Spanish and Russian Refs Strangle Kittens
England’s hopes of hosting the 2018 World Cup were thrown into turmoil yesterday when Lord Triesman resigned as chairman of the FA after claiming that Spain and Russia were planning to bribe referees during next month’s tournament.
It had passed me by that England was bidding to host the Girly Touchball Games - apparently "Becks" has handed over a 200 page book, and I gather he did all the colouring in himself with out any help. Lord Triesman had also passed me by but then I'm not a follower of ex-Communists, Labour hacks, Trade unionist or Cambridge Fellows (tautology alert).
But he may have performed the one useful service of his sorry life by pointing out that corruption and international sporting events go together like a horse and carriage.
And to reinforce it let me make clear that Russian referees are the Spaniards bitches, and we really don't want the circus here.
