LeeB, you are an habitual wong 'un, who accepts moderation as an occupational hazard, and presumably accepts quote fail in the same casual manner. We therefore feel constrained to commit you to the maximum term allowed for these offences: you will go to smalheathaliance.com for five years.

Silly question time, but Dean has often been standing at the back of the lower Trinity for home games for a slightly better view.

Could he stand there again, as he’s not in the dugout, or is he banned from the stadium?

Can anyone hear an echo?

I remember Chelsea fans hated Dean Saunders.  Think he was involved in an incident that broke Paul Elliott leg.

Elliot sued him didn't he?

Why the fuck did a fictional character from Corrie sue Dean Saunders? Even if he was the main character in one of the greatest headlines of all time?

Regards the length of time he will be banned, The Athletic mention Russell Martin being banned for a single game for a similar offence this week:

“What I said for the red card doesn’t need to be censored, it wasn’t swearing. He came over and said ‘I’m interpreting the laws of the game’, and I said ‘you should’ve done that earlier in the game’.

Thats quality from Smith and also shiws how thin skinned Moss is.

That red card and his standing up to Moss will get huge respect from the other managers who suffer at the hands of increasingly pedantic referees and match officials.

Calling the ****** a fat lump of meat with two bad eyes is not an offensive remark.

Deano and the rest of the club would be better getting an ex referee on the payroll simply to educate us rightly or wrongly on rule changes and their effect.  Sorry but we fucked up last night - Okay the rule is a farce agreed but we should have been fully aware. 

And before anyone starts I am in agreement that the linesman in normal times would have had his flag up.

Sorry, I couldn't disagree more. The rule hasn't changed. Last night's referee chose to interpret it in a way that no-one can remember ever having seen happening before, including every ex-pro, manager, pundit and initially an ex-referee who were in the media last night.

Also, as far as I know (it certainly was the case in recent seasons) every club is visited by a serving or former referee at the start of every season to discuss rule changes so this already happens.

Mings himself admitted  he got caught out so I wouldnt say i was talking bull.   You only have to look at free  kicks then the attacking players often line up in offside positions to begin with. 

I do know that this is an odd one, but I agree with Keown in that it was a legit goal with the whole thing being a sham.  The law is bound to be clarified and  modified.
