Billy on the Box: They think it’s all Rover but no-one Twiggs on

Published 16/11/2012

Despite Mark Sidebottom’s warning on Final Score that some of us may find Cliftonville striker Liam Boyce’s goal celebration ‘distasteful’ I was howling with laughter.

How often do you see a footballer, on all fours, cocking his leg and pretending to pee? Well, apart from a night out with Chelsea, perhaps.

This though was the highlight of the show, the rest lurching from one disaster to another, and talking of that it was nice to hear that they had a minute’s silence at Ballyskeagh — makes a change from the usual 90.

It was such a good game we got a clip of the players walking off at half-time but worse was to come as our intrepid host reliably informed us that ‘Gary Twigg was back in the Portadown attack’ for the visit of Ballinamallard.

This was news to us all, given than Twigg isn’t allowed to play until January having signed from Shamrock Rovers, but that’s the danger of coming to work in a DeLorean, you leave the house and don’t know when you’ll arrive.

Perhaps, someone had thrown a twig for Boyce (pictured) to chase to keep him fit, but with an imminent trip to Ballymena United this weekend, I wouldn’t worry about thinking up a new celebration.
