    Andy Gray is a prick
    (Original post by dan)
    I concur.
    How fickle, coming from the "resident evertonian". Didn't he score for Everton to help them win the FA Cup in 1984 and the league and European Cup winners cup? :rolleyes:

    Absolute legend, class guy. Tragic that he didn't take part in the last world cup. Still one of the best left backs ever, if not the best.

    Roberto Carlos is better, but Maldini is one of the greats.

    NOOOOO...

    No way. Sorry, I'm not having that. He may score more goals, but as an all rounder, professionalism, defensively etc, Maldini is the man

    *questions why the so called supporters arent on the terraces watching the matches rather than finding ways to get around paying*...

    How can you truly support a team without actually offering anything in the way of financial or vocal support? :confused:

    If everyone supported their local team and went to games instead of buying manyoo shirts and watching sky then it wouldn't be as bigger problem.

    Its a shame to say but i think its true, it hasnt by any means been sudden, over the last 10 years the change has been dramatic.

    TV times used to be 3 o clock kick off, now there are hardly any, most clubs tickets are very expensive as it is and forever rising, ticket allocations for coorporats is going up and up (look at previous FA Cup finals), standing at matches is prohibitted, travel on matchday is hiked up to increase profits and many more examples.

    Without the football fans football wouldnt exist, simple. I think its a shame because there is too much love for the game to actually inspire any action, i wouldnt throw away my season ticket. It just seems that money counts for more than passion and in a sporting environment, with football loved throughut the Uk this is not the way it should be.

    I started this post after is saw this on the Guardian website:

    By Jason Deans / Television 05:53pm

    It's official: Sky Digital and NTL customers will have to subscribe separately to Sky Sports and Setanta to get all 138 live Premier League matches each season from August 2007.

    Currently the cheapest Sky Sports package offering four channels - with other entertainment and movie services bundled in - is £20.25 per month, for the first three months (rising up to £42.50 thereafter) while subscribing to Setanta's seven channel package costs £14 a month.

    This is just an example of how companies are trying the bleed the fans of every penny. They are basically stopping companies monoplising TV rights by dividing it out so you have to pay for separte channels. Its a joke.
    The creation of the Premiership has caused many of these problems. It was of course triggered by a desire for a more lucrative TV deal, which was secured and sent a flood of money to top flight clubs but left the lower divisons with the breadcrumbs, the financial gap between top and bottom has been increasing ever since.

    But that's never going to happen is it, you support who you want, not who you feel you should support...

    One philosophical argument is that it doesn't matter if you break the law in this respect because, by doing so, you can help change the law to a more reasonable position - or something like that.

    Maldini is absolutely majestic at left back, there has been no one better and probably never will be!

    fair enough, thats your opinion, but don't you think Roberto Carlos is weak defensively? Widely regarded as the worst player in the Brazil squad at the WC - their newspapers even described him as an idiot after the France game.

    Look what's with all the Motty-bashing? So he's excited like a,little kid, and says silly things at times, but thats part of his charm. All the great moments in football like world cups, FA cups have been special with motty's commentary. An insitution

    Not fickle. A fan can dislike one of their own players
