Kitman: Mike Riley has a green day for Arsenal-Hull City match

Why didn’t you tell me you were wearing green?

Spongebob referee Mike Riley is likely to find himself in trouble after allowing both goalkeepers, himself and his two assistants to take to the pitch in green shirts for last night’s FA Cup tie between Arsenal and Hull City.

Riley decided to take the cup tie back to the old school, to the days when all goalies wore green, and allowed Arsenal’s Lukas Fabianski and Hull’s Bo Myhill to play in the same coloured jersey. Sadly, he let them both wear gloves so the look was not completely authentic.

If OTP was in Riley’s shoes we would claim that a couple of the shirts was white before Cesc Fabregas got to work!
