I'm reminded of Karren Brady's alleged question to Ron Atkinson, during an unmemorable Villa - Brum City match in the early 90s.

[ For the non-enlightened:
Karren Brady: Young 'undercover blonde' MD of Birmingham City FC
Ron Atkinson: Manager of Aston Villa, 50s, white.
Dalian Atkinson: Villa striker, 20s, black. ]

Brady: "So Ron, is Dalian Atkinson your son?"
