  1. Last time I checked we were ravaged by injuries. The fact we are where we are in spite of our bad luck is credit to LJ and the team.
  2. Not sure I agree, it's more than possible to take a knock and not being anywhere near concussed. If it's an elbow or something (assuming accidental) why should the team be punished with having 10 men, or do you allow a temporary sub?
  3. True, and really abuse of any kind should be discouraged and stamped out but many will say it’s part and parcel of football. It can be particularly bad at that level like I alluded to earlier with the “intimate” grounds and close proximity of fans to the pitch. having read a bit more it seems like the keeper was abused and then another player whilst collecting the ball from the net after the penalty, and it was the manager who pulled the team off the pitch to protect them.
  4. I’m not saying that, I said it appears it did happen but there’s no proof or evidence yet. It’s also not been shared in the media exactly what was said, you’ve just guessed and made it up.
  5. I think it’s that “away from home” day out / no responsibilities mentality. Like they feel less likely to get court, tends to be more alchohol involved etc.
  6. You know for certain that happened? It appears it probably did, but no one has confirmed what was said so you’re making things up at this point. compared to a chant that definitely happened, and presumably was from a large number of people rather than one or a small number of idiots? You’re right that they aren’t the same, but both are terrible
  7. I’ll be honest I only know what I heard on the radio from the callers so I don’t even know the timings around the penalty etc. if that’s true then no idea? Seems strange. The only thing I would say at the level Yeovil are now at, some non league grounds are very “intimate”. Keepers can be closer to the fans than they are the edge of the box in some places, Security isn’t what it is at bigger grounds and I’ve seen things watching non league you’d never see at higher levels (players in the back of the net after a scrambled goal being attacked by fans, GKs being very aggressively abused etc). 100% pure conjecture here but I looked at the photos and this looks like a typical non league ground with fans very close to the pitch. It could be that the GK felt like his safety was at risk? Unlike in Bulgaria for example where, although much worse, none of the players were realistically at risk of physical harm.
  8. I think we agree here? Though in your last post you said Yeovil should be kicked out? Abusing someone who is black in ways and for reasons that have nothing to do with their skin colour is not racist and that’s why I think there needs to be an investigation into what was said and done before Yeovil are nailed to the cross.
  9. Why? What have Yeovil done wrong in this instance? I don’t condone any form of abuse like this, but first things first facts need to be established. What’s happened today appears to be very different to Bulgaria for example, where hundreds of fans very openly made nazi/similar salutes, monkey chants etc and then the coach tried to defend it. here Yeovil have not defended what happened, and there appears to be no witnesses so far that can back up what’s happened? I’m not going to say the GK made it up, but if only he heard it - especially if it was chanting as someone has suggested he said - then there needs to be an investigation but I don’t think you’ll get an answer. Yeovil should be warned and the game replayed, if anything reoccurs then Yeovil could be seen to have not dealt with it, but they can’t be held to account for not preventing something that they have never been associated with before (as far as I know)
  10. Does that make it right?
  11. A lot of Yeovil fans rang in to say that whilst there was a lot of abuse from fans behind the goal and bottles thrown, apparently none of it was racist. according to callers it was started by the goalkeeper spraying fans behind the goal with his water bottle. I’m going purer on what was covered by the radio but I think there needs to be some evidence before we start throwing a team out of a competition etc.
  12. What do you think they were insinuating with that chant?
  13. How do we know he was t on the radar either, could be reasons we didn’t / couldn’t get him.
  14. I can see them beating Liverpool, that’s the way things go in football!
