Taylor left a gap open at the back, which was exposed when Jay lost the ball. Ben had to make a decision and was a centimetre away from an inch perfect tackle.

He's won us far more points than he's cost us this season that's for sure.

What about giving Vydra stick for missing his chances?

Yes..that's exactly it. I cannot get my head around why, after watching that cracking game and terrific performance from us, the thing that you are moved to highlight for everyone is a mistake, which we all knew about anyway, evidencing that in your opinion Ben Mee isn't good enough to play for England.
All your marks on rate the player, the thread that will be run after today's 'cracking game and terrific performance', will be 10 then?

A guy who loves the club, is an amazing servant to the club and to a large extent epitomises the club. He's brilliant in so many ways, but doesn't play for a top 6/7 club or for England for a reason. He can be absolutely fantastic, but sometimes makes the odd rick. That's why we have him and tbh, I'm glad we have him because he's still miles better than MOST other PL defenders.
Miles better? He’s simply not.

He’s played how many PL seasons for Burnley now? Players that are better than most don’t play that long for a team like Burnley. Compare him to Trippier, Keane or Ings. 1 PL season is all it took before someone came and took them away.

It’s just claret tinted specs nonsense. Brighton fans will say Dunks one of the best. Wolves, Coady, Newcastle laselles, etc etc

Again it's that thing on here where it's impossible to stay on the subject because some folk think it's an attack on Burnley FC.

I have said many times that he isn't good enough for and will never play for England.

Was it a shocker from Ben? Yes

Does it mean we don't want to see him in a Burnley shirt again? No

Did he have a good game overall? Not bad, but he's played better.

Do we love Ben Mee? Of course. He's a Claret that will be remembered for a very very long time.

I totally see what you're saying, BUT how many top PL defenders (or goalkeepers for that matter) don't make a costly error every now and again? Look at Stones just as an example?? Need I say more???

They all do. Goalkeepers:Defenders directly get the blame when goals are conceded. Me personally don’t see the big deal with it. Strikers miss chances time and time again but never get slated for making mistakes. It’s one of those things. If defenders defended at 100% all the time they’d never be any goals.

Who’s looking for a scapegoat and for what? Plenty of reasons why we only took a point from today's match.
Simple fact is that he will never be an England international and he has gifted to the opposition not for the first time this season. It was a p1ss poor penalty to give away.
I suggest you go and watch another team then. Maybe when you see how bad others are, you might appreciate him more. Ben Mee was outstanding today and the only reason he hasn't ALREADY been picked for England is because he plays for unfashionable Burnley. Even Tarky is struggling to get in the England squad and you can guarantee that Pickford will start in goal for the next England game, even though Pope is head and shoulders better. If those three played for Man Utd, they'd play every game.

Actually didn't mean to 'Like' your post because Vydra was excellent when he came on. The game changed when he did and we looked far more likely to score. OK, he missed a chance but Wood missed a sitter. Why not have a go at him?

Our team plays really well tonight but you don't want to mention that, you would rather try to pull our captain apart. Yes it was a bad decision from Ben Mee for the penalty but he was rock solid tonight as he usually is.

Who would you play with Tarky if Ben Mee isn't good enough for our team?

I think if you look at the tackles Ben has made that ended up as penalties, you would see that most were due to someone else's error beforehand.

Why should I go and watch another team? That really is a stupid, pitiful comment to make. Once again, just for the stupid among us, it's got fa to do with my appreciation of him as one of our players.
Incidently, Tarks has been picked to join the squad the past few times they've got together, but he's had to pull out.
Pope is a squad regular.

Well if you don't want to change teams, try to appreciate the one you've got. Ben Mee is untouchable. Just about every pen he's ever given away, was because someone else f*cked up before him, as was the case today.

No, Tarks hasn't been in recent squads, probably because he was having some inconsistent games, especially when Sarfgate was watching. Yes Pope was there, but he should have been playing ahead of Pickford in the opinion of many.

Who’s pulling our captain apart? All I've said is that the penalty he gifted was poor, which you agree with, and that he'll never be a England international. That's it, that's all I've said. Why are so many supposedly intelligent blokes going on like women on the rag? (Apologies to any females on here, truth is I've never known women on the rag go on as bad as some on here ).

Years back, on coronation Street, Hilda Ogden won a prize of a stay in a posh hotel. And when she came back, she told Bet Lynch about a little bit of sugar that hadn't been washed off a cocktail glass. Which, as Bet said, was because she was the type of person who liked things just a little better if they weren't perfect and she could pick a hole.

No Ney (sic) Never is like Hilda Ogden. Just accept it, or ignore him if you can't. It's no big deal.

If Ben Mee was that good do you honestly not think someone would have come in for him, like they did with Keane/Trippier?

Maybe after he had missed the ball by a couple of minutes he might have kept his boot down but he instinctively took his back leg. Can’t complain about the decision to award the penalty. It happens.

Ben consistently gets to balls he has no write to get to. Yesterday he was covering for Taylor who was stranded upfield. It never ceases to amaze me how little a lot of our fans know. This should be a thread about how he so nearly made a brilliant challenge. He makes so many challenges he is bound to come a cropper more often than most. We are lucky to have him.

Jesus wept!

Might I suggest that bearing in mind football teams win and lose possession that every single penalty ever conceded will have someone making an error prior to the player committing the foul to give away the penalty.

It was a ridiculous tackle by Mee. He has gotten away with a few in recent weeks and today his luck ran out.

The frustration is that it completely changed the game. I can’t remember Pope making a save of any note (because we defended well) yet we gifted them a goal.

Also, did Pope not start the last England game or have I imagined that?

Yes, a nothing match but I'll bet Pickford starts the next.

As for Ben Mee, he misjudged a tackle having been left in a sh*t position by others but according to you it was a ridiculous tackle. What was he supposed to do, let him stroll through and score without even trying to stop him? Richard Head.

It was a shocking tackle and he will know it. In slow motion so the Spurs player had plenty of time to find a little contact.
He should either go for the block or run on the angle to slow the Spurs player down.

He played well for most of the game though and has bounced back from poor performances already this season.

It was a qualifier so a ‘competitive’ game.

He has to play in them before he can play in a World Cup final......that’s how it works!

As for Richard Head, grow up you prick!

You're the one that wants to grow up. Players make mistakes under pressure and Mee had been put under pressure by his own team mates. Why not blame them instead? Or why not blame Pope for diving the wrong way for the Penalty? Games are won and lost on slight errors and Mee's takle was a fraction from being a good one.

Mee has taught Keane and Tarky how to play CH and without him, we'd be a much weaker team. Try appreciating that instead of slagging Captain Ben off becuse he made you cry. Do you think that you're the only one who was disappointed at the result?

Miles better? He’s simply not.

He’s played how many PL seasons for Burnley now? Players that are better than most don’t play that long for a team like Burnley. Compare him to Trippier, Keane or Ings. 1 PL season is all it took before someone came and took them away.

It’s just claret tinted specs nonsense. Brighton fans will say Dunks one of the best. Wolves, Coady, Newcastle laselles, etc etc
You think Keane is better than Mee? I guess you haven't watched him since he joined Everton then?

Yep remember when it used to be players like Jensen, Eagles, Edgar and McDonald who were the scapegoats. I guess some fans just cant help themselves
Good effort but sadly a little too late, that one's already been done.

Yet John Stones somehow manages to keep getting picked for England despite the whole world knowing he's an accident waiting to happen.
Different position obviously, but same for Pickford, Chilwell, Dier, etc

If Ben Mee was that good do you honestly not think someone would have come in for him, like they did with Keane/Trippier?
Is it made public every enquiry about our players?

I remember when we had a run on the scapegoat being the left back, didn't matter who was there, they got the blame for everything apart from the fall of man...

That's because we'd not had a good left back for about a million years until Ward showed up.
