  1. If the PFA are really basing their case on inconsistency in the way Keogh has been treated compared to the others, it suggests that they think the others should have been sacked as well - strange that they want more of their members to be out off work....
  2. I sit in the upper tier and have got wet twice in 22 years sitting in the same seat - once when the rain was blowing horiziontally into the stand and the other time was not long after the ground opened and water dripped through the roof (thankfully fixed fairly quickly)
  3. Nice article in the Times: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/7178df5e-fbf5-11e9-837f-79f312a00fbd
  4. As he's appealing the decision, perhaps we could still let him use the facilities for a reasonable fee - £25K a week sounds pretty fair.....
  5. I think folk are over-thinking this - if either of the two drivers hads been sent to prison and therefore been unable to play for us, they would probably also be on the 'possibly sacked' list - as it is, while they were moronic, they've been punished by the club and the courts and are now avaialble to do their jobs. Keogh on the other hand is unable to play and is therefore unable (through his own actions) able to meet the requirements of his contract - that is a different situation and if (as is likely), the club can't claim on their insurance as it wasn't technically a 'work related injury', they need to protect themselves by recouping some of the money they would otherwise be paying to someone who will spend the next year or so sitting on his behind rather than doing what he's being paid for....
  6. That's a hell of an insight into your psyche......
  7. Hadn't realised that Chrissy had an interest in Geography....
  8. I used to like Talksport, but it's no more than click-bait nowadays - presenter says/tweets something stupid purely in order to generate responses. There are hardly any reasoned discussions as they just want people to rant.....
  9. Would the club reconsider their approach to away fans at the end of games? Currently they are allowed to leave the stadium at the final whistle and home fans from the East stand are re-routed/delayed to allow the away fans to get back to their coaches or to walk along the path in the car park behind the South Stand. Apart from inconveniencing the home fans (including quite a number of elderly) and preventing them from getting to the car parks (thereby encouraging people to leave before the final whistle), it also has the effect of bringing large numbers of home and away fans into direct contact at the end of the path near the entrance to the arena car park - in the case of (for example) the Leeds game last season, this approach led directly to the fans kicking off - trouble which continued along the road towards (and beyond) the roundabout outside the Audi dealershjhip. Other clubs keep away fans in the stadium for 10 minutes at the end of the match - this would greatly reduce the likelihood of trouble outside the ground and also remove the need for so many fans to leave games early.....
  10. Well thanks for your well thought out and carefully worded advice - it's always great to be lectured by the morally bankrupt children of this parish. To be honest, the more I see of posts telling people they are overreacting or need to get a grip, the less I feel part of the club anymore - some of you folk need to grow up a bit and realise this fiasco has really upset a huge number of people asscoiated with the club. Add in the number of complete **** **** we now seem to have following the club (the Frank effect?) and I'm beginning to think it's time to call it a day......
  11. Just throwing this out there, but is it possible that Cocu is misjudging the situation because he's Dutch? - having worked with a few Dutch folk, they have a different outlook on life - far more laidback and relaxed about things in general. It may be that Cocu (as he showed with the Forest team selection) just doesn't yet 'get' the strength of feeling for the the club from the fans and doesn't therefore give sufficient consideration to them when making decisions. My opinion is that the two morons shouldn't be anywhere near the team until they've had their day in court and I'm really not sure what Saturday will be like when/if they run out of the tunnel - I'll still turn up as always, but as things stand, I'm not sure I'll care whether we win if the idiots are involved - as things stand, the club feels like it's drifting away in a direction I don't like - big decisions to make when it gets to renewal time if I can't get the connection back - perhaps I need a test to see whether the club really is 'in my DNA' anymore.....
  12. Got what we deserved - sloppy and wasteful...
  13. Lawrence collapsed as if he'd hit a lamppost....
  14. Agreed - was looking forward to it, but neither team showed anything - United seem to just hope that Dan James can create something out of nothing and Arsenal rely on Aubameyang - but neither side have anyone else that seems able to impose themselves and both have comedy defences....the only passion the two sides showed was when the players were surrounding the referee and demanding cards were given to the opposition (a behaviour I thought had been outlawed - though as it's Man U & Arsenal I expect they've been given an exception....)
