The Categories

Churchill
REVERSE CHURCHILL

Reverse Churchill goes to Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes: 1-0 up at half-time against Hearts, slumping to a 3-1 defeat. Barry Robson may have taken the “We shall fight them on the beaches…” speech too literally, getting a second yellow card in the 55th minute, which then started the Hearts goal rush…

Miscellany

Keanu Marsh-Brown – fastest sending off of the weekend (13min). Maybe he should he sponsored by Head & Shoulders…

Tokelo Rantie¬† the Bournemouth striker’s first club at Youth level – Dangerous Darkies… errrrrrmmmmm……and in South Africa, too….

A note for Ross McCormack‘s one-man good seeing-to (should this be a category on its own??) – getting all four goals at Charlton (Oops!) in Leeds United’s 4-2 win.

Nick Ross was one of the scorers for Inverness CT against Hibs. I hope Wiggy did the “Sleep Well” joke…

OVERALL RESULT: AFTER A RECOUNT, ANOTHER WIN FOR THE POSH!
