Re: Anyone watching the footy(20/01)?

No surprise to see Jon Moss involved in yet another farcical incident. The very fact that Rodri was running towards Mings meant he was challenging for the ball so the goal shouldn't have stood. I've seen a lot of talk that Mings should have cleared the ball but that again implies he should do so be...

Aubemayang overtakes Chris Wood by scoring his fourth and fifth goals of the season in his 18th game. Surprised that he is still being given a chance just because he scored 22 last season and was their leading goalscorer. Surely he should have been dropped.
