If you saw the Roma-Liverpool match you will have heard more
nonsense from our favorite announcer Tommy (bulge in the old onion bag)
"Liverpool seldom do well when they play in Italy,
especially against Italian teams"
I had to rewind my tape to be sure I had heard it correctly
the first time.
I guess Jol was trying to get through his swansong without
cards. There sure were a lot of tough tackles from both teams
that could have been carded, much worse than the one he gave
the one yellow for. It worked out for him, but might not have
for a referee of lesser stature.
