    The FA have decided to charge Hamza Chowdhury of Leicester for a tweet he made when he was 15.

    Tweets about not being sorry for people who commit suicide are obviously idiotic, but isn't this the equivalent of charging adults for something they said in the playground when at school? I'm sure many of us said stupid things we would cringe at when we were 15.

    Nothing good comes of Twitter. I'm going to advise my kid to stay away from it!

    Andre Gray suffered the same fate when at Burnley over some homophobic tweets from his Pre-Luton days.

    The only people who use Twitter these days are Trump & the Brits.

    I suspect it is fading away.

    The FA should have charged him for playing for L*t*n.

    Bournemouth getting another player sent off ?

    Son raises his hands but not that much in it ..

    As much as I dislike Muff's regular antics, I thought it looked a red tbh, it was very aggressive from Son - "excessive force" for sure, if that rule can also be applied to pushes.

    On another point, Muff's young keeper looks a bit special.

    Agree on both counts. Eric Dier escaped a clear red as well. Dier really is far far below the standard Spurs need (and indeed England)

    Craig Pawson loves debatable red card but I’d say Son’s was more deserved than Deeney’s.

    haha - ridiculous red for Foyth now! Very harsh from Pawson. Spurs down to 9 now.

    Red all day long. Studs up right at knee level. I’m all for banging the Bournemouth diving drum but until the Son sending off they’d been properly done by piss poor decisions (1 red and deffo pen).

    I think both were right but probably helped by the reaction of the opposition but.

    Mind you they all do it ..

    And Dier was lucky plus Bournemouth for once were denied a penalty.

    Dirty dirty Muff - goading Spurs players in to making knee high, studs up sliding tackles

    I think it was harsh. I do agree ref has been poor both for and against both teams today though.

    Not a red imo. Hardly dangerous and was nowhere near his face.

    Good old Muff Divers at it again!

    Alan Smith effectively calling Lerma a cheat.

    Bournemouth playing like a team not that fussed to try and win despite having 2 extra men .

    Poor poor performance by Bournemouth so far against 9 men. It looks like they don’t have a clue how to take advantage.

    Good effort from Spurs though - most teams get blown away the rare occasion they are down to 9 men for an entire half.

    How ironic to score from a corner when having a 2 man advantage makes little difference.

    Very Spurs like though .

    Work hard then give away a cheap goal from a set play .

    Will Rafa B do his old club a favour ?

    Good run and head from Ake. Feel sorry for Spurs. A little bit.

    Not sure I'd go that far. Can't stand Howe though.

    We tend to get blown away when we are down to 11 men on the pitch lately.

    Mitrovic just missed a good chance for Flam in the second half at Molineux.

    Also wondering if there’s a minimum weight requirement for those wearing wrestling masks in the crowd? Seems to be somewhere in the 20st region.

    Wolves doing their usual against a bottom side ?

    EDIT: Just gone 1 up.

    West Ham found their home at last ..

    Fulham their own worst enemies as always. Just giving Wolves the ball back. Although it was a good finish by Dendonker. Ah well, I actually think they’ll struggle to juggle Europa and second season syndrome next year so they can crack on. Will be fun to watch.

    Of course they will. Spending £20m on one player clearly shows that. They won't reinforce at all.
     
  29. UEA_Hornet

    I dunno GD. First they’ve got to hold on to what they’ve got. Jota, Boly and Neves might be thinking they’ve peaked with Wolves already. Plus whatever wheeling and dealing Mendes has in mind for his other clients. And then they’ve still got to bring in players to strengthen without ruining squad harmony. It’s fun as a tight knit squad of 19 or whatever. Let’s see how Nuno can juggle more players wanting some pitch time. I can’t them them replicating their form against the top 6 next season either. It’s freakish.

    Or they are a very decent side with a decent coach, good players who give a **** and totally deserve 7th place.

    We can bitter and twisted all we want about them and their fans but we lorded it over them when we won the right to be dicked by Man City in the FA Cup Final.

    Their consolation, a deserved trip to Europe and the continued development of their team.

    Ours? A record FA Cup final defeat and the mass exodus of any above average talent we have.

    Gee, I'd hate to be them.

    I’m neither bitter nor twisted. They clearly deserve 7th and have some class players. And they’ve done it hard way arguably, winning against the top teams while throwing away opportunities against the dumpers near the bottom.

    But it’s a fact they’ve done it with as few players as is possible, good fortune with injuries and have now won the right to start their season in July. Apparently they’re off to play the Asia Cup immediately beforehand too. It’ll be interesting to see how that pans out in when they’re going into what is always a tough season second time around in the PL. I’m not really comparing it to our fate...

    Aren't the foxes still in with a chance of 7th?

    Yes - if they beat Man City and Chelsea...
