101 uses for Gordon Taylor #67

I’ve suddenly realised another use for Gordon Taylor, when he finally hangs his boots up as chair of the Professional Footballers Association. Having listened to him on Today this morning justifying Roy Carroll’s failure to ‘fess up that the ball crossed in the line in the Man U-Spurs game, Sinn Fein might consider offering him a job.

Earlier in the programme Martin McGuinness was denying any alleged link between the IRA and last month’s bank robbery in Belfast. As he does whenever the IRA is under suspicion (Colombia, anyone?).

Can you imagine it? Taylor and Sinn Fein – a match made in heaven (or is that hell, where black is white and 2 + 2 = 5?).
