Support Posh, not a Premier League club
Reaction to recent columns...
Match Of The Day is just a dull, goal-highlights show which totally fails to give an accurate impression of a game. I finally gave up watching last season.
Swanny, like TV pundits, you get paid for your thoughts. Are you jealous? theposh60
Having rubbished every possible contender to host the Football League show, Swanny is now searching for an arrogant, preachy, low IQ, pompous, untalented, smug, irritating, divisive and selfabsorbed personality to host the show. Take a look in a mirror Swanny - there’s your man.
A women’s place at a cricket match is setting out the food at the tea break. Fletton lad
Come on Swanny lad, give the England Ladies cricket team some credit. They won a thrilling World Cup Final in front of a full house at Lord’s. Never mind the quality, enjoy the occasion. Gremlin
Stupid money paid for Neymar by PSG - rich clubs just stifling hermetically-sealed fantasy bubbles. Give me Posh every time. @TobyWoody
Support your local clubs I say and ignore the Premiershiptype fat cats. @rvperky
When it came to the crunch the England Lionesses football team reverted to the usual English tactic of being too direct. It was very disappointing. @sonly_a_game I tried to watch the live action from the Women’s Euros, I really did. I started to view the semi-final between England and Holland having read so many glowing reports on a) the standard of our team and b) the standard of football generally. But it’s obvious to me why our Women’s Premier League clubs play in front of crowds that would shame Accrington Stanley.
Ladies football, much like ladies cricket, is just not that interesting. It’s just not entertaining. I don’t watch much local nonleague football for the same reason, apart from Netherton United FC with whom I have a long-standing connection. I’m not sexist. I enjoyed the Women’s Open golf for instance. But I won’t watch just because the PC Brigade tell me I should.
IT’S NOT FAIR PLAY AT ALL
So the financial fair play rules that are supposed to prevent football clubs living beyond their means haven’t stopped a £200 million transfer of Barcelona’s third best player (Neymar, above) to Paris St Germain. In simple terms financial fair play means clubs can only spend what they generate. That income shouldn’t include billions of pounds of oil sponsorship money. An investigation will doubtless be started followed by an inevitable whitewash of a superpower. A smaller club wouldn’t get away with such a flagrant breach of rules.
GREAT, WEST BROM ARE BACK
The Premier League is back. The return of the prima donnas, hypetastic TV shows and watching West Brom. Great.
