  1. World Cup Playoffs (Merged)

    Bailey Wright on his way back from Honduras yesterday. Qantas chartered a direct jet back to Australia, exclusively for the team and their coaching staff. Economy was set up as a treatment room. This is a device that mimics daylight and transitions the players back to the Australian time zone without jet lag. The net gain of all of this is the Australian team will arrive in Sydney fully revived and over 24 hours before the Honduran team who had to fly commercial economy with quite a few stop overs. The second leg is on Wednesday night in Sydney.
  2. Bobby Reid song

    Not entirely for Bobby, but… We score all day, Defend all night, Cos we've got Reid and Bailey Wright, Yes, Reid and Wright. All sung to a slightly more upbeat and chanty version of this:
  3. Strange Injuries

    Giggs injured his hamstring by having too many fast cars: https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/why-a-fleet-of-flash-cars-left-giggsy-hamstrung-6351132.html
  4. Leko chant

    Leko's f###ing mental, Leko's f###ing mental, La, la, la, la. La, la, la, la.
  5. How far around the globe are we spread?

    As the name suggests, I'm in Sydney. I saw a guy in an old Puma City top at the beach about a month ago. I went up to chat, expecting to hear a Brizzle accent, but he was as Australian as they come. Only managed to have a few words before he was dragged off by his kids. About five minutes later, I realised it was Nicky Carle.
  6. Legalise hooliganism.

    This already exists under the name of TFC (Team Fighting Championships):
  7. Why do you support the City?

    Moved down to Nailsea from Glasgow when I was 10. My now step-dad realised I needed to support a local team so started taking me and my brother down to Ashton Gate. What makes it even more remarkable is that he is from Filton and a die-hard Gas Head, even playing for their youth team as a kid. He hated every minute of watching City with us, and as soon as we made new friends at school, he ditched us and let other dads take us - but I am forever grateful that he took us to see City, not Rovers.
  8. New England kit

    My take on the blue/grey shoulders was to look like a knight of St George. The white is the tunic and the blue/grey is the chainmail.
  9. 19th December. What happened..?

    The 152nd anniversary of Association Football?
  10. Mark 'Gobbledygook' Ashton

    Just chucking it out there then ducking for cover, but are the fans MA's real audience? Surely a large part of his role is to pitch the club to media, agents and potential corporate investors (through sponsorship, hospitality or the like). They all like the sound of a well structured plan delivered by a businessman in a suit. It fills them with confidence. LJ and the players can speak to the fans "on their level" - whatever that may be.
  11. Caption competition - go...

    "I can't wait to start playing with my hairy little Johnson." or "Oh my god, he's gone blurry. I think I've been playing with my Johnson too much."
  12. "we May Have To Sell Jet" - Sod

    Smart piece of management IMO. Telling JET we may have to sell him is basically saying "if you keep playing like this you'll be going to a big club" The effect is JET keeps banging them in, we establish a good league position and we sell him for a decent bit of cash. For our front line, it's basically saying "once JETs gone, we're going to need to fill that gap. If you start playing well, it's yours." The effect is they start banging them in. For the fans it's managing expectations ie: "Don't be surprised if he does go but we'll get good cash for him" or, if he doesn't go "I've managed to convince him to stay and we have a player that big league clubs are desperate for - get behind us"
