We also have a player called Fenton John too, and that name brings me great joy.

The poor lad has his name written down as John Fenton every bloody week on the stats websites. Have to correct it every time

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 不不不

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

Not a huge surprise when you have a first name for a surname and a surname for a first name!

Every time I read it I just want to yell FENTON, FENTON, JESUS CHRIST!

Just seen the training pics on official website. Still no NML which is a real shame as I wanted to see him last few games.

Pretty much same squad as v Rotherham and Sheff Wed. Coulson was back so will be added to bench i would imagine.

Should just give starts to Coburn for the remaining games to see how he does. The alternative is Chuba so it's a no-brainer for me.

Thats really gonna show the trolls who's boss.

I mean I appreciate the sentiment behind it...but like taking the knee, its going to accomplish bog all.

Think its still up to the platforms to be more diligent and take stronger action to block or ban anyone posting abusive stuff. I'd even like to see heavy fines and prison sentences introduced for repeat offenders.

But not intended to show those absolute f**ktards whos boss its intended to force the platform owners to take responsibility and create accountability for what you post. Im sure a couple of clever algorithms or even proper registration process would catch and eliminate 90% of it.
Also it was no great surprise to see how quickly the. EPL, FA and government can bring their full force to bear when their profits are under threat but when it comes to taking action in fighting online hate theyre just content with a shoulder patch, banner etc as they continue to kick the can down the street....

The message acknowledges it might not change anything. But then beyond the nuclear option, there's not a lot we can do as a club or as fans.

I think the platforms do their best with the resources they have to manage the accounts using it but anycomputer-literate person could create a new anonymous Twitter account in less than a minute. So its their own policies that mean that aspect of it is failing.I'm also pretty sure fines and prison sentences would come if platforms like Twitter actually had information to pass onto authorities in the case of violating its terms of service. As it is, they don't because they don't request it at all from users. It relies on users divulging too much of their identity, essentially.

I think a balance needs to be kept for people's privacy, though. There are plenty who use Twitter who won't want to divulge their information for good reason, too. Introducing a layer of authenticity behind that might make things difficult for them. It'd be interesting to see the drop-off of bots if Twitter had to enforce an owner onto them, though.
