    I really don't like the 'sacked in the morning' or similar chants... I know people will say it's only 'banter' but IMO it's quite personal, I hate when fans call Rooney etc fat or any other personal insults too

    Football fans are a classy bunch at times

    Rooney is "fat" for a footballer. His weight is a problem. Just can't lay off the pies. It's part of his job to stay fit and be able to run, not waddle across the field. The fans are paying his wages and so deserve effort and discipline from him. Anything that is nothing to do with the football is personal, but his weight very much belongs to the fans paying for it.

    The irony being that the manager being sung at will get more in compensation than the chanters will earn in a lifetime of 9-5's.

    Yeah, my heart bleeds for the poor bastards.

    Apologies for the c&p, you'll get the idea:

    As you may already be aware, Anne Williams has been diagnosed with cancer and its terminal. There is no reversal. She is now in a hospice in Southport and still, whilst in need of rest and recovery, is pushing her case to get the inquest for her son Kevin going.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-20203582

    Anne herself, whilst she should be recovering, has been using Twitter to try and get things going. She's been at this stage where the Attorney General has had all the evidence three times without progression. Read that again. Three times

    I donít ask as a Red on the other side of Stanley Park with an angle of solidarity as already shown so brilliantly by Everton Football Club. I ask as a simple man of the world who feels a mother who lost her son and is now losing her life should have her lifelong battle for Kevin fulfilled.

    Please could you promote the below petition on your site and sign? Weíre under a third of the way there. We just donít know how long Anne has.

    The below was written by a fellow Red and has been around some of the other forums. It may be too much, it may be too little but it is a start to hopefully getting Anne Williams some comfort and indeed justice.

    http://www.redandwhitekop.com/forum/index.php?topic=299436.0

    Kindest regards and thanks in advance
    Harinder

    petition link - https://submissions.epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/40925 - and sign for Anne.
    tl;dr: sign the petition.

    Wait, I thought you of all people were against chants against managers?
    Or is that just against Wenger? :D

    Well that was painful. Don't get me wrong I know we're not playing great but we just don't seem to be getting any luck either. Clear handball in the build up to WBA's first goal not given and we have a clear penalty waved away in the second half.

    Time to draw a blue line under that one and move on to Swansea on Saturday.

    @The-Bodybuilder 'Sacked in the morning' chants are one thing. Those chants at Arsene are completely different and no manager should have to be subject to them. Vile.

    And yes, the rapist chants against certain players, even if they are mammoth cunts, are out of order.

    Martinez at Wigan is a great example (although I know you aren't his biggest fan) because staying in the Premiership with a club of those resources after years of selling off their best players is nothing short of remarkable.

    Not to mention the work he did at Swansea which has served Brendan Rogers very well.
    You've confused me with morriss. I'm almost literally his biggest fan in fact. Was my top choice for the Spurs job in the summer.

    Heh.

    What I really like about Martinez is his ability to identify players. Seems to do it again and again. His best players keep getting bought (Baines, Valencia, Palacios, Moses) and he keeps replacing them and not getting relegated. And yeah, I like his approach to football.

    I honestly think he's very similar to AVB but has a better understanding of the Prem and is generally an easier guy to get along with. I'd have him in a shot when AVB inevitably gets sacked (my guess would be around this time next year).

    thats what makes football fun, and less cuddly handshakey like rugby.

    Just reminds me of Human Centipepe. How many poors kidnapped backpackers are feasting off Wengers waffle? :/

    That film has ruined me.

    About AVB or Martinez? :p

    I'm not writing off AVB yet, but it's not looking good. The main problem is that he'll never be given the time or resources that he really needs.

    As for Martinez we won't know what he can do until he goes to a bigger club. Think he deserves a shot though. I just get the sense that he'll work better with Levy as well.

    AVB is looking fine. I don't know how it's 'not looking good', tbh. Judge him with a full squad for a start!

    But yeah, I underrated Martinez.

    I just mean his general prospects. So much focus on his every move and massive overreaction to every bad result (and a weird amount of radi silence for achievements like winning at Old Trafford). Plus talk of internal difficulties is getting louder and louder.

    Can you see him still being in the job in two or three years? I can't.
