Here’s the best bit of “England vs Germany: Legends” that was on Channel 5 on Wednesday. I was down the pub at the time and it had the whole pub pi**ing themselves with laughter. The idea of the show was to take a group of classic players from England (Gazza, John Barnes etc) and pitch them against a classic German team. Put a few TV cameras around, sell some tickets, job done.
There were a few problems though. The German team were taking it a little too seriously, plus some bright spark decided to start chucking on random celebrities like Damon Hill and MP Boris Johnson. For some reason Boris decided to try a rugby tackle on a German player and ran head-long towards the poor blokes groin area Oooofff….
After this Boris stated, “I was trying to go for the ball with my head, I understand this is a legitimate move in football”… yup, that’s a typical MP..
