Answer this question?

Do they do Multi culture in places like Pakistan,Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia?
I'm not quite sure we want to be measuring ourselves against nations like that, do we?

Re: The top six

In all honesty, who gives a fuck about the top six? Unless we're in it I certainly don't. I'm more concerned with us, and while I may take a passing interest in the title race, it really isn't something I'm concerned with. I'm also not on board with this idea that the top six should bugger off elsew...

Re: Next Seasons Kit

I'm at that age where a polo shirt does me just fine, especially with the aforementioned tight fitting shenanigans that we've seen lately.

I'll leave the replica shirts for the kids.

Re: A change of the times

It reminds me of Pizza Express making all of their chicken & beef Halal to make it more acceptable to those of the Islamic faith. Yeah, but the reason behind the move was because they knew they were missing out on a hell of a lot of custom and money from that demographic. If a vast chunk of their p...

Re: A change of the times

You're right, it's not. It was a bit tongue in cheek (the original post) but I stand by what I said about us bending over backwards not to offend people the vast majority of whom couldn't give a toss anyway. Yeah, you're not wrong there. And the mental thing? It's not the minorities for the most pa...

Re: A change of the times

As I said above, there'll still be a crate of champagne on offer, it'll just be alcohol-free.

I agree with much of what's being said elsewhere on the forum regarding the state of the country today, but this seems a tad petty to me. It's not a big deal.

Re: A change of the times

The FA have decided, in their infinite wisdom, to stop the years-old tradition of leaving a bottle of bubbly in the dressing room at Wembley for the FA cup winners in respect of the fact that some of the team may be Muslim. In fairness, they're still providing a crate of champagne, it's just that i...

Re: Bill's obligatory knee jerk summer clear out list

Sullivan is never going to put his hand in his pocket to the tune of £80/90m for two seasons on the spin, let alone three. And in truth that's what's needed to push on for the top 6. That's it in a nutshell for me really. The top six is a boys club that includes Man City, Spuds, Liverpool, Man Utd,...

Re: Next Seasons Kit

Aside from the really big clubs who get their own bespoke design, aren't the rest all done off templates for the most part? If you look at the Adidas, Nike, Umbro or whatever for most seasons you'll see that the clubs who work with them all have kits based off the same three or four templates. I ima...

Re: West Ham face calls to condemn Democratic Football Lads Alliance

And it's all 'alleged' and 'accused'. There's no mention of any evidence. Which always annoys me. How about some proof linking all these accusations and allegations BEFORE asking for an unequivocal condemnation. This is classic 'court of social justice' behaviour. Court of social justice is seeming...
