    Ironically the only real evidence of bigotry is in your words.

    West Ham looked shocking. We had a midfield duo of Barry and Brunt and pretty much dominated midfield throughout. First positive performance for 6 weeks. Glad you got to see that Tim after Stoke.
    Also the legend of Boliler man grows #tapsnose

    I'm predisposed to not like Grealish and He is a diver but he is impressing me this season and he deserves a crack at the England squad.

    yeah. admittedly I don't keep up to date with the media side of it just old mates abroad . Media seem to be running VAR as a story everywhere in the knowledge that at some point in time all fans are going to be upset and mouth off when it goes against their team.
    what i have noticed is that non prem fans now seem more lenient on refs in the knowledge that at least they don't have VAR.

    this.

    i'm not picking up any anti VAR vibes elsewhere on the continent etc. I dont care if we have VAR or not to be honest. I was sick and tired of fans/ players/ managers/ media etc bleating/abusing/harassing officials for making mistakes which reached such a fever pitch VAR was introduced for that reason alone. Now the same people are filling air time, column inches etc with anti VAR whinging. 'It's killing the game' must be one of the most stupid phrases of all time considering what else the game has survived. Its almost as if people use football because they need something to fucking moan about all the fucking time

    My issue with tribal football rivalries is that so many fans have no idea where to draw the line. a Lot of Spurs fans have taken the allegations of racist chants etc against Rudiger as an accusation that Spurs is a racist club and all Spurs fans are racist. A similar reaction from a lot of fans from every club as if it was too difficult to work through what is actually happening.
    I'm no fan of Adrian Durham and even less so when he accused the West Brom board (or whoever was responsible for sacking Darren Moore. Nobody actually knows and Durham could never actually give any evidence that he knew either) of unconscious racism. A lot of Albion fans felt that he was saying west brom was a racist club and felt so upset they used the fact that we had Regis and Cunningham etc as evidence to the contrary. Before you know where you are there's a play ground level slanging match which completely misses the point. Your views on Racism should far outweigh your love for your club. I hope we can promote sensible debate and stand against racism without worrying whether or not we feel that certain fans are accusing our clubs and their fan bases as racist.

    yeah I was talking to a young Arsenal fan about this. I couldn't believe Arteta was called a Legend. My point was that players like Arteta and Corzola being lauded at Arsenal was a sure sign things were on the decline. Like when Liverpool were loving Didi Hamaan , Hypia and Dirk Kuyt. None of these players were bad but all represent a distinct lowering of standards.

    Leipzig are very good corny.if they keep werner this jan then he will enjoy your defense. I heard there was a connection between salzburg to leipzig with players going from S to L and then on to bigger clubs. Salzburg currently have some excellent prospects and Leipzig are in for Haaland. SOmetimes they get first dibs but I think Man Utd might get in first on this one.
