After last night’s palaver at the Liberty and the accusations of racism leveled at Oldham’s Lee Croft not so very long ago, pundit and former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin has told BBC Breakfast this morning that the PFA should now be thinking long and hard about dropping ballboys altogether…
Pat then went on to repeat those sentiments on a Chelsea TV phone-in and on BBC Radio Five Live, where he admitted that, faced with Hazard’s predicament, he would’ve “100% tried to kick the ball out from under the ballboy.”
Who hurt you Pat? Who hurt you?
Nevin’s a fantastic, insightful pundit and we usually hold his opinions in high regard here on Pies, but surely he’s being a little over sensitive here? Nixing ballboys seems a little knee-jerk if we do say so ourselves. They’re hardly a blight on the game now are they?
What do you reckon Pies fans? Does Nevin have a point?
