Schadenfreude Backfire

Please let anyone but Portsmouth win the FA Cup. Please let them be patronised to death, their fifteen minutes spoilt by preening hacks saying the big boys didn't care. I can put up with the pain of supporting Newcastle United only as long as the Big Four win everything in sight - and their self-pitying, jester-hatted fans have the contemptible grace to never give a shit.

What we need is a breakaway league for basketcase clubs - the sides with no trophies; the teams who fuck up when it's easier to win. No title winners ever. Second place for all.

And still we'd come third.
