  1. Only 4 in the football league though. If you want to include grounds played in before a club was a member of the football league then Fulham have played at at least 12 grounds and QPR have played in 14, so one of those teams is probably the record-holder.
  2. They also played at The Mount in Catford for a few years. Man Utd have hosted home league games at 6 grounds which is the most I know of: North Road Bank Street Old Trafford Maine Road Anfield Victoria Ground Spurs have also used 4 grounds as home grounds: White Hart Lane New Wembley Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Highbury As have Bradford: Valley Parade Odsal Elland Road Leeds Road And Middlesbrough: Linthorpe Road Ayresome Park Victoria Park Riverside Stadium
  3. What was it like taking your imaginary black wife to Ashton Gate?
  4. PM me the title. There's no need to fill up the thread with more irrelevant posts, but your initial statement was pretty wide of the mark so I'd be interested in finding out what your sources for it were.
  5. Yeah that's what I was referring to. Although if you look at their files this year you'll see no Man Utd in them - because Utd sent them a cease and desist letter I'd assume. And Kahn is now Jens Freund for some reason; Niko Kovac is his brother Max Freund aha
  6. The problem is that it's a very easy fix to get their proper name and badge in the game - one which they'll argue that Sports Interactive endorse. That's the part where they could have a case, and it could have a chilling effect on the game as a whole.
  7. We do take special measures for flu every year though including free vaccinations for all vulnerable people. And flu hasn't killed 60,000 people in the UK in a year for a long time. In fact it's not killed more than 30,000 people in a season since the late 1960s. Regardless, surely the long lockdown we're still in lets you see that this is slightly different from "a bad year for flu"?
  8. The thing about salary caps is that they work really well in closed-shop leagues where you have a regular supply of fresh talent and not much competition from abroad for players. But they don't work in a system with promotion and relegation. If we're talking about capping total team salaries, either you have a different cap for each league in a system (which massively disadvantages promoted clubs and causes issues when teams are relegated too), you have a set cap for all levels (which would be far too high for 90% of clubs to even notice it and would hence not prevent overspending), or you tie
  9. Because feeling justified is no excuse to manhandle and intimidate officials so that would send completely the wrong message.
  10. I've not read the court report from this case as I can't find it anywhere but this case almost certainly won't set a precedent. For a start there is a general principle under the law of negligence that footballers owe each other a duty of care on the pitch and that reckless tackles using excessive force breach that duty of care if damage is caused. There have been numerous cases decided on this point at both amateur and professional levels. At professional or semi-professional levels as the club is acting as an employer they become vicariously liable for the damage caused. The precedents are a
  11. You're almost completely right here. ETs only have to look at whether procedure was followed and if so whether a dismissal fell within a "band of reasonable responses" to the misconduct in question. It's pretty clear that fining the two drivers 6 weeks wages is within that range of responses, and it's also pretty clear that dismissing Keogh would be considered to be within that range too (albeit at the more extreme end). However, how other people involved in instances of misconduct were disciplined is directly relevant to whether a dismissal falls within the band of reasonable responses.
  12. AJIB is not an Islamic bank, it's just owned by Muslims.
