Well that ball boy business appears to be dominating the chitter chatter. My initial thought was that I had watched a Chelsea player kick a small boy in the head live on TV. But it appeared I was mistaken. What I actually saw was David Cameron’s big society in full effect.
Apparently this charmless 17 year old oik had Tweeted before the game to his 80,000 followers that he was officially in the time wasting business. Oh yes, ball boy Charlie Morgan was in fact …the son of the Swansea chairman, Martin Morgan.
Now I’m not condoning kicking kids, well I am in a way. But a 17 year old ball boy? And aren’t ball boys supposed to just chuck the ball back into play once they’ve waved to their mum? No, if they get out of hand we need to kick them we must feel obliged to. Spare the rod, spoil the child.
I for one don’t want Wimbledon disrupted by some ADHD ridden teenager who thinks it’s alright to start hitting tennis balls into the crowd with a rolled up copy of Big Bouncy Boobs Monthly.
Nico Kranjcar is linked with a return to the Premier League. To QPR. Or at least he was after the functional alcoholic who concocted this sham managed to eventually submit his copy. And in other news UKIP are appointing Sepp Blatter as their cultural attache.
