Slippery when wet

Not since William III's horse tripped on a molehill, resulting in his death, has an event of such transcendental global significance turned on a tuft of grass. But so it was that Chelsea's John Terry was unable to close to deal with a penalty kick last night (or was it early this morning?) in Moscow.

Conspiracy theorists should note that the pitch was laid by an Irish company -- a place where Man Utd are the preferred team of the great and the good.
