    I've never heard it called anything different. I'm not sure it's that big of a deal, surely?

    Apparently not to an Italian on loan from the club that plays there.

    According to UEFA we play at the Hull City Stadium. Only plastics call it by a sponsor name.

    Is that why Bruce didn't take Europe seriously? The Allams didn't like the way UEFA named our stadium so they told him to lose?

    You see, I can just about forgive Meelan fans for calling it that, as Meazza was a much bigger player for Inter than them, but what really gets up my goat is people calling it The San Siro. You don't say The Anfield or The Old Trafford, so ****ing stop it with San Siro.

    Yeah I know you do with sponsor names such as The Emirates and The KCom, but they're sponsor names.

    When the game ends there's no controversy... whatever could he mean!!??

    Thinking about it we need the points, we've got an Italian player. They've got an Italian manager...
    It's in the ****ing bag this one

    I love that mixed metaphor in a discussion on pedantry. Maybe, you were kidding.

    It's 'gets your goat', unless you really believe someone is shagging your Billy Goat Gruff the night before a game. <whistle>
