  1. Has previous with Villa from a game against palace the season before last and apparently hasn’t refereed Villa since Obviously he wouldn’t have got away with any of that had it not been a friendly but he did seem to be trying too hard not to look like he favoured us
  2. Maybe it’s time there was a rule that you can’t poach another teams manager once the seasons started and have to appoint someone not in a job or promote from within instead To lose a manager at this stage is ridiculous
  3. She then might have to get a job rather than constantly go on holiday so sticking with him is the least worst option
  4. Several times although in fairness there’s some who are beginning to see their owners role in all this
  5. Wouldn’t gross misconduct mean they wouldn’t owe him anything?
  6. Don’t forget with Norwich won the title in 2019 they weren’t highly fancied, there’s always a surprise team in the hunt
  7. That’s assuming he still wants to be captain of course and how it’s managed
  8. We just seem to have lost the ‘that’s motor racing’ attitude, maybe the way it’s gone is reflecting society in general but had it been Senna and Mansell coming together at Copse on Sunday you wouldn’t have had a Ron Dennis or Frank Williams demanding a penalty or race suspension they’d have left it to the drivers to sort out Scary thing is despite being in my 40’s I’m sounding like a grumpy old man saying ‘back in my day’
  9. We need fewer penalties rather than more, we didn’t see these in the Senna Prost era for example apart from the politically motivated one at Suzuka in 1989 which gifted Prost the title and that incident played a part in what happened at the same circuit 12 months later, neither did we see them in the Schumacher Hill era which had controversial collisions such as Adelaide 1994 and silverstone 1995 Remember Senna’s famous quote, if you no longer go for a gap you’re no longer a racing driver Penalties should be serious transgressions rather than for hard racing which we’ve seen in the last two races. And for the rest let the drivers sort it out for themselves rather than doing the f1 equivalent of surrounding the referee. It’s in danger of making the racing as fake as drs is The collision Sunday has been coming for a while, Lewis having previously looked at the bigger picture and backed out couldn’t keep doing that and maybe Max will also learn from what happened although for that to happen Red Bulls management need to take off their rose tinted glasses where their driver is concerned which is unlikely given they were exactly the same when Sebastian was their driver who incidentally has grown as a person since leaving Red Bull even if his performances haven’t always matched
  10. It’s been designed with Max in mind which is why both Gasly and Albon struggled so much Anyway Karun Chandhok described the crash best, both drivers could’ve done more to avoid contact but neither did so was a racing incident but as one side obviously came off a lot worse maybe the penalty was fair. Meanwhile Christian Horner is the Arsene Wenger of F1, doesn’t see it when his driver does anything but screams for a penalty when its anyone else
  11. For me the problem has always been the hype the media generate during a tournament followed by hangers on like the prime minister last night that’s more of an issue than brexit. Then when it comes to an end there’s a big crash and things like domestic violence are known to go up when England have crashed out of tournaments Hopefully the cycle can be broken by winning on Sunday otherwise there’ll be a bigger crash than usual and then when other tournaments come round it can be less of a hyped frenzy and you don’t have to hear it’s coming home everywhere you go
  12. What happened between 1997 and 2004/5?
  13. I happened to cycle past a pub yesterday where people were signing this loudly and it just sounded so cringey, why can’t England fans sing something that’s positive like the welsh and scots fans seem to manage to
