If there was any justice in this world I would now be sitting in the Stands of Villa Park lubricating my tonsils in preparation for 90 minutes of yelling encouragement at Alan Pardew's Claret & Blue Army. But I'm not. Why? Because of the twelve of us who have season tickets at Upton Park - and have had for 15 years - not a single one was allocated a Semi Final ticket. Not one. You can imagine how impressed we all are. Anyway, nothing I can do about it, so I'm spending today researching a think tank pamphlet I am writing for publication later in the year. I'd love to tell you what it is going to be about, but if I did I'd have to shoot you. COME ON YOU IRONS!
PS Does anyone have an email address or phone number for Teresa Gorman? If so, please email me privately.
