I love typos that turn innocent sentences into innuendo.

To return to the subject of rude names for footballers, one example is the Portuguese goalkeeper, Joaquim Manuel Sampaio da Silva, better known simply as Quim. Quim currently keeps goal for Benfica (the club whose motto is "E pluribus unum"). Quim missed the 2002 World Cup after failing a drugs test.

Michael May (1996-Present) was once acting as a linesman for a Cornish Cub Scots match between St Erth and Hayle. May's son was playing in the same match and was brought down by a late tackle. The referee, Martin Rolfe said "Play on". However, May was understandably angry. What was not so understand was why he felt he needed to heat but Rolfe. Rolfe asked May why he head-butted him, to which May responded by head-butting him again, breaking Rolfe's nose.

In January 1997, May was forced by Penzance magistrates to pay Rolfe 150 compensation and to be put on probation for a year. Rolfe said after the court hearing:

I have not picked up a whistle since the attack. When you are refereeing children they will accept almost any decision you make. The most you will get back is a little moan. But the people on the touchline - the parents - they go berserk.

When did 3 o'clock become the abitary time for kick off's on a Saturday? Before the advent of floodlighting,in a game in February wouldnt it be dark around 4 o' clock,making it very difficult to see the ball?

Ah, but floodlighting in soccer matches goes back to 1878.

If you look at old football programmes you will see that used to kick off earlier.

In the 1890s, "Lord" George Sanger's travelling fair had as its main attraction an elephant which took and saved penalty kicks. It was so good that many thought that the elephant was unbeatable.

Then, four professional players from Leicester Fosse FC decided to challenge the elephant. The first three failed to beat the elephant. Then the last player, William Keech (c. 1860-?) came up with a plan. As the elephant was so large, the only way he could score was to work a dummy and send the elephant the wrong way.

So, Keech did a shimmy in his run-up and the elephant dived to the right. Keech then kicked the ball into the top-left corner of the net and scored. Using these tactics, he drew with the elephant 2-2, then won a rematch 3-2.

Not that I've ever seen an elephant trying to save penalties, but "dived" is not the word immediately presents itself to my imagination.

That's what it said in the book.
