Sneak was of course in Portugal the other day, for the start of Euro 2004. And thoroughly enjoyable it was too, until the last-gasp catastrophe against the French ended all Sneak's fun. With nothing better to do after the game than leaf through the Euro 2004 match brochure. Sneak was surprised to discover that Kim Milton Nielsen, the Danish referee who famously sent off Beckham and disallowed Sol Campbell's goal against Argentina at the French World Cup in 98, is in fact a Danish IT manager by profession, listing his hobbies as "computer" (sic). Sneak was glad to see that all the training in making unpopular decisions, dealing with high levels of stress, and battling overheating fans has finally paid off for one of our number. Even if it has sent him blind.
