In the side to side movement and the crab turn, yep. But he doesn't look the same sort of tenacious player that Parker was. Looks handy though.

Personally I haven't, but I would have thought that would have been picked up by the FA's recent abuse investigation....

See ya later Fegs. If he's really the second highest paid player in the squad, he's gone.

They surely can't stand to watch him tackle himself for much longer.

No injuries. Controlled the game. Passed the ball about quite well. Learned a bit more about the fitness of the players. Job done really.

On to the next one.

Sums up his whole career for us, making something out of nothing for the opposition. His confidence is absolutely shot.

Good run out for everybody today, then?

First half-impressed by Burke and Holland. Second half impressed by Cullen and Rice.Feghouli and Snodgrass equally useless. Snodgrass lacking in skill, Feghouli lacking in brain power.

But Feghouli came good, didn't you hear :lol:

Absolute toilet... as was Snodgrass

Thing is, yes it's only a friendly... our first game of preseason etc... but if you can't control a football or pass one then there is a problem.

The control of a few of the youngsters put those two to shame!

I noticed that too when I just turned over at the arse end of a stream. It was probably the only reason they were all seen chasing him during the game. Everybody knows he's a big time player and he ****ing plays for us*. :crest:

31 years ago we didn't win a single pre-season match, yet finished 3rd in the old First Division. Thought I had better get that one in first, because somebody else is gonna post it within a couple of weeks

That almost made me completely lose it at the office. Holding my much shut and trying desperately not to attract attention.

Spat my tea on the keyboard kind of moment. Hilarious.

Fernandes looked like he put on a bit of size. Did a good job winning the ball back.

Too late to cancel the Hart loan and sign the Graz keeper from the first half?
