Well huzzah for JJ, the most unlikely of heroes. Unfortunately, the powers that be have taken a rather dim view of these comments, asking Jenas for “an explanation”, but I’m proud of the guy. It reminds me of the nerdy, goody-goody kid at school suddenly snapping and going beserk at his headmistress while awestruck classmates watch on, brimming with a new-found admiration for the blighter.
Admittedly it’s hardly on a par with Lee Bowyer starting a fight in an empty room, or Roy Keane yelling “Take that, yer c*nt” before snapping the legs of a toddler who’d sneezed in his direction. Nevertheless I warmly applaud Jenas and give him my full support on this one, as he queues up for a detention slip alongside Bowyer, Keane, Bellamy and the rest of the school trouble-makers. Not that I condone criticism of the ref – no matter how ignorant, biased, blind, dim-witted, retarded and inbred a ref has to be to drop a clanger like Saturday’s penalty award, I refuse to criticise him. However, just the fact that Jenas was sufficiently flustered by the affair to talk his way into trouble really warms my heart. It shows he cares.
My schoolboy gullibility long ago faded away, and has now been replaced by the overly bitter and twisted cynicism of a bile-filled old man. As a result I know longer believe in the existence of Father Christmas, the A-Team or footballer loyalty. No matter how many times they kiss the badge, and no matter how long their contract, it just seems beyond the boundaries of credulity to expect footballers genuinely to care about their team. They’re on a limited career-span, so they’ll make their money with whomever coughs up. It’s a different world from fans. Rather than bemoan lack of player loyalty I just accept it, even when they stick two fingers up at the club then come crawling back six months later.
Hence, I’d figured that after the final whistle on Saturday they all just trotted off to the players’ lounge to fight over Danielle Lloyd and sort out the Faces guest list. The notion that the penalty decision still rankled with one of them is a flabbergasting but enormously welcome development.

Steady on what about dave makay roberts perryman we havent allways had jenas type players .About jenas yes it would be my shout aswell only for 5 things that went wrong all in the back of our net we are all getting compfort in the bad penalty but what came after whas shambollick to put it mildley.And jenas played is part we should be angry at corluka king woodgate gomes for letting 4 goals in 14 mins and 5 in 22 mins a record in my spurs memory bank and harry for not making subs at half time.Big tom would have sprayed that ball allover old trafford keeping utd from going gun ho in attack because lennon would have been away .thats where our anger should be and nothing less than a great finish will erase that dark day when all liverpool fans in my area and chelsea where adopted spurs fans .Even my brother inlaw until the second half unfolded then he cursed the defending along with all the other liverpool fans and chelsea. Some advice when clay whas nocked sensless by henry cooper the trainor split is glove to give him more time to recover ,why dident a spurs player go down injured to slow utds relentless march forward ?
its not politically correct to debate poor refereeing in the FA
webb is the latest cup final golden boy………..pathetic isnt it!
jenas is right and the FA can look stupid in not maintaining high standards of
referees and linesman…….
the real question is how to avoid a repeat of title changing blunders likes webb s penalty was!
video ref debate etc
Jenas blames the ref for his and the rest of the girls lack of stomach and you think that’s more than OK.
Your blog is usually good, but you’ve lost the plot on this one.
Jenas in a nutshell.. he cares, he runs all day, he speaks out of passion..
But i don’t think he influences enough games. He’s been good for us over the years but i suspect that it would be good for him, and for us, if he went elsewhere this summer. He looks like he needs a new challenge and I think we need a new centre midfielder..
“Not that I condone criticism of the ref – no matter how ignorant, biased, blind, dim-witted, retarded and inbred a ref has to be to drop a clanger like Saturday’s penalty award, I refuse to criticise him.”
Exactly the sort of attitude that leads referees to make bad decisions safe in the knowledge they will get away with them

Well said, he just aint up to it.
I see there are some cheap tickets to Mexico, I’ll pay for a one way ticket for him?.
I believe in their own right, your writing is very good. You can consider to have a look at Ganadian Goose. http://www.canadiangooseshop.com
