The lost art of sledging

Whatever the result of the John Terry trial, what's remarkable is the low standard of "handbags" verbals between Terry and our old defender Anton Ferdinand. Shagging gestures, you're smelly gestures, a lipreader spotting the words “f***ing knobhead” and more 'c' words than even Peter Cook and Dudley Moore could produce on a Derek and Clive album. It's not exactly Wildean. Oh for a footballer who could produce a more original insult, something akin to Monty Python's "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!"
