It's with this lesser but more immediate wisdom in mind that I celebrate here the Mighty Reds' recent triumphs and the treading of their erstwhile rivals into the dust. True Champions, eh!! Best start to a season in a gazillion years. North London quakes. Merseyside shivers. Tyneside trembles. (Not that they count anymore.) The noisy neighbours will soon get theirs - again.
The funny thing is that the guys I teach fall silent when I ask them who they support. Sheer embarrassment, I guess.
