Andy Gray and Richard Keys in iffy comments about female linesman shock! #getthesesmugbuffoonsoffthetv
Paulo Bandini, via Twitter, reports that Gazzetta Dello Sport (Italy) only referred to “the beautiful lineswoman”.
Also on Twitter, Matt Holland, former Ipswich captain, made a point of praising Chris Smalling’s display for Man Utd yesterday. Nice to see the lad doing well – a great game to get his feet wet (United stormed it 5-0).
Finally, and this one’s about Fulham, Chris Baird’s passing is becoming a legitimate ‘weapon’:
Everyone’s going crazy over Charlie Adam’s passing for Blackpool; Baird’s getting seriously good, too.
Danny Murphy had 90+ passes, incidentally. Teams have to stop him if they want to stop Fulham. Surprised Stoke weren’t better on this front.
