More tipsy rumblings

I know that he’s not that well received on most northern terraces, but I reckon that Nick Hornby got at least one thing right in Fever Pitch.  There’s a bit where essentially he says that football matches are generally crap.  We get eighty-odd minutes of terrible, boring or desperate football and it will be punctuated by a couple of minutes where something scintillating happens.  A couple of turns here, a dash there topped off with a perfectly placed pass and a tidy finish.  Some weeks you get fifteen minutes of the good stuff spread across the 90, others five, some weeks none at all.
