Football Applauds Nelson Mandela, Ashes and Tim Krul

Over the weekend, football players and fans in Britain had a minute’s applause for South Africa’s Nelson Mandela, as they did for Fabrice Muamba two seasons ago. I hope Peter Herbert was watching, although he’s not interested in football, so probably wasn’t.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sports round-up.

We thought about having a photo of Monty Panesar doing the boomerang in the second Ashes test, but after the Aussies were called racist for doing a Monty Panesar Sikh Tellytubbies skit we decided against.

However, if we then only include ‘white’ people, we could be accused of being racist in that way.

So, we have decided not to cover the second Ashes test, which the Australians won in Adelaide, home of AusRuIcket, to take a 2-0 lead.

And finally, great news for the Greenygrey. Tim Krul, the greenygreyest goalie in British football has been voted the English Premier League player of the month for November.

This follows extensive coverage in the Greenygrey, after the new greenygrey Newcastle goalie shirt seems to have raised Krul to heady heights of excellence this season.

Premier League Meeting of Greenygrey Goalie Kits

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy-satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. As reported in the sports section of this very blog early football season, Reading FC are playing with a greenygrey goalie kit in the English Premier League this season.

Newcastle Goalie Kit

Since then, through my intrepid research, we have noticed that Newcastle are also playing with a greenygrey goalie kit. This darker greenygrey version  is Newcastle’s away goalie kit.

 Newcastle v Reading

The two greenygrey goalie kits could have met on Saturday, when Newcastle played Reading, but Newcastle played in their home kit, with the goalie kit grey and blue.

Reading wore their greenygrey goalie kit and won a surprise 2-1 victory.

Newcastle and Reading Seasons

Although we could claim the greenygrey goalie kit played a decisive role in Reading’s victory, we don’t think it played any part really.

We also don’t think the greenygrey goalie kits have played a part in Newcastle and Reading being in the lower half of the league.

Reading were expected to struggle this season, while Newcastle have had multiple outfield injuries. The goalies have been on form for both teams, and done the greenygrey goalie kits proud.

Meeting of Greenygrey Goalies

Following a sudden burst of super-intrepidness, the fact that it’s the second half of the Premier League now, and Newcastle’s greenygrey goalie kit is the away one, set me off in search for images from the Reading V Newcastle game earlier in the season.

And lo and behold, there was a meeting of the greenygrey goalies in the Premier League that day, September 29th, 2012:

Sorry to bring the news so late, but better late than never! I was still recovering from all the summer of sport coverage at the time!!

The game ended 2-2, so not a classic day for the greenygrey goalies, but quite fitting and nice that it ended all square.
