Didn't watch it either, just saw the half time score and thought it best to avoid the newspapers for a few days, then checked again at 80 minutes and it was 3-1. Couldn't help having a little chuckle....and a chortle, but NO guffawing
I did watch it and they got battered in the second half, best team won. Entertaining, ho ho ho.
I was watching last week's West Ham v Man Utd game in my local when a rag walked in who'd obviously left home with the score 2-1 to the rags. The look on his face and the expressed incredulity, well it took a lot of willpower to stop me falling about laughing.
I must admit the vitriol directed our way by both fans and the media for committing the crime of being taken over by a rich owner shocked me, especially as I didn't the same level of jealousy directed towards Chelsea when Abramhovich took over, so my attitude now is "fuck em".
Rags were pretty hypocritical at the time, complaining about Chelsea buying the league, without the slightest embarresment. But yes, that's my feelings to all the former big four
After the Final on Wednesday I overheard two fans of L'pool and Spurs slagging City and Chelsea for both having owners who pumped money into their clubs.The media go along with this line, but never mention that when L'pool were in their pomp they were owned along with Everton by one of the wealthiest families in Europe, the Moores, owners of Littlewoods Pools, department stores and most of the country's mail-order catalogues.It wouldn't be stretching a point to say that L'pools (and Evertons) relative decline coincided with the decline of the Moores' family businesses due to changing shopping patterns and the advent of the National Lottery, and the eventual sale of the club to the Americans.
