Ipswich manager Paul Jewell goes all Andy Gray on us
Ipswich Town boss Paul Jewell is at the centre of a sexism row after post-match comments about a female assistant referee.
The Tractor Boys’ gaffer was infuriated after his side were refused a late penalty at Birmingham only for the home side to grab a winner. He was in no doubt as to who was to blame for the defeat: lineswoman Amy Fearn.
Jewell said: “I think everyone to a man thought it was a penalty. Unfortunately to every man, but not a woman.
“Although the referee didn’t have a good view, I thought the lineswoman, or whatever she’s called, had a great view.”
Take a bow, son, you’re heading for career suicide!
“Women are for Mercedes bonnets, not Championship touchlines,” he didn’t add.
