    Aging opposition stars played at GP

    I think Hoddle played for Swindon at some point; Kenny Sansom for us when (very sadly) he was past it

    Too Many Away Fans in Home GA Areas (split thread)

    I know it's downgrading us, but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet.

    Too Many Away Fans in Home GA Areas (split thread)

    To be honest, when we played at Chelsea away in the Cup replay a few years ago, my wife, son and I couldn't get home tickets - but we got tickets in the Chelsea end !!!?) We had a few nasty looks early on from a lad who looked like a 10-year old pitbull, so we kept very quiet. But we didn't...

    The long throw is a useful weapon, but I think we use them too often. I would reckon that around 80% of the throws within 20 metres of the goal line are long.

    Distribution was excellent and couldn't do much with the first two goals. Not too thrilled with the header which hit the bar after he started to go for a cross but then changed his mind too late. The third goal would sometimes be stopped by Raya with pure luck; other times it would have gone...

    "Vile Chants" on Train Back from Liverpool

    No, that was his dyslexic twin.

    "Vile Chants" on Train Back from Liverpool

    Nah. It's an abbreviation of Pat Kno*. A description of what people like that do.

    "Vile Chants" on Train Back from Liverpool

    That's the worst haiku I've ever read.

    "Vile Chants" on Train Back from Liverpool

    Yes. I do and did believe it, but I wasn't putting it forward as a discussion point.

    "Vile Chants" on Train Back from Liverpool

    I fully agree. On Jan 16. I posted something similar on Twitter in reply to Jim Levack's post on Jan 16 regarding YNWA. "Look at it this way. If we boo it or show anything but respect to YNWA, that will take the headlines. The fact we beat the Liver Birds 2-1 will mean nothing. Far better to...

    I have to own up here. When I first saw him play, back in October, I commented: "He looked almost indistinguishable from Raya in his distribution, but was even more scary."

    Australian Tennis Open 2022

    I know Judio1999 said Novak was appealing, but I think that's a bit excessive, to be honest.

    Álvaro Fernández

    To be fair, when I got b*ll*cked by a boss way back about 30 years ago, I started rethinking and second guessing every decision I made. Only when I did a couple of very good bits of work did I get my confidence back. In business, that's bad. But in sports of any kind, rethinking every decision...

    African Cup of Nations

    I have to be honset here. I've watched almost all of the games, with an eye on players who could fit into our side. So far, I haven't seen anyone who would fit into Martin Allen's side, let alone our 2022 side. Very poor standard all round and yes, I know Salah is there).

    I think he probably has heard one. He just didn't dare to tell it off. And as for asking a herd of hippos "okay, which of you did that"... now that would be tricky.
