    Anton Ferdinand loan move to Bursaspor

    How long before he encounters some racial comment with real threat and menace? Must say, I'm surprised he took a move to Turkey, they're not exactly renowned for their tolerance. Am sure it won't be too long before he'll take the context of what Terry allegedly said as actually not that...

    Fuentes trial

    I reckon this is the biggest sporting story of the year I'm sure the likes of Nadal, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Contador will be watching with interest. Apparently 7 professional footballers have died of heart problems in Spain in the last decade - almost twice as many as had died in the...

    John Terry and the 'unacceptability of racism'

    Interesting updates from the trial. It's alleged that John Terry "used words based on Anton Ferdinand's membership of a racial group, allegedly said in response to a physical gesture from Ferdinand relating to his well publicised alleged affair with a teammate's wife". It's been claimed that...

    Just want to say a massive thanks to Susannah at the Club, and Sean for a most enjoyable visit to B&L today. Also to the organisers of SZ's sponsorship of Sean for drawing my ticket out. All worked out very nicely, watched training (Prosser didn't take part so can only assume he's not going to...
  12. Anto Flood set to go out on loan

    According to his facebook this evening Anto Flood has set to go out on loan next month. Fans in Ireland are asking him to either go to Dundalk or Cork City, I presume it must be a move back that way as our loan window has ended. FOOTBALL IS A FUNNY GAME I NEED A MOVE CAUSE I NEED GAMES BRING ON...

    Last year's loanees

    Any news of all those loanees we had last year? The much derided Jack Midson was for me the pick of the bunch. He's doing pretty well at AFC Wimbledon. But where are the instantly forgettable Waide Fairhurst, Nathaniel Jarvis, Antonio German and was there anyone else?

    The unsavoury side of football - racist chanting against Balotelli

    After the shaking of heads and wagging of fingers at the Chelsea fans for their singing about Anton Ferdinand (anyone else find this a really strange incident bearing in mind Terry has played alongside Rio Ferdinand for years at the heart of the England defence?) on Tuesday night against Genk...

    The fans this time, chanting against Anton Ferdinand for long periods of the game at Genk last night This has given me an idea for a "most disliked" thread ... Nominations please, and genuine reasons behind your nomination .. unfortunately "W@nk Ham cos they're scum" although absolutely...
