So, like Ed joked about, if a bunch of mindless idiots decided to wear Liverpool/Man U/Spurs/Arsenal shirts, go to a game and cause trouble without the knowledge of the club, that's the club's fault, is it? So every supporter who goes to games at that club should be penalised because some idiots who don't necessarily support that club want to cause trouble.

Anyone causing or inciting violence at a match should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. That would deter the idiots, and make the game safer for decent fans.

No it's not the 'club's fault', but yes it is their responsibility. Certain clubs are known for having groups of fans who cannot control themselves and think they can do and act as they please. Why should it only be the law enforcement agencies who have to constantly deal with these scum. Football is all money, money, money, but clubs and the FA/UEFA/FIFA have to take some responsibility for the fact that it is the game that has produced this minority of hateful 'fans'. PL clubs are multi million pound concerns, and it is shame for the vast majority of fans who are perfectly reasonable, but if clubs are banned in the face of such violence then they will soon pull their fingers out and pump some cash and effort into taking responsibility for the small section of their fans who cause this havoc. A poxy 22 grand fine is a joke.

And while we're at, certain national sides who also are known for violence/racism should also be taken to task and banned from international competition. Full stop.

There I've said it!

The biggest signing of the summer so far:

Looking forward to seeing who the club bring in now with the new wage structure declaring a statement of intent.

Then those clubs need to be encouraged to deal with these idiots.

Football is all money, money, money, but clubs and the FA/UEFA/FIFA have to take some responsibility for the fact that it is the game that has produced this minority of hateful 'fans'. PL clubs are multi million pound concerns, and it is shame for the vast majority of fans who are perfectly reasonable, but if clubs are banned in the face of such violence then they will soon pull their fingers out and pump some cash and effort into taking responsibility for the small section of their fans who cause this havoc.

Football has always attracted violent supporters and it's taken years to get to where we are now, with further to go. The easiest way to reduce this is to prevent these idiots from getting anywhere a stadium at all.

And while we're at, certain national sides who also are known for violence/racism should also be taken to task and banned from international competition. Full stop.
Agreed. But that's a FIFA problem.

That'll bump the price Madrid will have to offer.

Either that or they don't plan on paying his salary for too long. It's what we should've done with Can, agreed to his buyout clause then flogged him rather than letting him leave on a free.

Its a 2 year extension on his existing deal, pay rise, and an increased buy-out clause. All it means is that Spurs will get more cash for him when he scores against Belgium in a few weeks time. If Kane is still at Spurs in 2 years time I’ll relinquish my mod badge and hand it to Scamp.

200k is still too low for him, but at least it shows willing from Levy.

Apparently the bonuses at Spurs are very good, so probably gets him close to the higher paid stars like Ozil on 300k.

He's trying to make you feel like you've been shafted again......

After all, you're getting used to it since the arrival of the Glazers, Moyes and Van Gaal.

We’ve won a European Cup since the Glazers arrived. How’s Kroenke worked out for you?

Kroenke's done okay. The problem in parts was getting Arsene to spend the money he had available......

So you think Kroenke’s done ok? No titles, no European trophies, going backwards in the league...stop me if I’m missing something?

And we did say that this “Scamp Scale” chomping thing (which doesn’t apply to you, for some reason) wasn’t going to be a thing this year. It prevents any debate and means this becomes a sterile forum where people can’t call bullshit or question anything any says ever, for fear of being accused of biting by a dull one-trick-shtick tit. It defeats the point of the whole thread, and I think I speak for everyone when I say it’s now just deeply irritating.

The only one who does this is you. Stop being such a childish ****. And for the sake of the stars, that’s the C word.
