I think he got a reduction because it was a Chelsea player he bit.

Food poisoning will probably last as long as a 10 match ban normally, however he will be banned until september

Can't say I'm that bothered either way but I'm pleased you're pleased.

Got mixed feelings about Barnsley. After what he did for Rochdale, I'm really pleased that Dave Flitcroft is making a fight of it in his first job in charge. On the other hand, relegation might get him the sack and could lead to the dream-team partnership with Keith Hill being re-established at Rochdale. As Keith seems to have made a good start on his own anyway, on balance I'll go for Barnsley staying up and 'Flicker' getting his first bit of 'success'.  :)

Agreed.

And an ex Hull City player as well.

During an unsavoury incident in a nightclub, it was reported in the local press that after a female turned him down he asked her "Do you know who I am?".

Had she worked in the legal profession, she may well have done.

Queued up for FA Cup final tickets yesterday, priced at £45, £65, £85 and £115 with £10 off for concessions.

 

Some people queueing around me making some real sacrafices to be able to afford to go and genuinly concerned that as all the £45 section had sold out that if they couldn't get a £65 ticket they couldn't stretch to £85, which I'm sure if we don't sell our full allocation won't get a mention.

I see Liverpool are struggling to cope without the peckish Luis Suarez - just the six goals, then...

Problem with us rugby fans is we don't know how good we've got it and can make even good things sound bad!  :D

And of course well done to Gareth Bale on his Player and Young Player of the Year award.

Thoroughly deserved,

Just wish as a Spurs fan though that he could curb the occasional needless fall to the floor,

 

Still best make the most of this season as I think he will be gone next.

 

You just know we will finish fifth you see.

 I think you're right. Spurs are reportedly the world's thirteenth-richest club, and therefore are not short of a few bob. Despite this,  the Spurs board have always been prepared to sell their best players if the price is right. 

 

 

 

http://citywire.co.u...bs/a653393#i=13

 

Apparently, the club are willing to double his wages to £150,000 per week "just to keep him". In fact, that would also boost any calculated transfer fee whilst leaving him on lower money than 8 other Premiership players.

 

http://hamrofootball...premier-league/

A cynical observer might think that by raising his wage by £75,000 per week, and thus boosting his transfer value by (say) £10million, the club could sell him before the September transfer deadline for an extra £10million for a net additional outlay of £1.5million.

Remember that cheating Swansea ballboy? Well, according to The Times, his parents are the club's major shareholders and are worth £50million.

Did someone at The Times only just get around to reading the press coverage from the day after?

The press reports that I saw said that his father was a director, not the main shareholder.

I may be confusing it with twitter links though as people seemed to very quickly identify who the boy was, who his parents were and that he'd planned to do something to annoy Chelsea.

I think I might consider cheating in a game of football if the correct result was worth a million quid to my Mam and Dad.

 

Obviously, after due consideration, I'd have to refuse to cheat. That's just a minor example of the difference between Bluebirds fans and Jacks.

;) :D
