As shit as I found the Barnsley skit, at least they don’t try and make movie posters for their home matches

I know everyone is bored of me going on about Wrexham, and next season I'll make my own thread so people can avoid me going on about them like we did with the North London clubs, but here is their mis

Well, It’s Barnsley. 

It's true, we still all stop what we're doing and point when a plane passes overheard...

I saw those earlier, tremendous photography. Also, where the fuck is he finding all these ace old shirts? He's probably wiped out both Classic and Retro Football Shirts.

Probably made from the original design. I'm sure some under the counter shop on Ebay could provide such a service. Absolutely sure about that.

There is a random Aussie company selling Barnsley ones, and I would imagine they do lots of other teams too...

Is it my imagination or has the football media been absolutely awful for knee jerk reactions and spectacular back-tracking for basically every team to grace the top six this season? As in, far worse than normal?

The weekend that Spurs played Chelsea for top spot, press were glowing over what a good job Lampard has done. A couple of bad results later, apparently there’s pressure on his job. Similarly when they were top, Spurs were getting lauded as legitimate title challengers and Mourinho getting praise for getting the best out his front two and “finding a system that works.” A run of three poor results later, and the footballs awful and negative and they’ll never win anything playing like that. OGS was being talked up as ready to be sacked about two weeks ago and now Man United are top - TOP - of the league. The peak of this absolutely short-sighted tripe was a little while ago the BBC ran an article titled “Relegation fears to European hopefuls - how Arsenal turned it around” (spoilers : they won 3 games).

I know writers can only write about form but it seems nonsense to me how in a very short period of time every team (apart from Liverpool, seemingly) veer wildly between shit and brilliant in the eyes of the football writers. There seems to be no restraint in declaring who’s getting sacked or who’s unstoppable based on an extremely short-term run. Is it just that the unpredictability of Premier League results is catching them out, or have they always been this bad? Or is it just in my head?

@air_raid It does seem worse than ever this season, and the knee-jerk reactions seep down to the supporters too. It's not just the top six teams. I only really read about Wolves, but a few months back Nuno won 'Manager of the month' and there were articles about if we could make another challenge for Europe. Since then we've had injuries to some of our most important players and a lot of our team is made up of unproven teenagers, and predictably the results have suffered. Now there are articles calling for Nuno to get the sack and asking where it all went wrong? Football journalism is lazy at the best of times but this season especially so. 

The BBC football site is always shite and only worth keeping an eye on for Garth's comedy team of the week section. You'd be forgiven for thinking Utd vs Liverpool was the only game on this weekend as it took up about 8 of the top 14 stories when I went to check the results yesterday.

Another thing I’ve only noticed this season is how the bar for what can be described as a “thrashing” has lowered somewhat. I’d always considered 4-0 a good result and 5-0 a thrashing. I’ve seen a few games this season described as a thrashing when a team has scored 4, even if they didn’t keep a clean sheet.

I read on the BBC the other day how Crawley had “thrashed” Leeds 3-0. I know it’s fucking Crawley, but still.

Nah, getting beaten 3-0, and that well, by a team in the bottom division is a proper tonking.

And when it's Leeds, very funny.
