Dishonesty is an interesting concept nowadays. Even saw in court a bloke who ran from the law for weeks, then saw himself on a crime stoppers snippet on TV, realised his predicament and judge gives him a discount in sentencing as he "turned himself in". He only did it as he was sprung and half the state saw it.

Back on topic - Don't most teams in UK train on "open fields"?

I don't think the FA said anything about dishonesty. The club admitted a breach of Regulation 3.4 which states: "In all matters and transactions relating to the League, each club shall behave towards each other club and The League with the utmost good faith."


the manager actually told the truth.
Leeds probably should have just shut up and made no comment. May have been £200,000 better off.

Honest or stupid :shock:
It's mot honesty to admit something you've been caught doing. I wouldn't call a bank robber who pleads guilty honest. Would you?
comparing him to a bank robber. What he said in earlier statements that what he done was commonplace in leagues that he has been in.
I am sure this is not the first occurrence of it in Britain. I also think its stupid for professional teams like Derby to allow their critical training drills to be open to anyone.

So teams should build walls around their training grounds because someone is dishonest?

Commonplace in his country wasn't a defence for Suarez and isn't for this bloke either.

Again, admitting you're dishonest doesn't make you honest - it just proves your dishonesty.

Ows 0 Blades 0

Pretty ordinary but tight game with only one clear chance which fell to Hutchinson which was saved by Blades keeper. Big improvement since Jos Luhukay was sacked just prior to Xmas.

Steve Bruce is another Allardyce, always solid, but not hugely entertaining.

Given how bad we were and leaking goals under Luhukay, Owls fans pretty happy at the big improvements in results.

Appallng scenes at St Andrew's as Aston Villa's Jack Grealish was punchedb y pitch invader at Birmingham City . Very sad that Birmingham supporters chose to applaud this idiot.

EFL will be under political pressure to impose some heavy penalties on Birmingham City .

The supporter should be banned and full weight of the law thrown down on him. Don't see how it's fair to punish Birmingham city though.

Agree.

A friend of mine who was the stadium director at Wembley invented (and patented) the barriers installed there, which make it very time consuming to climb over and give the stewards time to intercept them. In an emergency they can all be dropped at the touch of a button. All grounds should have them and Noel will be happy and wealthy!

I think they have far more things to worry about in UK politics just now TBH.
Knife crime is the major issue away from some other Euro stuff.

See the nice person who punched Grealish got away with 14 week prison sentance and ten year ban from football. The ten year ban is joke he should have copped life ban from any ground in the UK.

Sounds like the courts don't waste any time there at least. He'd still be on remand here.

The case was so high profile they had no choice.

I trust the Gunner supprter will cop a lengthy ban.

The incidents that really annoy me are the gutless ones who throw coins at players , a nice person Owls supporter did that at the Steel City Derby, I hope he is caught charged and banned for life.

Can move pretty quickly if they are pleading guilty.

Birmingham have banned a bloke for life for a disgusting tweet so I'll be amazed if this bloke isn't also banned for life.

They just needed justice to be done through the courts first.

No, not really. We won't have numbers up there. Mainly because the game is Wednesday night.

95 was a lot of fun up there though.
