Indeed.
Hope Sky Sports get rid so I never have to listen to that awful droning Scouse accent of his.

Just read about this.... very unsavoury. A difficult call to make, but sacking is justified.

So after essentially being given a public funded stadium for next to nothing, are West Ham also not responsible for the stewarding and security during their games?

Fucking hell, they are essentially the first nationalised football club then?

They're just following the very successful model established elsewhere in flogging off public assets for nothing - nationalise the risk, privatise the profits. It's worked very well for the banks, railways, utilities etc. Another brilliant triumph of Boris!

And a dangerous driving charge for the fucker driving along with his kid in the car filming it all.....

Not condoning Carragher in the slightest, but it never ceases to amaze me how many thick twats put up videos of themselves breaking the law when the lure of a few quid rears its head!

If you watch the footage she was asking him to stop, so two grown up fuckwits and the only one with any sense was the 15 year old girl.

Fucking hell this Carragher  and West Ham bollocks is bringing out the best self righteous nonsense from football supporters on social media today!

I had the misfortune of reading some of the twitter comments below Carragher's apology.

It was just a load of pathetic Man U and Liverpool fans in a petty game of 'oneupmanship'.

I swear approximately 70% of the human race are just morons.

Nothing should detract from the fact, regardless of circumstances, that a young girl was on the receiving end of a face full of gob. Unpleasant in the extreme plus the associated health risk.

Sky have got rid of people before, just for comments made on air.
A quiet word and a slap on the wrist is not the answer in this case.

They have also kept people on convicted of drink driving.

Very true.
Dare I say it that Kirsty Gallagher might be of more "interest" to a Sky viewer than a Frank Mclintock or a Rodney Marsh.
And "veteran" Clare Tomlinson is no doubt grateful to be mainly tucked away on the late night SSN slots.

Gary Neville has spoken out in favour of "Carra" apparently.

I know you'll all be shocked by this but it turns out that not only are the Premier League and Football League's "owners and directors test" (formerly Fit and Proper Persons test) not worth the paper they're written on, but even when someone does actually manage to fail them, they're not enforced. I was shocked, shocked I tell you!

Didn't Readings new owners fail to meet the PL test when trying to buy Hull and then shortly after pass the FL test to buy Hull....

Its nonsense...
