Great night for Sam and 10,426 others
I listened to the snore draw
tonight on the radio at work. Why, oh why do we perservere with these friendlies? What does Sven learn by playing Beckham and Gerrard for 83 minutes, Owen for the full 90 and giving Johnson a run out on the wing for 20?
Great credit to the Dutch side for breaking with tradition and wearing a black and white kit instead of their famous orange. Both countries were backing the anti-racism campaign Stand Up Speak Up
. As well as Holland, Portugal and Russia also used the black and white kits in their games tonight to show their resistance to racism. What about the Spanish then?
Still no mention of the U20's match
last night - must have been in 10,426 people's imagination but what a great feeling to witness one of our own
score for the national team. Lets hope we see that in the senior squad one day soon.
Wow, 400 Man Utd fans protested 'noisily' outside Old Trafford tonight against the proposed take-over by the American Malcolm Glazer. A fan was quoted on the Radio 5 Live as saying: "I don't think the club should be owned by a Yank, it should be owned by the real supporters in Manchester."
Um, 400 people out of the millions of fans they are supposed to have! What a joke, give me the Valley Party anyday.
