  1. Must be pretty gutting to twice help get teams promoted to the prem and never make it himself
  2. As a gay man myself i sometimes joke that following city and going to games is the most masculine thing i do. Well that and following formula one. But the main issue is education or the lack of it, as a society we are still feeling the effects of section 28 from the Thatcher government where schools were banned from ‘promoting homosexual relationships’ as if people have a choice about who they are, but the consequences are that a stigma existed that it was somehow unnatural. It’s never been an issue for me the lack of gay players, mainly because I’m there to watch the football and hopefully a city win and couldn’t care less who the players have a relationship with, but think the floodgates could be about open once that stigma has gone. So fair play to whoever it is wanting to be open about who they are. Saying that I’ve sometimes cringed particularly when playing Brighton hearing the chants of ‘does your boyfriend know you’re here’ not because I’ve been offended but because it’s such an embarrassingly lazy stereotype
  3. Australia probably should’ve been awarded it as suddenly not having hosted before became a criteria, obviously not included the bribe criteria. But they were never going to win as the tume difference wouldn’t have suited the tv companies
  4. Twitter rumours that he’s heading to West Brom
  5. As someone who lives not far from there the word on the street is it was caused by someone having a bbq on a wooden balcony. So while the structure may have been modern the persons braincells certainly weren’t
  6. Except sky no longer has the rights to the 1230 Saturday games so likely to be a hoax
  7. Was also instrumental in getting the ban of English clubs in Europe overturned so was a friend of English football
  8. It’s too simplistic to just blame the fans as other elements also played a part that night. Such as the final being held in a stadium that was in no fit state such an event or ticketing that bordered on the naive. One things for sure UEFA were very very quick to wash their hands of any accountability, something they have continued to do successfully ever since. Heysel should never have happened and some paid the ultimate price for when hooliganism combined with incompetence and greed
  9. That only works when club is a similar size to Swindon, both Chelsea and Spurs were found guilty of similar offences after Swindon and both got away with a fine
  10. Maybe some of the money could go towards upgrading the academy to cat 1, would be worth it for the entertainment value of drawing the gas in the checkatrade or whatever they call it these days trophy
  11. I’ve seen a lot on here since the Derby defeat about a lack of winning mentality, but honestly i can’t remember a season where we’ve won so many points and games coming from behind. Last night may have been dire until the penalty save but it showed guts and character which we haven’t always shown down the years. So even if we do miss out it shows we’re not far away and besides we never seem to beat Leeds anyway
  12. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/02/17/cardiff-city-may-sue-nantes-negligence-pilot-emiliano-sala-crash/ Looks like Cardiff are now looking at ways of getting out of paying the transfer fee now, all very ironic given the criticism they have Nantes for starting legal action to get their first instalment All getting very nasty and no sides here are coming out with any credit
  13. I remember a Cambridge away game where that was sung as well as ‘if you’ve all shagged Devon’s missus clap your hands’ tbf to him Devon clapped to that one too
