Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I don't believe Harry Defoe was dropped for Van he said when the commentator said there was nine missing Harrt slipped up and said this was his best team then he back stracted and said its not fair on the players injured. This team will giv e us a heart attack in the second half of games there is too many players the same style Parker Sandro Lennon and Hudds fir would create more goals and Defoe give Ady more freedom to score 4411will cause too many draws or defeats like last year

  2. Bollocks was Defoe dropped for vdV. Why would Harry lie? He already stated that he intended to play the same team that started against Liverpool.

    You also seem to be pissed.
