SF Really has digressed as a poster this last 18 months or so, as has Leon. Don't get who has hurt them.

no, and why would you suggest I did?

It obv had no bearing on the result. Still not a bright thing to do.

Yet another reason to fold the internet

Yeah, player in celebrating happier times and having fondness for a previous club shocker.


but a couple of hours after a 4-0 home defeat, and when your previous club is a relegation rival?

painfully stupid thing to do really. Not that I think he'll get many more minutes at Bolton anyway

So?

One thing is not linked to the other. A player's history isn't wiped when they move clubs. It's no measure of his effort or dedication at his current club.

Football fans get precious about the pettiest of things.

For those who are interested or enjoy self flagellation, you can purchase this game for a fiver via Barnsley's iFollow tonight. Will need a VPN though.

Imagine choosing to do that over Liverpool v Roma or Derby v Cardiff.

Because it's a crucial match in our season, Mr Smith. Understandable.

Imagine wanting to watch an important game in our relegation battle that could either take us closer to danger or give us a MASSIVE chance of staying up over a game none of us fans really care about, and a game between the biggest chokers in our league vs the team with the pcuntiest manager.

Double D, we've been safe since we beat Burton away and you know it. Barnsley will draw tonight and it'll be a poor game.

Maybe go for a walk instead?

Why the bollocks would I pay 5£ to watch Nottingham Barnsley when I can watch 2 European heavy weights. We literally need a point against a shite Ipswich team to stay up. You lot are just worrying to keep the season dramatic, its over.

Which is exactly why its a stupid thing to do. If you want to pi$$ off your own fans, then yep go ahead and do it. If you don't want to keep them onside, then posting something like that is the way to go.

Would I care? Not particularly - but then a lot of people obviously do

A Bolton fan totted it all up and figured out that Jem has liked/tweeted 30+ tweets about Reading in the last week

It wouldn't really bother me, but it's understandable that some would get pissed off with a current player tweeting that much about a club they are in a relegation battle with

So if you think we are safe then why are we not safe? You realise we could still go down.
