Where less helpful pundits would talk about the ‘far post’, Ron – never one to discriminate against the uninitiated – thoughtfully provides a clue as to the location of this post to those not familiar with the rudiments of goalpost construction.
After years of persuasion by National Institute of Commentating boffins, Ron eventually went so far as to extend this mathemathical approach to post identification. So much so that he eventually cleared up the whole near post issue as well. First post it is then.
Ron might say:
.. and nobody’s picked up Owen at the second post. Shame about the finish.
Mrs Ron might say:
That new sunbed not arrived then Ron? Don’t worry love, it might come in the second post.
