.. did anyone notice some 10 year ball-boy running around the pitch collecting all the balls off the rest of the ball-boys which meant we went from "multi-ball" to just the one ball. Some of you may recall, after watching Soccer AM, that Everton did the same thing after going 1-0 up late on. Does anyone know if they got punished for it and what the punishment should/could be?! I know we were o.k in the end, but i wouldn't have been impressed if we'd lost 2-1!

Thoughts/Opinions?!

I noticed that, thought it was not allowed by the FA after the Everton example. Isnt it either no multiball or always multiball??

Swansea probably get away with it because the Welsh FA step in and say they can!

on a similar subject did anyone watch the Boro game last week?
The Balls boys were returning balls almost before they went off. Very well coached obviously

I didn't even notice this on Saturday but think the multiball system is something the league need to stop.

They mentioned that on The Championship today.

Was there any crowd unrest that meant it was in the players best interest to blow-up early or was the Ref a closet Shrimper?
