Be careful what you say to referees!

February 21st, 2010

We can just imagine, “ your honour sir, our player didn’t say that the referee had a, how do you say, E-D-Pus complex, but that he screws around with young single mothers, so please cancel his red card forthwith, your honour, sir!”. Not much chance of a let-off there then!

Some of the wee young lads left the field in tears, never to be seen again. Bring on the girls…..

Our new girlfriends Nokya Blokov and Ima Bitvilius are not very happy though, “no chance of the birth rate increasing in our part of Barcelona then!” they say! Not sure what they are talking about?
