  1. Just did a posh shop at Waitrose. Absolutely disgusted that they have an express checkout of their own! Then again, you can't blame the store for wanting to get any sags out of there as soon as possible.

  3. I really don't want to trivialise a very serious issue which I do happen to have a decent knowledge of tbf but so many MEN talking so much shit right now it’s embarrassing. “The club losing it’s historical identity” what the absolute **** is that steaming hot pile of shit statement all about?

  4. Honestly in my view taking such a morally absolute position on this, to the point of deciding not to follow the club anymore, is baffling. Not only has he served his conviction the woman involved in the incident has literally told the world not to pass judgement on the man he was six years ago and saying how proud she is of him, and how much his daughter has enjoyed training with him recently. Why some feel the need the play judge, jury and executioner on complex matters as these I will never know. I’m finding the liberal left cancel culture ideology is reminiscent of the moral absolutism you find on the front pages of the right wing tabloid newspapers such as the News of the World. It’s based on sweeping moral judgements without knowledge of all of the facts and it’s stopped people from being able to look at each individual on a case by case basis.

  6. The singer was a poorly paid care worker before the band took off. He grew up caring for his disabled mother in a single-parent household. I'm not a big fan of the music, but he's hardly Jacob Rees-Mogg.

  9. When the fun stops, stop. Supporting Danny Simpson, isn't fun for me. I won't get entertainment from cheering on a convicted abuser. Therefore there's no point in me investing time and money and emotional capital into an entertainment company that no longer entertains. I will not be following City anymore.

  13. Something slightly different to help you get through the international break. Jon Beavis, the drummer from Bristol-band IDLES joins OSIB. We discuss the band's meteoric rise, the years of misery it took to get there, his favourite gigs and his inability to stage-dive. Not a huge amount of Bristol City chat in this one, but a great interview nonetheless! If you've not heard their music, I suggest you check it out. http://linktr.ee/osibpodcast

  19. No it’s not but she was involved so knows a lot more than any of us . Plenty of experts on here calling the club a disgrace for signing him without knowing the facts. I personally haven’t given my opinion on it because guess what . I DON’T KNOW THE FACTS

  21. My wife worked in both sides (ie perpetrators and victims) of domestic abuse for 20 years. I can quite confidently say that “one off” domestic abuse cases are almost as rare as rocking horse shit. Seriously.

  22. From Monday organised sport is allowed to restart. Next Saturday some local leagues are starting mini leagues for 4 or 5 matches. Gfa cup finals from last season are starting to be played. Hopefully this signals an end to the misery and suffering which we've been through with brighter times ahead. It's a bit sad but I've realised that apart from the health and well being of my family the thing which gives me the biggest lift is watching or being involved in sport. Nothing like the buzz or excitement of a close match . Going forward I will certainly appreciate more the things we do have . Much as I like walking I'm not sure the legs will take much more to fill my weekends. Oh to be stood on the side of a pitch in freezing rain. Next Saturday you will be able to go to park and have a sneaky watch of the football, just say your taking the kids to play on the swings.

  25. Indeed, to quote from someone else's post: "Not only has he served his conviction the woman involved in the incident has literally told the world not to pass judgement on the man he was six years ago and saying how proud she is of him, and how much his daughter has enjoyed training with him recently." Should we not respect the view of the woman wronged?

  26. Good point. Some have been trying to draw a parallel with the Orr, Brooker case. Well firstly fighting bouncers outside of a pub certainly isn’t clever but for me it isn’t remotely in the same league as beating a woman. Secondly Orr became a born again Christian after the incident & appeared genuinely remorseful, this individual continued to give it the big “I am” and got out of his community service. It sends out a terrible message, especially after recent events.

  33. I’m really uncomfortable about this for all the reasons others have said. As well as being an abuser he also just seems like a bit of a knob. Turns up at a charity shop to do his community service in a Lamborghini, and then moans about people taking pictures. Gets into very public social media spats with other mouthy footballers. And slightly worrying that he was part of a Leicester side that made headlines for their off field activities generally, including allegations of racist abuse of sex workers on trip to Thailand. (He wasn’t part of that trip, but only because of his DA case going on at the time) Which brings me to my other concern that hasn’t really been mentioned; we are very clear as a club that it’s our academy players, our young players, that are our future. I’m not sure that I want them coming through their introduction to first team squads and football being influenced by the idea that successful footballers are like this guy seems to be. We might joke about the whole DNA thing, but it’s not without merit. Yes, he might be a reformed character. Regretful of what he’s done. But there’s not much evidence of it out there, and would it be hard for him to say?

  34. Of course you are entitled to your view. However to me the complete lack of remorse shown at the time is key here. If he hadn’t looked to get out of his pitiful sentence of community service & done something to atone, like make a large donation to Women’s refuge charities (don’t say how do we know he didn’t, it would have been part of the rehabilitation plan in the media if he had), but he tried his best to avoid his punishment. Secondly I am not denying his right to work I just don’t think he should do for us. He can deliver pizzas if he wants a job. Finally point, that “cancel culture, lefty” comment by someone else, just **** off.

  35. Unsure on this deal. Not sure what benefit it gives us by signing him, only see potential downside with his convicted allegations. for me a talented ageing footballer with serious convictions over his head. If what he has been convicted for is true (which I believe is the case) then I think it’s morally a poor decision. I trust Nige in his recruitment and some part of me likes that this shows he’s going to get control over signings, but at the same time, I think at what cost? Do we sell integrity for our position? It’s something I don’t know I can agree with. I agree with innocent until proven guilty and he’s been found guiltily so I stick with my principles of not associating with him whatsoever, despite what I think about his girlfriend based on her testimony. the funny thing is Nige could literally employ 11 convicted criminals and if we got to the premiership, 80% of the fan base would be happy. For me, footballs more than just success. It’s about community, leadership, entertainment etc... these traits I value more than so called selling our soul for success

  38. Wow....and here’s my problem and the danger with some people/comments on here. You have dragged up and included an ‘alleged’ incident that he was absolutely not part of yet have associated him, some might say smeared, just because he was playing for Leicester at the time. The bloke was a knob for what he DID do but should not be further chastised for association in an event he clearly was not.

  40. Women’s Aid have removed the club from the Football against domestic violence campaign, which we originally signed up to with a great fanfare. Really poor decision by the club. I would like to know if the Board even discussed this issue. If they didn’t this is very remiss of them; if they did it is a reprehensible decision. The club is losing bit by bit its historical identity.

  44. Simpson has served his punishment, no reason he should keep being punished. On purely footballing terms makes every sense to have a good look at whether he might be a useful addition to the squad over the last 8 games. We all know Hunt needs improving on.

  47. Domestic abuse victims are often abused and assaulted many, many times before they have the courage to call for help either from the police or a support organisation. On average a domestic abuse victim would suffer 35 incidents of abuse / violence before calling the police for help (this figure is from memory 10 years old, it is probably higher now). Domestic violence victims will often be controlled and coerced emotionally and financially (not just physically) so serial abuse in a domestic violence context is not always easy to identify or prosecute. Domestic abuse perpetrators often attempt to minimise their behaviour and actions by blaming alcohol, drugs, upbringing, or anything else to deflect responsibility and/or blame the victim.

  48. Ched Evans was found ‘not guilty’ in his alleged rape trial - immoral and highly questionable behaviour does not mean he committed a crime. It was a very distasteful episode but for you to insinuate on a public platform that he is guilty of a serious offence is a bit reckless - you can read more here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-37659009
