    Is now open and accepting nominations for the season ahead. As the media spotlight on SUFC intensifies expect the platitudes, nonsense and general fuckwittery to rise exponentially.
    Pundits, oppo managers and tired hack journalists alike who can turn a cliche like 'Sheffield', 'honest triers', 'hard to beat', 'gritty', 'workmanlike' etc. all are welcome here.
    Name and shame.

    If Garth Crooks isn't here by the end of August I will be amazed.

    Anyone who refers to "Brexit football" and/or insinuates that Wilder is a racist.

    I don’t mind us being referred to as a Brexit football team, people thought it couldn’t be done and it makes us unique.
    Also it has nothing to do with racism, although I agree some will see it as an insult.

    Brexit is just a lazy term though and is pretty much synonymous with failure now and it's not meant as a description, it's meant to be an insult, homegrown is better, still got two syllables and doesn't have the "car crash" connotation.

    That's assuming we're still all British Isles next season mind.

    Is that what he said? I didn’t get that far, he started well then said something along the lines of us being like Huddersfield because we play an English style but Norwich will be ok because they play a German style, so I switched it off

    Yeah went downhill, only two players that are good enough (no mention of our superb defence), need to spend but our model wont allow us, if we do we could end up like Portsmouth in Division 2 lol

    John Egan,Enda Stevens, David McGoldrick and Scott Hogan play for the Republic of Ireland. Ireland is, and will remain, in the European Union.

    Ireland is not, and never has been, a part of Britain. In the same way that the English channel isn't English and the Irish sea isn't Irish these Atlantic islands aren't British. Naming something doesn't give you ownership.

    Garth Crooks was a very decent footballer and gave us a fair amount of grief as a player .

    As a football commentator however , he is and has been for a considerable period of time , quite comfortably the most obnoxious , self opinionated and smug practitioner in this field I've ever had the misfortune to have to listen to .

    Oh, it's all so complicated. Ireland isn't part of Great Britain but is part of The British Isles. Not sure it helps, but jolly interesting ........

    Never understood why Venn Diagrams never took off

    Brexit football - A bold step against an established, stale old system. Started by a pub team in Sheffield. Rolled out across Europe by 2020.
