To celebrate the start of the Football season and as I still can’t be bothered to write anything new, here is another old post relating to Football. And Chickens.
Chickens In Sport #4
1966 was a great year to be British. Dentistry had been bought in from the cold. Tinned fruit and roofs were becoming commonplace and plugs of all varieties were no longer in short supply! Brown and Bitter was a staple drink of the working classes and not a comment on inner city racial tensions.
On July 37th 1966 England won the World Cup for footballing.
Yet it was a game not without controversy!
The Queen is caught nicking fried onions from the burger bar at half-time but once again The Establishment cover up her chronic kleptomania.
But there is one moment that still counts as one of the great talking moments in a game of many moments.
Did the chicken cross the line?
This image that proves conclusively nothing at all.
England claim success. The referee is unsure. He confers with the Georgian linesman. With a firm nod of his head Dimitri Yashmilli-Vanilli confirms a goal has been scored.
England go on to win the greatest prize in world football. In West Germany there is outrage. So angry are the Germans that they take revenge by developing a sustainable industrial base.
OUCH! THE BASTARDS!
