  1. Safe Standing Survey Results

    You can never completely eliminate risk, only minimise it in this situation. There are too many variables that cant be controlled. I’d love it to happen but I cant see a scenario where the powers that be take that leap of faith. All the discussions etc are all just lip service.
  2. Safe Standing Survey Results

    This is the point. It can never be 0% which is why it’ll never happen.
  3. Safe Standing Survey Results

    I loved standing in the Kop. When we played Yeovil I enjoyed standing on the terrace. Would I be in favour of standing? Absolutely. Will it ever happen? Not in a month of Sundays. The club are not interested in dialogue as it just simply will never happen. The safe standing argument just isn’t there to be made i’m afraid and a fans survey holds no weight as fans didn’t want standing removed in the first place. The unfortunate truth is that nobody had enough of an issue with the safety of the terraces before Hillsborough so the overriding argument will always come back to that. Can the FA in good faith, allow standing areas in the grounds and risk another disaster? Regardless of how ‘safe’ you make a standing area, one accident or incident and the liability the FA would face would be unheard of. One final point. The discussion on here is all very civilised about this subject. The reality is, the terraces were never that, and if we all think that football fans would universally obey and observe rules and regulations laid out by the stadium and the club in regards to a safe standing area, that’s just naivety of the highest degree. The club know it, the FA know it. So it will never happen regardless of how much noise any fan group of any club make.
  4. Conspiracy Theory

    A ‘no’ would have done.
  5. Conspiracy Theory

    Also didnt something like 100,000 in total work on the Manhattan Project and details never leaked out?

    Apparently we can do anything if we’re enthusiastic enough.

    When I saw he was on I absolutely knew exactly how he’d be. I saw him on the Wright Stuff not long ago and he was exactly the same. Complete prat who’s had no career since The Word.
  8. They should put a dog lead on him and make him walk around the training pitch on all fours barking every time the ball comes near him.
  9. WWE

    That would be funny.
  10. WWE

    It really was awkward. Rousey just pointing to the Wrestlemania sign. Bad end to an overall great show.
  11. What are you listening to?

    Really enjoying Greta Van Fleet. Not much balls to the wall blues/rock about so if thats your tipple, i’d definitely check them out.
  12. Iheanacho

    Yeah it was a jovial response to Babylons complicated post and mocking the previous knee jerk reactions to Iheanacho’s performances so far. But totes whatevs yeah?
  13. Iheanacho

    Can we just stick to him being shit? Loads easier to follow.
  14. Swansea.. Score prediction thread.. Sorry Col.

    2-1 Swansea
  15. The only problem I personally have with how this played out, is that it all happened over a matchday which I have no doubt, contributed to us losing that game. The transfer request thing is neither here nor there as he has never retracted his desire to leave, there was a club interested that he would have been happy to join, but they didn’t offer enough. Mahrez is well within his rights to be disappointed as something he wanted to happen, didn’t. When he didn’t get his move in the summer, everything was fine as it was the window before that. Unless he comes out and says he’s going on strike, I don’t see a problem with how anyone has acted. Man City were looking to operate within their parameters (again no issue with that) but they didn’t match up with ours.
