A phrase, used while playing football to describe awful captaincy.

When a team is 'doing a wilson', the bad result is blamed on the captains leadership & the team must be:

Losing by more than 100 goals
Falling out with each other
Executing awful tactics
Paul: That was a bad game
Josh: Our team was 'doing a wilson'
Paul: Where did that phrase even originate from?
Josh: Some idiot captain called Sam Wilson, who used to make his team lose every week by awful captaincy.
