    IIRC word on the street at the time was that the CPS had made a bit of a hash of the trial.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    God bless Twitter, now for Frank Lampard to publically back Jimmy Saville on there, and Gerrard to call Bobby Moore an over-rated ****, and we're sorted.
    I have thought since before the Euros that Lampard, Gerrard and Terry had to go as they wouldn't be around/good enough by the time we play the World Cup. I can see why Hodgson is sticking with them as there aren't exactly a mass of young players looking capable of stepping up. Jack Rodwell is hyped up and he was awful for City the other day in the champions league.

    As for Cole, well Baines isn't exactly a crap alternative so if he goes so be it.

    I think the use of JT constantly, might be a clue.

    The case was about words Captain Racist and Twatley accepted he said, after several revisions of their story. So most of the fluff he says surrounding it is completely irrelevant. The court case was clearly ****ed up, Captain Racist got off because of that, not because he was innocent.

    10. All this, and I am aware that many had made their mind up about JT whatever the evidence, comes down to one essential point - if you make a racially based insult does that automatically make you racist, irrespective of the fact that it is made after what the FA stated was 'extreme provocation by the wholly inappropriate behaviour of Mr. Ferdinand?'
    11. I believe it is, though it is still not acceptable.
    12. As with Luiz Suarez, I do not believe JT is a racist. If you look at the proper definition of that word no player, especially a captain or leader of the line, could play for years within a multi-cultural environment as exists at most EPL clubs. In both cases scores of statements from players and managers of all creeds and colour stated that neither player was racist.
    These points I vehemently disagree with.

    Firstly I believe these so-called 'racist insults' are so MASSIVELY overplayed it is beyond belief. A lot of the time the context makes it obvious that someone is just using whatever things comes to mind to identify a person. Whether they be black, white, green, ginger, bespectacled, bald, big-nosed or whatever. An awful lot of throw away remarks that people come out with fit into that category. It is also entirely wrong that a racial element in those circumstances means a slap on the wrist becomes a persecution for the rest of their life. This is where I'd differentiate between Terry's case and Suarez. If you repeat the term over and over then it goes beyond the throw-away remark/outburst. Of course Terry is almost certainly still a racist anyway but that's not the point here.

    12. Is such a steaming pile of crap it's beyond belief. Glossing over the oxymoronic term multi-cultural which is bull**** speak, people aren't that stupid that they make it obvious that they're a racist. Lots of people, if not most people in the real world have layers of societally acceptable behaviour before you get to the morally bankrupt character underneath. Suarez and Terry are no different. Everyone knows they're both absolute scumbags. They're both almost certainly racist.

    Because the t20 final was dire turned over to the football match, not a bad move.

    Don't know what the **** Fergie was thinking recalling De Gea for this game. His Lindegaard in Prem/De Gea in CL was working fine, why bring him back away to one of the most direct+physical teams around?

    That looked over the line for all money in real time, but on replay the decision was probably right.
