Did Richard Scudamore sneak in a secret Premier League draw embargo?

Posted by - August 20, 2009 - Birmingham, Football videos, Portsmouth, Premier League

Three points or zilch

There has now been 16 matches played in the new Premier League season and we are yet to witness a draw. Birmingham and Portsmouth seemed to be heading towards the inevitable 0-0 draw I had predicted until an injury time penalty was awarded against Pompey keeper David James.

When James went to remonstrate with the assistant referee, he clearly said: “Go away, David. You know the rules: no draws.”*

We know your game, Scudamore. Just because of the outcry against the 39th game it doesn’t mean you can sneak American appeal into the Prem by doing away with draws. You’ll never get away with it!

*May be completely untrue

    What’s your point? This is a joke but I don’t find it at all funny. It was a blantant penalty wether James had his eye on the ball or not he went through the player. IMO he should have been sent off.

    That’s what keeps selling the Premier League around the world. Everybody knows the worth of three points in the Premier League. Just ask the three news boys who have all already scooped a win.
