Not even referees want to see Blackpool embarrassed

Refs angling for trips to seaside?

Here’s the photographic evidence that proves even match officials cannot bear to see Premier League minnows Blackpool subjected to top-flight humiliation.

With Arsenal coasting to victory and Blackpool’s defenders unable to get close to the Gunners’ speedy attacks, referee Mike Jones took it upon himself to tackle Jack Wilshere.

The England international was floored by the ref’s clumsy tackle, but Jones could only point and laugh. At least a booking, surely?

    At least the ref should give himself a yellow card!! That’s only fair!
