Maffff should probably have realised his mistake when those f[u]ckwits SDR and CKS agreed with him.

Sure sign that you've said something stupid.

Hound I’ve no problem with him sharing an opinion tbh. And no problem with GMac telling him to fcuk off

Don’t really do twitter but not sure ‘tagging in’ is appropriate.

I’d however suggest it’s oversimplification on his part - McCleary basically near the end of his career, 4(?) young kids at school, wife might well be working locally etc.

It’s not as simple as ‘just go find somewhere else’. Maybe he tried but no option allowed him to live at home etc. Then why would you leave/uproot the family

The idea that the likes of maffff think they have some sort of right to contact players to criticise them directly is a disgrace IMO.

I've chucked around plenty of criticism of players on here. And if they choose to come here to read it, that's their look out IMO. But the idea of looking up Gunter and berating him for what I think he does? The arrogance would be astounding.

It's one thing to criticise someone for how they play. Or to criticise people who have never really performed, haven't been here long, are actually doing something wrong and taking advantage... but players with long and committed service. You've got to be a total pcunt to go after them directly to their face.

My ignorance - but what does tagging someone on twitter actually do? Send them some sort of notification or appear in their feed?

But yep, some loser who spends all day on Twitter really has no right to be telling talented successful sports people to do anything really

You'll get a notification if someone tags you on Twitter.

Unless they have them turned off, which I would assume some footballers do.

Seems McCleary obviously got the message from him. Did a decent job of making mafff look a complete tool as well

This 100%. Two of the biggest Fcukwitts on Twitter and unfortunately Maffff (who I used to have a lot of time for), is spiralling towards their levels of pcuntishness.

Maffff has posted some excellent stuff on here. Baffled as to why he wants to have a go at somebody like GMac.

Maffff likes being 'edgy' and is playing the followers and social media game IMO. A bit of attention (for some pretty good stuff) and then he thinks he's got a right to tell professional athletes how they're wrong and he's right.

Jonathan Low getting some serious stick on Twitter, notably from Yakou Meite. Labelled the racist comments as "alleged".

It's a silly outrage deflecting from the seriousness of the actual issue. Journalists are taught to tweet "alleged" from a legal perspective.

Can anyone clear up what happened. I got in the car after the game and Tim and Adie were talking about a Tweet that Yak had sent out being a bit cryptic, then a few minutes later they said it was because a 'fan' had tweeted Yak with something quite nasty.

Also, I heard that Tim was bitching about the starting line up before the game. Can anyone confirm?

Feel like the pressure of strong competition is getting to Meite a bit.

Obviously a ridiculous DM and it shouldn't be the case but surely most pros are used to receiving a ton of absolute shit on social media?

This followed up by him calling jlow out and following him storming off the pitch at 90mins.

I guess they might but this isn't your standard, run-of-the-mill "you're shit"

Which is fair enough. Can anyone elaborate on what was said/Tweeted to Yak?
