#1358526 2 PL Players Set to Come Out

Posted by A.V.F.C on 02 November 2015 - 12:42 AM

Have avoided this thread, but I will comment.


I really hope it's true, the Premier League for all it's money grabbing, corruption and whatever else, is still the most viewed league in the world of football (the most popular sport in the world). I've been a football fan all my life, and believe me I have done the journey any prospective 'closet footballer' may have done.


Society has moved on a lot, but for example when I was younger and not out I went to a match between Villa and West Ham, they had just signed Matthew Upson (who was wrongly rumoured to be gay) and he got injured as he does in the warm up, he lasted seven minutes and when he went off he got chants of HIV HIV HIV. I promise i'll find the Youtube video to validate that even though it shames my own fans.


I come from a very strict catholic family, but every person has their own desires and their own attractions. When I first realised I was gay I fought it to the hilt, I thought of a wife and grandchildren. So I eventually came out and it was a huge relief but I had dark moments (darker than I could describe on this forum, but still I was proud and relieved) similarly, I was ao boosted about the reaction of members on here when they heard, all amazingly supportive.


I love the open minded members on here, and how they say it doesn't matter what someone likes, but if you've never lived it you can't comment with any authority. I would be so so proud of any footballer who had the balls to just go and say it. Don't think that report is inaccurate but I don't think said players would do it because who wants to go to a ground and get the abuse and the name calling....and it'll always happen.


I would love to see it happen, and whatever team even Birmingham i'd support that courage, but it's still a taboo in football even if it isn't in society. I know an Aston Villa player who is homosexual, not part of that report, and will never come out, and from someone who considered his own life in his journey to acceptance, I think that says a lot.

Enthralling stuff, tell us more

Of course buddy. He had a treble of Chelsea, Leicester, and Stoke. He won about 80 quid as AVFC said. Stoke won easily but Chelsea and Leicester struggled. Chelsea managed to turn it around after being down 1-0 and Leicester won it last minute. Man went mental, and I can't blame him. He won a bunch. :D

I'm struggling to come to terms with what we have acheived and how I am feeling at this time. Not really sunk in. The over-riding feeling at the moment is pride! Proud of the players, the manager, the owners, the city and everyone associated with the football club. Most of all I'm proud to be a Leicester fan, well I always have been in some ways but I now have a good reason to be.


Don't know where to start in analysing how we have done this, how as a club like ours managed to win the Premier League? Not just win it, but do it in such a dominant way. We've lost just 3 games. We've had many questions asked of us this season:


They can't keep conceding goals and coming from behind!

They haven't played anyone good yet?

Lets see where they are after their tough run in January/Feb

How will they do when teams are negative against them?

They can't keep winning 1-0

How will they react when they lose a game? (long unbeaten runs each time)

how will they cope without Vardy?


Plus many other comments I can't remember, each time we have responded and done what we had to do.


August 2008 I went to Stockport Away on the opening day of our league 1 season, we drew 0-0. The story since then has been incredible, 3 league titles and the years we didn't win the league we suffered unbelievable heartbreak in play offs. Now is not the time to moan about 'glory-hunters' but I do feel you have to go through some low moments to really appreciate the highs.


Yes we've had our moments of luck but a team like ours does not win league titles without that. 'Luck' plays only a small part in what we have acheived, Nigel Pearson and his team must take huge credit, they built large parts of this team with an excellent scouting network and they invested lots of money into the sports science and medical signs of things. The players have gave their absolute all for the shirt, and have played with incredible nerve, confidence and desire.


'Top' (the owner) takes huge credit too, he made mistakes at first but soon realised what you need to do, he's ambitious, backs his manager and has a built a relationship with the fans.


Claudio Ranieiri will go down in history, what a man. Complete opposite to Pearson, in the media anyway and he has managed this group of players incredibly well.


On a personal level 2016 has been unbelievable. My team are premier league champions and I'm also going to be a dad before the end of the year. No pressure in the Euros England.


What a team.

He must be worth a fair bit. Got a great cross on him and can work miracles. Although he does go missing for a long time.
