  1. No smoking in the stadiums now. Nothing worse than having to breathe in other people's smoke.

    Match Fixing

    How low we talking? How'd you know? Massive shame if that is the case.

    Match Fixing

    Ex Man City player guilty of match fixing Former Premier League player Dickson Etuhu has been found guilty of attempting to fix a match in Sweden's top division by an appeals court. He played for other clubs such as Norwich, Sunderland, Blackburn and Fulham. Quite surprised this sorta thing doesn't happen more often. You'd like to think people play the sport out of love, but no doubt that someone offering you a large bung, to those not highly paid in football, might be tempting. I'm glad he's been caught, but no doubt there were others involved aswell.
  4. He definitely wasn't offside. Just like the Sheff Utd player yesterday wasn't offside, despite it being given. Neither were offside.
  5. I'm all for bashing posters when they say something stupid, but jesus, the irony in your post. Think you and others should give RR a break, it's borderline bullying. As RR has said arrogantly said many a times, he has thick skin, but I for one can't stand the constant bashing of certain posters when it's not necessary and bringing up the past at every single occasion. That to me sounds a lot like bullying. Whether 12 years old or 60 years old. We're meant to be a community, a family, and like most families, we can't pick our members! And sure as hell won't always agree and get along. But give it a break. I think the point RR is making is actually a good one. We've got the best person possible to be our SLO, we just need to club to back him 100% and allow him to do his job, something the other SLO's evidently weren't able/allowed to do. I wish this guy all the best. I just hope that by making this appointment the club is signalling its intention by having an SLO that knows the club inside out, has been a fan for over 30 years and will do everything within his power for the club and the fans. Don't expect miracles, but I DO expect him to be on here, as this is the single biggest platform to engage with fans and simply a no brainer for me.
  6. He's been banned home and away, because he was drinking alcohol with the pitch in sight? If so, that might be the rules, but extremely over the top and heavy handed, and quite frankly, damn right pathetic.
  7. I personally don't see how Derby have got a leg to stand on. Whether he's the captain or not, doesn't give ground to treat him harsher than the others, especially as he wasn't driving. They're all absolute knobs, and I have no sympathy for any of them, however I think all 3 should suffer the same punishment (or the driver gets a harsher penalty). This is so obviously about Derby trying to save more money, they'll literally stop at nothing, even though it makes their club look disgraceful.
  8. In all fairness, why should there be a 'settlement'? Cardiff agreed to buy a player for X amount. The fact he didn't get to play a game for them due to tragic circumstances is neither here nor there. They agreed a fee, they now need to pay it. If I was the owner of the selling club, no way would I agree to anything less than what was agreed. Edit - and if anything, I'd look to sue them for withholding funds owed to them!
  9. Massive understatement. They come out of this absolutely stinking of shit. Disgusting what they're doing to try and get out of a relatively small transfer fee, given the sums of money they would've received from reaching the Premier League. Sadly, I think a lot of clubs would've taken this sort of action, as it seems money is everything to them.

    I wouldn't normally wade into such debates, but do think removing an entire thread, based on it potentially 'promoting' the image I think is daft. There's no way in hell, someone posting an image, is promoting it. It's showing the rest of us, what the subject matter is about. So now, instead, people have to Google it to find out exactly what the thread is referring to. Look, it's a braindead idea by some low life scum who came up with the idea to create these 'cards' or whatever, but we should be able to debate it without threads being edited or removed, surely?
  11. Let's be honest, not many people can sadly afford to give hundreds to charity..

    I'm only going to comment on the first part of your statement... But how can you question the morale compass of solicitors? Every man and woman in this country, regardless of the crime they've allegedly committed, has the right to seek legal advice when charged. Their job, is to either defend, or prosecute. They're not there to be the judge or jury. Sure, there are some crimes where solicitors will refuse to represent someone. But the trial doesn't go ahead without fair representation. And as much as I think some of our laws are so bloody soft, where the punishment doesn't fit the crime, I'm glad we live in a country where you hear both sides of the argument. All the evidence, and a jury decides the verdict. It's certainly not for us to question the solicitors, who are only doing their job.

    True but common sense would say its best not being seen out in a casino if its all in the press that you've pulled out because of 'illness', especially when he's been teetering on breaking into the England squad. I don't get why you'd pull out, then go to a casino? Surely every English player has the dream of playing for their country?
  14. Think we need to get some movement going or something for the Ashton Gate 8. How can we have a statue of Atyeo but not of those who saved our club? Pearce really does nail home how close we came, these guys need to be remembered forever. And he's right, if we ALL chip in £1, we can get a statue and remember them properly.
