    You have to many breaks

    i'll give you that one, that annoys me.

    the players spend most of the time standing aboutplus

    if they're replacements..............

    you have to be 7'10 and weigh 22st to play.

    and yet the jolly green giants are getting hit so hard they still snap their necks and lose their limbs every now and then

    Commercialisation of the game.

    See, I watched Man City do almost the same thing, and I was considered a loyal fan. :D

    Damn! Are you even from Macnhester?

    What good exactly has all this cash from Sky actually brought?

    Who cares?

    Sky hand over the readies to get the rights to show football- its up to the clubs how they spend it.

    The reason why the FAPL was set up in the first place was so the top clubs could get a bigger slice of the pie, and it sure as hell wasn't Sky who took the Football League to the High Court in order to get the FAPL created.
    And the now risible number of traditional Saturday 3pm starts... of course it's Sky's fault with its multi-game Super Sunday bullshit.

    Why is it Sky's fault that they are showing the games they paid an awful lot of money to show? The FAPL created the broadcast packages, and set the price for obtaining those broadcast packages. The clubs make the product, the TV company just uses that product.

    I know you have a pathological hatred of Murdoch, but the simple fact of the matter is that Sky have done a lot for football, both the FAPL and lower down the ladder, and I don't think they have created any of the problems.

    Because of Sky lower league clubs get shown live on the TV (as a division three side we've been shown live about four times in the last two years, and that's great for the club coffers), and get their goals shown on highlights packages, Conference clubs gets live games and a highlights package of their own, and women's football gets a decent coverage too.

    Sky actually saved the Football League from oblivion after ITV folded, if we're going to be accurate.
    How many clubs did you see goingt into administration 2 or 3 decades ago?

    Bradford Park Avenue, Barrow, Newport County, Aldershot, Accrington Stanley, Gateshead, Bradford City, Middlesbrough...

    Incompetent referees.
    Defensive/negative tactics.
    Long balls.
    Peter Crouch.
    Ashley Cole.
    Didier Drogba.
    Prawn sandwich fans.
    Scousers.

    people who complain about sky tv. They bring football to the masses and very entertaining it is too. i'd be lost on a sunday without sky showing games.

    glory supporters

    shite stewards telling people to sit down all the time even tho there is noone sat behind who cant see (i can understand it being an issue if people cant see)

    Goal celebration music, who needs music to let them know to celebrate.

    Thugs who attack random fans, 3 times this year we've been started on by hooligans (sheff wed, leicester, stoke so no surprise ones there)

    Bastards hanging on to their premiership status.

    clubs complaining they have no money etc..but yet can still sign top players (Cardiff)

    no terracing

    grounds that dont serve beer (seem to be increasing a lot recently)

    not being able to drink in the stands, i dont get this one, whats the diff between having a pint before the game, 1 or 2 at half time and having to rush them?? where i could have a casual pint while watching the game. you can take plastic bottles, but not plastic cups on, just with a different liquid in...

    people supporting a team for the sake of it but not making any effort to go see games etc... i know a few arsenal supporters and even when they play teams up here like bastards or pie eaters where there are plenty of tickets available, they dont go...doesnt make sense, but yet they will go to the turf and complain how crap the football is.

    think thats about it for now!!

    the way the players trip over air and cry because someone touched them. At least in women's footy they don't do that, whatever else you may say about it. When I watched the women's FA cup last year, there was none of the bad acting.

    It doesn't make any sense.

    At Valley Parade, you can sit in the stand and drink beer...if you're watching the Bulls. But not if you're watching City, I don't understand why.

    The fact its the only sport that separates fans. Rugby gets on ok with mixed crwods.

    Nah, but some of my family are, so I was kinda born into it. But when everyone else in your school supports Man Utd despite never having seen Old Trafford, you get a bit of credit for driving down to watch Man City in the second division (the third league as it was in 98 just to clarify).
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    People who say (or imply) they support a club but only because they're the top of the Championship/Premiership, etc.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    the glory hunter thing is bs lol... when your team are doing well the shit team fans start going on about glory hunter, then nothing is said when u still support them when it starts to go wrong :/

    Having to hear about England all over the back pages of the news papers and on the news channels and there being only a little bit dedicated to the other home nations.

    Also Sky Sports. Put the Wales game on the BBC so i can watch it, seeing as nowhere around here is showing it in a pub. :grump:

    There's a reason why nobody is showing the Wales game in an English pub.

    Move to Wales if you want to watch Wales. You're in England now. I wouldn't expect the Scots to show England games in the pub, so why are Wales so special?

    I sat there in a hogshead in Exeter, on my own, in a welsh shirt...i walked out in the 63rd minute.

    :no:

    Also to be fair Kermit, everywhere was advertising the Scotland game. And you very well know i cant move anywhere right now, in the future yes I plan to get a job in South Wales.

    Im pissed off that Wales is lacking a good keeper and defence.

    If you were English, you'd be worried about the midfield and attack too...

    A couple of the Slovakian goals were pretty good long range efforts.

    Err and to keep on topic: i hate the way some players go down after no contact at all, roll around a bit and gets up and start screaming at the ref/linesman looking for the foul. cheatin' bastards.
