Cheaters usually win

English football community says endlessly that its is the best league in the world. It isn’t. It is disfigured by a conning culture; the slightest contact is penalised by full-time professional officials whose livelihoods depend on the approval of their supervisors, and most of it is contrived or simulated. Refs seem afraid to apply basic common sense, and the sad thing is that the most experienced are the most guilty.

Tiny Wharton must be turning in his grave.

    Many wouldn’t have a clue who the not so Tiny Wharton was….he used to address the players as ‘Mister’..as in ‘Mister Greig, one more tackle like that and you will be having an early bath’

    Remember the not so Tiny ref well.
    He used to address the players as ‘Mister’
    As in, ‘Mister Greig, if you tackle like that again I will have no option but to remove you from the field”

      I met him. Lovely man. His best was, ‘Mr Hamilton, the time has come for you to rejoin your teeth.’ Said Hearts player left his full set of dentures in a tumbler in the dressing room.

      The way I saw it my lot threw away two points. We’ll see what happens at Anfield, but it will be decided in midfield rather than up front.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
