The first para of a book -The Football Man- written in 1968 and discovered a few years ago and reprinted. Is this still true today despite the Premiership? Or has this time changed it and the supporters? Thinking Millwall still reflects us.

"The point about football in Britain is that it is not a sport that people take to, like cricket or tennis or running long distances. Its inherent in the people. It’s built into the urban psyche, as much as a common experience to our children as are uncles and school. It’s not a phenomenon; it’s an everyday matter. There is more eccentricity in deliberately disregarding it than in devoting life to it. It’s more significant to national character than theatre has. Its sudden withdrawal from the people would bring deeper disconsolation than to deprive them of television.

The way we play the game, organise it and reward it reflects the kind of community we are."

Bet Whisky met him.

I doubt if Whisky met him - the bloke liked it all roads up ....

"In later years one of his favourite TV programmes was Dinner Ladies, "because it's about loneliness." Nor did he ever marry. "I tried both sexes, but ended up wishing they would all just go away," he said.

Says he also had a semi in Twickenham - not to be confused with a raging hard-on in Blackheath.

Jesus, is there nowhere safe nowadays?
