The footballing world has been rocked to it’s very foundations.
In a week where reputations are being blown to pieces quicker than you can say, ‘The Sun has rustled up four more tarts‘, another reverred household name has been inducted to Soccer’s Hall Of Shame.
Legend Sir Stanley Matthews was formally charged with ‘conduct to the prejudice of good order and Air Force discipline’. The shady striker was apprehended flogging 5lbs of black market coffee out of a suitcase in Brussels. This under the sinister cover of playing for an Armed Services International XI.
When confronted, the Bryl Creamed brigand spilt more than coffee beans.
’I am guilty, I sold the coffee.’
Thanks to the Records Dept. of the Ministry of Defence and the Freedom of Information Act, the lid has been lifted yet again on the morally corrupt underbelly of the world’s favourite sport.
More sixty year old revelations as we get ‘em.
