    You said it Ron
    "Manchester United? Blackburn Rovers? Wolverhampton Wanderers? Sheffield Wednesday? The Arsenal? Isn't it? Tottenham Hotspur? Preston North End? Charlton Athletic? Crystal Palace? West Ham United? Mmm? Reassuring names, aren't they? When you're listening in some far flung corner of the globe to the World Service on a Saturday afternoon? Crackly reception? Interference? Cosy? Marvellous. Ooh - result! Four-fourty-five? Grandstand? Isn't it? Highlights on Match of the Day? Da-da-da-daa-da-da-da-daa-daa? Somehow comforting, isn't it, you know? Legendary names? Tony Gubba! Fathers and sons, on the terraces? Cheesy Peas at half time? Pipe for Dad, Mum's at home making the tea. Aw, everything's all right with the world, isn't it? Saturday afternoons? It's football. Mmm?"

    - yes, Ron Manager. On FA Cup Third Round day, yes, we're with you.
