    I think you do snooker a great dis-service.

    Couldn’t agree more with the sentiments of your article. It had all the air of two teams that had succeeded with their minimum ambition for the season – to qualify for next season’s Champions League – and therefore couldn’t raise the enthusiasm to play for what is, in their eyes, a piece of silverware whose legend has long since diminished.

    I heard one theory bandied around by Mourinho or Ferguson – can’t remember which – that suggested both teams were suffering from fatigue at the end of a long season. That might account for about 10% of why the match was such a failure. I think we’ve both covered the reasoning behind the remaining 90% between us.
