'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Beattie Babbling: Blaming Bassong

With sour grapes still fermenting in the Potteries following the 1-1 draw at the weekend, James Beattie has laid the blame at the door of Seb Bassong and his flailing arm. Speaking to the local rag down there, Beattie said:

'I think he got booked, didn't he? So the ref has seen it. I thought he did it on purpose. Either way, it hopefully won't stop me from playing. I don't know if I'll have to wear something to protect it. I'll have a word with the physio and he'll probably have me wearing something stupid!'

Beattie joins exalted company in Ronaldo and Arshavin as players who have taken forearm smashes off our players (normally Stevie T).

"...he'll probably have me wearing something stupid!" Yeh, like a Stoke shirt.

Bamberini, a number of your players would probably where the stupid stoke shirt and play in the best league in the world rather than playing in the championship.

I don't think anyone would call Stoke City a "football" side. They're like a band of bulked-up rugby players who think physicality is what 'beautiful game' is all about. Sadly.
