Didn't Shearer do a documentary on this not too long ago? Guess he has reason to be concerned!

Doesn’t all this come from American throwball?
Wasn’t there a film about it. ?

Edit:

It was Horrice Fairhurst and it was a clashed of heads with a Barnsley player.... he died about 10 days later.
Circa 1914 ish.

Football is becoming shit.
No longer a working class sport
Stadiums with all the atmosphere of a B&Q
Players coached to death and zone marking
No loyalty
No contracts
No Holland cheese n onion pies
