Jordan Shipley scores a goal at the weekend and it seems there is far far more focus on his goal celebration than the goal.

Meanwhile on the local radio station a fan clamours for the return to the starting line up for Max Biamou and cites his contribution in a game that he won a penalty in. He then suggest he should be the main man next season and we should get rid of Tyler Walker. This is curious as in the game in question Tyler Walker scored two goals and Max Biamou did what he does best - not score at all.

This however is the world we live in.

Now this may be poetic licence but I believe its is reasonable to say that Jordan Shipley gets more abuse in social media then any other player we have and Max Biamou gets a significant amount of praise. Certainly if you are negative to Biamou there is a swift response from the pack and if Mr Shipley is mocked anyone defending him is ridiculed.

After all Max Biamou got us promoted from League Two right? He scored in the play off semi final.

So scoring in the final I guess means nothing but hey ho

Max is better than JCH as we got two promotions with him right? Well OK than I guess we are better with Jordan Shipley than James Maddsion on that basis and also better with Biamou than Adam Armstrong

Sadly for Shipley he is a Paul Telfer type. Hard working, tries to adapt to the managers needs and head down does the job. He has no story, he looks a bit hang dog. he doesnt have cult status. If he was out of contract should we offer a new one? Nah - but lets offer Max one as we need that 4th or even 5th striker.

Biamou has the story, He has the strut and he smiles for the cameras. He is the modern day Mo Konjik and everyone loves Mo against poor old Telfer right?

As Oggys says Max doesn't score lots of goals but he gets his share.

Well he has 14 league goals in his career. Poor Jordan he's not a striker but hey he only has.........14 league goals.

Max creates a lot as well says Oggy. Well I don't think we should look at the assists stats as come on he does other things.

Shipley will always be maligned more versus Biamou as he is just not as news worthy and is not as hyped. The fans will look for the mispaced pass and groan. Biamou spoons over from 5 yards and boy that took a bobble and he did so well to get there anyway

Biamou can wear Nylon from Primark and Shipley the finest silk but there is always only one winner

Fans are funny creatures aren't they?

'One' can cause a lot of static due to friction you know.😊

Years of awful football made coventry fans appreciate a person who tries over a person with natural ability .

"Yea I know he couldn't hit a barn door but he runs around alot "

Some players hit their ceiling .. I'd say Jordan is extremely close to that ceiling if not slightly beyond it however if Robins believes he can get more from him then hopefully as he has age on his side he can.

Whatever happens with max , fans will still be talking about his breathtaking contribution for decades to come ..in the same breath as dion and noel

Moving on

I don't rate max .. many do

I didn't rate adebola ... many did

I rated stern John... many didn't

I rate mcfadzean ..many don't

It's just the way it is

Shipley has been taking stick because he has been completely ineffective in almost every game he's played this season. If your not going to effect the game with the ball at your feet the least you can do is make a nuisance if yourself, close players down and try and make some tackles. IMO Shipley hasn't done any of that this season and has completely hidden in games which aren't going our way. Say what you want about Biamou's finishing and all round play but you can't question his effort which is why fans let him off when he misses one on ones etc. And no, I am not part of the 'cult'.

If matty godden came here and scored 14 league goals in 94 league games ...
I'm sure fans would feel exactly the same way they do with him as biamou today 🤣

They already hate Walker whose scored more goals in less games

Would not really describe Shipley as "hard working". I don't think that's his fault, I just don't think he has that in him. He does however have a lovely left foot.

I've heard Shipley called a lot of things but never 'hard working' :ROFLMAO:
