After this weekends’ phenomenal displays of (un)sporting behaviour both at Villa and at Pride Park, I really cannot help myself but to collate an Alternative Awards list for this season. So here are some of the Heroes and Zeroes of the season in summary.
Please note, the list is neither exhaustive nor exclusive, if you have any specific examples of e.g. further blatant cheating, please get in touch via the facebook page and I take all suggestions into consideration..
