Thug wars: Michael Ball vs Michael Brown

In the blue corner, we have Michael Ball, who seemed hell-bent on inflicting some kind of Zorro Zed on Cristiano Ronaldo’s chest during the Manc derby on Saturday…

    Now first of all as a United fan I’d like to express my dissapointment that pies can’t be unbiased enough to cover the little minor detail of the premiership being settled ;-)
    Football should have a 3 strikes and you’re out mechanism – 2 month ban each time, and on 3rd permanent lifetime ban from football. This sport should have no space for either act. It’s time to get rid of the pikies like Thatcher, Ball, Brown and Barton. We don’t need them.

    Patience Sheps! I’ve only got one pair of blogging hands and it is a bank holiday after all! I’ll be doing a full season review this week…

    haha cheers Ollie, was very dissapointed not to have a distraction for a couple of minutes from software engineering revision then!

    Software engineering revision eh? Tell me more…
    Actually, don’t tell me more ;)

    It looked like the penalty Ball won was a blatant dive too. Michael Ball, welcome to the El Hadji Diouf What A Horrible Bastard Association.

    it’s the first time i’ve seen ball do something like this, then again he hasn’t played in england for years.
    brown is a major tosser though. i’d like to see fulham get relegated just to see the look on his little piggy face.
