  1. Maybe but I can’t see it personally, it’s still way to many people in one place. Obviously in the end things will start back but I think next year
  2. There’s no way 20/21 season is going to be played as normal I.e. with fans in the ground, I can’t see that sort of normality for a long time as social distancing is not really possible. Therefore if you take that as red, and behind closed doors is the new normal, then you might as well finish this season off first.
  3. Appreciate all your comments, I just don’t like it, my answer to all the bullshit play acting and diving is if you were playing football with your mates and did it you would look like a dick, so why any pro worth his salt wants to do it in front of a stadium full of fans and millions watching around the world I don’t know.
  4. But if we all just accept that players have to dive to get a foul the game is gone surely? It’s embarrassing and the excuse of they have to do it is nearly as weak as how they look for me (I appreciate this is what they churn out in the media). What gets my goat is rugby fans mocking football fans about this and I have no real justification for it, which annoys me as I don’t like rugby fans belittling my fave sport! Im sure basketball has changed as well (This was noted in the doc) but football is Synonymous with diving and faking injury and as a football fan it gets my goat! After thousands have died and been seriously ill from COVID, I will have even less respect for a player who fakes injury to gain an advantage, I’d rather we lose than advocate it but I appreciate I’m probably in the minority
  5. Firstly great doc, was never a basketball fan but you cannot fail but be impressed with Michael Jordan, that 90’s Bulls team and what they achieved, so if you’ve not seen it then get on it! Watching the doc it really highlighted to me how hardcore the players train and play, and on the court they are hard to the core and take no messing. I’m in lead to believe this is no different today, in fact American sport in general is like this. However it highlighted to me how ‘some’ football players have changed in terms of not being hard on the pitch (the faking injury and diving) and actually how football in general seems to tolerate this behaviour as being part of the game, when for years it wasn’t. And with the current Covid situation, I wondered if fans will tolerate a player rolling around the pitch when not touched and diving to the floor faking injury, as for me it seems even more in bad taste and shows a weakness of sporting character in many ways. I know Basketball and Football are different games but it would be great to see a return to the professionalism and dedication to win at all costs without cheating in football as shown in this doc.
  6. My mate took his trumpet to a few games there and was playing the various England songs to get the atmosphere going
  7. Interesting when Michael Owen was asked about that goal at France 98 by Merson and he said that was his peak at 18 and that he couldn’t do what any of the other players could do at 28 as he was shot by then. I love that goal though, one of my fave World Cup memories, watched the game in the then Bohemia top of Whiteladies, was absolutely packed, an amazing atmosphere, a great summer!
  8. I went to that game, have the programme in the loft RIP buster, 100% certified club legend
  9. I video’d that at the time to send to my Rovers supporting friends, always makes me laugh! A week off work! Jesus
  10. My mum did our family tree and found out we are afield related to Walt Disney, she told me that was where I got my creative streak from! Don’t have any of his money though!
  11. How do you know Scott would keep the cash for himself? Most testimonials these days you read that the player donates every penny to charity, so if Scott did this then those stating that players shouldn’t have a testimonial as they have already earned loads of money playing football don’t have an argument
  12. Who’s voted no??? WTAF! He’s dedicated how many years of his life to the club, was a legendary player, if Scott doesn’t deserve one nobody does!
  13. 9 years ago on Facebook I posted this: To my Bristol Rovers supporting friends, bad luck and all that following your almost confirmed relegation to League 2 this afternoon. To the bloke who made the effort to watch the City v Hull playoff final up The Beaufort Hunt pub a few years ago, wearing his Rovers shirt and cheering when Windass scored the winner for Hull, "IN YOUR FACE" Happy times!
