Re: Peter Kay... car share.

I get what you are saying Ben. It has been said that ‘comedy writing’ is exactly what you have said, rehashing old material.

Re: Eric Dier banned for climbing into stand

Grealish and Walker were not in a football stadium at the time. Probably judged to be violent or aggressive behaviour in a match scenario. Doesn’t matter that it was after the final whistle. Guendouzi is a lucky boy if he get’s away with it, mind you Dier’s actions were some time ago so who knows if...

Thanks for your comments guys. Just wanted to see what other folk thought. I’m not into the blame game myself and Tarks is my favourite player.

James Tarkowski, at fault for the equaliser!!

Discuss. As I’m now on my way to work, I’ll just give you my take. Elementary mistake, rooted to the spot when everyone else stepped out. Tarks played Egan onside. There was a big gap between Tarks and the nearest other Burnley player.

Re: Burnley plan to take the knee

Nothing stopping someone to stand proud against racism, but now is the time to show ‘your way’ of doing it differently to BLM. There is plenty of room to protest against racism in different ways, but at least come up with an alternative show of solidarity if you find ‘taking a knee’ so problematic.
