  1. Didn't realise Reid had gone to Fulham to be honest. End of the day, they both left to further their careers, we got good money for both, and both played well for us when they were here. Give them a clap at the beginning, do nothing when they're on the ball (probably more off putting than booing), give them a clap if they come over at the end. Hopefully on the losing side.....
  2. That is exactly why it came as a bit of a shock when this was first raised, there were so many stories coming out of the club at that time, nobody had any idea that something like this had happened - bit like a bolt from the blue! Not saying that Sankofa's account is wrong at all, but I agree with you @phantom, it would be interesting to see if others views of this were the same as his.
  3. Well aware of that Major, and much like comparing 2004 to 1989, the mentality at this moment in time, was completely different to that of 15 years or so before that. The point I was making, was that although "casual racism" (or indeed any sort of racism) has never been acceptable, in 2004 the mentality and way it would have been approached/looked at, would probably have been deemed as "not so bad" as it would be today. The fact that another black player was also in on it, some people (uneducated) would probably have thought that it "must have been ok". As I said, I'm not, and have never condoned racism of any kind. However the way things are now compared to 15 years ago, this example would not have been tolerated under any circumstances, and that is only a good thing. I remember when the story first surfaced a few years ago, a lot of people were really surprised by it, especially when you look back at the squad(s) around that time and see how many black players were involved with the club.
  4. This has been mentioned before, exactly the same story. Not trying to discredit it at all, or make light of it, but the mentality 15 years ago was different to that of today. Today it wouldn't be tolerated under any circumstances, and players would be out of the door. The dressing room then, was also not great. You'd hope that if it was mentioned to the manager, or indeed higher, it would have been dealt with. Not saying that they were aware and never did anything, but you hope that it wouldn't have been ignored. Fair play to the lad for doing his bit on trying to kick racism out of the game, it's not acceptable in any way of life.
  5. I'll 'ave you in that shit grandstand over there
  6. What a joke, every misplaced pass, shot wide, or goal conceded (goalkeeper), that lot would be on their backs and never forgive them. There really is no reason for us to loan anyone to them. As stated previously, facilities, atmosphere, style (or lack there) of play, there are no redeeming features about them. The only convenience would be that they are just down the road. They're the ones that threw the toys out of the pram with the Taylor deal, despite including the clause in his contract which we met. The very nice man that is in charge over there, would have to do a lot of grovelling for anything to happen between the two clubs. That aint likely to happen.
  7. Well they'll be left with a lot of stock at the end of the year. And as for the price
  8. What's the consensus on Asschat about Hamer and them "parting ways"? Usual head in sand?
  9. Wound up on christmas day. Lovely
  10. One of the most strangest appointments they could have made. Car crash at Chelsea second time around. Just as bad at Old Trafford, and ended up sucking the life out of that place. Levy and Jose, how the hell is that going to work. I give it a year. Wouldn't be surprised to see Kane go in January...
  11. Depends which way you've gone in really, but I go in now and again (live just under an hour away) to do stuff like christmas shopping at the outlet. Works out cheaper and quicker than catching the dlr from Epping and then changing lines etc. I've never paid it, but usually drive in (early) on a weekend. Did do it on a Friday at the end of October (our half term here), and haven't had anything in the post. Pretty sure it's just on the outskirts of the zone, and I mean just!
  12. People die at the BRI. 300 cases of pollution (of some kind) results in death every year after a hospital visit/stay in Bristol. Two very different headlines, whilst using the same figures. Btw I have no idea if that is/could be the case.
  13. Agree with @ScottishRed, with the injuries we've had, we haven't really been able to pick and choose who plays where, and in some cases we've been forced to play certain players in a position where they can play, but aren't necessarily at their best. With players now coming back, others can be rested, and in Massengos case, perhaps played in a more advanced role. We also need to realise that whilst he looks like one of the most exciting players we've signed in recent times, he is still young, and has only been in the country a few months!! Great potential and attitude.
  14. That original clip was truly horrific. How they thought that Sonic looked good I have no idea. To be fair they'd have made it look better by incorporating 8 bit Master System Sonic into the film....
