Pathetic game and performance.

I wish you fellows would get Vellios's first name right. It is spelled A-P-O-S-T-O-L-O-S. Therefore the shortened version is TOLOS, not 'Tolis.'

I went to the game last night hoping to maybe see a few more senior players. However, the majority of the side were young lads. The match itself was dismal with Tranmere far better. I know it was only a reserve game/friendly and most of the lads were only young boys, but it was a really disappointing display from the whole team especially the few senior payers who should have been excelling against poor opposition. Rodwell in particular was awful. He should have ran that game and put on a display for the crowd. Instead he was our worst player. I hope Stubbsy let's Moyes know exactly how bad they were given that they should be pushing for places for the new season.
