A lot of outrage about this, daft thing to go into the home end in any away regalia, even socks, as they got noticed. I've seen it all over, jump up when they score and it comes to blows, family section or not.
totally agree, wonder what some people are thinking sometimes...

Re: Possession is not everything

MB doesnt really change tbf, he never has, firmly believes in what he does. The issue is playing a top level style with 2nd tier players, was always going to have limits. Once a team works out how to beat you you have problems, problems that the top sides get past with individual quality that we do...

Re: QPR V Leeds Utd Match Thread

It hasn't worked properly for a while and yet we keep doing the same thing, the same way each game. It will be a tough end to the season where we end up in the play offs and will get comprehensively beaten by any of those in there

Re: John Motson gaffe?

Haha, you know the point I am making. It seems to me that a lot more white people are in arms over this comment by Motson than black people !!! Madness, utter madness. Haha I do! Just thought it was funny taking the statement out of context a bit! As faaip said I don't think either side are wrong. ...

Re: John Motson gaffe?

If Brian Deane has no issues with it, what is the proble ?! As a British born guy of indian parenthood, I have had a lot of genuinely offensive things said to me over the years but the world really is going PC mad now. No Black person, would be seriously offended by this description. Move on folks....

Why mention his race at all when describing him, as if that's one of his defining features as a player? You wouldn't say Pontus was big, white and brave, it's irrelevant.
Spot on.

Re: Spying Accusation - EFL Verdict

I can guarantee if it was derby spying on us we'd be outraged that it's only 200k fine!

Re: Spying Accusation - EFL Verdict

So let me get this straight. Are you saying that the 200k fine is justified or we should be pleased that it's 200k because in your words it's "nothing in today's money"? I'm saying it's the most sensible outcome. The fine is small, and sets a precedent for the efl to stop other clubs doing it. Alth...

Re: Spying Accusation - EFL Verdict

Crystal Palace received a £25,000 fine from the Premier League in 2014 following allegations that Cardiff City’s team sheet was leaked to them ahead of a match between the sides. So the Premier League, in fining Crystal Palace (managed by Warnock at the time I believe), must have believed and had s...

Re: Spying Accusation - EFL Verdict

A ridiculous fine which is appalling giving the much lower fines for previous examples that are far worse, bugging changing rooms, getting teamsheet information from someone at the opposition club etc. A ridiculous finding given no rule was broken and the only rule even close to applying to the inc...

Re: Spying Accusation - EFL Verdict

Tbh think they just wanted to set a precedent to stop clubs doing it without really punishing us since we haven't broken any hard rule. 200k is a drop in the ocean so it's basically a slap on the wrist. Probably Casillas wages for six weeks

We can use the money we saved on the Dan James non-transfer to pay the fine, smart thinking by Radz not to go ahead with that deal.
You realize it was Swansea who pulled the plug on the deal?

Re: Dwight Gayle

2 games seems fair to me. Anymore seems to be a bit harsh.

Efl haven't made a big deal out of spygate yet, they've just met to try to decide what to do about it. No outcome from it yet
