    The last paragraph sums it up perfectly.

    Dont be ridiculous - all views should be valid on a forum even if you don’t like them. I’ll always support the club, go to games, it’s in your blood. Doesnt mean I can’t have a different view to others on why FF gets this treatment. Sometimes you reap what you sow. And for the record, I hope he gets back to his form from 3 years ago, plays 40 games, smashes 25 goals next season and gets us promoted. He’s a talent when focussed and fit. Just not seen it for too long on any consistent basis unfortunately.

    No anger or disdain from me. Just an honest opinion that FF has a history of disciplinary problems. He is the one player in our squad that can turn a game but is also likely to dive to get a decision. He has a reputation because of it.We all know that and so do referees. They treat his reaction to certain challenges/situations differently because of it. If the guy is producing, great but the sad reality is he has produced nothing for 18 months plus. My original post in this thread was about his overall record not the specific circumstances at Rotherham. When a player has flaws but produces the goods, those flaws are forgivable. Unfortunately we have seen almost nothing other than in brief glimpses for nearly 2 years. I know it’s not a popular view on here but it’s time he repaid the club on the pitch for backing him with a new contract.

    His temperament is well known though and that means referees deal with him differently. He is known to push the boundaries. Today is an example of a referee dealing with him because of the reputation he has got. Today is just one incident, like I said trouble follows him around like a bad smell and always will.

    You werent abusive though. I know my view in FF won’t be popular but we can disagree without resorting to that. Neil should re-read his posts and agree he is bang out of order with his language. I think we’ll be having the same debate about FF in a year. He might have played 15-20 more games but highly likely to face more discipline problems and injuries IMO. Fans fall in love with players like FF but it’s a double edged sword and for the last 2 years other than in glimpses we have seen the worst of him unfortunately. There’s a reason Watford off loaded him for all his talent. He hasn’t played in the Premier League for a reason. Dont think there is anything wrong with holding my opinion that for all his talent, his temperament means he can be a liability as well as an asset.

    Different opinions are part of a forum. The language used by Lodgemoornev is just bang out of order. Maybe that’s the depth’s that Owlstalk has sunk too. I’m suprised that is OK but it’s a long standing poster being abusive so i’m sure Neil and the mods don’t mind.

    Eh? This is about FF over years not just today.

    I might think you’re an ignorant old fool but I would never tell you to get to the Lane.

    Nice. Grow up. I’ve watched us at 70 plus grounds over 45 years. Pretty embarassing post. We are all entitled to an opinion even on here. Keep the pathetic insults coming.

    Good to see different opinions other than the blinkered herd are allowed on here. Blind loyalty is is one of the flaws of a typical football fan. BTW, I’d love to see FF in the team playing every week and paying back the club for his contract improvements. Unfortunately the moment it looks like he might play consistently another drama happens. It is no coincidence.

    I would have thought it was obvious. Players like FF roll around whether they have really been clattered or not. It definitely affects the way referees deal with him. Diving and making most of situations is sadly part of his game. Unless it’s ok for our players to do it but we moan like hell when others do it ?

    It is fairly simple. He gets additional attention because of his antics. He makes every challenge look like he’s been shot. Rolls around looking for fouls. Like Peter and the wolf. Referees get sick of him trying it on. Then we wonder why he doesn’t get justice when someone really clatters him.

    He’s got sent off. Got a previous yellow. He has constant form in this respect. Take off the blue and white glasses. He is no use to us sat in the stands. Unfortunately, whatever his talent, it is a constant problem. The guy is a pro - needs to improve this part of his game. He has done next to nothing for 2 years for one reason or another including long periods suspended.
