THE ‘Hard times for the joker at spurs’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE
So named because of the weekend birthdays of Hayley Williams (28-who?!), Jared Leto (46-huh?!), and Tottingham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (30-WHY WHY OH WHY…SPURS?!?).
The Dread Hand of Barney
Cursed for Christmas Part II – starring: Sammie Szmodics at Colchester United (SCORED!), Lewis Grabban at Sunderland (DIDN’T PLAY) and Matty “You’re not a kid anymore” Godden at Stevenage (DIDN’T SCORE).
Barney – called Bury v Rotherham United at 0-2 on 12 min – Finished: 0-3 – FAILED!
Howard – called Sheffield United v Sunderland at 3-0 on 63 min – Finished: 3-0 – FAILED!
Chris – called Blackburn Rovers v Rochdale at 2-0 on 45 min – Finished: 2-0 – FAILED!
Planned categories were to have been: And Stay Out, Local Boy Makes Good, Old School, Unpleasant Local Derby and Day Trip To Brighton.
Garry Monk was also sacked around this time by Leeds United. Bizarrely, no-one’s Zinger was “Monk – slapped!”
