Ignorance always finds a way to manifest itself.

It's amazing isn't it.

It reminds me of a game, city v Bristol Rovers abd I was in the East Stand(Bike shed).

A group of lads were giving a Rovers black player loads of abuse,not ALL racist but he was singled out 

Julian Joachim came on and scored... these same people where shouting JJ"s name and rejoicing.

Me and mate just shook our heads at them...still don't think they'd understand the irony in their actions!

I have related a story not unlike this myself on here, and that also involved JJ.

How many times have Man City failed to score at home past two seasons ???

We beat them 2-0 there not so long ago.

Unsurprisingly the dickhead giving out the racist abuse in the Manc derby has been arrested. Also been named and shamed on social media, plus his employer has been made aware.

 

Criminal record, plus probably a lifetime ban from the ground and losing his job. Merry christmas you idiot

You could see it clear as anything on tv. I don’t understand this disgusting behaviour. I thought, naively, it had gone away years ago. I know it’s still a big problem in parts of Eastern Europe but we need to stamp it out as it’s becoming an issue. I’m sure it isn’t a football problem, more a social one.

Yeah it’s been increasing in this country as a whole for years now. (And others.) The government publish stats on it. The police publish reports on increased resources fighting right wing extremists. The fans don’t suddenly feel more free to verbally attack people only once they get into the stadium. It’s a reflection of society

It's looking like it is only going to be us that can stop Liverpool this season. They have almost been faultless this season in picking up results but imo they are not playing at the same level as they were last season. One bad result and I can see them going on a bad run, losing the momentum they have built till now. 

 

Question remains if we are going to be able to capitalise on them dropping points. 

It looks a bit of a long shot really.Would love Liverpool to trip up but they haven't really hit a rough patch for a long time and it doesn't look like happening before May.

 

Doubt our fanbase will be giving it large a la Tottenham 2016 .

 

Top 4 would still be an excellent season. Most other clubs would love to be in our position.

At the moment yes, but with the number of fixtures, Liverpool will have this season, they are bound to drop points at some point and we need to be ready to capitalise.

 

Last season was a one off where Man City and Liverpool won week in week out. Without Man City challenging them I think they may not feel the pressure and may get complacent. Liverpool do not do well leading in recent years. 

 

Saying that, of course they are favourites and regardless of whether we win it or not, if we get top 4, it will be some achievement. We've already got ourselves in a position where if we don't make it, we'd all be disappointed.

It's ridiculous wherever it happens but even more brain-dead to do it on the front row when cameras are focusing on that area of the pitch.

 

What a twat.

Also he DOES go down far too easily, then spends the next few minutes whining and shouting at the ref about it if he doesn't get a FK.

 

To sum up, he's a greasy haired whiny diving little scrote who isn't as near as good as people make out. McGinn is a better player. 

Told you :revenge:

Tell you what, fair play to Steve Bruce. They looked an utter shambles at our place but since then they've won 5 and drawn with Man City.

 

Bottom half looking very tight.

When will Steve Bruce get any credit, if Rafa had them in the top 10 we'd never hear the end of how brilliant he is. Yes the bottom half of the league is terrible but he still has to win.

If Brighton want to play this way they need to get a better midfield than Propper and Stephens. They're both poor

 

Then Stephens plays that pass lol

And Propper scores lol

 

You're welcome Brighton
