His behaviour in the executive seats left a lot to be desired, in my opinion. I was sat about 20 seats away (not in the executive area!!) and when Liverpool scored, he and his group were on their feet fist pumping and arms aloft. That's fine for the paying punter but it's not what you'd expect from the visiting dignitaries. He had Stoke owner, Peter Coates, and President, Gordon Banks, seated nearby.
I often sit in this seat or one around it and I've not seen behaviour like that from other team's bigwigs - and that includes the likes of Spurs' Daniel Levy and West Brom's Jeremy Pease.


So you wouldn't expect a Liverpool legend to celebrate when they score? Confused


I resurrect this topic because of an incident that occurred earlier this week.

David Beckham was in the Directors' Box at Stamford Bridge to watch Chelsea v Paris SG (Beckham's old club).
Security had to defuse a situation where a Chelsea vice-President took issue with Beckham for applauding PSG's first goal. Beckham was told to calm down.
There's an etiquette to being an opposition guest in the Directors' Box.

That sums up football - sit there and shut up if in the 'away' section. Vile game.

In context, imagine sitting next to all the Scarlets greats in the posh seats during an important cup game at Parc y Scarlets and Leicester score and Austin Healey is bouncing up and down. Wouldn't you want to batter him?

Sorry, I'll rephrase. Imagine seeing Austin Healey within 10 miles of Parc y Scarlets. Wouldn't you want to batter him?

On the footie subject, is it true Man Utd fans were singing about the Hillsborough disaster last night and canting something about murderers?

Your right really I guess. Can't see the harm in modest joy but it is a question of degree! I once had to go to a posh Awards ceremony  in London and Mr Healey was the MC - he was just the same as his public image ( at least he is consistent! ) ie gobby, sarcastic and no lover of the Welsh! Although it's all part of his marketing I suspect. 

Mike Brown could think of that when he retires! LOL

Seems part of the accepted wind up in football. I feel FA should clamp down and order a game behind closed doors for such conduct - it will only talk 2-3 matches to be penalised like that as fans will self police the clowns then.

Apparently they chanted something along the lines of "The Sun were right to call you murderers" or something similar.

There are sometimes humorous chants. Stoke were singing "Joe Hart has a flaky scalp" (because he advertises Head & Shoulders). He laughed and put his thumbs up (it's on You Tube).
They also chant "Let's all do the Wenger" and wave their arms around. This was in response to Wenger once having a tantrum at Stoke.

Mind you, they also boo Aaron Ramsey which I find uncomfortable.

This is unfortunately true - United have told their so-called 'fans' that it is not acceptable.

I read an interesting article recently, which recalled happier times - it seems that Shankly congratulated MU on their first European Cup, and mentioned close friendships between players from the two sides - though there were also unpleasant incidents. It's a good read:


Fortunately, we are a long way from that in rugby despite the occasional fracas... I doubt things will get any worse tomorrow than the Welsh fans telling the English what to do with their chariots (what a boring song, but it's the only one they have) - if we win.

If you want to see the difference between football and rugby supporters, choose any Premier League team's forum and have a look. If you think people can be mardy on Scarletfever, it's Play School compared to football fans who can be brutal if they disagree with your point of view.
