    September kickball: The RESPECT edition

    A little late, but whatever. At least it's in time for the international break, everybody's favourite part of the season.

    Coming up this month we have MK Dons and Wimbledon being chippy at each other, the MAGIC OF THE CUP returns as qualifying rounds are under way with glamour ties such as Thatcham vs. Salisbury, the first every women's Manchester Derby (I think?) and the Champions League group stages are BACK to be mostly a bit dull.

    Meanwhile, in Italy, Inter Milan fans have said that unlike other countries Italy doesn't have a racism problem and Cagliari fans are only doing monkey chants because they respect black players so damn much.

    Yeah, I was going to start something with the Inter fans as the theme. Fucking mental.

    You have to understand that Italy is not like many other north European countries where racism is a real problem



    Also, are there random AFCON games going on during the week after this international window? Soccerway seems to think so, are they mistaken?

    Also if a modmin could change the poll title so it doesn't have that stray 'l' in front of 'show' that'd be grand.

    I had 'It was an inverted "Mobot"' ready to go as my excuse for racially abusing Danny Welbeck (should the opportunity ever have arisen), but they might have topped that.

    I would like to see players from both teams, if a player suffers racist abuse. To walk off the field and refuse to play the game.

    That will never happen though.

    It's astonishing that a team hasn't walked off yet. I'd like to think that if i heard a teammate receiving racist abuse, I would take my team off.

    Did you read what the fan group said though? They weren't being racist, in Italy things are different.

    Yup. Incredible stuff. The Italian FA aren't going to do anything meaningful, the fans clearly dont care - so unfortunately, it's down to the players to act.

    Hold hands, and just walk off. If players can produce tears, even better.

    While it’s great that Parrot has the chance of more senior action by making the Tottenham European squad, have they really gone a whole summer and left him as the only other striker after Kane?

    Whatever about anyone else the Walters "crying on TV about his family" shows what a cretin he is. He's a publicity whore no matter how much he denies it, so shit like is an attempt to stay relevant because he has no future in management.

    The best part about that article was him accusing Walters of living off things he did ages ago, as if Keane has done anything of note since about 2002. He's fucking hateful.

    He's been having a fresh go at Ferguson today too, so as you say he must have felt the media offers beginning to get a bit thin on the ground and he's doing a bit of shouting to remind people he exists.

    And vaguely related to the thread sponsor, Paddy Power Esq makes a good point regarding the fine Huddersfield have been hit with for that stupid kit they wore in a friendly in the summer. 50k for that, 10k for racist chanting. Priorities.

    When you see it, you’d near pity him if he wasn’t such known vermin. And the amount of wankers lapping it up too.

    He’s about as Irish as GS but Callum Robinson is a fairly tidy player.

    I watched that Roy Keane thing in full, and it nicely shows why 1) he's a massive United legend; and 2) he won't ever be a decent manager.

    As someone, I can’t recall, said on the radio earlier he’s built a persona and is desperately trying to stay fitting into it now. He’s some fucking neck talking about commitment though.

    Whether or not he's into rent-a-quote territory, I don't think it's a persona. That story about him drunkenly coating off half the Liverpool team in the nineties would suggest he's always been like this.

    I could do with him not telling everyone to get over everything he's ever said/done to them when he's still moaning about sleights that pre-date the Good Friday Agreement.

    Can't remember when it was but someone said Roy Keane loves football but hates footballers which seems bang on and why he'll never succeed.

    He'd probably have more success and a happier life moving back to Cork and coaching the local kids.

    It makes sense that Maguire has yet to play in the Champions League, but I still bumped into it when voiceover man said it there the way a toe bumps into a table.

    Roy fucking Keane on the coverage. Hopefully he chokes to death live at half time.
