Didn’t think someone would outdo the West Ham fans. PAOK Salonika president walks on the pitch with a gun in his holster to confront the referee.

He'll say "errrrm, looks like he's got the gift of the gob too!", put on some sunglasses, yell out "yeeeeeaaaaahhhhhh" and then fly off into the sky on an electric tiger.

Pellegrino sacked. A bit late.

But if they can get the new manager bounce against West Ham then that will be huge for them.

I had no idea that if you qualified via the Europa league only then you don’t receive as much prize money the next year.

I’ve only just seen the 49 second version of this video. It appears that the only mature person in the video is clearly the 14 yr old girl. I would also assume that as the girl is telling her dad to stop it straight away before he even speaks to Jamie that he had already been goading Jamie before starting to record. I hope there is a police investigation into the driver.

Spitting at someone is common assault. A handful of councils have introduced by-laws stating that spitting is a form of littering making it eligible for a fine.

What I find confusing is how a lot of people seem to see spitting as worse than a physical assault.

Vinnie jones on talksport earlier went on a big rant about how disgusting it was and if it happened to him then he would chase the person down and pulverise him till he was black and blue. I’m pretty confident if that happened Jones would end up in prison whilst the person spitting at him would just get a fine or something.

I remember when I was a teenager(13-14?). A group of kids, probably about 5 years younger started trying to kick me when I was doing my paper round. I couldn't hit them as they were little., so I did a big cob on the leaders face. It was hilarious. They then ran off and returned with sticks. I decided to edit my paper route somewhat to avoid them. :fp:

Interesting to see how much less Celtic get than even United there, too. I don't know how much of that was that we made a banana split out of the group we were in. :lol:

Mark Hughes to Southampton.

Is he gonna be the first manager to relegate two clubs in a season? Clubs really don’t learn do they.

Has that been confirmed?

The same old faces just keep getting recycled around the middle/bottom of the Premier League. :lol:

I mean it makes sense, hes been there before.

Disappointed Pellegrino is gone, anyone is an upgrade from him - even Hughes....even Steve Kean!

Vinnie Jones is lucky that Gazza never spat in his hand.
