For those who thought Grant was fine, ok or whatever last night good god I'd hate to see him poor.
And yes I did travel hundreds of miles each way from Scotland to watch as I do home and away on quite a regular basis.
But I DO NOT agree with the abuse of any kind.
He was better than Hamilton, Walker and Bishop yesterday, and we created absolutely nothing once he’d gone off. The stick he is getting is unwarranted.
That's your opinion, some of us differ, its an opinion based messageboard.
If you think mom Bishop didn't do his job and Grant did then fair enough (shaking head emoji)
Football is all about opinions but anyone who thinks Bishop didn't do his job have must be on something, I can think of no other explanation. As I have said in the match report thread, I felt Grant had another poor night and was rightly subbed - though I agree Mellis also had a poor evening and I think they both could have gone off for Macca and Tomlinson. No doubt we lost midfield as for the most part it was Bish v 3 Imps, but we were a bit better when Grant came off and Macca came on. I think this is the weakness in the formation, Lincoln outnumbered us in midfield and for all his fantastic work, Bishop could not do it all on his own, he needed help from Grant and Mellis and did not get it, especially in the first 15 mins of the 2nd half. DF did recognise that hence the sub, but in hindsight I think he could have made a double change.
As for the abuse (which I have not seen), it is sad and pathetic, it is right to discuss and debate the merits or otherwise of our players, but to abuse our own players is ridiculous and totally counter-productive.
