Hopefully this idiot doesn't play for us ever again.  I'd rather invest the time into getting Nyland ready for a long, hard season in the Championship.

After tonight, I hope the FA/PL look into players betting on games. I can't think of any other reason for his performance tonight.

Agreed 100%, send him back. Nyland has some potential and worse case scenario we might be able to sell him for a few quid. This pot bellied clown made 5 league appearances in the last two seasons at Milan. Is it any surprise his decision making is miles off.

He played well for us at the start and I could see the logic in the signing (given I constantly call for more proven players to be signed I'd look a bit of a hypocrite)

Difficult to argue he isn't becoming a liability now though.

Would be amazed if he starts on Saturday.

He rivals Drinkwater in the fitness stakes.  He's got a right belly on him.

Two games on the trot now he has been awful, Nyland has to start the next game.

I wouldn't even have him in the squad for the last run of games.  Nyland first choice, Sarkic as back up.  Build for the future, and don't think that having a flabby, once decent keeper is going to help, because it plainly isn't.

I'm with you Risso. Drop him and play Nyland.

That has to be the last we see of the bald clown. Against Spuds you could see why we brought him in, but he's turned to utter shit just like so many before him with our excellent coaching.

Am I right in saying Reina has won one game since he's been here and kept no clean sheets?

In the Jan window I didn't want us to waste a loan spot and wages on him - I wanted us to stick with Nyland who was in good form.  But in fairness he started excellently and I admitted I was wrong - he brought a real assurance and great distribution to the team.

Now?  I think I was right and wrong thinking I was wrong.

It was a cock up but lets not go overboard, he's been pretty good overall. That said, i see no reason why we shouldn't play Nyland instead, it's possible he could be our number 1 next season if we go down.

He's cost us points since he arrived. Looks laboured for every goal conceded
