Notes

In the West of Ireland, listening to the wireless on Saturdays early kick off, where Didier Drogba actually didn’t score, you’d have thought as a neutral that Burnley hadn’t bothered to turn up, the way it was being commentated, but on the TV highlights later that night, you realized that Burnley could well have been 2-0 up, before we scored, on another day and it wasn’t even mentioned on the wireless.

Weird or what?

That telly shot of the Burnley fan doing his nut as a sitter was missed, minus his teeth was priceless. We’ve all been there teeth in of course!

Peace.

Kev.
