Don't understand the #nffc fans who have a downer on Lansbury when he consistently puts in effort and one of a few with genuine talent!— Stanos Giannakopolos (@MattStanBrown) November 26, 2016
Lansbury gonna start playing now to get his move in January? #nffc— Mr Forest (@Mister_Forest) November 26, 2016
Annoying thing about last night... Why can't Lansbury play like that week in week out, he'd be a top top player if he could #nffc— Gaz Brown (@Gaz23Brown) November 26, 2016
#nffc only trouble with a Lansbury hat trick is the inevitable distraction and sniffing from the likes of Burnley.— Brazilrentmyhouse (@BrazilRMH) November 26, 2016
Montanier should keep his job. Players obviously like him. Lansbury scores goals further forward & Osborn is class in the middle #NFFC— Jordan Wainwright (@wainwright1992) November 26, 2016
