    Moving the goalposts!

    The Estonians have lodged a complaint with Uefa
    over the size of the goalposts! This is according
    to Read it , its laughable!
    Sounds like a major case of sour grapes.
    Well done on a great result last night.

    Talking The complaints!

    Apparently the list of compliants went along the following lines:

    - Bus transporting them to the ground stopped at red lights i.e. no escort thru traffic (I didn't make that up )
    - They wouldn't walk down the lane to the back of the stand, had to drive the bus into the carpark (opposite the stand) so i presume they walked across the pitch.
    - Wanted the home dressing room as it was 'bigger'

    - Complained old goalposts were dangerous, bohs replaced with aluminium ones.
    - Goals were too low! Most likely caused by new turf in the goalmouth which I believe Bohs dugup or replaced.

    I'd be amazed if UEFA didn't agree with whatever their observer said & thats what hes there for. As that article reported he wasn't very impressed with the Estonians.

    BTW Bohs should act professionally & not resort to tit for tactics next week in Talinn.

    Bring back Rocketman!

    Too late it seems. Nice ploy by Bohs playing GAA instead of soccer when the Estonian spies came round. Nice work lads, and hope ye beat the whining gits!
