What's Wrong With Footballers?
When Colin Bell died recently, they showed some of his goals in black and white footage. When he (or anyone else from that era, for that matter) scored a goal, he shook hands with one or two of his teammates and went back to the centre of the pitch. There was no hugging, no silly dancing, no knee slides. And yet I've heard managers say that it is almost impossible for today's pampered prima donnas to resist hugging and kissing each other when one of them scores a goal. If one of those knee slides ended with a gashed knee, perhaps they'd stop them. And if the huggers all got yellow cards, perhaps they'd stop too.
