About Me

Old Coulsdon, United Kingdom
An acquired refugee from the days of exile at Selhurst Park, my first game being a dreary 1-1 draw with Millwall. I followed the team back to The Valley, and have now been with them for over twenty years. You will find me in the Rose of Denmark or in the Lower West. Follow me on Twitter @DeepestDarkest1

Methinks he doth protest too much

Am I the only one to feel a little cynical at Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United's reaction to the overtures of Real Madrid to young Ronaldo? Would this be the same Sir Alex, and Manchester United, who Jaap Stam claims in his book "tapped" him up using similar tactics?

This sort of activity seems to exist throughout football, and so I await the clandestine knock on the door from some furtive figure, wishing to lure my son away from his title winning Old Coulsdon Colts team. If said person has a Scottish accent, I may just have to refuse him entry as a matter of principle, but then again I think I would be more likely to get on the phone to The Valley.........


  1. Nice to see yet another interesting writer -and particularly one who aspires only to blog when there is something of import to expound on. Look forward to reading more.
