It’s a long way from Rome to Manchester


I wanted to express my heartfelt sympathy to those modest football fans who travelled to Rome. It is unfair and unjustified for millions of people who support any club other than yours to gloat.

Quoting Evra’s perceptive comment “men & boys” after you thrashed Arsenal seems highly inappropriate. I can’t think why anyone would want to see Sir Alex eating humble pie, surely he baked it?

So make that long journey home from Rome or the shorter one from the pub or the sofa with your heads held high. Your boys did you proud.

Yours dripping with schadenfreude

Someone who supports a team that didn’t win a title and didn’t get to a final and should know better than to enjoy others disappointment. But there you go that’s football.
