    That Sterling Incident

    I read Suggs’s book a while back- he’s a Chelsea fan btw. His Mum was a singer, who used to take him along to various Soho dives when she was performing as a small kid. At the Colony Rooms, the female proprietor affectionately called Suggs “ Little cxnty” Loveley!

    Remember being in the benches with the old man in 77- the song from the Shed was the promotion ditti... Going up, going up, going up up up. Thought it was glorious, glorious, glory us us us.... Just started clubbing in 83. More often than not you’d have to have a collar and tie to get in. I’ll go Class Action Weekend or New Jersey Connection Love Don’t Come Easy.

    That Sterling Incident

    We are living in barmy times. It’s not uncommon for players or referees to the struck by objects thrown from the crowd, and yet a single incidence of a player being verbally abused receives more media attention. Whatever happened to sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me? The PC pendulum has swung way too far IMO And as for suggestions that the fella should be disciplined for swearing and having an angry face. Stroll on . As others have said, should this include players and management? If so Sir Alex Ferguson would be serving a life sentence in Wormwood Scrubs by now. Snowflake generation tosh if you ask me.

    The first time I heard my Dad swear was at Chelsea. I thought that was part of the attraction- letting off steam, getting the weeks frustration out of your system. I realise I’m a dinosaur, and I wouldn’t knowingly scream the C Word if there were young kids sitting close by, but come on.... Just thinking- I don’t moderate my language at games for women- call me a sexist pig but see it as a male environment that by and large they’ve joined knowing the rules And people wonder why year on year the atmosphere at games becomes progressively more sterile.

    Mr “ We could well end up loosing our next 5 games” Theres nothing like positive thinking.

    Similarly to JT at Loftus Rd, and the Paris Metro incident, you can bet your bottom dollar in the coming weeks various other “ New Chelsea Race Storm” headlines will appear. No doubt incidents fuelling these stories will be extremely trivial, but as in the media’s want the precursor will be “ in the wake of the Sterling Race Storm......” Things that would not normally warrant attention will be highlighted due to the dreaded “ In the wake of” titter tattle bullsh*t.

    Wasn’t there but went to Oakwell the year before in November 83. Remember it because it was my 17th birthday and I was wearing a green blue and black diamond Pringle I’d just bought from a golf shop in South Croydon.

    Alan Gilzean- who was another one who seemed born 36 -had a weird barnet- long at the back and sod all up front. The late Noel Brotherston had clowns hair. Kept expecting him to say to his opponent “ smell my flower” Cue water sprayed into eyes....

    Yep. Half the Shed would have got life bans if today’s standards were applied to the 70s early 80’s. Its ironic how some football reporters who were around back then when hundreds/ thousands of fans were singing risqué songs, never stuck their head above the parapet and condemned it. I’ve reservations over Kick it Out They are a vested interest group and it is in their interest to blow any incident out of proportion in order to justify their being. They’ve extended their initial brief from racism to sexism, homophobia, and various other grievance zones- a nice niche growth industry- the headlines scream that according to their records racism is on the increase at football. Is it bollox. Analysis reveals that this is at grass football ( ie 22 blokes and a dog playing park football) So the situation hasn’t deteriated at all, it’s just that there is now a vehicle for classifying so called hate crime at say Hackney Marshes on a Sunday morning that didn’t previously exist. 41,000 plus people watching a game of football, and we are talking about the alleged behaviour of a few blokes. Huge over reaction if you ask me.

    I see that the Kick it Out are chomping at the bit. No racist incidents ( alleged in otherwise), no cosy little jobs for them.

    Some classic haircuts on view. John Dempsey’s Max Wall combeover, Chris “ labradoodle” Garland. John Dempsey and Ron Harris are the only ones who hair is above the ear.

    Ha. Anyone who pays any attention to anything said in football press conferences is a bit of a sad plonker in my book. Chewing gum for the ears.

    Agreed. Set yourself up as the underdog and it takes pressure off. Schoolboy psychology. Obviously something that our “ take everything at face value”’ correspondents are too thick to realise

    As if anything said in a press conference would have any impact on elite players performance once they cross over the white line. Bit like Mourinho’s so called mind games, of which there’s zero proof had any effect whatsoever.
