“Without fans you can hear just how demanding Ampadu is. Old head on young shoulders”

“Ampadu has got something like 20 caps by the age of 20, that’s the future right there so much promise.”

“Ampadu is so good in the middle”

“Ampadu is so wasted at centre mid. Got motm away at spurs in the ucl while playing in a 3 but this burke prefers a 28 year old who couldn’t get a game with st pauli”

“Ampadu is class”

“Ampadu can spray a pass can’t he”

“Ampadu masterclass”

“Norrington-Davies put in a real solid display”

“In the 2 games Norrington-Davies has done well, although suited better in a 5 rather than a back 4”

“Norrington-Davies has played his heart out tonight”

“I like Norrington Davies a lot”

“Norrington-Davies has had a decent game. “

“Norrington-Davies looks like a really good prospect”

“Norrington-Davies has put a shift in”

” norri gton davies is a significant upgrade on neil taylor. When he gets his final ball in better.”

“I don’t rate Norrington-Davies at all. Andrew Hughes should be called up ahead of him”

“think he’s had a good game, maybe not fully ready for this level but definitely has potential”

“He’s been alright but he’s not at all ready yet.”

“Anyone else try redoing the Manics song with a new line up? Norrington-Davies doesn’t scan as well as Robson Kanu….”

“very good performances from Ampadu, Meopham, Ward”

“Ampadu is a rolls royce talent. Don’t ever doubt that”

“Ampadu with another solid display. Ireland never really offered much, but he held his position and always made himself an option. He’ll only get better the more he plays.”

“Ampadu excellent”

“Ampadu was everywhere tonight”

“Ampadu was quality”

“Ampadu>Rice”

“Seriously, how good a player is Ampadu? And the lad’s still basically a kid.”

“his was a mature performance. More disciplined, less showy”

“confident in possession, him and Allen will be a formidable partnership in the centre of the park. Cleaned up everything that came to him.”

“Ampadu and Morrell look a really good midfield partnership, promising signs there”

“Morrell and Ampadu isn’t a championship midfield never mind international quality.”

“Ampadu had yet another subdued game. Sound defensively, but offered nothing going forwards. “

“Think this is the most anonymous I’ve seen Ampadu play.”

“Ampadu just doesn’t know how to play the simple pass. “

“Ampadu is useless”

“not a stellar performance from RND, decision making leaves a lot to be desired and for a LWB his attacking isn’t great, lot of backwards passing. “

“I’m afraid RND wasn’t up to the task tonight”

“Finding Norrington-Davies so painful to watch”

“Any attack momentum stopped when Norrington-Davies got the ball, no pace and poor delivery”

“Norrington Davies not good enough”

“Norrington-Davies is not very good”

“Norrington Davies was struggling to really get forward as much as he needed to. “

“Norrington Davies was decent imo.”

“Yn wahanol i Malcom Allen, dim Norrington-Davies yw y problem efo Cymru heno. Ma Bales/James/Brooks i gyd wedi bod yn sal.”

Scotland Fans Views On Oli McBurnie

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 123465660_350473779386710_5108791475777493764_n-644x337.png

“Searching ‘McBurnie’ during a Scotland game is always a good reminder of how horrible a place social media can be.
You’d never guess that the nation is meant to be in a positive mood or that, you know, he’s actually a decent player (when you don’t launch the ball at his head).”

“Genuinely don’t think McBurnie could be blamed at all if he just packed it in. The flak he takes is nothing short of a disgrace.
Missed a few chances tonight, one gilt-edged, but he played quite well. You’d think he’d spat on Robert the Bruce’s grave the way some folk go on.”

“I like McBurnie . He did well today. He’s improving.”

“No fan of McBurnie but thought he worked very hard.”

“I still think McBurnie will end up having a good career with Scotland.
He really needs a goal soon.”

“I’d be delighted to see McBurnie get a goal. His effort deserves it”

“As soon as mcburnie gets that 1st goal. He’ll settle in and will be fine.”

“Calling it now, he’s scoring the winner against England next summer.”

“Thought McBurnie played ok and was a big part of how we created quite a lot of chances. Just needs a goal!”

“McBurnie is no were near as bad as people think and did ok and should have scored. He had three attempts at goal though which is three more than Dykes had against Serbia. I think a lot of people are missing the point of the strikers in the formation we play.”

“There is absolutely no question that McBurnie just doesn’t appear to have it, but some of the abuse he takes on here is ridiculous. Way over the top at a time when there should only be positive vibes.”

“Don’t want to go down the bashing McBurnie route (again!) but he is simply not good enough to play up top on his own for Scotland. Whatever level he plays at for his club, he’s not the right fit for this Scotland side.”

“Crazy thought here. Maybe people are saying McBurnie isn’t very good because he isn’t very good.”

“McBurnie for Scotland.
Played 14
Scored 0
Assisted 0
Minutes 657 (just over 7 full games)
Scotland have only scored 1 goal when McBurnie has been on the pitch.”

“I have really tried to be see what he brings. But I’m struggling. He is nowhere near international class.”

“lots of chances and not good enough. Wouldn’t shut the door, but would only give him another go in a friendly.”

“just don’t see it. He gets in to good positions , but its like his brain is too slow to figure out what he’s meant to do and far too often after a brilliant build up, the play just breaks down when it goes to him”

“He’s shown very little to nothing in any the games he’s played. He isn’t even a regular starter for his club.”

“Dykes for McBurnie and we would have won”

“As for McBurnie, and sorry if this is harsh, but I really never want to see him start a game for us again unless its against San Marino or Gibraltar. He’s fine to throw on if we are 2-0 up and to see the game out ; but he’s hopeless, and if we had Dykes starting, we may well have won that game. Whilst Griffiths didn’t have a great game, he did create two or three chances in his 20 minutes on the pitch, and is much better at holding up the ball.”

“I can’t see mcburnie lasting in the epl long term whereas other strikers who have come up from the championship will. He’s useless and the fact I continue to say he’s useless despite him playing epl shows I don’t always rate epl players.”

“It’s clear McBurnie isn’t good enough or a good fit for us”

“A guy who can’t control a ball is no use to us.”

“Time to say enough is enough re McBurnie”

“The McBurnie “experiment”, if you want to call it that, has well and truly failed. Dykes, Griffiths, Shankland and Nisbet have got to be ahead of him from now on.”

“The mcburnie experiment has been going on for over two and a half years now . I think March when we get to three years would be a good place and time to call it a day.”

“I’d think twice about passing to McBurnie but chance going for it myself. And that’s not a good place to be.”

“The only reason McBurnie is even remotely defended is because he supports rangers”

“I wouldn’t want Mcburnie anywhere near Ibrox”

“How the did McBurnie ever become a professional player? I dont think Ive ever seen a worse player.”

“He’s truly a dreadful player. No touch, no pace and can’t finish.”

“McBurnie is pure mince.Disgrace of a player.”

“Oil McBurnie more like Oli McDisgrace”

“Playing the utterly dreadful Mcburnie for 93 minutes is I’m afraid a step backward, good teams keep ruthlessly winning, that was amateurish playing that waste of space up front”

“If McBurnie was a dog you’d be thinking about taking him to the vets to get him put out of his misery”

“McBurnie = Possesses all the speed and agility of striking sloth!”

“if he fell in a barrel of tits he’d come out sucking his thumb”

“Was gonnae do a tweet about how shite mcburnie was but it seems everyone’s got it covered”

“mcburnie is worse than George Weahs cousin souness brought on at Southampton”

“McBurnie has gotta be the worst ever Scotland player..
20m ..for the love of God why”

“Surely mcburnie canny just keep getting selected cos someone was stupid enough to pay £20m for the donkey”

“People slagging off Marcus Rashford for spending that money on houses for his family should remember that Sheffield United spent that amount on Oli McBurnie.For the record: Oli McBurnie could have a Lisbon Lions tattoo on his neck, rosaries in his pocket and a Wolfe Tones CD in his car and I would still say he is in no way even remotely close to being an international striker.”

Nottingham Forest Fans Views On Luke Freeman

“Freeman has been extremely disappointing so far”

“Disapointed with Freeman,he hasn’t settled in”

“What does Freeman bring to the team? genuine question?”

“Been poor so far”

“On Freeman’s current form we are very much lacking a number 10”

“freeman not doing enough to start”

“Him and Blackett have been terrible signings”

“Freeman awful… Again”

“There are serious question marks over Freeman imo – he’s just a passenger”

“Freeman is having no impact on games or even involvement”

“freeman contributing nothing. “

“Terrible”

“Think we should get our money back for Freeman hopefully we’ve still got the receipt”

“I do think Freeman/Arter will come good but agreed nothing great so far. “

Hull City Fans Views On Regan Slater

“non existent so far”

“Slater deserves some game time”

“would love to see Regan Slater get some more game time, he’s put in some impressive performances when he’s been on the pitch.”

“Regan Slater must wonder what he’s got to do to get a start”

“Clearly coming off the bench and scoring and helping change the game isn’t enough”

“Slater brought energy, effort and tenacity to the midfield”

“Think he will start in the cup games”

Luton Town Fans Views On Rhys Norrington-Davies

“Looks a great prospect. Doesn’t look out of place in the Championship. Great defensively and going forward. Happy to have him. Would love to keep him but I’m sure he will go back and be a star for Sheffield United”

“Norrington Davies is the best player in The Championship”

“He’s outstanding”

“Outstanding again”

“Played well again”

“Excellent competitor and powerful”

“Norrington Davies needs to find some consistency”

Notts County Fans Views On Sam Graham

“Started well and then became sloppy with his distribution”

“Reminds me of Krystian Pearce when we had him on loan. Always on the edge of a major mistake. Isn’t a ball playing defender Ardley, stop playing him like he is.”

“started well and was our best at the back, but that really isn’t saying much”

“Good to see him back, he impressed me once he started more often. A good player in the making.”

“he looked much stronger and technically gifted against alfreton, very calm on the ball.”

“he looks to have matured a lot since last season too. Powerful at the back and calm on the ball”

Bradford Park Avenue Fans Views On Harry Boyes

“Boyes is some player. Thank you Sheffield United for the loan. It’s good to see such a young player plying his trade in the non league game. I’ve seen many not put the effort in when loaned out in similar circumstances. In the early stages of the game I felt he posed the greatest threat to Alfreton. He made one run in the first half working his way into the penalty area and it took a last ditch tackle to prevent him getting a shot at goal.”

“Stand out for me was Boyes always looking to get forward and create, always asking for the ball. Nice to have a confident youngster in the team”

“Boyes is our most dangerous attacking option.”

“I’ve told you before.
This kid is good.”

“That back four of Ross, Havern, Lund and Boyes doing the basics right looks solid”

“Boyes is really showing his talent”

“Congratulations to goalkeeper Dan Atkinson and defender Harry Boyes who’ve made the @NonLeaguePaper @FotMob National League North/South Team of the Day.”

“Well deserved”

A selection of view from Wales fans regarding the performances of Ethan Ampadu and Rhys Norrington-Davies during their 1-0 win over Bulgaria

“Ampadu so good at inteceptions. At Leipzig his role is to dart from CB and steal the ball”

“Ampadu dragging Davies away from an argument with the referee – future captain”

“Smith seemed more relaxed today. Because Ampadu is playing alongside him in the middle (Chris Wilder take note!)”

“Ampadu. Peerless, playmaker peacemaker.”

“never fails to impress me. Unbelievable player and only going to get better”

“Ampadu doing Ampadu things”

“Quality”

“Don’t understand the hype around Declan Rice either, bang average player. Ethan Ampadu can do exactly what he does to the exact same level.”

“One of the biggest positives”

“Outstanding”

“My MOTM has to be Ethan Ampadu. Showed such maturity when all the yellow cards were flying around. Missed very little attack and defence wise. Bravo.”

“Rodon & Ampadu.. both seriously talented”

“a solid display”

“There were plenty of promising performances tonight. Rodon, Mepham, Ampadu & Norrington-Davies did well”

“I know Ampadu has cult status for Wales but he’s massively overrated.”

“He’s about seven years old though. There’s probably an element of projection to the general view of him, in that he looks like one of those strolling midfield generals/liberos that great European teams of the past had. But he’s a kid. A promising one, too.”

“Didnt do enough imo”

“Ampadu was poor”

“Great debut from Norrington Davies.”

“Norrington-Davies MOTM.”

“Norrington-Davies was excellent”

“Rhys Norrington-Davies fantastic on debut”

“looked at ease on debut”

” First time I’ve seen Norrington-Davies play – impressive. “

“Norrington-Davies was a STUD this game”

“Absolutely brilliant debut”

“Norrington-Davies impressed a lot”

“Rhys Norrington-Davies was a big plus on his debut”

“thought the dude looked good on his debut tonight”

“Rhys Norrington-Davies like a prime Kenny Jackett out there tonight”

“Norrington-Davies looked quite good!”

“Llongyfarchiadau Rhys Norrington-Davies cap cyntaf arbennig. Aber boi done good! “

Norway Fans Views On Sander Berge

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is received_315383596236456-644x337.png

“Very exciting starting lineup of Norway for the game now. Martin Ødegaard, Mohamed Elyonoussi, Sander Berge, Erling Braut Haaland, Kristoffer Ajer … TOP.”

“Sander Berge’s best international match? Displays Genk class today”

“Berge Man of the match”

“Sander Berge is good, but it does not go very fast with him.”

“Berge should have been substituted”

“We can talk about hype on many Norwegian players – but no one beats Berge. What do people see that we do not see?”

“What IS Sander Berge really good at?”

“Sander Berge is overrated!”

“Both Berge and Normann will drop out soon”

“victory against a weakened Northern Ireland thanks to a comic own goal by Stuart Dallas. reckons that it is good enough for the media to talk Ødegaard into the first student, as well as Haaland and Berge into Real Madrid”

Republic Of Ireland Fans Views On Enda Stevens

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is received_315383596236456-644x337.png

“Stevens a bit unlucky with this chance”

“Enda Stevens of all people came closest to scoring for us”

“The simple joy of seeing a natural left back in a system that encourages overlapping runs and quality delivery into the box should keep the Sheffield United veteran in the manager’s plans”

“Stevens linked up well with Aaron Connolly down the left”

“A decent showing.”

“good from both full-backs in an attacking sense.

“Rock solid defensively and a useful outlet on the left. Is now Ireland’s Mr Dependable.”

“Once again, very hard to quibble with anything he did during the game and it was another assured performance from a player eager to get on the ball as often as possible.”

“Stevens didn’t have as prominent a game as he did against Wales on Sunday and conceded possession at one point that resulted in one of Finland’s clearest chances. “

“The fact Stephen Kenny gets paid money to play Matt Doherty and Enda Stevens at full back instead of wing back is why I love football”

“Stevens does something awful every game he plays for Ireland.”

Scotland Fans Views On John Fleck

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is received_315383596236456-644x337.png

“Fleck is the only Scotland player I’d personally like to see in the Rangers current squad.”

” I would personally have fleck before McGinn.”

“John fleck>Calum McGregor”

“The way folk go on about him I’m expecting Pirlo.”

“Somebody needs to tell fleck he’s can pass forward”

“Considine, Jack, Fleck… Just not cutting it for Scotland.”

“Fleck is an empty shirt. I’m not sure hes done one notable thing in any appearance hes had for scotland.”

“Game passed him by”

“John fleck is garbage”

“A complete passenger and offered us nothing”

“Don’t see it with Fleck. Really don’t see what he offers”

“John Fleck is honking”.

“John Fleck is a wee plum and oot his depth”

“John Fleck shouldn’t be anywhere near this squad. Awful player. Starting to think an unfit Griffiths would be a good shout”

“John Fleck is the most Scottish looking guy I’ve ever seen”

Norway Fans Views On Sander Berge

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is received_315383596236456-644x337.png

“Imagine if the players that is class today like Ødegaard, Håland, Ajer, Omar, Berge played like this against Serbia…”

“Ødegaard and Berge on a completely different level today, make some mistakes, but now dare to cross joints.”

“Haland is a goal scoring machine, there are Odegaard, Hauge and Berge on the side, this is even clearer”

“Haaland
Sørloth
Ødegaard
Hauge
Berge
Man, is that legal demais”

“What a pair Haaland and Ødegaard are with so much future and also sander Berge from Sheffield a crack”

“Hauge, Odegaard, Haaland, Sorloth, Sander Berge, Ajer. HOW MUCH THE FUCK DOES NORWAY GAS ?!”

“Very solid from Berge”

“It doesn’t take much to look good when you have Johansen and Berge next to you”

“Rice at Chelsea? Lol to do what? 60 million for this guy … Sander Berge is stronger”

“As a Chelsea fan we should go for Berge”

“Sander Berge, the 220 millionaire, you will get me cheap from me. big, heavy and everything goes in syrup. Praised”

“Sander Berge is Norway’s worst national team player. Now I may step on some toes, but I’m shitting.”

Wales Fans Views On Ethan Ampadu

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is received_315383596236456-644x337.png

“Ethan Ampadu vs Ireland
Position played: CB
•100% tackle success
•100% aerials won
•91% pass completion
•0 times dribbled past
•1 interception
•6 clearances
Clean sheet.
What a display from the 20year old”

“A good defensive display from Amps”

“Ampadu today was great, really solid”

“A very good perfromance”

“Stuck his head on the chopping block in the two boxes. Slotted into the centre of defence seamlessly, after struggling in midfield against Jack Grealish and England on Thursday night. Produced a fine display at the back. Man of the match”

“Disappointed to see Ampadu playing CB again. Don’t get me wrong he is great there but he offers so much more than anyone else in the squad at CDM.”

“I think the direction of travel is certainly for Ampadu to be played in defence at club and international level. TB Leipzig were adamant that he’s a defender, Sheff U seem to be of the same mind and Giggs is clearly trying to give him some continuity in that position now too.”

“I can also see the benefit of providing Ampadu with some continuity if his preferred position has been decided.”

“If Giggs, Wilder and Lampard have all decided that he is a CB then I agree with the continuity. It just seems a shame and a bit of a waste of talent for Wales when he is a cut above the rest of our current CDM’s.”

“I think Ampadu is best suited to the middle of a back 3 with license to step into midfield. “

“Ampadu the most creative player today from CB, that says alot”

“Ampadu wasted in defence tho need him in the middle of the park”

“Ampadu is hugely missed in midfield”

“I think Rodon and Ampadu is the best possible pairing in central defence, but Allen and Ampadu is also the best combination at the base of midfield. I expect Ampadu may be our best striker and goalkeeper too though”

“We all dream of a team of Ampadu’s, a team of Ampadu’s . . . “
