The Diary is looking at it’s Mickey Mouse Watch
After R*ngers win, ok, impressive win, at Swinecastle on Saturday there was much moaning about the amount of added time afforded to the game by the Maroon half of Edinburgh.
Well, Greyfriars Jambo Jim is doing the moaning, which, in retrospect is no big deal. He moans about everything. His FBI profile is marked ‘Potential Serial Killer‘.
His moans seemed to rankle some. One R*ngers website appeared like a Gorilla in the mist to breakdown the second half stoppages.
They state injuries to Johnsson, Black and Jelavic saw the game stopped for 4 minutes and 10 seconds. If you add the 4 substitutions, taking 30 seconds per sub, then that is a further 2 minutes.
Having checked the maths with an independent adjudicator that comes to 6 minutes 10 seconds. The Diary think some protest too much. Tommy Sheridan can only hope for such a decent, well thought defence.
The calculations only work in the perfect world where ‘constancy’ comes into play and not just something that is spoke about in hushed tones at M.I.B’s meetings.
With only 5 being played them it can be argued that Hearts were done out of 1 minute 10 seconds to try and get an equaliser or for Kevin Kyle to further prove he is a c@ck
