Pudders

You seem to be labouring under the illusion that these clubs are making a profit Andy and lining the pockets of the board/owners? I don't think that is the case for most clubs throughout the football leagues?

I only really have a beef with the Premiership and am well aware that many of the lower league clubs are suffering terribly.

Yeah - but sorry you are picking a very poor argument as my bike for instance was cheaper than the one before it as bike prices have generally decreased due parts been made in the Far East. Plus it was bought on bike to work and in a sale (see how that works - I got it cheap). Then on top of that it saves me a fiver a day plus in petrol every day and pays for itself, keeps me fit and healthy and I'm not tied to buying replica kit for it every 6 months.
EDIT: and plus to go see live pro cycling in Manchester velodrome which we are going to do three times this winter is £15 a ticket.


It's £13.00 at The Shay.  ;)

QuoteWelll... I used to go see a lot of football but don't bother because of what football has become - same with my partner. I do quite like the game itself - just not the "game" as it exists. I also have a son and daughter who would love to go see lots of football games but forking out £100 a time is out of the question - we do other stuff which is not quite such a fecking rip off.

QuoteDiscussion. It's an opinion. This is a discussion thread. You don't like my opinion - fine.  You like to bury you head in the sand - fine. But you can do something about it (football) - which is my point really.


Yes - like coming down The Shay.

It's only £13.00.





;)  ;D

Not sure - but I do know the catering facilities are outsourced by Calderdale Council, so the food and drink is poor value for money and the revenue does not go to the club; hence I never go with an empty stomach.  :-\

Heard quite a lot about football on the radio this weekend. Seemed to be mainly about racism, diving and bad refereeing. Such a fine sport. :)

All I've heard about cycling in the last few weeks is about a drug taking cheat who has shamed the credibility of the sport  :).

I'd noticed this a well. Shocking isn't it?
Do they test for EPO in football?

Any comments on the new yellow football used at the weekend? Apparantly it's the most visible ball ever.

If they dressed all the players in that new yellow then the linesmen could notice offsides? And same for the the ref with dives.

Miking up the referees so we can all hears what's being said on the pitch? Seems a good idea to stop all the disrespect that seems to be currently prevalent on the fiield of 'play'.
Imagine that... either all matches would have to be 18 certificate for the language or the players may actually learn some discipline. The sponsors would soon step in...
Rugby does it - but then again that has a culture of respect for authority. Imagine that: respect in, and for, football? What a revelation.

Rugby - that's the sport where eye gouging occurs and players put blood capsules in their mouths to simulate bleeding.   Yes football would do well to follow that sport  ::)
