Fat Sam is Anorexic
Kevin Blackwell, the manager of Sheffield United, seems to have warned his players that if any of them are involved in court action against West Ham then they will be dropped from his team,
"If somebody wants to get embroiled in a court case then they will lose their form. If they lose their form then they will lose their place."
The Blackburn Rovers official website today has a long article hilariously arguing that Blackburn didn't play long ball football against West Ham. Their main argument seems to be that,
"Sam Allardyce's side forced their way into the opposition penalty box a staggering 79 times - compared to West Ham's 15."
If they mean by 'forced' that they 'hoofed the ball from their own half or lobbed long throws into the area' then they are correct. Tomorrow the Blackburn website will be arguing that Fat Sam is anorexic.
