I am sitting down watching The Supervet on SBS when who should bring his dog in on one of the segments? Lee Dixon.

Hes a machine and easily the best athlete seen in the modern game. I reckon he will be at Juve for another 2 seasons after this season and after that maybe the A League with his Australian connections :)

Can see him playing until 41/42 professionally. By then will have broken every goalscoring record.

I'm guessing there will be a lot of "nothing" and not much "all" in this season. Hopefully it will give a decent insight as to what has gone wrong

IIRC the year Man City did it they won the Premier League and set a bunch of records

There’s also the Leeds United one on Amazon too at the moment and a Dortmund one. The Liverpool fans might enjoy the latter cause they do talk to Klopp.

It's great that this is getting publicity. Can only help in stamping out this sort of behaviour in the future.

Not sure on penalties. At this level it would be unfair to penalise the entire club and its supporter base over the actions of a few.

I say replay the game behind closed doors and press criminal charges against the minority who were engaged in racial abuse. Ban them for 5 years and fine them 10000 pounds each plus force them to participate in reeducation programs. That should be a strong deterrent against future behaviour.

Fourth round qualifying round game abandoned due to racial abuse. England cannot be on a high horse after Bulgaria
England on a high horse? I've heard Southgate, players and pundits/journalists all say that there are problems with racism back home as well. The English had every right to speak up against the loud and continuous monkey chants in Bulgaria, where the coach said he hadn't heard anything and Bulgarian journalists were laughing at English journalists for bringing it up at the press conference. What a difference with what happened in England, where everyone, including Yeovil, immediately spoke out against it.
