Our exclusive photo shows legendary hothead Steve McMahon standing next to the Blackpool team coach and conversing with a cop in the Robins pub car park after the 2-0 defeat at Ashton Gate. He was not a happy man after the two sending offs. But what are they saying? We want your suggestions about the conversation between the short-fused Seasiders boss and one of Avon and Somerset’s finest.
Please send your captions to email@example.com. Entries should reach us no later than midnight on Saturday August 31st. The best suggestions will be published in Issue Three, and the winner is in with a chance of scooping an exclusive Incider T-shirt signed by the City team. The Editor’s decision is final (just ask Edson and Tomarse how futile arguing with him is!)

head with this paper maybe the fans won’t realise that I have
dyed my eyebrows!"
“Anyone wanna buy a watch?”
The card reads: “Join the Soul Crew! Free champagne and coach
travel! All sins forgiven!”
The card says: '”Whoever cheers the most gets 14 in-bred
sheep for a year”.
The card reads: "What is on this paper is what both the team
and I are firing!!"
He is holding a scorecard marking his very own band of hooligans
for artistic merit and technique as they shower another poor, unsuspecting
visiting team with coins, bottles, bits of seat and anything else
close to hand.
Sam is saying "See? No-one throws coins or bottles of piss
here at Cardiff!!"
"I’ve just flogged this club for a tenner!" or
"I’ve lent ‘em millions - now they’re going
