  1. Burnley away match thread

    Chilwell playing them onside. At least I had a bet on Wood to score. And then we gift them another. Hopeless defending.
  2. Applauding an opponents goal

    I started to politely applaud a cracking Zola goal when we played Chelsea at Filbert Street back in the 90s, but the goal was the signal for all hell to break out as there were Chelsea fans all around the ground, so I quickly stopped.
  3. What on the roads has annoyed you today?

    I walk to and from work in the city centre and have to run the daily gauntlet of drivers who don't think red lights on pedestrian crossings apply to them.
  4. FA Cup 2017-18

    Even given the usual media bias towards Spurs, BT are exceeding themselves today. They saw nothing wrong in the blatant foul that lost Swansea possession before the goal, and called Son onside when he was definitely off. They'll say black is white if it favours their darlings.
  5. Champions League 2017/18

    Was going to switch over to the Wolves match. Glad I didn't. Come on Juve!
  6. A player puts a shot into row Z. Commentator says "he's better than that". Clearly he isn't.
  7. FA Cup 2017-18

    I'd like the Yeovil fans to sing "is that all you take away?"
  8. "Front foot" and "back foot". Notwithstanding that humans' feet are at the sides, the phrases are used ad nauseum. There are other words. "Worldy". Irritating, just irritating. "Their tails are up". Makes me think a rude thought, or what happens when a horse raises its tail. "It's a good time to score". When isn't it?
  9. 54th minute applause for a fellow Fox

    While having due respect for the family and friends of any City fan who passes away, I think it is disproportionate and somewhat presumptuous to ask and expect 30,000 people, 99.9% of whom probably had no connection to that person when they were alive, to applaud a stranger. There seems to be more and more of these requests, which devalue the whole idea. It simply isn't reasonable. For me, the bereavement process is for those who knew the person and have genuine grief. An organised remembrance day is a far more realistic and proportionate way to pay respect to those who have passed away during the year, also it would be inclusive for those who died during the close season.

    How many fouls does Dembele have to commit before being booked?
  11. VAR Issues

    Fair enough, it felt longer. They need to cut that time down otherwise five or six minutes of stoppage time will become the norm if there are several VAR consultations.
  12. VAR Issues

    Moss didn't seem to add anything like enough time for the stoppages. The delay before awarding the goal must have been around 2 minutes on its own.

    How many fouls do Lingard and Martial have to commit before being booked?
  14. Chelsea (A) :: Match Thread

    How did they get away with moving the ball for thathe free kick? And the foul on Willian

    The ref's far less keen to card their players than ours. The inconsistency gives them a significant advantage. It's so frustrating.
