    Double post due to network dropping as I posted the first one.

    At least I got the right statement in though ;)

    Match stats
    Shots us 18 to them 2
    On target 6 to 0
    Goals 3 to 0

    Aye we snatched a lucky win against them.

    Davies was a virtual spectator as the defence in front of him contained them. After the first 20 mins they never looked like scoring

    We should have had more but some good saves, near misses and wrong choices for the final ball kept the score down.

    I’d be annoyed if I was their keeper singled out for public criticism.

    I don't find it particularly classy when a manager singles out one or two players, unless they've done something ridiculous and got sent off.

    Mourinho was increasingly doing this and I fail to see how it boosts motivation or morale.

    Absolute tosh it was good play. So good that Colin Murray highlighted it as team goal of the day. If you watch that again and say that a one touch pass and move with sublime back heel flick like that was poor defending you don’t understand football.

    It's not a question of right or wrong. Those kind of comments should be kept for the changing room and next week's training pitch.

    Their keeper was getting annoyed enough as it is

    He could easily have been blaming defensive frailties for 5 or 6 goals.

    Bradford were exactly the same as when we played them at their place. They huffed and puffed but never really looked like winning the game.

    They've been on a decent run and really fancied it yesterday, hence why so many fans came over, but he and the fans were probably taken aback by the gulf between the sides.

    They were walloped yesterday, and it could have been a hell of a lot worse for them if we had been a bit more clinical.

    When you don't force a single save in 90 minutes, blaming your defence is a bit out of order. Maybe he just came hoping for a 0 0 draw?

    I know, we were so poor scoring those goals, they should have been disallowed

    Can’t agree with that comment about the second goal. It was outstanding- ‘ Barcalona like’. No, even better than that, ‘ Wednesday like’.

    As for Hopkin’s comments. They can be summed up in five words. Hopkin, Bowyer, Leeds, no class.

    Next.

    When your mams Cher you need to distract as much as possible to mask your failings.
