    “and Rushden & Diamonds, from the Nationwide Conference, who beat Rushden & Diamonds 3-1 at Nene Park.”

    Hmm, not wanting to be pedantic or anything but…

    “whilst Arsenal looked ominous against an admittedly woeful Liverpool team yesterday afternoon. Watching the highlights on BBC2 last night, I was struck by success that Arsenal have had in transferring the “Highbury Library” atmosphere to Ashburton Grove”

    Woeful, WOEFUL! I did something that I never usually do (bitter end and all that) and stopped watching before the end. Appalling more like it.

    I swear tha this ground is even quieter than Highbury, astonishing really considering there is nearly another 20k people in there, have all these new fans come from Old Trafford?

    Oops. I’ll change it now.

    Right, now that’s done… I noticed swathes of empty seats just before he end there on Sunday, too. This annoys me more than anything else. By all means switch it off if you’re watching it at home, but surely not if you’ve spent £30 or more on a ticket. Public transport in London on a Sunday isn’t that bad.

    I was thinking at the weekend that I’m more-or-less never left a ground before the end of the game. This struck me particularly as swathes of people left the Withdean on Saturday whilst we were seven-nil up. If any of them missed number eight, then HAH.

    Mystified, I was.
