Glory are Nuts

With the media already on Perth Glory’s back about being “over physical” in what we thought was supposed to be a physical game, why would the club give these accusers more ammunition as they did this week?

Despite the accusations, going into round six the Glory were actually the most fouled team in the A league, so maybe they are more sinned against that sinners.

Even so, it seemed bizarre that the club would post on its website accusations by Gold Coast United coach Miron Bleiberg that Glory Captain Jacob Burns had Zenon Caravalla in a squirrel grip during the game, or in simple terms, grabbed his nuts.

Here is what is posted(Punctuation not corrected):

Bleiberg on Glory Captain Jacob Burns:

“Jacob Burns became like a bit of Vinnie Jones.
“Did you know? Did you notice what’s happened during the game? Remember what Vinnie Jones is famous for?”
“Ask (Gold Coast midfielder) Zenon (Caravella). Zenon is still complaining.”

Jacob Burns on Miron Bleiberg comments:

“If you give it out, you’ve got to be able to take it.
“It’s a man’s game. If they want to get their handbags out after the game, so be it.”

Hardly likely to endear people to Jacob, and not exactly going to dissipate the accusations that the Glory are “over physical” is it?

    I don’t know why you would possibly want to highlights those sort of actions by a member of your own team. The club would have been best served by ignoring it as much as possible, cause I bet Miron’s smile gets bigger every time it gets mentioned, and every ref in the league will now be watching Burns hands instead of the bloody ball.
