Question: how many Portuguese speakers does Sky Sports have among its UK subscribers?

Supplementary: how extensive is the FA’s knowledge of what is and is not offensive in Portuguese?

The charges laid against Jose are based on lip-reading of something he said as he walked off the pitch after the last United home game. That begs another couple of questions. How many Portuguese speaking lip readers were consulted? If only one was used, what was their level of expertise? Finally, who really gives a porra?

I don’t like Jose. I think he’s arrogant and well past his sell-by. But I like vindictive persecution even less and that’s what I see happening here.
