  1. Don't be a dick mate. This is her workplace,so no, she shouldn't have to cope with a few meatheads asking her to take her top off when she is there to look after sports injuries. I despair sometimes at how slow people are to accept that this is plain wrong. If your wife or daughter went to work, and some random went up to her and said 'Hi - can I see your tits' - I doubt you would be happy? Same for her mate, same for her.

  2. Contact does NOT equal a foul. That frame of the photo might be a tiny bit of contact, and as the frames continue, Naismith’s leg is then making contact with fresh air as Teteh is past him. It might be enough for Teteh to feel it, but not to go down. And his delayed reaction was “oooh, I’ve been touched I’ll now fall over”.

  3. Apologies if this has been discussed already and another apology as this isn’t City related but I’m baffled as to how Forest seem to be not only buying lots of players (16 now) but also spending quite large amounts of money for a newly promoted club that have a ground not really that much bigger than Ashton Gate. How are they able to do this? I’ve never liked Forest for some reason as they always seem to be one of these clubs that the media seem to kiss the ass off because of Brian Clough and have fans that think they belong in the prem because they won the European cup a couple of times 40 years ago. I’m basically wanting them to get thrashed every week and will be peeved if they stay up because they are basically over spending beyond there means. Rant over

  4. Really? I only ever see the opposite from our fans. Don't think I’ve ever seen a City fan claim we have amazing away support in that w@nky way Gasheads do on a regular basis? City fans will either rage on Social Media about us taking 600 somewhere OR try to give a reason why the numbers may be low for particular fixtures. Gasheads will celebrate taking 600 away and claim they’re the envy of clubs up and down the land with such ‘huge’ numbers.

  5. He also nailed it when appearing on Never Mind The Buzzcocks. He gave as good as he got. When the credits started rolling at the end, Mark Lamarr got out of his chair and went straight over to Darius to shake him by the hand.a great gesture and totally deserved.

  7. Same. I also remember Hereford away (think it maybe was just after Boxing Day?) in 1982, we were bottom of the entire football league then & had only won 2 games all season. Loads went, many of the old Park End lot were in fancy dress, absolutely hilarious to see it all kicking off with people dressed as the Lion from the Wizard of Oz, a nun, coppers & a group of construction workers. Saw a bloke who was dressed as a monk getting thrown out. We won 3-1 & the reaction at the end of the game was like we’d won the league.

  10. You do get that Pearson’s words (Rant ?. ) was not just about the Freeman / Sykes incident , or even the refereeing in the Luton Game, but about the general standard of refereeing You got the bit regarding the letter from the Match Officials Organisation that Hulls penalty should not have been awarded and we should have been awarded two in the same game ? , just for example

  11. Just a thought that if travelling to the game on Sunday up to 5 of you can travel by First bus for £10 instead of the normal £15: Buy on the app and apply the code Summer22. No time restrictions during school holidays, but apply outwith. You can also forward buy so ideal for either travelling to games or going out for the day with friends and family.

  13. And yet we have had a letter confirming that it was not a penalty. That presumably rests in part on the guidance given to referees that contact does not necessarily mean a foul and that there must be genuine consequences. Guidance the match referee presumably hadn't read or chose to ignore.

  21. https://twitter.com/bcfcpezza/status/1560356699856408576?s=20&t=I13MPrMFxNs1P5gsaNIXPg Alright guys, I have calculated the standard deviation as a result of this thread. It turns out to be 8.509172754 standard deviations away from the mean, this equates to a probability greater than 1 in 390,682,215,445 as thats the highest standard deviation to probability combination i could find on the internet (7 standard deviations). Whilst yes, i have used a particular date to set it from, it still shows something that should be almost nearly impossible. If you see that i've gone wrong on any of the maths feel free to correct me.

  23. Freeman attacked Sykes from behind . It could have created a life changing damage to Sykes . Go research whip lash as you keep repeating total nonsense that Freeman was not doing anything bad. He attacked from behind with brutal force . Do that on a Saturday night and you will end up in court . It is very different if players are facing each other . It was a dangerous action that could have resulted in substantial injury . That is a red card . It was violent conduct . Before he set off , he was protesting to the ref , so was hardly injured , yet chose to attack another player . I have seen first hand the damage a violent push from behind can do . You are way way off the mark . That person ended up with a fractured neck and was partially paralysed for many years . It has no place in football and should not be brushed under the carpet as you are doing .

  32. I didn’t agree with your assessment of City’s performance after the sending off H, but I do agree with your comments about the ref. There’s an awful lot of hysteria about refereeing standards, but you never hear a manager complain when their team benefits from a wrong decision! The fact is that refs call it as they see it, and how often do fans get it wrong? Refs are not incompetent, they’re not biased, but without VAR they have a split second to make a decision and when the situation is unclear, inevitably they will sometimes get it wrong. I’ve looked at the Atkinson penalty shout several times and even with the benefit of slow-mo and freeze frame I’m not certain it was a penalty. The fact is that the game relies on respect for the ref at all levels (there are major problems with numbers of available referees in grassroots football because of referee abuse) and for Pearson to talk about retiring because of the poor standard of refereeing is, frankly, a bit ridiculous.

  38. Do we have multiple fans that say we have the best fans or highest numbers in the Championship? Do we have fans that regularly say we need a bigger Stadium even though we rarely sell out? Maybe just me, but they do seem to be properly obsessed with the numbers, and now they are being shown up they say "ah, yeah but look at the percentage up against our home games", and as stated on here, that just proves how shocking their home attendances truly are.

  39. Yeah you do have a point and you have made it well. My point is that this is a thread aimed entirely at ridiculing that lot, there is no need for self-appraisal. Just wave or wiggle your willy at them. It seems healthy enough.

  40. Also that they are not good with maths. Has it occurred to them that the lower their home gates get, if their away support remains constant the ratio goes up? Effectively celebrating those shite home gates then.

  42. Thought them playing with Woodrow and Clark as a pair of no10s with just Osho as the centre midfielder made life easier for us. We knew we were gonna have to get around the nod downs / loose balls, and Massengo and Scott did that well. Also Sykes and Dasilva got close to Vyner and Atkinson respectively and nipped loads of ball away from them. But with the ball, as soon as anyone picked a pass through their “front four box” we basically had men over, that Osho didn’t know whether he was coming or going. Not least with Weimann dragging him around. Naismith in particular threaded some good balls through.

  43. I thought it was a good listen. Thank you. I regularly listen and enjoy it. I don’t agree with everything (surely that’s normal?). The post-Luton pod was positive and upbeat… so was I as I left the ground. Sometimes it’s negative and downbeat, often even… but then, often I’m negative and downbeat on leaving the ground… again that’s normal isn’t it? Keep up the good work @headhunter

  44. Cardiff getting another clean sheet at WBA. Took another injury in defence, where Odowda came on and played LB. Apparently excelling again. Cardiff fawning over his performances. Seems Cardiff have a tactic of playing out from the back. And sometimes it gets them in sticky situations. I'm hoping we start with the same front 3 as we did against Luton and press them hard.

  45. I still feel free things will settle to a more predictable shape after ten games or so. Norwich, Burnley and Boro will start moving up, Rotherham and Reading will move down and Blackburn will settle somewhere in the middle of the table. Having said that, West Brom appear to have carried their mediocrity over from last season and there are reasons to think Luton and Huddersfield could have much poorer seasons this time around. Nice to have the unpredictability whilst it lasts and it would be nice if - at the very least - there are no runaway teams in the top two places who steamroll the league. (Unless its us!)
