'Barca' Linesman Replaced

'Barca' Linesman Replaced

The linesman who was pictured in a local paper wearing a Barcelona shirt has been replaced for the UEFA Champions League Final.

The linesman, I forget his name, wore a Barca shirt in a local rag and says he was supossed to wear a Gunners shirt too, but with so much riding on this game, UEFA have decided to avoid all controversy ahead of time and elected to bring in another official.

I guess the decision is for the best, but could have worked in our favour if the said linesman had indeed made a genuine mistake, he wouldn't want his integrity called into question and would have thought twice about awarding any 50:50 decisions in Barca's favour.

Anyway, all is well with the world, and this time tomorrow, we'll be halfway through our first ever Champions League final.

COME ON YOU GUNNERS.

I feel for the guy. Against Wigan we had a Tottenham fan on the line. It took his better half a week to get the skidmarks off his undies!

It all sounds pretty innocent if you ask me. I think its been blown out of proportion. Having said that, better he's replaced now than have questions of impartiality after the game.
