  1. Marinovic wasn’t dire. He fluffed 3 kicks, two because he surely can’t have been used to the pace of the championship and the quality of the strikers. Made a few good saves, commanded the area, would’ve kept a clean sheet if Lloyd Kelly hadn’t smashed one in his own net. Granted he wasn’t the level of Niki or Bentley, but he wasn’t dire.
  2. Have you read any of the posts? People are not saying he’s played amazing against Brazil. Everyone has said he has scored a penalty against Brazil, that’s good. the only over-reaction has been you.
  3. But no-ones saying he played amazing and must lead our attack for the next 10 years. People have just recognised that our player has scored an international goal against Brazil and that is a good thing, regardless if it's a penalty, came off his backside or was a 30 yard screamer. It's the sort of thing Fam will look back on his career and tell his grandkids that "I scored against Brazil".
  4. I got confused by that too! Spent the first 5 minutes of the game cheering the wrong team! City just got a mention though for one of the Portuguese players played for us a couple of years ago.
  5. I like the that fact that when he does claim a cross or shot he's the first to the edge of the area looking for a quick throw, and due to how smart Andi is, he recognises this and is off like a flash into space.
  6. Saying a white person looks like another white person is not racist. Saying a black person looks like another black person is not racist. Saying a black person looks like a cartoon character designed to highlight the stereotypical features of a black person? It’s not the same. I don’t believe Silva is racist or meant this as a slur against black people, but to post it on Twitter the week after Lukaku receives racist abuse, during a time where his team mate Sterling receives racist abuse is stupid. He should get a slap on the wrist and told how stupid he has been and to keep personal jokes with mates on private chats.
  7. Yes it is? There is no difference in saying that my friend looks like Cleveland Brown from Family Guy because he's black, got a solid body frame and has a sort of afro and that my other friend looks like Peter Griffin because he's fat, has a big chin and is white. There is an issue if I said my friend looks like the Portuguese cartoon characature of a black person because he is black which is what the problem with what Bernardo Silva has said.
  8. a) no-one has said Silva is racist. Just that he was stupid to joke like that on such an open forum such as Twitter when racist abuse has been highlighted recently due to a lot of racist abuse towards players. b) Does working with anti-racist charities means he can compare black people to a negative stereotype cartoon? c) if he has done so much charity work, why didn't he tweet about that instead of that cartoon?
  9. Comparing black people to black people is not racist. Comparing black people to what is essentially a golliwog. Probably best keeping it between them.
  10. As people have said if it was a private WhatsApp chat there would be no issue, but Bernardo Silva obviously has no brain if he has tweeted that in the current climate around racism on Twitter. The issue is, he has likened him to a cartoon which was created to imitate the stereotype of black people from the congo. The comments above about what if a white person was likened to Popeye or Zinchenko was said to look like the Milky Bar Kid - these are not stereotypes. They are cartoons which is saying Zinchenko has pale hair and looks young, not cartoons created to insult or belittle white people.
  11. Working in a super market was great. I was a bit older than yourself but we employees 16 &17 year olds in the evening for the tills. It really helps with your confidence to talk to people and definitely brought me out of my shell. Also, you meet loads of people and the available shifts are normally quite regular.
  12. You tried to create debate? Your 1st comment was “and?”... what sort of debate does that start? It’s a sarcastic reply. Your 3rd post was more of a debate starter. If you want a debate, have a think about how you start it and you might get some interesting conversations going.
  13. He should be having a look at his own team with all their rolling around, trying to get our players booked and sent off after any sort of tackle. Ayew spent more game on the floor than actually trying to play football!
  14. Just wondering what the difference between the Ndidi disallowed goal and the one Assombalonga scored against use? The Boro was judged as correctly allowed as Moores header was poor so it's a 2nd phase of play, despite the fact the ball was always intended to go to Britt. The Leicester player has a shot in which another player was offside, Gazzinga saved it, poorly, and it fell to the offside player and eventually ruled as offside. Surely the Spurs goalies poor touch is the same as Moores so is it not a 2nd phase? Whats the difference?
