Article about pre-emptive body art on BBC sport....

Whatever, but if you're gonna get a tat, at least get one that looks like the artist wasn't a half blind a gibbon on speed!

Yeah you are right. I was more focusing on the fact that for once it's not premature getting the tattoo, that I completely overlooked how terrible it looks!

Couldn't they have just played it next weekend?

Doesn't really give the two teams their break though. They would have trained all last week in preparation and then had to train all this week too.

they will not want to give us the chance of getting second ahead of them - ours is a game they will be putting it all into, irrespective of the madrid game. whilst they may be playing some of their 'lesser' players, it doesn't usually make any difference with them !

100% correct imo, mcfc u23's would deal with the Irons no probs.

You can tell it's a winter break when Sheff Utd and Leeds are the main talking points in the football world over the last week

You may be right, however my source just sent me a picture the geezer took on practice day (yesterday)

I think this explains a lot 🤨

Pickford doesn't help himself to be honest. He shows himself to be wound up too easily. Best thing he can do is just not say anything for a while and get back to performing on the pitch.

Too right, but we all know what Southgate gonna do don't we?

I think problem is with Southgate and is he just doesn't rotate the keepers enough. There's three good English premier league goalkeepers maybe even a forth though Heaton is injured at the moment. So you have Pickford, Pope & Henderson. You must give them games.

I'd remove Pickford from that list and add Ramsdale.

Well I'd even say Johnstone at West Brom, very surprised not many premier league clubs haven't looked at him.

Agreed but "professional" footballers shouldn't be abusing professional referees either. 

 

I'd like to see footballers booked, sent off, fined and banned for disrespecting officaldom on the pitch.

 

They are role models and fail badly.

I'm a professional in my job. But if someone started calling me a useless c**t etc whilst I was trying to do my job then at the very least I'd have a go back.

As a professional in your job, are you supposed to be impartial?

True, but a professional footballers job is to win football matches, not be impartial. If the ref doesn't like things said Toni him, book them and include it in match report.

Not sure I understand the link between winning matches and respecting human beings. They are not incompatible. The actions and reactions of many pro footballers on the pitch is disgusting.

True. I was drawing a distinction between the job of a footballer (to win football matches) and the job of a referee, which is to impartially administer the laws of the game.

How odd

 

Hmm part of me thinks Moss is in the wrong but another part of me thinks he's within his rights to give a little back if they've been having pops at him all game.

 

Ultimately I don't think he should be making comments like that as if there were controversial decisions in the game and then goes and makes these comments it could cause him trouble as it would bring his impartiality into question. 

 

I know it never happens and I'm at a loss to understand why, but if players do end up calling refs every word under the sun they should be booked. That's surely a much better way of managing the game instead of having a war of words and then dealing with the subsequent media circus?

Absolute disgrace. I think he should be 'Tarred' and Feathered' and then sent off on a months holiday with Chris Sutton.
