    "Daniel James' partner gave birth at 12pm and he played for Leeds in the Carabao Cup game which kicked off at 7:45pm".

    FFS, I used to do a morning's work in Nice and fly back for night matches.

    To be fair I never went to the birth of my first so he is one up on me.

    The second I wasnt given a choice (the preferred attendee was unavailable <laugh>) but it ended up clashing with the great north run. I ran the race, dashed home and took the good lady to hospital all in good time. I never got a newspaper story!

    I read that Smug, just highlights how our society is at present, anyone who is a perceived ' celebrity' only has to break wind in public and there's a round of applause ffs.
    Pathetic doesn't even get close.

    Billy Bottos Bottoms up club! That brings back the memories, must have been there dozens of times and I cannot remember a single visit without a fight breaking out at some point.
    Happy days for me as I was never involved, had to duck a few times though.

    He'll forever be in the ****house Hall of fame for me after that stunt he pulled playing for Wales. Prick pretended he was knocked out, genuine concern for his wellbeing all around the sporting world at that time. Ex players that were forced to retire because of head injuries coming out online during the game with fear of his well-being asking why he was allowed to continue playing? Because there was **** all wrong with him. Giggs came out after and said he was "using his street smarts" to get a bit of a rest, with a grin on his face.

    I remember Man U playing Liverpool the game after in the league, Van Dijk smashed through him, as he lay there in genuine pain, the commentator said "I guess he just using his street smarts".

    Leeds Bradford to London is a 49 minute fligh. So in short, no it's not amazing Danny boy.

    Didn't know about this. What a prick he is pulling stunts like that. No surprise that Giggs thought it was clever because he's a weapons grade helmet.

    Have a look on YouTube mate. One of tea videos say they were quoted by "The Sun", but both were actually live on telly. Both replays of absolutely no head contact and the manager saying what he said.

    The other blokes boot caught him on the shoulder, but he went down like a rag doll. Have a look at "Van Dyik,Dan James" its the game after in the leauge. Very tasty.
