Poor old Chris Foy.

If he's not incurring the repeated wrath of Jose Mourinho, he's lasting barely a minute as referee of Newcastle v Swansea.

Foy was the victim of a freak accident in which he took a clearance from Fabricio Coloccini full in the face in the opening minute of the Premier League clash at St James' Park:


Foy took it in good humour, and initially seemed fine, but he must have been suffering symptoms of concussion as he was replaced soon afterwards.

Reports that Mourinho had offered Newcastle players a biscuit to wound his nemesis remain unconfirmed.
