Thanks, I couldn't tell if he was having a go at people for breaking lockdown or celebrating them doing so, and Google Translate didn't help.

Thanks Ger Regan - yep, that's the party. Really controversial for many in Spain, and this organising a demo which broke the lockdown (which Pepe was supporting in one of his latest tweets) is arguably a lot less controversial than other stuff they're going on about. They want to stop equal rights (e.g. stop gay marriage, which has been legal there for about 15 years) and also want to get rid of a law supporting women who suffer from domestic violence - difficult to overstate how much of a problem domestic violence is in Spain.

I say 'controversial for many', but of course there are thousands and thousands (probably millions) who don't consider it controversial, and Pepe's entitled to his opinion. He doesn't need to broadcast it so blatantly though. It p1sses me off to see him doing that on the same page where there's a pic of him wearing a villa top. If Jack or someone had tweeted the kind of support Pepe's done for a leader of a party like Vox in Britain he'd have been slapped down by everyone. But Pepe seems to have got away with it because it's all in Spanish.

Tyrone tweeted something vaguely political the other day you could argue, but that has got nothing on the people Pepe's supporting. He gives out a really dodgy vibe to me by doing so.

Not too keen on all the scouse love either!!

Games he played:

Brighton-Arguably could've done better for the goal but made really good late save to get us the point.

Watford- Pretty good. Made a key double save at 1-0 down.

Bournemouth- At fault for one of the goals. We were terrible for an hour anyway.

Spurs- MOTM.

Southampton- one reckless charge outside his box that got a yellow. Out of position for second but we needed a goal so had no issue with him going up for the corner.

Leicester- O.k not arguing this one!

It's pretty rare you get the first two keepers injured at same time (last time it happened we got in Gabor Kiraly of course) so had no issue with the club getting him in unlike Drinkwater given his pedigree.

so to sum up 2 good games  and 4 dodgy ones ... as for sending him up when we needed  goal at Soton his record is 623 league apps  0 goals
 
Premier league alone its  291 apps 0 goals and 4 assists  1 own goal.... clutching at straws at bit

Any player that doesnt have a future with us post summer should not be playing in our survival bid. I have to question how much Reina actually gives a toss. Were probably a shop window for him to get a few year deal at someone in the summer.

Stick to Nyland

Well yes, but surely if heís wanting to put himself in the shop window heís going to be motivated to play well?

Shouldnít his own self respect, and the fact heís being paid to do a job, be the only motivation he requires to play well?

I just prefer Nylandís version of trying to his. Heís come back mentally and physically stronger and he has a career in front of him not behind him.

In his first few games Reina did bring a calmness to the defence and his distribution brought another dimension to our game.  I initially thought he was a wasted signing but the Watford game convinced me it was shrewd business.  But as others have said, he then went downhill pretty quickly.

For me Nyland has been excellent most times he played this season - he kept a fantastic attitude despite expensive keepers being bought to play ahead of him.  I really like him and would be happy for us to see out the season with him as our No 1.

Extra mention for the (indirect) assist against Watford. Might seem obvious but it takes a confident, experienced keeper to wave everyone up into the opponent's box for a last minute effort. Not sure Nyland for example, would have done the same.

Vox featured heavily in Ed Balls' mini series about the rise of populism across Europe. They're typical right wing everymen, trying to be all things to anyone with a grievance - whether it's campaigning for bull fighting or a perceived threat to Flamenco dancing. It's the same old story - it's the "others" fault. Them over there, trying to come over here and take your heritage away. The usual crap.

Every team would send up a keeper in that situation and pretty much all of them have never scored a goal either so not sure what your point is.

It's more the confusion they cause can create space and potentially a goal.

The point is  as far as Reina is concerned  it never works so it was /is  futile.
