Danny Wilson: Barnsley boss furious at late cancellation

Wilson returned for a second spell as manager at Oakwell last month and was hoping to register his first win in six games since replacing David Flitcroft, but a late pitch inspection at The Valley left him frustrated.

"It's cost the fans a lot of money to come all the way down without any warning that it might be off," Wilson told the club's official website.

"When it does happen like that it's difficult to take. From our point of view, there's nothing we could have done.

"We had no prior warning. I only heard there would be an inspection at 11.35am (on Saturday) morning.

"We expected it to go ahead because they've had a dome on to protect the pitch from the weather over the last 10 days so we thought it would be much better. But, when we got on it, it was far from that.

"It's the correct decision. The referee's got a concern about the players' safety, which is paramount in anybody's eyes.

"We're just frustrated that we haven't had any prior warning to it, otherwise we maybe could have come down and looked at it at teatime on Friday.

"The lads were really ready for it and wanting to play and unfortunately that frustration is there."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
