It’s so strange how often this seems to be happening .

And I’m not posting that from an anti vac angle

Completely wasting his career.
Think Shearer said much the same, not the bellend bit obviously. :) Personally think he's a bit over rated.

Private jet to Ireland and back as well, kind of doesn't quite sit right with the poverty campaigns he's involved in, get an EasyJet like the rest of us.

I reckon it always has happened, they just let a couple of paramedics deal with it and the game went on. Now people in the crowd are just about getting into fights to shout to the ref to get the game stopped and get the clubs medics involved. Started before Covid anyway, I remember a Spurs or Newcastle game, maybe even was both teams and the game was stopped while the clubs doctors tended to someone. I don't think it's new, just the way it's dealt with is.

80 odd million for Antony to score one goal and an assist so far this season against the mighty Newport County.

We had one in the Cardiff v Quins match the other week - right by us. I’ve seen a few over the years at the rugby. Like you said, it’s nothing new

Happened at Goodison just along from us at the Chelsea game last season, I couldn't believe how people were reacting and the anger involved from fans trying to get the attention of the ref and stop the game rather than just grab a steward and tell them. Then the abuse the stewards and medics were getting when they arrived was a disgrace, I get that people are concerned but the reaction of some fans certainly didn't help. Think she was alright in the end, Si was on the scene to help out. :)

Were the United players giving it large at the end? Like they’d just won a memorable game against one of Europes elite clubs?

I don't want to be too disrespectful to Sheffield Wednesday or Coventry but if you are a team from the second tier of non league and you have won seven games to make the last 16 of the FA Cup, that isn't your dream tie is it?

I'm sure they'll have a great day out but Old Trafford or the Etihad would have been a fair bit better.

On the flip side of that argument, getting Coventry or Sheffield Wednesday in the 5th round does send you into the tie hopeful of securing a place in the 6th round. Ultimately, the further you progress in the cup, the more likely you are to get that magical massive fixture. A decent cup run breeds confidence and teaching the heady heights of the 6th round has supporters daring to dream.

At least Salah won’t have to worry about getting fit for the Afcon final :snigger:

I fancy the Arse there. Think they've come back from their winter break refreshed and back to business.
