Watched a game of Goalball betwen London and Southampton at a Paralympics Possibles event at Bath University last night (London won 9-6).
Both teams have three goalkeepers, the ball has a bell inside it and as the players have different levels of vision, both sides wear blindfolds so that everyone is performing on a level playing field. Games have to be watched in silence (a bit like the Emirates) but you can cheer when a goal is scored.
Perhaps the Premier League should take note and ensure that both West Ham and Man United wear blindfolds on Saturday to ensure a fairer game?
