Here’s just a few of the top points made by one or two of the 300 odd members.

Come and join us!

Neil Abrey Allardyce email “We made two errors for two of Man City’s goals – they have scored 19 goals and conceded one to get to the final, which shows you the quality of their team, but I was a little disappointed with the way we conceded the goals.” what he forgot to mention that 9 of them were against us!

Mick Rumford im not usualy that into stats but i made a point of counting how many times we were caught in possession tonight. when dopey diame was caught for citys 3rd goal, i made that the 21st time. that seems way to high to me. these players would have been doing basic two touch pass and move excercises from the age of 11, too many poor touches head down no awareness, and lack of movement to make yourself a paas option. i disagree with most on the rav ratings. he runs to many dead ends to me, i know he often lacks support, but he seems to think he can recreate his spuds goal whenever he picks the ball up deep.

Steve Jackson Can someone please tell me does big Sam actually write that rubbish the club email out?

Peter Dosad They may have sold 14k+ tickets but never that many in the ground. I would be surprised in it was 10k and 2k were Mancs. Awful night in all respects.

Michael Miller Everton must be the perfect example – they’ve got no money but still are a bloody good team with young players coming through, brilliant senior pros and fantastic loan signings – whoever is doing their Recruiting is doing a brilliant job!

Gary Knight What a difference a year makes happy to see Diame go think his heart not in it, Morrison might cause uproar if he was allowed to go and I think he’ll stay; more interested in will we actually bring someone in.

William Field I would get rid of Sam now and then sell Morrison and Diame for starters, let the manager try and get rid of who he wants and get in what he needs. The big problem now with it all is that there is so little time left of the window though. Cant see a new manager coming in quickly enough to have the chance to wheel and deal.
