    Tom Lawrence... Yet again!

    The more I watch the events on TV the more I see that he was after a bust up! How many times does he have to do something like this!

    By now with his age and experience he should know better..... we’re on an amazing run at the moment with all to play for. Clear to see PC was very disappointed in him!

    Only positive I can see is that he didn’t do it at a crucial time in a crucial match!

    Is it time to call it quits on him?

    The thing is it's hard not to retaliate when someone slaps you around the mush!

    Rich I think it's time he went he never learns he can't zip it , That defender was letting him know what he thought about a really bad tackle earlier by Lawrence . A tackle he was fortunate not to see red , he done quite a few dangerous tackles recently . I think a change of club would be good for all concerned

    The trouble is that there is a decent talent inside the body of someone who has no self control.

    From being booked almost every game, to red cards after the game has finished, and let's not forget drink driving.

    He's a scaled down version (characteristically, at least) of your George Bests, Rodney Marshes, Paul Gascoignes etc etc of the past. Loose cannons with big up and down sides to them.

    We both may benefit from a change of scene, but I'd hate to give up on him having seen him at his best, not often enough. Match winners will always have this downside, I guess it's all part of the same package, and we have few enough match winners to be able to junk the one we've got.

    Another brilliant goal, 10+ this season I believe, pretty good going. Why wasn't our captain keeping an eye on him?

    Geoff yes you can't argue he is a talent At his best he's probably our best player ,but I've seen him drift through to many games without any contribution ,to worry whether he plays or goes

    Adi you are right another brilliant goal , but he must have more control 12 yellows already. Why should the captain be keeping an eye on a 26yr old with over 100 league starts for Dcfc

    Leadership, he needs to have an arm around him now and again.

    They went chest to chest
    Lawro bounced backwards
    Lawro went back for more
    Lawro was pushed backward
    Lawro went back for more again, this time leading with his head but no forward motion of the head so not a butt
    It was only at this point that Miazga bitch slapped Lawro
    The ref saw it and red carded both. Correct decision IMO.

    Why did Lawro keep going back in for more? The slap around the mush was Miazga's LAST act. Lawro could, and should, have walked away.

    If anything good comes out of this it will be that Sibbo has been given the perfect example of how NOT to act on the pitch.

    Not much in the way of social distancing there then.

    Trying to headbutt someone who’s at least six inches taller always seems a flawed plan to me.

    We don’t know what was said of course, but seems like a case of time to grow up, Tom
