Vardy innocent this time
Spiky Jamie Vardy
Jamie Vardy is, erm, a bit of a spiky character at times.
The Leicester front man came up in the cold hard world of non-league football, and he still carries with him some of the mores and culture of the lower leagues.
Such as drinking bottles of blue WKD after games (Vardy was bordering on alcoholism in his early years at Leicester), and generally being a bit of a jack the lad.
Some of this adds to his fun character, but there are more negative, nasty sides too, such as his over-the-top verbal abuse of referees.
Vardy is a wonderful footballer, but he’s been involved in some incidents which leave a bitter taste in the mouth.
Did not call Mike Dean a ‘fat bald cunt’
So there were the predictable ‘typical Vardy’ when he appeared to be lipread calling Mike Dean ‘a fat bald cunt’ yesterday.
But upon closer inspection, Vardy was the victim of some presumptuous lipreading, as he actually said, ‘What am I supposed to do? Fucking bulldozed.’
People want Jamie Vardy banned now, for calling the ref names? The day you can't call the ref/lino a "fucking bald cunt" the game is done.

Vardy caught on camera calling Mike Dean a "fucking bald c*nt". I thought stuff like that was supposed to be an automatic red card nowadays?
