Zac Goldsmith spectacularly fails to understand football

Zac Goldsmith may be 20 points behind Sadiq Khan in the contest to become London's mayor, but that's not going to stop him from doing every thing he can to damage his chances even further.

And maybe not the best analogy when you've been polling badly for the last five months.

As host Nick Ferarri retorted:
