I remember when Mings signed on loan and some people weren't exactly enthusiastic about it.He turned out shit didn't he.
Drinkwater may well be crap but give him more than one game against one of the best teams in the world before you want to fuck him off.

Not remotely comparable. No evidence of Mings being a piss head at Bournemouth. Mings may have lacked a little match sharpness when he first came but clearly kept himself in shape and fit. Drinkwater evidently hasn't and as a result is a national laughing stock after his debut.

National laughing stock. Jesus Christ. You're talking about a country that has Boris Johnson as its prime minister. I think Danny Drinkwater can rest easily for a good few years before it gets to that.

At least Boris "gets his tackle in" - according to Carrie

You've misread my post.I wasn't comparing them as players or people, just showing the similar reaction to when both were signed on loan.Mings has been a good signing, Drinkwater may well turn out to be the opposite, nobody knows at this time.Except maybe you and some others seemingly.

His debut was crap but in no way is he a national laughing stock.

From what I heard and read I think there was a great deal of sympathy for him nationally because he'd been chucked into a very difficult situation thst he was totally unprepared for.

Big question is, why didn't Sean Dyche play him?

Can you take Johnson's incompetence to the politics thread please?

Wasn't Stephen Ireland serial winner of Fans' Player of the Year at Citeh?  Before they turned into a big pile of money and were everybody's second favourite team.

He was.  And so was Richard Dunne.  Citeh fans among my acquaintances would always say that I was out of order when I expressed the opinion that they'd palmed us off with a show pony and a carthorse, whilst simultaneously luxuriating in the talent that their oil money was now buying meaning the likes of the Ireland and Dunne being deemed as not good enough.
