Malcolm Dawson writes……I was in Sixer’s seat today as he enjoyed corporate hospitality courtesy of his old mucker Peter Horan and daughter. His view of the game would have been no more satisfactory than mine was but at least he had roast beef before kick off and prawn sandwiches at half time. Can’t think it made the result any easier to stomach though. Apologies for the delay, we do try and get his instantaneous reaction but today M Salut was otherwise engaged and I am just home having stopped off at my brother’s on the way back. Well it is Christmas!
Anyway – here was Pete’s post match reaction as texted to me when the full time whistle went.

I despise hypocrisy and in a sport full of them I’m finding it hard to think of one bigger than Bruce. Two weeks ago he was railing (quite rightly) against the divers of Chelsea demanding those trying to con the ref into giving a free kick or penalty should be punished. Yesterday he said that “Marriner got it right.” So patting your chest as his son did and falling over clutching your face when the ball has struck an arm to con the ref into not giving a penalty, is acceptable in his opinion. Of course had it been his team denied the penalties, we all know what he would be saying. He’s worse than Warnock.
Who is no longer with us
Ours and SubMarriners incompetence save Doubtfires job
Four on the trot for Mrs Doubtfire.
