I'm used to hearing nonsense on tv from ex-players turned supposed expert analysts, but I've always liked and admired Adrian Childs - until he had me climbing the walls in anger with his criticism of the ref during the Blackburn-West Brom match.
Childs criticised referee Mike Jones for "bizarre" decisions. These "bizarre" decisions included blatant shirt pulling by defender Ryan Donk in the penalty area. "If you start giving those you'll be giving a lot of penalties," were Child's wide words. Adrian, it's an offence to pull opponent's shirts and it results in a direct free kick or penalty, when done so blatantly.
Then, Jones had the temerity to give Benny McCarthy a yellow card - his second - for deliberately handling the ball with a so-called professional foul. Again, a fair yellow card.
For God's sake Childs, don't just join in the mass hysteria. Leave it to the likes of wonder-brain Paul Ince, who came up with this little gem:
"Give red cards for dangerous and malicious tackles where the studs are up, fair enough. It is not a game for women."
What more can I say?
