Reds and Blues flop

A wonderful match on Thursday night. The Reds with their tails up… 

No it wasn’t the red of Manchester United, but that of Athletic Bilbao. This Spanish team taught Manchester United a lesson in attractive, inventive football.

Don’t get me wrong, or biased. United have on many occasions been in the vanguard of everything that is beautiful about the world game.
But not on Thursday. No signor.  

And the Mancunians in Naples, City, made it a double flop for Manchester. Mama mia!

Congratulations to the Spaniards and Italians in Manchester – and everywhere else, because for once the fruits of the Arab and American “entrepreneurial spirt” – or in the Arab case the sheer luck of being born with oil in the back garden – came a cropper. 

Living in Accrington, 15 miles north of Manchester, where for many years local team Accrington Stanley have been the punch bag of English football, it’s good to report that we drew against table toppers Southend United. 

Mama son tanto felice…
