    ^ I recall a couple next to me being apprehended by the stewards at Goodison park for making an obscene gesture at Everton fans singing this chant. They were naturally concerned at ejection from the ground and possible loss of their season tickets, so I suggested that they use the homophobic chanting by Everton supporters as justification for extending the traditional clenched fist and two raised fingers. Result? They were released and apologised to, and I got a big kiss from the lady in question. If the Stewards knew then (2010?) and accepted it as justification, why did they allow it to continue in further matches?
  2. Aha... the Irishman .... Gustav O'Poyet ... a sad, sad loss ...
  3. Chelsea's forward issues

    Can't disagree with that .... always felt that was an error .....
  4. When he left last time, I was disappointed, but actually rather relieved: he had seemed like a lost soul, floating around the pitch waiting for someone to tell him what to do, and that can never be how a leading professional behaves in any profession. On his return, I was looking forward to seeing a much improved, and possibly finished, article. Alas, I am once more disappointed.

    Not alone there, Chara. My secretary’s (when I had one, such a paragon … ) Mini broke down in the same place. Outside the AGB building. Petrol line broke and dropped into the exhaust…. Resulting fire stopped traffic for ages. Can’t help on std of ACON matches. Never watched one. Vuvuzelas put me off.

    Final thought. As an ex-very heavy smoker some 30 years ago (65 a day habit), I'd not dare smoke again. A return to those days is simply not conceivable. Agreed, back to topic.

    He needs to learn that you have to do that in the first 60 seconds of the match… Looking forward to the big guy sinking the Spuds at New 3pt Lane next week.

    Read my mind there, Bob. Nearly made a witty remark about the ring of Gyges, but thought it would be misconstrued...

    Quite so. I hate those bastards in Chesterfield, too.
