Time to Stop Defending Diving

Pot. Kettle. Black. That was the glib response I received from a Norwich supporter after registering my disdain for Cameron Jerome’s theatrical tumble and subsequent demands for the dismissal of Watford’s Gabriella Angella.

By far the greatest team, Miss World has ever seen…

It seems that Watford’s reach is growing. Not content with capturing the hearts of a million Mexicans with the signing of Miguel Layun, it looks like the Hornets have now cracked South Africa too!
