The re-arranged World Cup qualifier between England and Poland was played out with the roof closed on Wednesday, but even that failed to stop those in attendance being hit by a huge shower of shit.
Criticism had been aimed at the Polish FA for not closing the roof on Tuesday despite rain being forecast, but having watched the game many are now claiming that they should have left the roof open so that it could not have gone ahead, ever. ‘To be honest some of the less blindly optimistic fans were expecting a shower of shit, but I don’t think anybody really thought it would be so relentless for the whole ninety minutes.’, said one unlucky fan who had managed to stay on in Poland to watch the rescheduled game.
‘The lads who had to get home for work or whatever have been really lucky that they didn’t get the full force of that shower, and they might be getting compensation. Those of us that stayed are now exploring our options to see if we have a claim for being subjected to it. Standing in the pissing rain for ages on Tuesday, wondering what was going on was much more fun than going through what I witnessed.’
English fans have become used to dealing with showers of shit over the years, but the sheer ferocity of the latest one has left many stunned. It was not just those in attendance who suffered from it either, with the severity being such that millions watching at home were affected too, leaving many grumbling over their beer and calling for Hodgson to be sacked even so early in his tenure as manager.
In fact, the only person who seemed unaffected by the massive shower of shit was a Mr Harry Redknapp, who watched the whole thing with a wry smile on his face.
