English Footballers Support Limit On Foreigners

by | 3rd, January 2009

IN Barnsley all eyes are on the Sheffield and Hallamshire Senior Cup match between Royston Villa and Sheffield’s Mosborough.

We are 80 minutes into the game and a player has been red carded.

Says a Mosborough FC spokesman:

“One of their lads got sent off and came back and had weapons and that’s why it got abandoned. We don’t want to comment because there is an inquiry and the referee’s report has got to be submitted.”

The weapons are, reportedly, a golf club a “long sword”. Neither sporting goods have been usual football paraphernalia since the mid-1970s, although both items are quintessentially English.

The report is not yet in but Anorak would wager this was a misunderstood protest against the influx of foreigners into the national game. It was only when an Italian player brandished a Cannone da 47/32 M35 that his country’s three foreigner rule came in.

Adds the spokesperson:

“We don’t want to make it sound worse than it was and want to see what the authorities have to say.”

Look out for longbows at Villa Park and Arsenal raid the Gunnery for the British Army India Pattern Brown Bess Flintlock Musket for their match with Roma…
