Gets you a report and ban on pretty well most platforms - hope we have no gay fans. I say some horrible shit but I hope I dont equate being shit with being gay.
Its 2022 not 1952 :)
I missed that. Hardly have to do anything as far as deleting content and whatnot but when it happens, it's for the same reason, usually from a different person.
Not great.
Getting a bit sick of it.

Agree, I gave Niz my MoM but I expect Cumdog will get it.

Pre game, I would have snapped your hand off for a point. In reality that was 2 points dropped. Monty mugged Aloi$i with his 4222.

So Miller is going - We have cover and it isnt a position we need to stress over. Hope he is dumped for the rest of the season though. Snake left the field in tears when the crowd turned on him - wonder if Miller is made of sterner stuff? Quite a collection of ex CCM there now watching their careers grind to a halt.

We looked awful defending set pieces but in reality thats a game we deserved to win. Some of our attacking play is brilliant.

I reckon a socceroos front 2 of Dukey and Cumdog in the playoff would work Shame Arnie wont do it - pick a dud 34yo instead.
He is hardly a DUD. But I agree with your Yellow and Blue sentiments.

Did you delete my follow up post saying we're all Homo, adz? It was so someone could connect the obvious dots to sapiens and the conclusion that we all are of equal value.
A little too subtle ya reckon?

and irrelevant - he made a slur about sexuality not species.We as a general rule dont tend to be homophobic or racist. Sad that someone had to go there.
As Adz said, he shouldnt have to delete this stuff.
On a night when Victory fans booed an openly gay footballer the post is even sadder.

Obviously discrimination of any kind is primitive and unacceptable. It is a refreshing forum in that such things rarely come up

Agree, well said. Also we all (myself included) step over thre line sometimes - it happens, we move on

Anyhoo

Thinking more about what Monty is doing, the slight tweak seems to have worked and we are much faster in transition. There was one move in the 1st half that ended up with Niz in the box not quite able to get a shot away that was sublime to watch.

People will watch fast moving attacking football, the academy were brilliant to watch. Bigger jump to the AL but in the last few games it seems much more like it.

Its too simplistic to blame Ollie - hes the best midfielder at the club (sorry Niz). Those 2 in the midlle with these tactics could be really good.

I wonder how much Smith has added to the mix?

Jeez, that’s a bit rich coming from you FFC after some of the sh*t you post on here tbh. I couldn’t give a stuff about someone’s sexuality quite frankly and if that’s how you want to take it, so be it. Ben Homer is an absolute twat of a commentator, as are a number his other P+ colleagues in terms of how they disparage our club week in week out, so I am pretty sick of it. Poor choice of vernacular sure but the sentiment remains, the way he and others bad mouth the Mariners is unacceptable from people who are supposed to be unbiased. Quite honestly, the sanctimony from certain quarters is making this forum less and less enjoyable to be part of as the months go by, which probably explains me posting less and less.

I love this club and am sick of wankers like Mr Homer shitting on it, so my comments about him stand but if some want to make it about some other agenda, go for your lives. Quite frankly, 2022 doesn’t have much to recommend it over 1952 in many ways and just remember those that live in glass houses,,,,,,,

I knew what you were saying, don't take it personally. I was hoping to remove all posts around that topic apart from one, and say how disappointing it is to have to take this sort of action.

Happy to see Nizz and Ollie together, but I have seen enough of Nizz in the last two games to say that he must be the organiser with Ollie taking more of the defensive duties.

I have been wondering whether Ollie has been carrying a knock and is at last giving to time to recover fully, or maybe he is suffering long term effects from covid. His play before standing down looked as though he had aged or that he was tired from too many matches. The Club has been very quiet on the issue.

If this is so, he may be out longer and a better option would to bring Ollie back gradually on the wing where he could go all out and share with Beni. I was comfortable with Nizz and Max in the centre yesterday, both showed improvement.

Smith has added much to Cummings recent better performances, as has Nizz. Both are able to anticipate or see his runs early and provide. Our attack is becoming more dangerous each game.

The Smith assist to CD was top notch, Smith has added heaps in attack and is the main difference from now to what I call our mid season slump.

Monty keeps quiet on a lot of the injuries etc so not surprised we don’t hear much on this front. I’m glad the whole lost the dressing room rubbish has been shut down.

Scummer Homer mentioning Miller moving is just another example of his bias against CCM. We all suspected it and why did he need to mention it, it’s like sucked in you have lost a promising player. He continually brings up all our bad stats, such poor commentating. I even get the feeling Moss is not all that comfortable with what he says at times.
