And finally…a linesman’s worst nightmare

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

One of the more niggling annoyances at a game is the guy (or gal) who sits behind us and bemoans every last offside decision given. Yeah, we’d like to think our star striker wasn’t really offside for the 38th time this half but how can you possibly tell when it’s that tight and you’re sitting behind the goal. At the wrong end. Cleverly these fans from, we think, Spain have found a solution to this problem – dozens of supporters all run up and down the touchline after the linesman (yes, we said linesman).
