We all remember the phenomenon.
The game is in progress on a wet Wednesday night in Bolton. There's not much going on but hey a growing hubbub is rising on the terrace as fans wake up to the fact that a stray dog has run onto the pitch and is capering about and chasing the ball.
Of course the ref stops the match and makes towards the party "pooper" but he can't be caught and dodges the advances of the man in black!
Players get involved - on all fours, pretending to be dogs in order to entice the match-interrupting mutt to capture - for many of them the hardest work they've done all evening.
But no, it's a Jack Russell and not only a better ball player than half the overpaid timeservers on show but also no mug.
You've guessed correctly. The footy bigwigs are set to release diminutive doggies onto the pitch in the event that games take a dip in interest.
Well it certainly beats goalline techno!
