    Yet another paper that thinks we play at Valley Parade.

    Another honourable mention for Valley Parade.

    Don’t these journalists know it’s now called The University of Bradford Stadium?

    To be fair a curly shit accurately describes that squad once Andy Reid left

    It didn't take Varney long to flush out the culprit

    Let's hope that everybody let's him know the error of his ways.

    Heard a couple of players on the Undr The Cosh podcast mention this about Ben Thatcher. Well known for it.

    How's that a prank. That's disgusting.

    a prank would have been to put a fake rubber snake in his bag

    Yeah, in most places of work that's called  a sacking offence. It's a weird cultural environment within football that not only does this happen but it's seen as fairly standard. This wasn't that long ago it happened after all, but you'd hope this wouldn't happen today. Not sure I'd be very confident in that though tbh.

    Rubber snake, brown snake… what’s the difference?

    Wasn't there a similar story between Lawrie Madden and Paul Walsh?

    What great banter. If you don’t find it funny you’re obviously not a lad. Only proper geezers would appreciate that.

    Couldn’t possibly think why that squad tumbled down the divisions as quickly as it did…

    Footballers are weird. And they were even weirder back in the day.

    I hear stories like this on the Undr the Cosh podcast quite often. One player, and I forget which club it was - but not CAFC or MFC,  even put a shit in the physio's kettle in his hotel room on an away trip. The poor physio was blissfully unaware until he boiled the kettle.

    And so it appears there are simply no limits to banter in the football profession..

    "The welcome 'gift' appeared to have a positive impact as Varney made 42 appearances in his debut season at Charlton, notching eight goals."

    In what world is 8 goals all season from a striker deemed positive?

    A prank on a new signing when vinnie Jones and friends were at Wimbledon was a continuous brutal welcome. 

    These pranks aren't very funny but it's the culture of the sport...and it perhaps does get players/new signings talking quick and getting to know each other in an instant shit second.

    Legend had it that one Wimbledon signing never suffered the initiation - Mick Harford, as no one dared.

    Practical jokes and initiations for new players were commonplace; these ranged from players being stripped and forced to walk home naked to belongings being set on fire to players being tied to the roof of a car at the training ground and driven at high speeds along the A3 among a multitude of others, with long-serving midfielder Vinnie Jones saying "you either grew a backbone quickly or dissolved as a man"
