NEIL ATKINSON chairs the third edition of ‘Ban This Filth’ as Steve Graves, Andy Heaton and Neil Docking square off for the title of ‘King Filth’.
Worst Football Writer? Docking goes in hard and early on his debut to the surprise of Heaton and Graves, can they respond against the new challenger and his m,of notes?
Nonsensical phrases used around football? We’ve got loads haven’t we? Only one winner though really, despite some bullying from ‘The Echo Twins’ and it’s Andy Heaton’s nomination isn’t it? Of course it is.
Worst chant? Some absolute belters aren’t there? Some copper bottomed, god-awful nominations from this week’s three candidates. Most of them from ‘The Championship’ and below, but which one will win out?

Henry (Lord Snooty of Toryland) Winter, Old Wet, Brothers a Don,
Bin his filth on so many levels.
Represents everything wrong with footy journalism with his crusade to convert the middle classes to Hodgesons one nation conservative money driven armageddon
Winter went to the Times so he’s rather binned himself behind a paywall. I listen to him but no longer read him.
When a commentator says ‘he almost hit that too well’ is one nonsensical footy phrase I’d like banned
As much as I DESPISE Winter and Barclay, there are just too many writers of a similar level of twatness who also called for Hodgson to replace CL winner Rafa (Hayward is arguably even worse than the other two).
So I give my vote to Ronay, if only for his piece after the Chelsea game that cost us the title in 13/14. An entire piece defending Mourinho’s tactics that day (you know, the ones that involved time-wasting from goal-kicks in the first minute) and arguing it wasn’t ‘anti-football’ for Chelsea to want the ball to be dead for as long as possible.
Ronay’s article here: http://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2014/apr/27/liverpool-chelsea-mourinho-simply-football

Had me in fucking stitches that did! Heaton’s a little competitive isn’t he haha! I’ve got to say i’d have had John Cross in before Winter. He’s an absolute fucking bellend and loves to constantly kiss the ass of Arsenal in his articles. We know you support them John, now fuck off!
Martin Samuel for me. Complete know it all.
