JO DAVISON: Cheerleaders an own goal?

Distraction? A Cheerleader
Distraction? A Cheerleader
Have your say

Heard the excuse Crystal Palace fans have come up with for their team’s poor performance?

The glamorous cheerleaders brought in to raise morale at home games are distracting the players.

Fans reckon the troupe is an own-goal - and the team are bottom because players are too busy eyeing up the scantily-clad girls.

I’d like to say pull the other one; it’s got pom-poms on it. That surely no footballer would risk all for the sake of a bit of skirt.

Just as well the Blades axed their cheerleaders years ago.
