It is his site which he totally funds with no ad income to help. So he can pretty say what he wants. Also a lot of his posts are answering queries and advising on updates etc. So dont be so harsh.

I appreciate him creating the site, but I think some of things he posts are the exact source of the toxicity he complains about.

I would also like to issue a formal apology to Banana because I've managed to find the one person on earth who has spent more time on earth in front of a computer monitor than him.

I'm in the orange keyboard warrior category because I think Fosu>M***** on the right wing :pop:, I would love for M***** to prove me wrong but this season he's been a shadow of the player he was last season and Fosu has been red hot.

Whilst I probably start in your camp here, just a matter of time before someone suggests you factor game time into the above. Oops, think I might have just done that. ;) :sorted:

To be fair, Fosu does have more tackles per game...

In summary, Mbeumo has performed better against almost every metric this season.

I don't know if its just the GPG or socail media but people are often put into one camp or the other, if you post something that ones disagrees with. Either your a bed wetter or rose tinted Brigade. I like to think I'm in the middle, so I'm not sure what or whose camp that is?. 😆

@Untouchable i've seen more surprises out of a cuckoo clock than you.

The only thing longer, than that diatribe you call a 'fact check' every game day is your block list, which may I remind you i'm supposed to be on.

3) You seem unsettled. I suspect you need help beyond that of the fine GPG community

Tariq has earned his place in the squad through grit and determination, TF was reluctant to play him at all at the start of the season so he earned his stripes playing fullback in the league cup and took everyone by surprise. TF even compared his performance to Dani Alves, while the fullback thing didn't work out for him he has atleast proved himself to be be brilliant option on the wing. It also helps he has great chemistry with Toney.

Tariq has won MOTM atleast once this year ( it may be a high as 2/3) whereas Brian has won 0, bloody good achievement for someone who was struggling to get in the side earlier on.

True or false? you cry every match about how you're gonna block people who don't share your opinion.

My dictionary definition of a keyboard warrior.

Fosu has come on and done well IMHO. However, Brian does have alot of assists and that is a fact.

It's not always that people dislike players...

It's that certain people enjoy strawmanning @Untouchable accused me of having a 'pop' at someone when i've done no such thing in my time at GPG, he can't form a coherant response to my arguements just pull up stats which are easily researched on google.

I'm not discounting his contribution, however IN MY OPINION and that's all it is an opinion, Brian is alot easier to defend agaist due to his lack of a right foot and if he's going to fufill his potential he needs to work on that a lot, because all defenders have to is show him down the line and they can be relatively confident he can't whip it in off his right foot.

Do remember that game when Brian took everyone by surprise and crossed the ball beautifully into Tariq (who isn't the tallest or most physical) who scored a header on the back post. We need more of that from him.

What about the game when we made a fast break and Canos was basically in his own postcode, instead of just using his right foot, Brian tried to cut in off his left foot and crashed into the defender tracking back, I can't be the only one who felt the frustration there.

My eyes tell me Fosu>Mbeumo on the right at this moment in time and if Brian wants to prove me wrong there are plenty of games left in season to show his quality.

I understand where your coming from. Although, the chance that Canos missed against Norwich was (if I remember correctly) from Brian who went on the outside right and cross/shot with his right.

I'm not sure why I used the word "camp" in my post earlier. I think I was trying to find an alternative phrase for expressing agreement. Having not followed the thread too closely, I wasn't aware of the friction which I now see. In these circumstances, this was certainly an ill-judged word.

Let's all draw a line under it. Let's all get behind the team, players and manager for the run in.
