    Orrible Denis Wise but interesting that Brighton were A grade.

    • mentalman

      How is it intetesting

      • Philippines

        Because that places them with the Manc teams, Liverpool, Chelsea, etc. I would have said B at most.

        • mentalman

          Surely Brighton deserve to be up there with them having convincingly outplayed a top 6 team and making a giant step towards safety

  • TheNutJob

    Liverpool game was pathetic, we may as well of had a go at them because like City you know sooner or later they`ll score. these negative tactics are starting to wind me up but i`m waiting to see what happens against the Saints. over at the ronnie Rafa says we`ll attack Southampton, we`ll have to wait & see

    I loved it when he got sent off at St James’s, he had to walk the width of the pitch with his song ringing in his ears. It was plain to see.

    • Coach Clagnut

      He’s definitely smaller than you or me.

    • Geordiegiants

      It was class, of course it would be very very wrong of us to sing that now. ❄️

    I’d give him an F for epic fail with what he’s got on his head? Is he using the same barber as Donald Trump like? Looks like a deed moggy!!

    • Geordiegiants
