I’m not sure I’ve witnessed football or indeed anything quite so debased as the League cup was last night.
The League cup is gone. Instead we’ve got a tournament that nobody wants to play in and nobody wants to sponsor.
The game wasn’t broadcast by anyone and so only the lost souls who clung to each other amongst the 75,000 empty seats watched the disjointed mess that unfolded.
Even at fivers and tenners Wembley was far too arduous an undertaking for any rightminded person.
Anyone who tells you that they were there will undoubtedly do so in the same manner of those that tell you they heard an IRA bomb go off in the 1970s. With a reluctance and acceptance.
Spurs won and Dele Alli scored and so all is right with the world, eh? Marvellous. Heart warming.
