Norwich City midfielder Alexander Tettey appears to have been fortunate to not get a red card in City’s 4-1 loss at Aston Villa yesterday, as this picture shows.

Villa defender Nathan Baker decided to post a picture of some sore-looking studmarks across his chest, to highlight how high Tettey’s boot had been when it made contact.

The clumsy challenge, in the 30th minute of the match, saw Tettey given a yellow card by referee Anthony Taylor.

It sparked a bout of pushing and shoving between the Norwich and Villa players, with many of the home fans calling for the Norway international to be sent off.

It made little difference though as Villa went on to score another two goals before half-time to complete their comeback from going 1-0 down in the third minute, thanks to a Wes Hoolahan goal, and seal their 4-1 success.

The yellow card was 27-year-old Tettey’s third in six matches, since returning to the Canaries’ starting line-up following three months out with an ankle injury.

  • Townman - the 'pain' of relegation will soon be eased by walking our derby games once more. I miss that...9 goals, 6 easy points and Tpwn fans hanging on to winning some rubbish mug back in 1743. Actually, I'd love to go down thinking about it. Easy!

  • Didn't say you were an ogre, Gek. Just assumed you liked your beer served at room temperature. You're not far off with the Wincarnis recipe. It definitely had sugar and yeast extract in it and the old biddies of Narfuk swore by it. Can't say much more about it's secret recipe, otherwise I'd have to shoot you. In fact, only one bloke in the whole factory knew the precise recipe and no one else was allowed in the vat room when he was concocting his magic potion. I think his name was Eric, then again maybe not. He died shortly after I left (ie 38 years ago) and I think Eric took the recipe to his grave, as I haven't seen it on the shelves since. So now you have then swear to your Fagen and Wincarnis questions (and in the sprit of deobscurantification), perhaps you can explain ITBC. Koszonom, Wijs.

  • Fagen, as in Donald Fagen. Steely frontman and keyboardist. Not the non gentile villain of Oliver Twist fame or Fionan (Paddy) Fagan who played for Man City in the 1955 Cup Final and later for Derby. No, the son of non gentiles from NYC. His father was a Mafia lawyer handling their (dodgy) financial dealings.

  • Yes, its a physical game, but to compare the physicallity of rugby to that of football doesnt make sense. He's a young lad with many Villa fan followers on Twitter, it was in context and not taken for the tabloids. There arent many football fans who could say that that challenge wasnt a sending off. Not sure why he's being classed as pathetic? Rooney did the same thing to show his injury off from in training, they're just youngsters doing what young people do.

  • Fagen, please don't show this to Brewer cos he'll go off on one of his smarta*se rants! but I think you'll find it means "Two cold beers, please". I can see why you didn't want to admit to Brewer that you like drinking beer at the wrong temperature. That sort of thing never goes down well with a prospective employer. Delete it from your cv and my lips will remain sealed. Interesting you mention Bulls Blood..around the time that MB was knocking out home brew from his bedroom, I used to bottle the stuff (and drink it) at Reckitts in the factory where Toys R Us now stands. It would arrive in vehicles which looked like slurry tankers, we would then do unmentionable things to it and it would leave the factory in bottles with black and red labels. That and Wincarnis probably made you what you are now.....a fan of cold beer. Prost !

  • I hadn`t realised I`d become such an ogre, BW & Steely. I will heed your warnings and chill out! I remember that Wincarnis place, part of Reckitt & Colman. There used to be a big advertising board outside proclaiming its virtues. I hadn`t realised Bulls Blood was bottled there. My dear old mother doted on Wincarnis "thass good fer yer blood" she would insist (people `insisted` long before it became fashionable for failing footy managers). Allegedly, it contained extracts of meat, hence the `Carnis` bit. I dread to think what the source was. Road kill, maybe? Or Oxo cubes. I didn`t discover BB until the late 70s either - because Greene King included it in their then huge range of wines (Peatling & Cawdron). Egri Bikava(?). Something like that. I also tried the Hungarian dessert wine, Tokaj. It was rated in sweetness on a scale of how many `puttnos` of sweet grapes were added after fermentation. I wonder if that word is related in any way to `punnet`? Anyway, in light of the Ferencvaros connection, I feel the time is right to become a student of Ugric. Blaffen, was Wincarnis just Egri Bikaver that failed QC + Roadkill\Oxo & sugar? My old mum also liked a sweet red Australian concoction called `Imperial Bounty`:- `enriched with the nourishing polypeptides of marsupials`. Here`s looking forward to some Magyar beer in Carra Rud`s bars....

  • I concur with Barking Wise. Also, I am pleased to see Dubai taking a more macho and non-partisan stance on this matter. I always agree with Swiss & B Inners. Even that faked up picture, with a n!pple pasted in over a shot of Bórat`s bottom, hasn`t distracted me from Olly G at Cardiff. Odder still, that photo does invoke an image of what Townchild might look like - with added adult features like hair, and sans a diaper. Townbaby`s team now have to overcome a rejuvenated Wigan to scrape the opportunity to lose in the play-offs. Plus about another 6 better teams. I quite like Mick McCarthy. He`ll move on to better things. Lowestoft, say.

  • Thanks for the tips Barking. I feel that we are treading eggshells with our prospective employer at the moment. He is snappier than my wife of a Saturday afternoon in M&S. Yes I have had Bulls Blood with not a positive outcome. It was in one of those wine bars which opened maybe '77 or '78. I did not appreciate the alcoholic content of wine as opposed to beer and had a mishap whilst at the bus stop a little later.

Anyway, for me it was `60s music, brewing ale before it became de rigeuer to call it `real` - and I preferred Motorcycle road racing to Speedway. Soccer was football in those days. Send your CV - but no bulls**t, please. ;-)

  • You keep saying you give up, Gek.......but you don't really. Ten for perseverance; only one for the courage of your convictions. One day, come the glorious revolution, when Ruin Tower is sacked by an angry mob (shortly after CH suffers a similar fate), they will discover your pithy jottings on the floor of Archie's office (and a few in Divot's inspiration folder). Then someone will write a book, or even make a film, and you'll have royalties coming out of every orifice. Bit like the stuff they found in the offices of the Stazi in East Berlin after the wall came down. Meanwhile, what can I say except (1) stop using words which Archie doesn't understand, (2) stop using Ugric and other strange tongues, and (3) console yourself with the fact that you won't get to readhear this post until the bookfilm comes out. OTBC. PS. You still haven't told me what ITBC stands for......unless of course I guessed right with Ipswich Town Borough Council. Semper, Blaff.

  • Senior moments are getting more frequent, I should have remembered Fagen. Steely used to set me homework on related subjects, like William Burroughs` Naked Lunch and The Engineers` Song. As for `ITBC`, I can`t remember doing that one, so it was either a `typo` or... something I`ve now forgotten. It could be `It`s Total BoIIox, Chaps`, or `Is Training Banned Completely`. Or something like that? Loyalty Oath Time: ITBC!!! IHIT!!!! Viel liefde. Je vriend, Gok Breuwer, Fashionista Extraordinaire. Time to pick a pockit or two, Fagen. ;-)
