Good morning.

Another set of friendlies that nobody with half a brain saw fit to broadcast. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. You let everyone into the ground for free. Then you film it and sell it online at a fiver a head.

This achieves two things. You encourage people to go to live games, especially kids …and are perceived as noble, generous and wise. The second is that you treat your fans like grown ups whilst keeping them on the boil as puntersĀ  nurturing and indulging their desire in spending money with you.

Opposed to this garbage text updates business. Multimillion pound business and we’re offering text updates. & Co need to fire whoever’s running this wing of the franchise out of a cannon. These people would offer a man having a stroke a cigarette.

There are people posting ‘footage’ of the goals from the last few games on You Tube that are filmed on mobile phones from TV sets. What’s next, hireĀ  that court room artist from the News At Ten to sketch impressions of salient moments of play?

Mirko Vucunic is apparently on the verge of signing for Juve. What a shocker. Let’s hope that something comes of our supposedly in depth discussions with Los Blancos.

And why can’t my next door neighbours just get into their car and naff off without slamming ever bloody thing they own with a hinge three times? It must be quieter living next door to car crushing plant.
