      There are people in Syria and Yemen who may understand how difficult this all is for John what with the drop in salary and the media being somewhat ‘mean’ to him, but we will never know…. :|

      Probably because they bounce, you can through them and they are fairly cheap and easy to source.

      It’s a good idea, as these things go. You can’t be done for possession of an offensive weapon, they’re easily smuggled in, they’re easy to throw good distances, they’re “safe” missiles – you won’t injure someone if you hit them in the face, they’re relatively inexpensive and even one renders the pitch unplayable until they’ve all been gathered up.

    Tennis balls? What’s the significance? Surely throwing one-eared spacehoppers would be a better message.

    What’s with Emma English dressed as Napoleon? She’s no Brigitte Marie-Claude Trogneux-Macron.

    I thought I had heard it was something to do with the fact he has a tennis court at his home.
