    Football now the latest subject of protests

    Today the main headline on the BBC website has been controversy over a proposed European football 'super league', and there have already been protests and demos in response to it.

    Over the past two years it's gone from Brexit (both for and against), XR, BLM, Kill The Bill and now this footie thing.

    Just one big issue after another!

    You missed off Cuthbert the Caterpillar cake. I'm marching for that!

    Steve Bray announced a return to shout various things like rejoin. He was seen Tweeting a few weeks back getting ready to use the rule of 6 for it...and encouraging people to get around the rules by gathering in as many groups of 6 as possible. So that's probably 2 groups then given the more recent political moves over vaccines... He might as well have a rule of 100 since no one is enforcing much anyway now.

    One description of modern Premier League football: twenty-two grossly overpaid blokes booting a ball about, watched by the many who are being grossly and cynically overcharged for the privilege.

    Pulisa... referring to another time, another place which can no longer be revisited: I'll keep my eyes peeled for those Egremonts.... I'm off, before everyone gets the pip.

    Vindication for 49 years of a complete apathy for football is finally mine.

    I've always personally found footie so overrated. Even hearing the din from the crowds and the commentators' constant hyperactive patter when matches are being shown live on TV really puts me on edge.

    Actually being present in the stadium at a match as a punter would be pretty damn terrifying for me, what with all the deafening din and the thought of getting my head kicked in if I accidentally looked at another punter a bit funny!

    I went to a few Birmingham City games as a kid. It was enjoyable then, but now ... hell no. Yes, it would be damned terrifying for me ha ha.
