Remind me of all the games he has changed for us in the last two seasons.

 

This season alone, wouldn’t you say Reach, Joao and Fletcher have each changed more games than FF? 

 

Can be a terrific player. On his game, in the right mood, in the right position - Brilliant. But it’s very very rare these days.

Because he's been injured which I assume is your point.

He is the one player I hope is fit to face the scrubbers

Just read that Celtic player has been sent off after for excessive celebration after scoring last minute winner today as well. It’s all a bit silly.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

With fans like you we don't need any supporters for the opposition.

Any pictures of him ‘in’ the crowd then. There was loads when he went in at Forest. .

He didn’t go in the crowd - after the players had celebrated and were moving away from the fans, FF seemed to spot Tango and went back to him to celebrate further - that’s when another fan or 2 joined in. That’s why the ref booked him - rightly or wrongly.

Looks like that's pretty much what happened. Rightly booked for me, if the rest of the team including the goalscorer have made their way back to the centre circle and your still there hugging tango (allegedly) and high fiving fans, and your fellow player has to run back from the centre circle to fetch you back, you're going to get a booking. 

 

Sorry nando, it's only because I want to see you play every game but you've got to make a choice between a balotelli "why always me?" mentality or one based on self responsibility. Cracking volley though, absolutely thumped it.

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.

The last paragraph sums it up perfectly.

95% of celebrations are silly, let's face it. 30-year-olds doing rubbish knee slides like a sugared-up primary schooler at a wedding disco, ffs lol

Dunno if this helps any.

 

Vid from a Rovrum "fan". 

 

Go to 37 sec point. FF picks the ball out of the goal and runs to the left of the goal  immediately after we score where some "fan" jumps on him. Vid ends as steward arrives to help FF

 

Presumably after the steward gets rid of the "fan" FF makes his way to the right of the goal to join the rest of his teammates.

However - he was hanging around celebrating far longer than he should have been - everybody else (apart from Fletcher who appeared to go and fetch him) were ready to kick off.

 

That's the main issue for me, the high five is not the reason he was sent off. No idea why he had to be the last back. It is what it is, he'll serve his 1 game ban and hopefully will pick up exactly where he left off, an excellent performance from him on a day where the ret were poor

I would say 2 reasons

 

1) the number of injuries which is unfortunately part of the game

2) the tactics employed around him, is expected role in let's face it incredibly dour, pragmatic godawful football we have been set up to play. Remember how he played when there was a freedom around the team as a whole. For about 25 games under Carlos

 

FF genuinely gets me on the edge of my seat. But like JJ did, like Antonio did. That is the football I want to see

Surely this rule needs changing though? why can't you celebrate with the fans who pay their money to watch their team play? not saying I would condone him running up the stairs and into the stand, but surely over the hoardings and for the fans to run to him is allowed? equalising goals in the 100th minute should be allowed to be celebrated with the fans. I felt sorry for Sterling at Bournemouth and I did for Scott Brown yesterday, are players supposed to show no emotion and just walk back to the half way line? let them celebrate winning/equalising goals in added on time with their fans
