First off, that was a decade ago, and second off, that was for actually being 100% promoted back to the top devision for the first time in years, not for avoiding a relegation that no one expected, or for making a play off final.
And even then we arguably shouldn’t have done that ether (although this one was expected/planned for and was at full time so at least the players and such knew what to expect), but at least that wasn’t 5 cases within 4 days, some causing some major issues with violence/conflict.

Yeah well that’s the issue isn’t it. As in a perfect world, fans could watch their team train and invade the pitch when they had a major win, as well as the leagues actually being competitive and such.
But that’s not the case whatsoever, as if “fans” watched teams train they’d see inside tactics and spread it, as well as pitch invasions causing major harm/issue to many and the PL is unfortunately a far from competitive league.
But what annoys me is that these issues were practically all caused by just a few people, yet because of them it’s ruined it for the rest of us, and has continued on to become a rule/way it’s been throughout our lives.
It’s just that some of these issues are are preventable, hence why we solved them by doing stuff. And the issues of security at games is something that is p*ss poor, but also something that’s understandably hard to do. As at an airport you gotta que for ages to get past security, so that they can make sure everything’s ok, but at a football stadium, not only are the amounts of people wanting to get through higher (especially at peak times like 15 minutes until KO) as certain times, but also many of those will be drunk idiots that are the causes of 99% of major issues at football games.
As stadiums are never gonna have the same tech as an airport or such has for security, meaning that people will find a way to get in flares, drugs, alcohol, weapons etc. some certainly cause a lot less harm than others, but all it takes in one person to get in, get onto that pitch and use that weapon for it all to go bad.
And at the end of the day in the world we live in today, people rarely pick what as right/fairest for everyone, as they almost always pick what’s easiest. And for situations like this, the FA are only gonna put up fences or introduce points deductions for pitch invasions as they’re the only easy ways around them so that they stop and nothing happens.
As if it’s just a few fans trying to get into the pitch, then the stewards usually stop them and the players know where to go/can get away if they feel threatened, but when it’s a few thousand, it’s just not possible.

But there’s been like 4 pitch invasions this week (as you had this one, and a few others in the EFL playoff games) and you say it’s a “massive jump”, when it only took one disaster for seats to be a necessary, yet there’s been multiple incidents in just a week with the issues around this. And it’s basically certain that the FA will be looking at these issues right now, it’s just the question is of if they do anything and if so what is it?

As yeah I’d also love to run on the pitch and get involved etc, but I’d also like to speed, not worry about wars etc, but due to a few idiots that take it to the extreme and ruin it for the rest of us, I can’t.
As yeah some pitch invasions there’s been no issues for, but all it takes is one time where a player/coach/official or even fan to be attacked and seriously injured (which has already happened once/twice this week alone) for this to become an issue. As what happens if next time a fan brings a knife into the pitch and goes for a player on the opposing team or a match official? As no one wants that, but all it takes is one idiot and the issues are there.
As unfortunately we don’t live in a perfect world meaning that sometimes, as much as many may hate it, we have to have stricter rules so that we reduce the risk of anything serious happening for both sides sakes.

Well like what happened in the Liverpool game, they usually play on, it’s just usually the tea takes get the ball/it goes out of play, meaning that they get treated and the game is halted.
Although you are right as some don’t always do this, but most do.

Well if was the game with the image I’ve seen then fair enough, but at the same time if the dirty player didn’t go down soo often and consistently, then no one would’ve criticised him for it. It’s just like when you do it soo often, people just think that it’s always simulation, and never an actual injury.
And yeah I agree that he is a top quality player, but just because your at the top, doesn’t mean that your not embarrassing by some of the other things they might do, as he’s by far the worst diver in the prem( as at least other decent players that do it don’t do it to the same extent as he does)

It’s embarrassing that soo many people have to run on the pitch for firstly coming in a position that they should never be in for what they’ve had/have at their disposal, yet acting like they’ve won the champions league, and also for all the issues it causes for everyone else.
As if fences get put up and all the other annoying this could cause, mainly due to situations like this (which could all have been easily preventable as if they stop the first few from getting on then many less will be able to) which can also cause many other issue like players/coaches/officials getting attacked which will only cause even more issues.
So why should the rest of us have to suffer just because of a few teams? Hence why points deductions/games behind closed doors should be introduced as punishments for when like over 50 people do it at once.

And all of this is due to some result that many would of expected at the start of the season, as I don’t think the odds of Everton staying up and beating palace at home were very high

Because it all came from when Richarlison dived and Carragher (who yes can be an idiot at times) called him out for it, and criticised him for it (which he deserves). As yeah Salah, Mane, Son, Fernandes all do also dive lots, but not to the same degree and margin as Richarlison does. As they’ll all mainly dive in the box and might exaggerate a hand in the face, but Richarlison will dive anywhere and will also go down with a pinki thinner making contact with him.
As more commentators should call out the divers for what they do, and it’s not like yesterday makes up for how much of an embarrassment Richarlison is to the game

Just embarrassing that they do all that for only just managing to stay in the prem when having a squad/funding that should be getting them in Europe! I mean it’s just pathetic!
As when we beat Swansea, in what was basically a playoff game, that was the night that we basically secured staying up, and yeah we were happy but not acting like we’d won the champions league like this embarrassing lot.
Fair play to Vieira though for teaching that Everton prick a lesson

Renew my ST or not?

I only still get one as the person I go with gets there’s cheaper when I get one as well (due to personal reasons). Meaning that as much as I miss out on many games due to my officiating, which 9 times outta ten I’m happy I was doing rather than being at St Mary’s! It’s still cheaper/better for me to have one anyway.
But if it wasn’t for the fact that it’s just an afternoon/day out, then I probably wouldn’t go. As I very rarely go to games just for the game, with no pubs/town before or after the game as they’re just a waste, and if your just going to watch the game then why not just do it on TV, as you get just as much atmosphere at home as you do at St Mary’s unless your in the Northam or Itchen North.

But like Franny’s Tash said, I mainly have them for the away days out in London and the likes of Bournemouth next season. As well as any decent cup runs/derby games we might pick up every once in a while. But for most other away games, they’re just a day when you spend a majority of it in some form of transport board, then see some crappy game and are miserable the whole way back!
Hence why it’s only really teams within a few hours away I go to for your typical league games, as I’ve been to most stadiums and will see a few new ones every season, but don’t go to many for multiple times too often as then you’ve not spent just as much time in your car as you have had watching a poor game.

Don’t get of why we can’t go for Henderson or Pope (especially if Burnley go down!) next season? As they’re both proven in the prem, and are both great keepers that really would help to start solidifying our defence. As yeah they may cost a pretty penny or two, but if we’re to avoid any relegation battles next season, then we’ll certainly need to spend a bit and need a decent keeper

If Ralph is sacked in the summer, who do we get in?
at 15:14 18 May 2022

Well that’s one of the reasons I made this poll as I’d really be interested to see of which mangers people really want in to replace Ralph if he goes. As like you said, non are any major standouts, and that means that if we do sack him, we’re ether going with someone that’s not much better, or taking a risk on a foreign manager that won’t have much/any experience in the prem.
ether way it’s certainly risky

Yeah well like I said in my original comments, I’m going to the Leicester game on Sunday, and if that’s a piss poor performance then maybe he does need to move on. As I myself wasn’t at the game yesterday, but just from how everyone’s reacted to the game I can tell that it really wasn’t good and that we should’ve done better.

It’s just I don’t think it’s fully down to Ralph, but at the same time I don’t think he helps his case by some of his decisions and isn’t necessarily the man for the job anymore. But I’m waiting until, the Leicester game to make up my mind completely on what I personally want

No that’s not what I’ve said. As I literally wrote a comment before this saying that we might wanna get rid of him now, it’s just that if we are going to do so then we need a manager with PL experience and really need to sort this team out, as without both (especially the team) then we won’t be competing whatsoever and will probably be in the relegation battles next season.

So if we do go for the likes of Shean Dyche or someone else with experience in the prem, then yeah I wouldn’t be as bothered. But if we don’t then I don’t see the point in sacking him.
As at the end of the day, who’s in charge is gonna be pretty irrelevant next season unless we sort this squad out, as with the way some of those players are performing at the moment, we’re certainly at major risk of going down no matter who’s in charge.

Because look at what happened under Hughes and Pellegrino. As we’ve got a squad that’s almost as bad as back then, and under those two, we were going down, whilst at least with Ralph we’ve never really been that worried about relegation towards any ends to the season. So if we get in a new manager the we need one that has PL experience
