Like every true football fan outside of Devon, I will be wishing Lille the very best of luck against Manchester United this evening. The media have already got the knives out, the BBC calling Lille “the minnows” – the same “minnows” that beat the scum last season. What’s the betting, if Lille manage to pull of a similar feat tonight, the BBC will be kissing the arse of the Lille players and manager?

Another reason for me to be supporting Lille is that as a city, they are twinned with Leeds – they home of The Mighty Whites. So, if Lille do beat the scum, it’s a little bit like Leeds beating them.

As we all know, this millennium, Manchester United have not performed too well in Europe. Most notably, crashing out of the group stages against Benfica last season (Hahaha). If anybody wants to relive that wonderful European night, you can download the original commentary mix I made here. Great days.

As well as wishing Lille “good luck”, my support goes out to Leeds United who play QPR this evening and Bath City who are up against Rugby Town. If Halesowen can beat Kings Lyn, Sheffield Wednesday beat Luton, Palace beat Southend, and Barnsley & Hull draw, I’ll be a very happy chappy. It’s not much to ask, is it?

    What a tosser, you being a leeds fan would know all about scum on the terraces. Fitting that you side with Lille, bunch of whinging cheats, I just wish you white arses would have a disaster of your own just to see what it feels like.

    Greetings Anonymous!

    Glad you like the site – it’s always nice to hear from a fan.

    Not sure why you find it fitting to call me a tosser, but thanks (I think).

    I’m not going to go focus on the “whinging” comment too much, suffice to say, Sir Alex likes a good old moan himself. Had Lille taken a quick free kick and won 1-0, can you honestly see him taking it gracefully? Be honest now… :o)

    As for references to disasters, I hope you were joking. I wouldn’t like to think of you wishing harm upon fellow human beings. If you made the effort to read the time I blogged, you would see that it was actually made BEFORE the incidents at Lille took place.

    Oh, and Leeds have experienced more than their fair share of disasters. Let’s not forget that night in Istanbul, an event I wouldn’t wish upon anybody. Also, if Peter Ridsdale isn’t a disaster, I don’t know what is.

    When I wrote the blog, no offence was intended and I apologise if any was taken.

    Thanks for reading.

    Love Sean

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
