They've been second best for the last 20, 25, 30 minutes.

Ahh gotcha!

The first and third (haha) make sense as they're an estimation and as such it's natural to offer a range.

It's not just approximations though. It's literally every time a number is mentioned (unless it's a shirt number).

And they always come in threes.

I don't generally hear those in threes. It's usually 20, 25 yards for instance.

Three is a touch too many.

My football cliche annoyance is when a forward is caught between two defenders and they say something like

Salah caught in a Burnley sandwich there.

No, fuck off Burnley are the bread of the metaphorical sandwich. A sandwich is identified by its content so it is a Mo Salah sandwich.

This is depressing.

Quote:
Premier League football teams including Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have received thousands of homophobic responses on social media for showing solidarity with Stonewall’s pro-LGBT Rainbow Laces campaign.

Over the past two weeks the clubs have been posting pictures on social media of rainbow-striped logos and messages to back the annual campaign, which was launched by Stonewall in 2013 to kick out homophobia in football.

A post on Manchester United’s Facebook page in support of the campaign received more than 43,000 “angry” responses.

Fans’ comments including “Say No to LGBT”, “God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Lukaku” and “Gaychester United” each received more than 10,000 likes.

Similar homophobic messages were left on the pages of Arsenal and Chelsea after they updated their profile pictures to include rainbow-coloured logos and messages of support for the campaign.

The gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell said the responses were “shocking” and a wake-up call to the FA and clubs.

“Quite clearly, the existing campaigns [to curb homophobia in football] have not been sufficient,” he said. “Even so, I suspect that these bigoted comments are coming from a hardcore minority and do not reflect the views of most fans. Unfortunately social media does tend to attract and give a voice to people with extreme views.”

Kirsty Clarke, Stonewall’s director of sport, said: “It’s great to see so many sports associations across the UK proudly championing LGBT equality as part of our Rainbow Laces campaign. The backlash from a small minority online is a reminder of just how vital it is for all of us to do our bit to help make sport everyone’s game.

“This year’s campaign is about giving people confidence to be active allies and show their visible support for LGBT people, either on or off the pitch. It’s been heartening to see that allyship in action, particularly on social media, where we’ve seen countless messages from people who aren’t LGBT calling out abuse from fellow fans and highlighting why their attitudes have no place in sport.

An Arsenal spokesperson said the club’s policies made it clear that discriminatory behaviour would not be tolerated.

“We are very proud to be supporting the Rainbow Laces campaign and do a great deal of work to promote equality across all levels of the game,” the spokesperson said. “As Facebook is the platform where these views are being shared, we are ensuring that all of our Arsenal for Everyone initiatives and messages, plus ways to report anti-LGBT language on a match day, are posted via this platform.”

the comments on LFC posts are always grim when they support LGBT stuff, a lot of it seems to be from Middle Eastern/Asian countries rather than the UK.

I was arguing with a few of them and I'd say about 90% of them were. To be honest they seemed to be Salah or Mane fans and would probably stop supporting us tomorrow if they left.

Sancho is fucking ridiculous. Can't think of a many better fits for our attack than him if we are after another in the summer, mad that he's only 18, his intelligence and awareness of others is insane, guess you either have it or you don't.

Not the world, but they do have a duty to fix football.

Big time mate, enormous gulf in technique, composure, awareness of others, skill, everything basically. Signing Sancho would wind City fans up a treat too.

On the pitch, in the crowds, sure. But social media? The best you can do is ban people. That isnt really fixing, just sweeping under the rug.

Gourav Mukhi suspended and summoned by AIFF in age-fraud case

Jamshedpur FCs Gourav Mukhi has been suspended by the All India Football Federation (AIFF) and has been summoned for a hearing into the age fraud case that hit the headlines in October. Mukhi had been embroiled in controversy over his age after scoring for Jamshedpur in a 2-2 draw against Bengaluru FC in the Indian Super League. On paper, he is 16-years-old and had allegedly become the youngest scorer in the ISL.

I read something about this guy apparently in 2015 his club were found guilty of faking his age in 2015 and the association deemed then that he was older than the 15 that he claimed to be then. They banned him for 2 years because of it This year (2018) they have claimed that he's only 16

I wonder what kind of teams Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea put out. Hopefully more first team players that get tired to affect their league standings.

I was hoping for them to get through, two more games to squeeze into their schedule in January. It's always a distraction, hope they get Spurs.
