Some people just want to get away from politics and the shit going on, I don't really see it as racist. I wish they'd remove national anthems from sport too, unnecessary hold up.

I don't know if its been updated but the knee is now its about racism and social injustice

You look up social injustice and discrimination pops up. I'll leave it there.

I just find it weird how many remarks have male pundits made about teams this season. Yet when 1 women makes a comment it blows up.

I do agree with the tweets regarding Amazon prime being shit for live football lol. How can they get it so wrong.
I think it was the reaction from the official Leeds account that made it the story

Leeds are a weird club they are getting plaudits for there football yet get the hump because of 1 pundit lol.

Let the football do the talking and end of the season tweet Karen Carney but oh no lets abuse the women.

Love the bit where they abuse her. Oh wait it doesn't exist.

Some of these female pundits are atrocious. They're just awful at their job, uncharismatic and they have no insight to offer. The same goes for some black pundits who can't string a sentence together, like Clinton Morrison. The only reason they're there is because of tokenism, they aren't in these high paid jobs for any other reason than their gender or race.

You have to laugh at all the cries for equality, yet when they receive an ounce of criticism, there's a huge uproar for 'punching down'. It's all nonsense.

Problem Celtic have is they have no leaders on the pitch. It is alright being the big bully when you are beating shit sides but guys like Scott Brown have no bottle for the real fights and big games.

Terrible game. Huge result for rangers however.

Wonder how much longer Lennon can stay in a job.

What's the thought in Scotland about Gerrard? Is he getting plaudits for his managerial style?

United look good at the moment, I'm pleased that they're doing so well in the league. They played well last night and the game against Liverpool will be massive, though hopefully United can avoid a defeat in it. I'm liking what Solskjaer has done this season, he's done a very underrated job.

It's hard to assess because success in the old firm is pretty much a binary thing. You win the league or you don't.

He conducts himself well, the team have improved under him, play decent football, are well drilled, and are looking really good to take the title after a record start.

The results in Europe over the past couple of seasons have been good, and there have been some good bargain transfer purchases. (not sure about who is all involved in transfer decisions though).


But, he hasn't won anything yet, and the past couple of years the team collapsed late in the season.

You could also say he has been helped this year by Celtic having Lennon as manager. It's certainly an easier job than beating Rodgers.

However, he has had a very difficult task. Celtic had more money, a better squad, momentum, and confidence before he took over.


I think he's done well, and it's a good apprenticeship for the epl.

Well Celtic are officially shite and Lennon should fuck right off.

Failed to qualify for the CL, finished bottom of our Europa League group, knocked out of the league cup, needed penalties to win last seasons rescheduled Scottish Cup despite playing against a Championship side. 19 points behind rangers.

Only silver lining this season has been not being there to see it.

Should be banned and fined any club involved doesn't matter how big the player or club.

Internal investigation is a cop out. Man City Manager also a cop out.

Split the fines between NHS Food banks and under privilege children school equipment.


Spurs interested in Sabitzer.

Would send Bale packing

Great result for Southampton but that's a big blow to Liverpool. United and City can both go above them if they win their games in hand, hopefully they do. I'd love to see United win the title.

I know Leeds are getting plaudits don't think they were all that to be honest Saturday but had some great results so far.

But Southampton just wow 9th in the League is a great achievement in itself. You look at Hasenhuttl nearly every player he brings they improve ten fold Ings Walker Peters I took the piss massively when he left Spurs but look at him now. Theo as well he was doing nothing at Everton look how he is playing now and he is fit. Big fan of the Manager deserves a bigger job when the time is right

What business does the FA have legislating in other languages? It’s absurd

Thats the law though Cavani decided to post public didn't he no doubt anything posted on social media its going to get picked up

What is a grey area is you can have different meanings with different languages. If u look up the word he used has various meanings.

He didn't contest it which says a lot thats prob United. I don't think I would want Suarez speaking on my behalf though would u lol.

Just seen the latest Ramos to Spurs. The money he is on at the red cards no thats a no go
