In which Carlos Vela, formerly of the Arsenal reserves and now on loan at Real Sociedad, is shunted over on the touchline by Sporting Gijon’s Alejandro Galvez during the former club’s 5-1 routing of the latter on Sunday evening – which, all-in-all, wouldn’t have been too much of an issue had the linesman not been ‘keeping up with the play’ quite so admirably…

Wipeout! Love that it’s the linesman that has to haul Vela back to his feet afterwards, despite the fact that it’s the official who now has to suffer the ignominy of having backwards Ostrich knees for the rest of his natural life.

    Ah, Carlos Vela. Remember the days when he was the ‘next big thing’? Turned out to be another Quincy Owusu-Abeyie.
