    The best £20k Troy will spend to promote his budding lucrative future punditry career.

    Beer money for Troy - probably be quite happy to take another fine to say what he wants.

    I thought he would receive a ban so this is a good result perhaps.
    One of my players had some sort of Spiderman mask/balaclava on last night. Perhaps Gravy could use one to cover Troy's mouth in future?

    Seems like the ref involved in the Bournemouth game gave Luton a leg up by sending a Peterborough player off in what was a "horrendous" decision according to Steve Evans..

    Having said that Steve Evans would deny something was a red card if one of his players cut another in half...

    If we have to have a celebrity at number 9, I’d prefer Elton.

    Someone at the FA has a sense of humour. They've put the ref from the Bournemouth game in charge of the cup game v Newcastle on Saturday. I'm sure he'll think hard about Deeney's feedback.

    It'd clear someone at The FA (not Southgate obviously) has a soft spot for ol' Troy. Should have been suspended after his gesture against Chelsea last season and again for this really. Although I find it of no consequence what he said, The FA aren't known for having a sense of humour so I'm shocked he's escaped a ban yet again.

    This article irks me as it is praising him for making a “brilliant statement” and already showing the benefit of his actions for his media profile.

    Yes he was balanced in his remarks that both sides had bad decisions but he’s completely missing the point when he claims it’s clear there was no disrespect. Saying that the ref bottled it is obviously the problem and the club were fortunate he did not receive a ban. With a little tact he can still be open and honest without saying the ref bottled it.

    He even says that he might make similar statements in future. Perhaps beneficial for the player but potentially detrimental for the club as with previous statements which is not ideal from a club captain.

    I guess it’s nice be in a position to get a £20k fine and be able to nonchalantly brush it off as being a few quid lighter.

    It truly was a horrendous decision - should never have been a red.
     
  12. Looks like he has given up football and gone into business with Mooney...

    Somehow feel Helgusson should have been in on this.

    Hope no unpleasantness.
