Title: Welsh ballboys (and Bradford ones)
Post by: Mr Stevens on Sunday, January 8, 2023, 14:23:03
Cardiff vs Leeds. Ball goes out for a Leeds corner and ends up about five yards from the ballboy who stays rooted to his stool. Game management or being a wanker? I think I'd go for the wanker option. Just like the Swansea one against Chelsea and that prick against us at Bradford earlier in the season.

we've done that. it pissed off Steve Evans.. My son knew the closest ball boy, they were instructed to do whatever the players said - in this case "leave it if it goes out"at that point of the have.

Then there was Vale, whose ballboys placed the ball on the ground next to our player.

I'm not sure which side of the gamesmanship line it sits, but it's not unique

I think it is morally questionable too.

1. Donít teach little kids to cheat.
2. Donít cheat

I'd almost say that anything that pisses off Steve Evans is a good thing but I still don't like it, whoever does it.

Speaking of Steve Evans, they have just 2-1 up against Villa

He's still a prick. For those in doubt, look at the history of Boston United.

Who can forget the scummer ballboy cheat having to be wrestled by our Matt Ritchie.

[Edit:  apologies to those who had successfully forced themselves to "forget" that game]
