This one may bear a little explanation for those of you who call football `soccer.' When the ball goes out of play on either side of the pitch, it's called a `throw-in.' Normally this is accomplished by the use of a two-handed overarm throw, but some flashy bastards like to do a somersault first, thereby getting more distance on the throw and making themselves look cool. The common strategy for the opposing team is to station a player as close as possible to the thrower to stymie the throw. This is not always a very good idea:

I've never seen that on MOTD -- is it not allowed in League Football?

I'm not a football fan, I'm afraid, so I don't know, but to quote The Times, which is where I found this, The tactic so successfully adopted by Stoke City in the Premier League has always been popular in the amateur game. So I guess it must be allowed.

Stoke don't have a somersaulting player, but they have Rory Delap, whose incredible throwing is causing havoc with opposing team's defence. It's worth watching MOTD for. We're rather proud of him round here.

I'm astounded; I actually heard of Rory Delap. Do Stoke turn up on MoTD very often, then?

Actually, now I think about it, if this had happened in the Premiership the poor sod would have been rolling on the ground for twenty minutes, his team-mates would have been dashing up to intimidate the ref, and he'd have been stretchered off.

Poor kid! I'm surprised he didn't have a gusher of a bloody nose (and I wasn't cussing there, btw)
