  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52665809 England captain Harry Kane has joined forces with Leyton Orient by sponsoring their shirts next season and donating the space to three good causes. Tottenham striker Kane, 26, made his senior debut for Orient in 2011. The club's home strip will carry a message of thanks to frontline workers tackling the coronavirus pandemic. Mental health charity Mind and Haven House Children's Hospice will have their logos on Orient's two change shirts as part of the deal. Kane was 17 when he joined Orient on loan from Tottenham and s

  2. I appreciate I’m on a forum about a club I dearly love, but does anyone else feel like I do, in that I really couldn’t give a **** about this season. If the new season starts in August, fine. If not, I don’t really care.

  3. Would love to see this, but I just cant see it being safe. Currently being discussed on GMB Firstly how can we justify testing every footballer when frontline staff still arent getting tests/results quickly enough? Our capacity for testing has dropped since we hit that debatable 100k target. 60k people tested on 11th May. Secondly, you cant trust fans not to congregate. People will meet in parks, round houses etc to watch the football. If Liverpool / Leeds are about to win their first league in years, do you think their fans will all stay at home and watch on their TV, in the hight o

  4. I'd be amazed if some half hearted games behind closed doors will be that much of a boost to be honest. I'd struggle to get the enthusiasm to watch them full stop.

  5. This guy, having to take a week off work. I doubt very much that it was because he was upset, probably more due to the fact that he's a massive Sag nause who has continually revelled in any misfortune we've had for years and years. He clearly knew that the opportunity for anyone else to give him some grief back would have been taken and relentless, and he knew he wouldn't have a leg to stand on. You can just imagine what he's like - every workplace has one... FTG

  6. That's the great thing about football though, every success is relative, our last minute promotion against Dagenham, or your last minute win against Manchester United, would have meant just as much-if not more- to us than an umpteenth Champions League to a Real Madrid fan.

  9. We went down there in Feb, just before this crap started, and looked at somewhere in Murcia. Decided it was too far so when it's all over will go back and look at a site near Alhaurin De La Torre where we used to live before. Problem is with this crap going on, if Doris pushes through brexit under the radar, our likelihood of getting residencia might not look so good. Will have to be patient and wait and see.

  10. That's fair Eddie but the Gers fans do exactly the same, they're both bad. 'Penny Arcade' was originally sung AFAIK to celebrate the shooting of a catholic amusement arcade owner in Belfast although it was years ago and is now a bit of an anthem. As someone born in Northern Ireland, I can't abide the sectarian stuff. I was over there last summer visiting family and am pleased to say it's a lot better but it still lingers hence my detestation of both factions. It really wouldn't take much for it to all kick off again and it's such a better place without it.

  11. For me it's that several of my school friends joined the services, some the army and sent in your to NI. Fortunately none of my friends were killed there, though one in Afghanistan, but they could have been. That sections of the Celtic crowd can get away with celebrating the deaths of what could have been a schoolfriend of mine without massive sanctions from that club (I know they give lip service to it but nothing ever changes) makes me intensely dislike the club itself. What if Gloucester City fans started celebrating the murders committed by Fred and Rosemary West and singing

  12. I thought that testing capacity was over 100k but there currently wasn't the demand for it? I disagree with the above posters. Football is coming back, whether we think that's morally acceptable or not. The UK gov has been making it clear that it wants professional football to return as a boost to the country. We'll be living alongside this virus for months if not years to come, so it's a decision of when football returns and not if. Yes, there's a risk - but there's a risk for everyone being asked to return to work around the country too. The government and sporting bodies clearly feel i

  13. I quite like- this isn't to say I support but I quite admire sides that rise from trouble or relatively little in modern times budget. Ajax rising again was quite nice to see. Atalanta in Italy- check their net spend and check that they rose off the back of selling academy prospects- similar to us and Brentford- and prosper with 3 at the back- similar to Wolves and Sheffield United. Pretty attack minded too, often plenty of goals- can easily be at either end! Borussia Dortmund under Klopp were pleasing as a neutral. Also falling into that category, Monaco under Jardim 3 seasons

  16. It was a really strange time for me. My daughter Molly had been born around 6 weeks before the tournament started, she was premature and weighed in at just 15 ounces and spent all of her short life at Southmead hospital. I was going to the games then travelling back and going to see her in the middle of the night (there was no restrictions on visiting hours for kids in the intensive care unit). There was this strange feeling of euphoria while I was at the games, tempered by the obvious worry about my daughter and looking back I view the whole tournament as marking a big change in how I view my

  19. Bless him...thinking a week later the piss taking will have died down and everyone would’ve forgotten about it You’re absolutely spot on, it gives me a very smug feeling inside thinking about all those Sagheads and what they must have felt after spending most of that season telling US we were definitely going down. All those times they celebrated us losing league matches in divisions above them against teams that would’ve put 10 past the Sags had they been the opposition and not us. Sag nause indeed, many workplaces have more than one...I never tire of telling them how much

  26. There's the big difference: born in NI so you saw both sides of it. In that situation I would have the same view as you. I'm not anti-Irish and I am certainly not anti-Catholic. I am however massively anti-Celtic. I'd say that a lot of people think that the latter implies the former but definitely not in my case.

  28. I don't need bitcoin as Ive made my fortune thanks to a couple of emails I've received recently. One, from the USA was from an attorney telling me that Im a beneficiary of a decades person's estate over there and just needs my bank account details so the money can be sent to me once the estate is finalised. The other, from Nigeria, was from a Prince who needs to move twenty million out of the country and just needs a UK bank account into which the funds can be transferred and for the use of my account will pay me a 10% fee. With all the email scams going around it's lucky that Im dea

  29. It does seem like a wind up doesn't it? I have to admit that I childishly took a picture of the huge Wankdorf Centre sign the first time I was there. Everyone still calls it that, it's named after the area of Bern. Fortunately they are changing the name back for next season anyway. I'm not Bernese but even I slightly resented it being called the Stade de Suisse when most people here speak German as a first language and we very rarely get national team matches anyway.

  33. I think what people often forget (understandably!) is how good the game had been even at 4-2. Mansfield went in front, only for us to equalise inside 14 seconds and then go ahead. They then came from behind to lead for a second time, having a man sent off and a penalty saved - albeit converted on the rebound - even before the late drama. And it was bottom v fourth in the league too! As daft as this'll sound, if it was a Premier League game it'd probably be regarded as one of the all-time classics in English football.

Bit controversial here but I really enjoyed the gas book bovver by chris brown ..I knew it was always going to be biased and a little ...ok massively economical with the truth - but as a historical document of this cities football scene ,music scene and pubs and clubs where it all took place I think it’s a good read ,with the various tribes from the sixties onwards it pre dates mr lumbers book by quite a few years . right I’ll just get my coat .....

I do agree that we need to slowly get back to normal if there’s no imminent vaccine or adequate testing, but can’t stand stupid people who create, believe and spread utter rubbish because of their ignorance. The people who are pushing us to get back out there were also probably celebrating VE Day on Friday, getting teary over Colonel Tom and clapping for the NHS on Thursday, which in my mind makes them hypocritical beca

  41. Look, the guy is responding to the fact that proportionally more black people die of Covina 19 than white people. He thinks it’s to do with blood type. Others say it’s vitamin D deficiency. Whatever the true reason, I’m not sure why people feel the need to be so offensive about him. There is an awful lot idiocy in the media at the moment, and this doesn’t strike me as most deserving of vitriol...
