It is my habit, these last few years, to leave my seat at the ems as the whistle goes for half time and trot lightly down the stairs in order to queue for a coffee.
In case you have never been there I should point out that the queues at the Ems at half time have been designed to move backwards. You might start in fifth position, but then the guy in front is joined by five friends who place their half time orders with their compadre, and before you know it, it is not five comestibles that are being ordered in front of you but 25.
I thought of this today, watching Palace v Arsenal and seeing the Palace excellencies return to their posh seats after Arsenal had scored their first goal. Obviously they have problems in the board room like we have in the upper tier.
But that was just an intro to the big moment of the game: the Dance of Mr Wenger, upon the scoring of the second goal. We haven’t seen his little jig for quite a while, and this was a perfect example.
And what else of no consequence? Well there was the release of the eagle before the game which was nice. And at the end of the game we have double the number of points as Manchester U, which is quite a thought.
So there we are, top of the league. Rather nice eh?
Oh yes, BT Sprout said it was not convincing.
