Don’t understand the problem with this thread, is it a tad obsessive? Yes. But is it to the point anyone is actively encouraging people to direct abuse coming anyone’s way? Absolutely not. Perfectly entitled to criticise someone.

Really don’t understand why some people are incapable of understanding criticism is ok. If they think this is bad then they simply haven’t been on the internet for very long. I see far worse stuff on twitter than I do on here

Abso-farking-lutely agree with this 100 and 10%

The likes of Pippa, Nath, LordC0cks are some of the more annoying types. It was Nath and his "crew" that started the whole Jlow is a twat campaign and directed insults and abuse towards him on Twitter.

On top of that you have about 100 other whiney idiots - most of whom are 18 - all saying you're a "virgin" or tinpot for not standing at away games.

In comparison this forum is absolutely brilliant. Most probably see some of the inappropriate stuff and assume you're all racist, homophobic, rude tw@ts :? but in reality there's some good "banter" (hate that word) and decent conversations.

There's a huge difference between honest criticism and contrariness for the sake of it and I don't think the players would have a problem with honest criticism.

No just baffled as to why some think "virgin" is an insult. I've also heard people call each other "strings".

Spin off thread... good insults. It appears you can use any random object or thing as a term of abuse.

You Pepe are a bloody prittstick

My favourite thing I’ve seen on Twitter is someone call another user a “salad”. As an insult.

Might start using that from now on.

I have frequently used various vegetables and food items as an insult (including vegetable - though that does have a slightly harsher and more politically incorrect connotation). Favourites include; carrot, courgette, potato, sandwich... etc

Most effective following; “you fcuking...”, “you absolute...”, “you utter...”.

I like salad. (The insult)

Factually incorrect.

He’s been scrap metal for 3 months now.

Yes the joke is dated. I couldn't think of another prominent wheelchair user.

From a Twitter user about the Eastleigh friendly, apparently let down by his sources:
Hoping to get a chat with Nigel Gibbs and a player shortly. Overall it was a disappointing display by the Royals. Decent spell in the second-half but should have held on to the point. Lacked urgency/creativity going forward for most of the game. Work to be done.

Might that just be his version of calling him a salad and therefore be a demeaning term..?

Joey van den Berg plays football like a banana, slipping on banana skins.
