8. OFF THE POST: Scottish ball boys too slow?

MOST COMMENTED

A complaint by France coach Raymond Domenech that the ball boys in Glasgow took they own sweet time getting the ball back in play while France lost 1-0 to Scotland Oct. 7 in European Championship qualifying was upheld by UEFA.

"Before the game I knew that the Scottish fans and team were a nation who believe in fair play," Domenech said. "But I was disappointed with the attitude of the ball boys who slowed the
game down whenever the ball went out of play. That was very disappointing for me from a country known for their fair play."

The referee's report mentioned the boys' sluggishness but Scotland coach Walter Smith said about the complaint, "It was brilliant that wasn't it. Seriously I think that is something that would happen in any country in the world."

David Taylor, the chief executive of the Scottish Football Association, said, "The happy ending is we got off with a warning. ... We'll need to make sure [they know] before the next game, which is against Georgia at home in March, even if we're 1-0 up with five minutes to go, even if the players are saying 'do you have to give the ball back so quickly?' that they do it."
