typo for you.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    You know that you are just saying that to fit in with the lads. We both know that you voted for Willian in the Player of the Year vote every season he's been here.

    To be honest, @Nibs I didn't see the match last night, but from everything posted by people I respect in here, I would agree. My trouble is with the people who constantly moan about Willian (or some other players) even when he DOESN'T play poorly, just because he is their scapegoat of choice.
