Quote of the (Fri)day

Another excellent piece from favoured football writer, Simon Barnes, who somehow weaves Wuthering Heights seamlessly into a column on fan obsession with the great game:
"Football supporters cherish the illusion that a player shares his own relationship with the club — that of passion, commitment and loyalty beyond sense and logic. And always they feel a sense of betrayal when they discover that the reality is something different. A football fan is like the man who marries whore after whore and expects every one to be faithful to him for ever."
