    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.

    I know that Norwich are a pretty noddy club (highest replica shirt count i've seen outside of the Emirates) but this takes some beating for shit modern football behaviour.

    First division leagues with too many clubs. Should be 16-18, period.

    Non-existent compensation payments to football clubs if a player gets severely injured in a NT game.

    Too many NT games.

    Mino Raiola.

    City and PSG.

    That's literally the opposite of things you hate about modern football, most leagues have actually got smaller over time :slap:

    I hate having to listen to Steve McMinimum's non-dulcet tones every time a United away game is on S*y or BT. He was even doing the match on Sunday between Everton and United, just exactly what made S*y think either group of fans would want to hear his opinion?

    The only good thing about the Amazon test was that it gave you the option to turn off the commentary completely.

    Steve McMananman is absolutely horrendous to listen to, both for his voice and his opinions.

    Managers/Teams that don’t take the domestic cups seriously, yes Mr Klopp I’m talking about you.

    And yes Mr Rodgers beware !.
