Just 30 hours after the Wembley surface was shredded by the NFL match

Better off playing it at Milton Keynes - full stadium and better playing surface. An embarrassment to the premier league and global audience— Johno ✖️ (@Talkinoutmyarse) October 29, 2018

Some saw the NFL markings as an opportunity for commentators to more accurately predict where the ball is in play;
At least commentators will be able to accurately describe the distance to goal for free kicks, Thunderbolts etc. None of this 35 yards out bollocks when it's more like 21.— TomTraubert (@TomTraubert2009) October 29, 2018
Others were quick to point out how the Wembley pitch is nothing compared to previous games...
Some however, are simply fed up of all the talk of the state of the pitch...
Anyone got a pic of the pitch at Wembley? Not sure we have seen enough of it.— John Brewin (@JohnBrewin_) October 29, 2018
