I stood behind that very nice man Adrian Chiles in the lunch queue earlier. He was wearing knee-length shorts. I was wearing a shirt dress.
I’ve just finished reading We Don’t Know What We’re Doing, Adrian Chiles’s account of the 2005-06 season as he travelled around the country watching games with West Brom fans even more fanatical, in some cases, than he is. I’d recommend it to anyone, but especially to anyone whose team aren’t traditionally a big winning side. It’s heartening to discover that promotion and relegation feel the same for everyone else, too. Although I can barely call myself a fan in comparison to most of the people he meets.
But it’s a really really wonderful, heartwarming, funny, sad book and I’m glad I picked it up. Buy your copy now. Buy two!
