    Abuse?

    If my opinion is abuse in your eyes you need to get out more pal.... makIng excuses for a loss that wasn’t a clear cut robbery is the worse thing she could have done for her career. In my opinion she needs to concentrate on her boxing rather than stand in front of a camera as much as she does trying to look like a pin up girl. My opinion not abuse.

    It would appear you have not spent much time around women if you didn't realise they like to take pictures of themselves.

    Maybe you haven't because in my experience, it depends on the type of woman.

    :lol: Fair play.

    Look, I understand what you're saying about Courtenay, nobody deserves abuse, if she's getting terrible abuse online then it's not acceptable.

    But criticism is fair, criticism of her attitude is fair, if we were all on here insulting her looks, insulting her intelligence and wishing she got a savage beating then yeah I agree it wouldn't be fair.

    But most of slaughter arrogant fighters, from Khan, DeGale, O'Hara Davies to Prince Patel and many others, I think the majority's of British fight fans don't like that sort of attitude.


    That's all it is, her attitude and this Matchroom force feeding.

    I do find it quite amusing how she manged to get under peoples skin so easily, she has become the new heel of women's boxing overnight and plenty would watch the rematch now even if just to see her loose.

    It's the "Matchroom Effect".

    Conor Benn is exactly the same, Hearn tries to build these "Journeys" and I just don't think people like it.

    They get over exposed, they have nice little puff pieces written about them, little promos, cosy IFL and Boxing Social interviews.

    While having done absolutely nothing of note in a boxing ring, they get superstar treatment while beating poor to bang average women or journeymen.

    Class player.

    Current Players and Fans Player of the Year.

    Can score from range, inside the box, assist, can play the clever pass.

    Not missed a penalty either.

    Can sit deep but his best position is as the #10. Covers a decent amount of ground, too. Good injury record, too.

    There isn't really much to dislike about both himself and his game. A fans favourite with 95% of the crowd.

    A total bare faced mugging by Rangers if you get him for just £2m. He is worth, had he more time on his contract, at least £8m.

    Be a sad sad day when "50 Grand" leaves us at PNE.

    Best of luck DJ. The Rangers fans are in for a treat.

    Sounds promising mate. I’ve seen the uproar from Preston fans on Twitter which is always a good sign.

    Hopefully a deal can be done to suit both parties although there’s no chance Rangers will pay more than £2m for a potential Bosman in January. I thought the fee Peterborough got for Toney was mental.

    There’s a few surplus to requirements at Rangers like Jordan Jones (LW), Greg Stewart (AM/LW/RW) and Jamie Barjonas (CM). Maybe a swap deal of sorts could be done.

    Good luck to Preston.
