Handshake suspended

Recommended Posts

a sensible decision, The whole handshake thing is merely a charade to please the tv companies.

If it is supposed to show respect between opposing teams then that is an even bigger farce. What

is the point of forcing players who hate each other to shake hands.

The Premier League actually suggested this to replace the handshake. :lol:


Mark Hughes snubbed a Premier League suggestion for QPR to form a guard of honour for Chelsea on Sunday as an alternative to the cancelled pre-match handshake, he has revealed.

The Premier League bowed to pressure to abandon the handshake ritual on Thursday night, ahead of this weekend's west London derby at Stamford Bridge to avoid any chance of it affecting Blues captain John Terry's upcoming racism trial.

And Hughes admitted his surprise at the guard of honour idea, saying: "They were looking for solutions for the game at the weekend and the Premier League were throwing things out there and said at one point that one alternative would be to form a guard of honour and clap Chelsea onto the pitch, and I'm thinking there is absolutely no chance of that happening."

Where's Alexis Sanchez when you need him? He can play for us, fall down in front of every QPR player and then they'd get two red cards (one of which laughable), get a dodgy penalty for a supposed push, then get two stonewallers turned down and lose the match 1-0 despite being dominating your opponents with just nine men...
