    Yes i remember TV commentators saying crap like "the crowd are lively tonight" when a black player was subjected to a torrent of abuse including bananas being at thrown at them .Cyrille Regis and John Barnes suffered dog's abuse at the time.

    Wolves now charging a fiver to go and watch a training session.

    Would be far better spent watching non league football.

    Not sure if someone else has mentioned it in the previous 118 pages, but I get sick of commentators apologising for any bad language the viewers might have heard. What do they expect, it's a fecking football match!

    Agree.

    Also why are they saying sorry for what others do.

    Would you apologise for the actions of someone else spilling another blokes pint.
