Something for the weekend
Posted by Robin Powell on August 14, 2015
Please excuse a slightly abbreviated version of SFTW this week.. I’m off to that temple of football Villa Park, where I fear that Manchester United are about to puncture the bubble of pre-season positivity that’s been growing in recent weeks over Birmingham B6.
(Have you ever stopped to think, by the way, how the blind optimism of us footy fans is rather like the perpetual expectation investors have that, despite decades of underperformance, this will be the year when finally things come good? More on that next week.)
