Football forums are for the sharing of views on the football club, which should allow for criticism. If a player cannot handle being criticised in the online sphere he should stay off the forum. We shouldn’t be expected to hide our views in case it hurts the feelings of those who have no need to be on the forum.
I agree with so many of the comments re Rory. If we take a look with league 2 V Champions league and the Premier league on the TV there are glaring differences. This is also true comparing league 2 with local footy at Barton, Brigg, Winterton and Bottesford. I do wonder if seeing so much footy on the box has made us all a little over critical. Making reference to a particular situation in a particular game just highlights further how mistakes are remembered for weeks, months and even seasons. If the centre halves are as good as we hope goals difference may favour the goals for rather than against.
It does appear Rory will start between the jumpers and I hope he will be judged by clean sheets and saves rather than the odd (or frequent) mistakes. A striker appears to get away with a shot which ends up on the railway line without undue criticism. Perhaps we can give the keeper the same sort of respect.
