    This. We have to hear, several times during the game, every single away game we play and he plays, how Gini Wijnaldum has never scored an away goal in the Premier League...seriously, who gives a shit? He's a midfielder for a start, there are probably quite a few midfielders that haven't done so.

    Alvaro Morata: Chelsea striker suspended after fifth yellow card of season

    Morata getting a yellow card when celebrating a goal by forming an A shape with his hands and putting his finger in his mouth to celebrate the arrival of his newborn child. Because of this, he now misses the 23rd December league match due to 5 yellow cards.

    Is football getting so upper class that players cannot celebrate a goal nowadays? Same when a few years ago Chadli got a yellow card for earcupping Arsenal fans in his goalscoring celebration who had probably been giving him stick in the North London derby non stop for 90 minutes.

    So long as it is not an discriminatory or offensive gesture that is made by players (which the Morata gesture obviously is not if it is celebrating a new born child) why is it a problem how players celebrate? Sums up how pathetic modern football is getting imo.

    Ridiculous rules sometimes in "modern football". As long as they don't wank after a goal I don't give a **** :D Let them celebrate then (although some hilarious celebrations took place nowadays but again, let them do it)

    I quite like it when a player gives it some to the opposition fans, gets people riled up and lifts the atmosphere normally. Much rather that than the sanitised shit they want to sell us as football now.

    Absolutely, frannie.

    What I really don't like are these guys who can't be arsed when scoring a goal. Looks like "Hey, I don't give a **** about this club as long as my cheque is covered". Emotions are part of the game (positive emotions I mean not hate )

    Pointless booking

    Morata is now suspended for picking up his 5th booking

    Whilst the other 4 may or may not have been deserved the 5th was for putting the ball up his shirt as his wife is pregnant.

    It's one of those daft things I'm not sure I hate or love - When a foreign player, usually African or Hispanic, claims it's been their lifelong dream to play for Bournemouth, Burnley, Stoke etc.

    It just tittles me tbh, do they not realise how full of shit they sound?

    That is cringeworthy.

    Everything from diving, prima donnas, and the aspect of it being all about the player, not the team.

    A half half chant invented by an Indian Manchester City "fan" to be sung with Indian "liverpool" fans, to a game they'll watch on tv about a rival they don't know why they're supposed to dislke...

    Yup that's as close to the epitome of everything wrong with football as is possible,

    :roflmao What???!??

    This whole thing about covering fans' reactions overseas pisses me off generally. If I couldn't give a toss what a couple of plastics at their local pub in Lambeth did when we scored the first against Roma why would I give the slightest thought to how the Malayasian supporters club reacted?

    How's the Southampton supporters club in Goa going? :laugh:
