Is it right that Bayo has been fined for wearing a Liverpool shirt to training!



  • No, I think it is wrong.

  • Very unjust.

  • Eh eh kerm down.

  • Wrong to fine him.

  • I'm probably in the minority here then... all players support other teams, but he's currently a Wycombe player

  • He knows the rules. He said in his video he was happy to pay the fine

  • I latched on to the ambiguity in @yorkyblue’s question/exclamation to make a rather feeble joke.

  • But, thinking about it - yes, a fine would be disproportionate. A socially distant word in the shell-like might be appropriate but surely Bayo has licence to say, wear and do what Bayo likes!

  • They have a fine system for all sorts of things, let's the senior players keep everyone in line with a bit of humour thrown in rather than it being the manager all the time, Bayos was a fairly deliberate obvious paying up front, I'd guess it was a fiver or something not a weeks wages, nothing to worry about.

    Is that a Scouse accent @Ozzie_the_Relaxed ? I picked up a whiff of whining wining Jamie Carragher.

  • Lots of sports clubs have a token fine system amongst the players. I'd guess this was part of that.

    Nothing to get outraged over but this is 2020

  • Imagine waking up less than a week ahead of the first play off game and wanting to wind up one of our key players because of the shirt he put on.

  • I always think the fact that players (and managers) are fans of other teams must make for an interesting undercurrent. Who else do we know?

    JJ = Cardiff
    GA = Blackburn
    Nick Freeman = Arsenal
    Bloomers = Ipswich

  • I believe that the "fines" for minor offences are usually who buys the biscuits? Move on, nothing to see here moment.

  • Grimmer: United

  • Blooms is an Arsenal fan

  • Scotty Kashket's a Spurs fan.

  • JJ and Kashket are Spurs fans

  • The "fines" system is all a bit of fun and good for team morale.

    Anyone who saw Bayo's Instagram post on the subject would have seen it was all adding to the general bonhomie and "banter"

    So with Bloomers/Ipwsich and JJ/Cardiff it is more of a "boyhood club" thing?

  • Also, on a related note, I assume a lot of you grew up in Bucks. What was the mix of supporters like there growing up? I grew up in Hertfordshire, and the other kids at school were probably 60% Arsenal, 20% Spurs, and then Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United fans for the rest. I knew one Everton fan and that was it.

  • Went to DCGS in Amersham and there was the usual mix of Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs fans (typical teenage glory hunters) along with a fair few Liverpool fans (it was the 70's after all) but also a couple of Wycombe fans (one of our PE teachers played for Wycombe - 76-78 if I can remember rightly) plus a fair few Watford fans plus lads that followed Chesham Utd & Slough Town

  • I went to RGS in the 00s/10s and there were SO MANY Gooners.

  • Growing up in the 80s there were plenty of Liverpool glory hunters but also plenty of QPR, and Watford, especially out towards Amersham/Chesham way. Still the case today

  • Terrible thing to do, however if he scores an hat trick on Friday I may just forgive him!

  • @Erroll_Sims Who was your PE teacher who played for us?

  • One of my old PE teachers also played for Wycombe... Dave Alexander, midfielder if I remember correctly

  • Aah, Dave Alexander. Stocky bearded midfielder. I remember one game in East London/Essex (?Barking) when he hadn’t been playing that well but got knocked out cold in the second half and, after “treatment” with the cold sponge, played a blinder for the rest of the game.

    Wellesbourne legend!

  • Geoff Anthony was my old PE teacher at Chesham Technical High. Wasn't he a Welsh Amateur International?
