    Default Linesman for Saturday

    Oleksandr Saliy is one of the "assistant referees" for Saturday - I know that after 1966 we have a long-standing affinity with Russion linesmen but how long have we had Russian linesmen in the Football League.

    I don't think the 1966 linesman was Russian and neither is this one.

    In a pedantic mood are we?

    Tofik Bahram oglu Bahramov was the linesman in 1966 and although he would now have been classed as Azernaijani he was certainly Russian at the time as he was a citizen of the USSR.

    Oleksandr Saliy is strictly speaking English but as Ukraine is referred to by the FA

    as his 'native' land and Ukraine was part of the USSR when he was born - to us old folk he's Russian!

    So if the Linesman does a shit job and he's Russian you'll feel differently as compared to if he does a shit job and he's not Russian?

    He might have been a Soviet but he was definitely not Russian.

    You may carry on saying that though since he is usually referred to as the Russian linesman. lol

    As long as the lino is shit and gives offside when the player runs from 3 yards on side and gets a throw in wrong when it happens right next to him, all will be right with the world

    Which one was it that didn't give the pen as a load of fans around me seemed convinced it was this Eastern European fella! How they would know when even if they knew what he looked like they couldn't see him from up in the gods where we were sat!

    If it was him he's obviously been at the bootleg vodka which has blinded him!

    I don't think it was him.

    I don't mind admitting along with just about everyone else was calling him a CLINT and wanting his head on a spit
