Iwobi, Gray, Maupay, Gueye all had good games. Iwobi nudges it for me for how smart he was those final minutes and for continually looking to play forward balls. Gueye is always going to be a little underrated but his ability to break up play and provide a willing outlet for the back 4 is immense for us. A player who really understands his role and does it well.

Iwobi for being the best player on the pitch, others are starting to catch up with his performances but haven’t quite got there just yet. Big shout for Maupay and Patterson. 

Patterson is going to be a superstar if his judgement improves. He has it all but he’s raw as you’d expect from a player with so little experience at this level. Same with Onana. They just need to take their lumps and learn. In 2-3 years they can be incredible.

Is the Begovic vote being deleted as a joke vote guy never had anything to do for most of the game 

Apart from the point blank save at the end and the distribution that was accurate for the full 90 minutes?

Begovic wouldn't be my MOTM, but can see why some would.

No, no, not a joke vote.  Possibly wrongheaded, of course.

Though ..... in the match thread I posted that “Begović made some important saves, too,” which was upvoted by 5, apparently similarly deluded, TT-ers.  Now, these 5 muddleheads — I name them not, to save them from guilt-by-association — cannot be held responsible for my ghastly faux pas.

May I have a cigarette before facing the firing squad?  And an Alex Iwobi signature jersey, for my sins and as I breathe my last?

I almost voted for him. You have to be mentally tough to step into a game like that after sitting on the bench for months and keep a clean sheet. He deserves his vote.

Not as mentally tough as Elston Gunn was to vote for him! 😂

More like just “ mental.”

Which almost led me to ask whether you Brits, like Americans, use “mental” as slang for “crazy.”  Almost.  For, as I thought about it, I began to think probably “mental” is actually British slang that we Americans have adopted over time.

I could look it up in my handy guide, Norman W. Schur’s thorough and thoroughly hilarious British English A to Zed.  Highly recommended.  I’ve learned, seriously, that we Yanks have in recent decades adopted quite a few Britisms.

The opposite really we would say crazy as slang for mental, but over the country there will be a multitude of definitions for someone who is mental.

When I’m out with my wife she now say “can I get a …” instead of “can I have a …” and it absolutely does my head in. You damn Yanks ruining our language!!! I should never have taken her to the states.

The word “get” might be, I never made out otherwise, but the use of it in a request is just a lack of manners. 

I was quoting my English teacher from school. Almost the exact comment was made as yours, and he made clear that using "get" is as British English as it gets. Now, as for manners, I can't say.

Back when you were in school they would say “can I get” instead of “can I have”?

You’ve finally convinced me that Cornwall is another country after all. 😂

Steve is the same age as me fucking old, but I don’t remember get being taught or used in the context being discussed.
