Yellow Card Outrage!
Sat mulling over a few things amidst the quietness a midweek international break brings, I`m hoping the two pitch invasion incidents are isolated occurrences.
I`d hate football to return to the days of fences being erected to keep the spectators off of the playing surface, especially those of the electrified variety a certain Ken Bates was fond of!
However, if the idiots can`t be stopped then I suppose you have to stop the idiots.
The latest incident of this type came at the Ricoh Arena, whereby a bare-chested youth decided he`d make an ass of himself and launch a one-man pitch invasion, but it had a strange conclusion.
Obviously annoyed at the intervention one of the Coventry players, Cyrus Christie tried to halt the invader in his tracks by tripping him up only to turn around and see the referee brandishing a yellow card at him!
