Burnley - a disgrace to football
Saturday, November 11, 2006
Cardiff City are clear again at the top of the Championship tonight after overcoming a Burnley team who were more interested in kicking shins than footballs.
Burnley's thugishness was epitomised in the behaviour of their brutish defender, Frank Sinclair, who not only committed horrendous fouls, but didn't have the sportsmanship to acknowledge them. Instead, he barked at the referee and whined at the linesman - all a futile attempt to distract from the fact that he's not a very good footballer anymore.
Burnley play football like lumberjacks: they're big and they chop down what's in front of them. The thing about lumberjacks is that they are lousy footballers, and so are Burnley. Quite how they were third place in the Championship going into this game is beyond me.
But despite the negativity of the opposition, Cardiff persevered...and prevailed. Ricardo Scimeca curled in a wonderful strike mid-way through the first half to secure a deserved victory.
Burnely deserved nothing and got nothing, except another axe to grind.

Fully agree with the other comments. It may seem petty to call you biased because of the fact you're welsh, but you quite clearly are.

What a load of utter bollocks!
You've got to laugh at that report. Makes it sound like the sheep shaggers are world beaters. The only thuggishness came from a Cardiff player (Chambers 2 footed lunge on Jones).
Truth is, we battered you in the 2nd half, even though you had an extra 3 players on your side (referee and his 2 cronie linesmen).
What an absolute scream that report is.

Nothing like a bit of unadulterated biase to start the day.
If this guy thinks Burnley are a big team (only 4 over 6 foot) then perhaps it's cos his other half tells him small things are huge ;)
As for the rest....best bit of humour I've seen in a while but then, I guess when you watch the Ninian 'lumberjacks' all the time that ends up all you can see from a game.

There's a lot of donkey-work involved in finding out all there is to about elite sports. We've done it all, and all you need to do now, is just go through this site.
