    Re: McBurnie

    He's always been considered a bit of a style guru down West.

    There is an obsession people like Trundle, Monk, Williams, mcBurnie

    All seem to have some hatred for Cardiff even though most never played much against us. Its a bit bizarre.

    Trundle is ridiculous , Gary Neville isnt you friend you were some league 1 footballer at best who thought he was a superstar because did a couple of tricks.

    McBurnie is just a chav the whole gesture thing is school kid stuff. Who does it offend?

    He just needs his ego massaged so goes where will get a load of back slapping from a bunch of thick kids who he would look down on if he was out with his normal footy mates.

    Re: McBurnie

    Why does McBurnie care about Swansea so much? He played fifty-eight games and forty-two of those games came in one season. Is this like when Tony Gerrard thought he could make friends with our hardcore fans only for those same fans to disagree with his performance against Liverpool and afterwards?

    Just reading the BBC article about it and it quotes McBurnie as a Swansea fan. Is this a lifelong thing or a recent development because he never had a football team to follow as a youngster? Christ, if I saw Mats Daehli at the next derby giving plenty of hand gestures towards the Jacks and saying he's there because he's a Cardiff fan, I'd have him sectioned.

    No.

    What does that matter? McBurnie is from Leeds. Ah, that's it. Of course.

    So if I was spotted making gestures at a north East derby you'd think that was ok?

    Why do you care? Why is this even still being talked about

    He was there with Joe Rodon and Brett Johns (a UFC fighter), doesn't take a genius to figure out they're his mates from his time down with Swansea and he's having a day out with them. Gestures were a bit sad but I had a man in his fifties in front of me, gesturing to Swansea fans to scrap him after the game. Shit happens, move on.

    Yep, so we've agreed he's been a bit of a mong. Sorted.

    No one is whining.

    I was making the point that a professional footballer should act like one. Not some cretin rubbernecking opposition fans.

    You may think it 'normal' and full of passion, but with your background..... oh never mind.

    Agree with this. A very good footballer, who seems to love the game.

    Ah, I see, that's what he was doing - sucking up to Swansea's hooligan element. So I presume all of the Cardiff fans (and there were thousands) making gestures at the Swansea fans were sucking up to Cardiff's hooligan element?

    Re: McBurnie

    Whole thing is a non story, so what if he’s in the with the Swansea fans and he makes a hand gesture, he’s only 23 and probably didn’t think it through in that moment.

    It wasn't just a 'gesture', it was gestures. He was shown on TV making them. The retarded thick chavvie was obviously getting some sort of ego massage, by surrounding himself with equally retarded individuals. He is a professional footballer and should be setting an example, not acting like the lowest of low mentality wise at a football match

    This is what the majority of our fan base are like I donít know why we are taking the moral high ground

    Yeah heís a complete berk but loads of people who follow football are. I donít think he needs to be singled out for this.

    My professional life is totally separate from the life I enjoy following Cardiff .
    I think itís great to see a football player going back to his club and showing a bit of passion .
    It may be embarrassing , as are the majority of the responses on here .
    You seemed to like my comment - you reposted it enough🤪

    I think you missed something though ... I have no idea what you do but Iím assuming your professional life does not involve professional football... His does so his actions are related to his professional life arenít they?

    Why isnít it a comparison?

    It's hardly normal.

    Admittedly for a few it is. I disagree with thousands. You might like to think the majority are like minded, but you're wrong. You come from that background. A soft middle class boy attempting to make friends .

    You remind me of that Kevin Bridges (?) Joke "Can I be your friend?

    Stop making excuses for him, he''s a dick.

    I suppose it's the price you pay for being somewhat well-known. The profile offers rewards, but also has drawbacks. It works both ways - people also made comments about the guy stood next to him but nobody's jumped to his defence, I guess because nobody really knows him.

    I think it's reasonable for a PL player to meet higher standards during a game than the fans.
