      A couple of years ago Gary Lineker sued Charterhouse School because his son didn't get the grades to go to university. Pushy parents, eh?

      football at all levels in this country - especially the young players

      Not heard this before - I can find links saying he complained, but none stating he sued, are you sure about this as it would seem pretty unusual?

      That's not even remotely related to what he's saying though, is it?

      Did he actually sue them? There is no record of that as far as I can see.

      I don't think he sued them did he? Just blamed them for his son's lack of A's.

      Ah, my mistake. I remember hearing him say on the radio that he was considering legal action. He obviously never carried it out. I think the point is an interesting one though. He's blaming the school for his son not getting the grades. It seems to me to be the mark of a parent with a skewed view of his child's limitations.

      I rather like George Lineker's response though: "Didn't get into uni... cheers school u massive knobbers!"

      My 10 year old used to play for Mile Oak Wanderers and I have to say they had/have a terrific policy and charter regarding parent behaviour. Whenever a parent was out of order, the coach used to deal with it very well indeed.

      On the other side of the coin, about 8 years ago I would occasionally 'run the line' when my former step son played for Worthing United. WUFC again were very well run and the coaches were hot about 'proper behaviour'.. although one race issue occurred which was rather distasteful.
      Anyway I recall one game when I was given so much abuse from opposition parents and coaches that I approached the ref (who i didn't know) and suggested we call the game off. The ref (a mate of the opposition coach) declined funnilly enough, and spent the rest of the game ignoring my flag!
