Not The Stats: Eejit of the week.
THERE'S a time to try one of those smart-a **e penalties where you pause before chipping the ball with the effect of making yourself look really cool and the keeper like a total fool.
However, the time is not in the semi-finals of the First Division play-offs with a vital place in the moneybags Premiership at stake.
Nobody told Sunderland's Jeff Whitley, whose pathetic attempt at showboating resulted in him missing the vital spot-kick and condemning the Black Cats to another season in Division One. Mick McCarthy, left, was understandably not best pleased.
