At least the Rags have someone representing them now in the World Cup final.

Those bunch of idiots get everywhere. Friggin' drop-outs.
Tudor
Will he be wearing a red shirt for the final then?
fifthcolumnblue
I always thought he was more Arsenal-centric, but that's just a biased fan's view.
DubaiSpur
I call him "the Equaliser". Especially when he's in charge of the Delias matches. Green and gold until they fold

Dubai - think it's probably Sky-4 bias more than to any one particular team.
