    You’re really trying too hard. You’ve reeled one in (not surprising who) I doubt you’ll hook any more.

    I haven't actually given this much thought before, but come to think of it, I don't actually own anything red. not even socks

    Having said it so often myself, my youngest daughter now repeats the mantra "better dead than red" whenever the colour is mentioned.
    She also insisted to her form teacher that she be moved when she discovered that he had sat her next to a boy who had been poisoned by his goon father into supporting them.
    I had a red T shirt once that I was given at a skydiving boogie, I use it to wash my motorbike. And finally, I had a red car in Bermuda, I had it resprayed white.

    To a game no.

    In day to day life, I think there are more important things in life than to we aware of what colour clothes you’re wearing

    There are 285 different shades of red

    What if you’re colour blind & think a football pitch is red ?

    I feel your pain Mrs P, I'm not comfortable with the Spanish one. The addition of yellow adds a level of Scouseness to the whole sorry business.

    The old flag of the 2nd Republic, before Franco, is slightly better but it still sucks...

    Meh, I had a red ‘66 England replica for a while and My wardrobe has every colour in it, including red. But that’s because I’m fabulous.

    Colours matter...it’s tribal.
    Look at gang culture for example..

    Not saying it’s exactly the same, but who the fuck wears red to WHL when we play Woolwich?

    Difference between a logo that isn’t ours or two 5mm lions on the badge, and wearing a bright red Canada Goose on The Shelf

    I saw a bloke at whl in a red and white bobble hat, one of those long skinny affairs. The cock looked like one of the seven dwarves and as he walked along the bottom of the shelf there was a massive line of hands from the upper bit grabbing at him til they eventually ripped it off his ridiculous head. My son used to get given packs of underpants by his nan and i used to throw the red ones away, same with T shirts.

    Even if we were playing Wolves I wouldn't wear an orange top to the match.
    Had a bit of heated discussion at work a few months back when they tried ordering a red bin for the break out area. Kicked up a fuss and we now have a black bin, no red in there whatsoever.

    I guess it's just been ingrained into me since I was a kid that red is bad...cheers Dad!

    Got quite a few items of clothing that are burgundy, as I really like the colour, and I don't associate it with the goons (Yeah, I know they had that one kit, but that's not their proper colour)

    This is one of the most pathetic things I've read. So someone had a bit of red on their hat and you needed to be separated? Truly embarrassing behaviour. It's a colour mate.

    I bought a Ducati once (M600) could have ridden the Red one away that day...waited an extra 2 weeks for the Yellow one to come in.

    I also own nothing Red except for a Red tie which I wore to my mums funeral 'cos she was a Gooner.

    I'm also a Star Wars nerd and general good guy.

    Even had someone from this very forum change Ryu's headband in my pic from Red to Blue.

    But it's Chelsea blue?

    * I guess you could get away with saying it's WHL seat blue

    Yeah, if that's your reaction to something like that, you have anger issues.

    It's stupid to think wearing red when representing Spurs is ok, but fucking hell
