    .....and a small tribute to those who won it last season.

    Wish they'd done something about corners. It's bedlam, was in the PL last year and was in the Euros. And getting worse. Yet the referees will hardly ever do anything and therefore when they do it will be completely arbitrary and potentially at a significant moment - the West Ham game (and a Euros match that I can't recall which one) being a classic example.

    I can't see the bit where refs promise to stop being cunts.

    There have always been laws to prevent players doing these things, it's just that they haven't been applied in the professional game. It annoys me that we need things like this, when they are already there.

    But if you call them one, looks like you'll be off.

    A referee talking about the swearing said that he realises that players swear, for instance they stub their toe, miss a chance at goal etc. However if such swearing is directed at an official or another player and certainly in an agressive manner then the offender, be it a player or even a member of the management team will be sent off or sent to the stand.

    I can see Red cards Galore at the start of the season, being another reason for having a bigger squad.

    Need more than a couple of refs in the league.

    This has never and will never be equally applied. Rooney would never be on the pitch and the FA can't have that with one of England's heroes.

    It's being reported that Steve Bruce has resigned.

    Going back to Sunderland?
    Their fans won't be happy if he is.

    Opening day is looking better and better.

    Hull barely have a fit first-team player, they've made no signings of note, and now no manager. An almost certain 3 points is quickly becoming a guaranteed 3 points.

    Which makes me worried.
