We've waited long time for another footballing mishap to be blamed on the colour of a team's jersey. Alex Ferguson was famously derided for pinning the blame for a defeat on the Manchester United kit manufacturers.
The season was 1995-96, Manchester United were in the process of overhauling Newcastle United's once unassailable lead. In their new grey kit, they found themselves 3-0 down at half-time against Southampton in the Dell (always a bogey ground for Man United).
At half-time, they emerged in their blue and white strip and proceeded to win the second half 1-0. When Jon Motson asked him what was going on, Fergie just said "The players don't like the grey strip."
Whatever kit manufacturer decided it would be a good idea to kit out his team in a luminous yellow jersey should be hauled in for a bollocking today.
Peterborough United were away at Northampton Town. At one stage, midfielder Michael Bostwick got on the ball in midfield and rolled a perfect pass across to the full back who was charging up the wing.
On closer inspection this was revealed not to be a full back but a steward who was strolling up the touchline performing his duties. Like many of his kind, the steward was wearing a luminous yellow jacket.
Peterborough eventually won the game 1-0 thanks to a late headed winner from the brilliant Chris Forrester. Insert obligatory reference to Martin O'Neill here.
However, it is Michael Bostwick who is hogging the headlines. It has put the man on the map.
