the grauniad on the leeds game

sorry for all the footie stuff (although i'm not really) but here is a lovely snippet from rob smyth today that i just had to share:

"QPR equalised from nowhere in the 81st minute, when Martin Rowlands fired home an excellent penalty after Stephen Crainey had been punished for a soft foul on Gareth Ainsworth. "These days," fumed Blackwell, "you only have to fart in the box to get a penalty."

Any wind there was was taken out of QPR's sails within a minute of the equaliser, however, when Geoff Horsfield cushioned a volley into the corner from Steve Stone's defence-splitting flick but somehow Leeds threw it away again. Terrorised by Jones, a beast of a centre-forward, they were struggling to hang on when Ainsworth's cross was turned in at the near post by Baidoo."

feeling a bit homesick for an antiquated british sense of humour - think i'll go look for my copy of 'carry on up the khyber' ...
