    They're scapegoats Dan. I already know what I'm gonna read before I read it, when it comes to certain players.

    I tend to agree, it was Doherty not long ago, he was labelled with the awful footballer tag, that's gone away now, I'd like to see the same with Coady as I don't believe he's that bad.

    Absolutely. It's beyond me how anybody can get excited about bang average championship players. I'd include Doherty in there too, only he does have decent technical ability, he's just a very poor defender.
    Nothing to see here...... can't offend sensitive souls.

    With Doherty I'm starting to think it's mainly his attitude. The key difference at the moment is he is closing the winger down far quicker and being more pro active, whereas before he would just let them cross the ball in, leading to a lot of goals conceded. I hope he can continue these improvements but we will see.

    I don't get why we have to like or aren't allowed to criticise Coady and Edwards for having poor technical ability? When they play well, people will say. But the majority of the time they just run around aimlessly and hardly influence the game.

    I guess some of us who know fuck all about the game are suckers for a crap player.

    I think Stu's point is more a certain players get given a shit rating regardless of their performance on the day.

    I'm saying people will slate them regardless of how they played. Scapegoating.

    I think my support for perceived poor players stems from when I was a kid, we had a player called John Holsgrove who was seen as the likes of Edwards, Coady and Docherty are seen now.
    I was returning from an away game (late sixties) I was only about 14, coach stopped at the services on the Motorway and the Team were also there and I had a good chat with him telling him that 'I don't think you're that bad' as you do when you're a kid.
    Anyway, that support for the frowned upon has stayed with me all my life.
