    I can believe people might be a bit shocked if they witness a horrific injury like Dave Buust or if someone dropped dead during a match.

    There’s a lot of Cov players I like, past and present, and I would expect the club to respond accordingly but these days everything seems over the top.

    Have to say the club and supporters handed the passing of both Hill and Regis with dignity. Appropriate respect without the histrionics.

    I have a real hard time with the levels of grief over this. Not just because it seems so over the top for a footballer that no-one had heard of a couple of weeks ago but also that no-one seems to give a shit that a father and husband has died too. Can't believe Cardiff and Nantes couldn't come up with the cash between them too to pay for the search either.

    I wonder how much his agent lumped in to help find him

    I did and yes, he was forced/coerced into the deal. Shame the agents couldn’t pay for a first class seat on a commercial plane for him.

    I still don't get why after he got off and was worried he got back on it to go back.

    With all the money in football he could have got an uber, or just going on a normal flight.

    When it is me this whole forum will be one big grief stricken mess. Everyone will need counselling

    I'll need a tissue, certainly. ;)

    Maybe a wet wipe if I feel flush

    That's the bit I don't get

    If he flew over and said how dodgy it was, why did he get back on it? Fuck that I'd rather walk.

    It will indeed. Party poppers and balloons are on order. We now just need a fun time DJ lined up.

    Especially in this day and age where you can turn up at Calais and be in Folkestone within an hour. It’s considerably less than a days drive even with regular stops.
