Tam Cowan: Let's not sit on defence.

Byline: Tam Cowan

SCRAP the offside rule - that's one possible way of allowing spectators to enjoy more goals at football matches.

But what about this for another?

What about following the fine example set by Motherwell and Dundee during Wednesday's eight-goal thriller at Fir Park ... and simply instruct both sets of players to defend like schoolboys?

Motherwell currently have a wobblier defence than Michael Jackson

That's bizarre, considering Stevie Hammell and Martyn Corrigan are two of the best players in the SPL And you've got to remember wehave three defensive legends on the coaching staff Terry Butcher, Maurice Malpas and Chris McCart.

Then again, as Tony Bennett, Andy Williams and Engelbert Humperdinck spent five days a week showing yours truly all the tricks of their particular trade, who says I still wouldn't be the first to be booed off at the karaoke?

CAPTION(S):

DODGY DEFENCE:; Michael Jackson is a regular down Fir Park way
