Snapshot: Our Nation’s Moral Guardian, The Sun, Fears For The Future Of Football

By Alan Duffy

It’s a rather interesting time for The Sun to be pointing the finger at others in football, isn’t it? However, as a bastion of morality, the newspaper gives us a couple of photos from the recent Sheffield derby which are apparently supposed to have us shaking our heads in disbelief at the state of the nation and the beautiful game.

Still, they have coined a new phrase – “finger yob”, which is quite superb. Maybe a new low-budget children’s TV animation series features a hooligan mouse and a weird bearded bloke will develop from this idea? (that’s for older readers only, by the way).

  2. DJ says:

    Why are The Sun even printing this non story? ‘Fans of one team put middle finger up to opposition fans’ Quick, hold the front feckin’ page.

  3. Al says:

    someone on Photoshop has had to carefully cut out the fat guys ‘V’s’ – would have taken some time to do

  4. Mark says:

    @DJ you must not read The Sun – lucky you – this is exactly the kind of thing that could make front page, ask David DeGea.

  5. Fat Nakago says:

    The caption for this was meant to read:


    Somebody at the paper must have missed that meeting.

    Too. Ha ha….get it??

  6. Montesquieu says:

    Who cares, I think the moment people realise to stop taking that toilet rag seriously they’ll live happier lives.

  7. Lady B says:

    Let me not venture my opinions about the Scum… one rag I’d be happy to see go under

    Self righteous up there own asses tabloids!! And so not to be taken seriously! Anyways the woman was simply stating that her side was 1-0 up at the time, and the bloke was letting opposing fans that the late equaliser was the 2nd goal!!

  9. youreds says:

    they got a picture of this but not the 60 wednesday fans chucking things at police on my st in the city centre? jokes

    Oh my God, what is happening to football these days.

    Forget about the state of the whole fucking world, this is the real issue in England.

    2 people old enough to be parents and probably seen more in their lives than most desk journo’s, stick their fingers up at a derby?

    The death of journalism. If this makes the papers then the world is not as fucked as I thought
