    Seems odd to say the least. Saw that match and looked like he told the guy his breath stank complete with hand gestures. Unless he used a naughty word too, cant for the life of me see how its racial abuse.

    Very worried myself. How long can it take to interview the people involved? Regarding Rodriguez surely they are not taking one person's word against another and there is more evidence,despite it looking like nothing on TV.

    I can still vividly remember the sound of the crack from the TV. Not nice to see anyone retire so early.

    The Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason has been forced to retire from football after medical advice in the wake of his head injury suffered during the Premier League match at Chelsea in January 2017.

    Mason suffered a fractured skull in a sickening clash of heads with Gary Cahill during his team’s loss and on Tuesday Hull confirmed the news of his retirement.

    Mason, who began his career at Tottenham, had loan spells with Yeovil, Doncaster, Millwall and Swindon before joining Hull in a £12m move in 2016. He won his sole England cap against Italy in March 2015.

    “Ryan has sought the guidance of numerous world renowned neurologists and neurosurgeons who have all advised that a return to competitive football is not advised,” read a club statement.

    “Ryan would like to put on record his thanks to all at the club who have aided his recovery to this point and he his is indebted to them for their support and compassion over the past 12 months.”

    Considering he is someone that I thought would be considered slightly injury prone, that is a serious haul

    I was at a talk this evening in my local library about Liam Whelan and at the end it was thrown open to the floor, one man said he was a man u fan and when he was a kid he was sent in to the Gresham hotel to give Matt busby a letter, he was over here to sign a player. He said meeting Busby was like meeting a saint. He said he was still a man u fan and that he'd love to say the same about the current manager, to shouts of "hear hear" from the crowd. :)

    @Niall As much as I agree with discipline, I do think unless the players were involved in an incident that involved a crime or police involvement, or they embarrassed the club in a serious way (I am not aware of anything) this should have been dealt with in house. West Brom like Liverpool have this weekend off and like Liverpool don't play until next Saturday afternoon.

    Forget my last post. I was even at the match where they beat Liverpool. Obviously that puts a different spectrum on discipline. I was not even thinking that a club would go away on such a short break after playing last Monday night.

    I heard they stole a taxi to drive to McDonald's or something like that. I'd classify it as boys will be boys and move on.

    They took the taxi to get a McDonalds and wouldn't be served. They convinced the taxi driver to get their McDonalds and while he was collecting the food, drove away in his taxi.

    I could agree with you if they were in their teens or very early 20s.

    They aren't.

    Professional footballers are essentially boys, most of them never grow up.

    Some crack in all fairness but I'd say the taxi driver would not agree with me on that.
