Karen - What's your honest view then of the Rainbow Laces initiative, it's easy to say I'm living in the past and the World has evolved but come on, rainbow football laces, honestly, whatever next!

Loosely - What's being bigoted about questioning the ridiculous Rainbow Laces campaign, this is football we’re talking about, a man’s game originally intended for the working classes although, sadly, that’s no longer the case is it

I'm afraid you are wandering off topic again Rhodesly. Maybe time for you to make an appointment with your GP so he can up your meds.

Loosely - Thomas Hitzlsperger is instrumental in the Rainbow Laces campaign if you hadn't realised:

And...?

 

Honestly Rhodesly, I think you are having a brainfart, one moment wanting to talk about working class football and the next something that is already known about the Rainbow Laces Campaign.

 

Tell me, do you often find you have gaps in your memory, sometimes find yourself struggling to remember what you were doing?

Loosely - What's your honest view of rainbow football laces having grown up in the 70's watching your Bremner's, Giles's, Hunter's, Harris's, Storey's and Tommy Smith's.

To be fair,why do I need to know if Thomas hitzelsperger is gay or not?
Why does he really feel the need to promote his sexuality

Loosely - Why does it say it all, how about answering the above, what do you really think of rainbow football laces

Rhodesly - how about you start answering a thousand or so questions people have put to you first eh?

 

Maybe I'll get back to you when I see some progress.

Loosely - It's a simple enough question though, what's the problem answering it, what's your view of rainbow football laces having grown up in the 70's watching your Bremner's, Giles's, Hunter's, Stiles's, Harris's, Storey's and Tommy Smith's, the game is barely recognisable now isn't it.

My own personal view is that its unlikely anyone would notice laces because of the multi coloured boots players wear these days. Not being a fan of symbolism I think its a rather silly idea.

Just think how these would have looked with a pink day-glo right boot and a lime green day-glo left boot

I see that Manchester United, Tottenham, Sunderland, Norwich, Southampton and Watford, to name a few Club's, refused point blank to get involved in the Rainbow Laces campaign, can you blame them:
