FLA: Together We Are Divided!

Crivvens! Jings! And Help Ma Boab! Ah, Soccer! A game owned by billionaires, played by millionaires, and paid for by you as you sit shivering on a plastic seat clutching a wee cup of Irn Bru (or, indeed, a cup of wee that looks like it). We prefer games that use a severed head rather than a ball but failing that, indoor sports like Buckaroo are exercise enough. We do however salute Eric Cantona for his touchline anti-racist militancy.

Hey, Cantona! Kick him tae fuck! 

But anyhooots … it seems like the Football Lads Alliance (FLA) is having a slight domestic over who should wear the biggest trousers to pocket all the money sent by gullible fans for tacky t-shirts and dodgy flags from forrin countries. FLA leader John Meighan seems to have decided that any money sent in for the FLA is his to spend, just like Nick Griffin (BNP) and Tommy Robinson (EDL) did before him, which has caused weepy tears for sensitive hooligans.

Meighan: ‘Where’s the money Johnny? ‘

In keeping with the usual rows and bitching that precipitates the evolution of yet another far right groupuscule, ‘The True FLA: Democratic Football Lads Alliance’ have now broken away from Meighan’s grubby empire. No doubt we’ll soon get the ‘Real FLA’ and ‘Continuity FLA’ all scuffling for the same few quid from deluded racists and fracturing into ever tinier, more irrelevant Facebook pages. The True FLA demanded more transparency and democracy from Meighan but he was well cagey and didn’t want to give up a single quid so the inevitable happened…

Once established, the True FLA were quick to indulge in the usual panicky cliches about not being ‘prepared to sit back’ and ‘watch our children be murdered or violated’ and vowed ‘to make Britain a safer place for our children.’ As far as children’s safety is concerned, a drunken, violent, football hooligan convict is the last person I’d ask to babysit.

Fatty Bawbag: FLA Baby-Sitting Division. 

The True FLA also say that ‘The recent upsurge in political correctness gone mad’ has denied ‘free thinking, decent people… to voice a genuine concern for their safety.’ What, apart from when 1,000s of you march about voicing a genuine concern for your safety, you mean? Next to all this gubbins is the typically enormous Donate Button.

All these splits and fallouts were much as we predicted several months ago, much to our amusement, and much more is to come before the half-time whistle. The True FLA: ‘Together We Are Stronger’ by splitting into yet another groupuscule. Here comes the funs!
