The series that was never meant to be a series continues today with a follow up to number 3 in the series, referee's being hit in the face. The only obvious way to go was with players being hit in the face.

This wasn't the planned topic for today but was inspired by this master fail from Chilean under 20 internationalist Bryan Carrasco in a recent game against Ecuador...



It's great the referee gave the foul against him. Dunno whether a booking followed but he should be embarrassed out of the game after that! I just love the commentators reactions to it all.

Now obviously that was a self inflicted and planned whack to the face. When it's not your player, and even sometimes when it is, we love to see players inadvertantly being smacked in the chops.

Whether it be kicking the ball straight into your own face, like Bury's Chris Brass...


Or standing too close to the person taking a thrown in...


Or if you're Robbie Savage by the ball, your team mates, the opposition and even the referee...


They're all classic things we love to see in football and not just us. I think this musical montage sums it all up rather quite nicely...
