And anyone who can make head or tail over whatever went on here is a better man than I. The image of a minibus of charged-up ultras in downtown Kingston, Surrey at 8am is, well, bizarre.
It’s not been all good news, however.
It has been a big week for women’s football.
Suzanne Wrack analyses that deal here.
A glance at the WSL fixture list will tell you that the final round of matches sees Arsenal take on Manchester City, a potential blockbuster to remind of Anfield 1989 for those of a Gunner persuasion. The aim now for Arsenal is to climb clear of City, who do not play this weekend, so that final game is a celebration rather than a nail-biter.
This, then, counts as a game in hand for Arsenal; they have two on City. They can nudge a point clear with a win on the Wirral today. Their midweek win over Bristol City settled the nerves, while City went through the mill in a 4-3 win at Reading. Vivianne Miedema, the record-smashing goal machine, scored a hat-trick, and is the player Liverpool must stop to have a chance.
Liverpool, meanwhile, were on the end of a 4-0 thrashing by Chelsea in midweek. They are in no danger of relegation, which sadly is going to befall Yeovil, who have all sorts of problems, but it has been a disappointing season for them.
