    "The referee's an Onanist" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Longest serving managers in the 4 English Leagues: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49937633

    I had only the tiniest clue, but I got 25/25 because you get 3 goes at each of the 5 questions, and you can work out where to place managers through elimination. Reasonable fun.

    Saw a stat earlier - is it true? Southgate has lost just as many games as Hodgson but has been manager for 18 fewer games. Is that right?!

    Could well be true. Roy didn't lose any in qualifying. Just cocked it up when it mattered instead! <laugh>

    He got us to a Workd Cup semi-Final, so that’ll do for me over Roy, Sam, Sven, the Italian et al

    Yeah, fair enough, I was just really surprised when I read the stat (not that I follow the England football team that closely :p)

    I see Gazza's trial for sexual assault has started today with him taking the 'I wanted to give her a confidence boost' form of defence.

    Didn't he also suggest other passengers were making fun of her appearance. I think he used the term 'fat lass'.

    I think this is mistaken identity, I've never heard a Geordie use a term like that.

    I'm not sure why, but I'm also picturing Keegan saying 'I'd love it if she weren't a fat lass absolutely love it.'

    If she wasn't a canny lass then Geordies I know would say "fat lass"

    If the Bulgarian fans continue with racist abuse, and the ref abandons the game, does the score stand or is it a rematch behind closed doors?

    I feel a bit sorry for the normal Bulgarian fans. Those ultras in the crowd were only ever there to feed off this racism argument. I guess they all get tarred with the same brush.
