Seems a bit of a drama queen - that's a shakespeare reference , not a comment on the writers opinions btw !

Good read up until the Addendum. Live in the real world, any club that does not have proper fan segregation is asking for trouble and going to get it. People should behave, but they don't.

Thanks to UtJ for the opportunity and to others for your comments. I'm just off to google what "jump the shark" means - I'm sure it's positive...

Actually it's an American term used to describe the point at which long-running TV series stop being as good as they used to be.

It all comes from an episode of "Happy Days" when The Fonz jumped over a swimming pool containing a shark on his motorbike.

Another great bit of blaming your own fans there.


You've taken one paragraph when the whole point was that there are multiple reasons and no nuanced reporting. Rather proves the point.

Oh and I was there in the 70s and 80s and am no shrinking violet btw. I work in a world of extreme violence and nothing shocks me anymore, except the wilfully blind.

Good read that.

My only gripes with the ratings are in 11/12.

Demel, maynard, baldock and ravel are all maybes in my book.

Demel - when he was fit he was good but he spent far too long injured.
Maynard and baldock were both good strikers who did a job and scored goals in the champ and ravel, purely for that spurs game alone.

It highlights well that we would be mad to sell Payet in January and use the money to replace him then.

If we do that we will end up with a load of cast offs.
