I don't know the answer to that but looking at the number of BAME players in the game these days 8 seems a bit low.

Yes, but if say there were 28 BAME managers would that not mean that non-BAME managers were under-represented?

On Talksport last night, Darren Lewis, black journalist for the Mirror said that there has been a furore about SC being called "the derogatory term"  coloured, rather than black, how is that derogatory?  Would you call Chris Hughton black?  i would have thought that coloured would encompass anyone who wasn't IC1, or is that just me?

I'd just leave the black/coloured thing out of it and call him that entitled Knobhead

I don't know the figures regarding the respective categories so I can't help you there.

It has negative historical connotations.

At best it's old fashioned and it's not for one person to determine what offends someobody else.

Each to their own of course when choosing what language they deem fit, but I think it's ironic that people get uppity and offended themselves in return when people challenge them.

Accy game against Sunderland called off after 73 minutes yesterday.

Not sure what usual practice is but Andy Holt says tickets not valid for replayed fixture but assume that’s normal as he always comes across as decent as they come.

Once a game starts that's it, no refunds.

Rovers v Wimbledon back in the day was called off minutes before kick off after it only started raining at 2.00pm!!!!!! Then their players didd belly slides all over the pitch. Remember the game was rearranged for a weekend (free fa cup day??) and they were allocated just the first two vertical rows in the Darren end 🤣🤣

I remember being fuming as a ten year old at that, Dean Holdsworth, Vinnie Jones and Fashanu and co did it in front of the riverside seemingly to wind us up 

Was it the replayed fixture when fashanu threw the ball at a ball boy?

Good pay day again for Accy when the game is re-played.

Brilliant result for Accy that in terms of the coffers.

Ordinarily I’d be arguing that tickets should be valid but punters got 75% of a very good football match which “finished” in a score draw. Record number of fans through the door and the replay will probably be the same.

I’d be happy to pay twice if I was an Accy fan at that fixture.

And so it should be . Extra policing ..stewards ..bar staff ..all needs paying for .The only people who ll benefit are Accy season ticket holders ...free game ..so at one stroke their takings "ticket" wise are slashed .

I remember going to a game at Ewood one day when the weather had been just the same as yesterday. They gave it a go but it was ridiculous, there was more standing water than grass. it lasted  till the 40th minute when the ref said he'd had enough. We were losing 1-0 at the time so we weren't too bothered,  and no we didn't get our money back.

"Coloured" replaced negro I think. You certainly would not use that word anymore. The point about "coloured" is that it divides the world in to two---white and everybody else.

So white gets a classification of its own and everyone else has to be thrown in together. Its hard to avoid the conclusion that "white" stands for superiority on that basis.

Beside blacks don't want to be lumped in with people who are racially different, they are proud of what they are and deserve an identity of their own. The same goes for every other racial group.

That sign says it all, you have to be white to get in.

I don't agree with a lot of what Darren Lewis says on Talk Sport, he always seems to be banging the race drum and trying to create problems where they don't necessarily exist.

Prior to the World Cup he was trying to make a big thing out of the possibility of there being some racist chanting and saying that if there was any the black players should walk off the pitch (regardless of how the referee dealt with it or what the team had decided to do as a whole should it occur) and in general he appeared to be trying to differentiate between the black players and the rest whereas to me they're all "our lads" regardless of skin colour.

Agree . I often think that when I hear him speak.

Blackpool have allocated Sunderland 7,800 tickets for their New Years Day fixture after their initial allocation sold out in hours. Rumours also that if they sell those they will make more available.

Presumably Lancashire Constabulary will be insisting that the game is moved to 12 noon as that number of away fans at a ground is a safety issue? Or does that only happen at Ewood Park?

In the ‘temporary’ stand too. Oyston’s obviously made sure it’s got its safety certificate back for this earner (or not, knowing that lot).

at the game they said tickets valid for the reararanged game and can get a refund if you cant make it. someone said if they had played another 3 mins the result have counted.

Accy and Fleetwood both mid table and going backwards. Could be in deep trouble by season end if any of the surprise teams in the bottom four revive.

It appears that Accrington have the losing ticket in the EFL fixture tombola. Last Saturday they were at Southend and today at Yeovil. It makes a mockery of the notion that clubs prefer long distance games in midweek.

They do. But there are just a hell of a lot of southern clubs in League 2.

There are more southern based but at least ten clubs are within 100 miles of Accrington.
