  1. Whilst this may be the case, I have to counter argue it (not with you Richard, but with the leniency of the law). If its your livelihood, and you get a driving ban, then as my dad would always teach me, tough shit. Serves you right for being a fool and you learn the hard way. Joey Barton has had more chances than most, and still hasn't learned. Ban him for 5 years. So what if that affects his job, he's got enough money, I'm sure he'll survive, but that doesn't even come into it, as you don't just go around punching people. If I did it in my office, I'd be sacked. Without a doubt, obviously. If we did it at Ashton Gate, we'd be banned. Don't see why he should be let off. He might learn to engage brain before his fists next time...but I doubt it.
  2. Dude, christ, the guy ISN'T insinuating anything. He's saying there are parents out there that sadly would put 2 + 2 together and come up with 5. Some people are just scumbags. Sadly, it's the world we live in. Slowly but surely, we're making views better, whether it's race, sexual preference, climate change, sexual harassment (#metoo movement) etc but calling for someone to be banned straight away, because you've taken it the wrong way is a bit extreme. Cowshed is giving an opinion or scenario, which has mustered up some debate/points etc. He's certainly not, from what I can tell, being homophobic or obscene. Let's not turn this into a witch hunt, purely because someone has tried talking about a scenario, which I don't believe is a veiled undercurrent or whatever the term was.
  3. Think that's normal for Vue cinemas now, thankfully. Sadly, it ain't the same for other cinemas though, as they're still massively overpriced.
  4. Am I the only one who can't see much in that video, apart from police with batons out and a few people running away? If there has been disorder/fighting, then they should be banned. But I'm not going to say England fans are a disgrace based on that video. We've got a hideous past, one that most of us would like to forget, but that video is hardly a flashback to the olden days.

    Think you should try doing a tad more research on just what went on... This show will educate some, in regards to what could happen if a nuclear power plant does explode... It isn't JUST an explosion at a power plant, it had the capability of changing Europe as we know it. The human sacrifice was incredible. The stupidity by the Soviets put millions at risk. And tried covering it up, of course. The sorta thing that still goes on today, sadly. I found it incredibly well done and highly fascinating.
  6. I beg your pardon? You might disagree with me, but think you should wind your neck in a tad as I'm more than entitled to my opinion. Baku has been hosted under the guise of bring football to the poorer nations, developing countries etc. No. It went there because they paid the most for it to be there. The political issues they've got, safety concerns along with human rights mean UEFA will clearly sell to the highest bidder, regardless of their policies. My point was the fact I can't imagine the security is as tight as it would be in somewhere such as England. I was making the point that, yes, we've had terrorist attacks here in London and elsewhere in Europe, but getting a bomb for example, going off at a final in Wembley would be so much harder than somewhere in Baku or elsewhere in the middle east. If you disagree and think they're both on par, fair enough. I'm sure security will be high, but not to the standard Western countries have in my view. But that's my view, and I'm sticking to it.
  7. Oh wow... Had no idea they were in such a mess. Why would someone buy a club and have no interest in paying the staff? Surely breaking all kinds of laws by doing so?
  8. That's absolutely disgusting that a final will be held in a place where, let's face it, I'm sure it's much easier to commit these sort of acts than if it was somewhere else. Big crowds are always a draw for terrorism, but FFS, does no one have a conscience at UEFA?! Holding it there doesn't make any f*cking sense at all, other than to line their pockets. The whole spiel about trying to reach out to other nations, fair opportunity etc is utter bull. Arsenal should pull out purely on the basis one of their best players has to miss it solely on the fact of the location its held at! If this was barca and Messi had to miss out, there would be uproar. And if arsenal lose, right or wrong, they'd be well within their means to say it was an unfair tie.

    Ajax vs Spurs

    Very bizarre comment. Clearly you don't like Liverpool. Not many do, but my god, as a football fan, regardless of the team, what Liverpool AND spurs have done is nothing short of f*cking incredible (as klopp would say).
  10. Yeah I heard that as well. Not sure why we weren't mentioned. Surely if you're trying to make something sound even more dramatic, which it is, you'd say it's a 3 way race for 6th... But obviously we're not as big as boro or Derby clearly, hence why we didn't get the mention. Strange.
  11. But having 6 outfield players is enough, surely? You can only make 3 subs after all. Having the 7th sub as a keeper is an absolute no brainer for me, and boggles me how anyone wouldn't have a keeper on the bench. If a keeper is sent off or injured, then you're f*cked without a backup, I don't care how good people think the outfield players might be. If they were that good, they'd be a goalkeeper, not an outfield player.
  12. Come off it, you can't tell me a keeper we've signed, a professional goalkeeper, isn't as good as a few of our outfield players..? That's ridiculous.
  13. Happily? We're all football fans here, but just read what you've put. You and many others are HAPPY, not content, but HAPPY, to pay over £100 to watch a game of football. Not a final. But a semi final. Of 90 mins of football. The world's gone mad. Either that, or you are all paid hefty sums of cash. That's absolutely absurd, and in my view, disgusting to charge that amount for a game of football.
  14. Christ, we get it, for the 3rd time.

    Joey Barton

    Probably the shortest club statement I've ever read.
