The terrific trio of Hayley McQueen, Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper are back together to see off the end of the season on The Offside Rule (We Get It!) episode 20. We all had a chuckle when Barnsley accidentally submitted a bid for St Mirran’s Stevie Mallan to a St Mirran fan site. But it’s not the only ‘oops’ communication moment we’ve had in football. Which player’s transfer was scuppered by a failed internet connection? And who has forever been immortalised by the words “can you tweet something like”…? It’s that time where we start reflecting on a whirlwind season, so we recount some of the best and worst moments, including the shock sacking of the season, the double-edged sword of North East football and one of the best moments of Pep Guardiola’s life…apparently. Finally, we were browsing Mumsnet recently (bear with us…) and found that some Mumsnet posters don’t understand why relegation reduces fans to a sobbing mess. We think it’s perfectly normal, but not everyone reacts in the same way. We look at some of the best relegation reactions – including the study that proves how traumatic your team’s relegation really is!
