Bloody dodgy football club owners! 😡

Seems clear that the due diligence process has too many loopholes in it, if former owners can conveniently leave out important facts that leave the new / current owners in a situation like that.

Unsurprisingly the FA and local MP do precisely what you'd expect...sweet FA! 🤦‍♂️

Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Centuries ago Villages had ducking stools whereby if the person drowned they were innocent and if they lived they were guilty and sentenced to death. Nowadays not much has changed sadly. Idiots postin

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

Bordeaux, who were recently relegated from Ligue 1, have been relegated again (before a ball has been kicked) due to their financial issues. They are now in the third tier of French football.

thats giving their fans something to wine about

would have thought though if you were buying it and the property that you would pay for simple searches on the property which would highlight this straight away, due dilliegence is a 2 way thing, shouldn't buy a business of significant value without paying your own people to veryfy and check everything out themselves. so feel like the last owner should have lied but they should bear some responsibility also.

looks like McBurnie and Brewster going to be in court over the pitch invasion stuff. cannot see the reasoning behind prosecuting someone being attacked unless there are other circumstances I have missed

It’s ridiculous. They were in their workplace and people who had no right to invade their work space did so in a menacing manner. They had every right to defend themselves assuming that they did so.

They'll be pulled up as 'role models' and all that crap. I mean, maybe not and maybe we don't know what else went on. It's not the first time McBurnie in particular has been in trouble to my recollection but still, they surely don't do anything if the Forest fans don't come onto the pitch and indeed if all they've done is try to protect themselves and their teammates then power to them.

If people can't just run onto the pitch to celebrate with their own team then we will have to move as slow as the slowest in society and really clamp down on pitch invasions. It's so bloody dumb, I can't imagine any reason I'd want to be anywhere near any Sheffield United players, coaches, fans, anything after getting to Wembley.

You're right like but knowing McBurnie he will probably get radged during the trial and stick one on the judge 🤦‍♂️

I'm not defending them by any stretch of the imagination as I think McBurnie is an odious example of a footballer.  

But what your saying is that if someone ran through your workplace calling obscenities in your direction, then it would be perfectly acceptable for you to stamp on them?

Just for the record, I did see the vid on social media at the time and i'm not 100% certain that he actually stamped on him, nor can I be certain that the obscenities were in the direction of McBurnie.

If you have no right to be somewhere you should behave impeccably or expect consequences if you don’t.

The Sheffield United players had every right to expect to dejectedly walk off the pitch without fear, hindrance or intimidation just as losing sportsmen do in all sports be it Cricket, Tennis, Boxing, Rugby or Football and to be treated with respect in doing so. The Forest supporters had no right to be on the pitch and certainly no right to be antagonistic and in some cases physical with insults and abuse. By all means celebrate and be euphoric at the victory but clearly that wasn't enough for some.

I completely agree, there should be consequences and trust me i'm the type of person that believes that if someone does wrong by me then they had better watch their backs because I will catch up with them........Im a wish version of Liam Neeson 😂

I think that if they are facing prosecution then someone has deemed that the actions that they took were a little excessive and also a bit bloody stupid if you ask me when there are so many cameras about these days.

That guy that headbutted Billy Sharp....He got a 6 month sentence for what he did and the reason he got away lightly was because he claimed that he was a bit drunk and he stumbled towards Sharp and unfortunately made contact, this could not be disproved! 
I saw that video as well and what I saw was a man that saw Sharp and put his head down, sped up and charged into a player.....it was a disgusting and cowardly attack on a player that could have had very severe consequences.  

If a someone is physically attacked then they have the right to retaliate, but if it's just a bit of name calling then maybe it's not right.

    • That's not from Wilder's mouth like the other section is though, that's just the Northern Echo writers opinion which is about as good as anyone's on here... with some notable exceptions 🤠
    • "Paddy McNair generally lined up as the left of the Teessiders’ three centre-halves last season, but the Northern Irishman is more naturally right-footed and is set to compete with Anfernee Dijksteel for the right-hand side centre-half spot next term" Taken from the Echo article on the same topic, they seem convinced it's either Dijksteel or Paddy.
    • I wonder if we'll see one of them used in Howson's position as preseason continues? We had a couple of links with players in that position (Chalobah I think?) ages ago, but we haven't seen any for ages. It may be that we want to try one of McNair or Dijksteel there.
    • It  could mean one of them will  be sold? If it was up to me McNair would be my choice . When Paddy played rcb on Saturday he was okay but when Dijksteel played the second half in that role he was much better and linking up with Izzy. Obviously it was Bishop Auckland but I still think Anth looked more suited to the role    
    • Think he just wants more completion/rotation so may be a case of either fry & Lenihan and either Dijksteel or McNair for example. I agree I wouldn’t be surprised to see us try get two left sided CB to compete one experienced and one younger.
