    That this rather meaningless game still means so much is an indicator that we haven't won much recently, though.

    Still, it was a belter, to which United certainly contributed.

    May be true and I don't think you're gonna get too many chances to change this, but what a performance. How football should be played.

    Interesting comments regarding skin colour of players.


    Ron Atkinson: "It's a toss-up between one of the coloured front people" (for man of the match) (6m21s)

    Commentator: "...booing of the black players" (39s)

    There was nothing wrong with the commentator mentioning booing that was directed at Albion's black players.

    Far from it.

    It's bizarre to think it would be ok to say that in pretty much any company. What on earth was he thinking with fellow commentators knowing you've got all that technology around you?

    He was off the air in the UK. But international broadcasters get the raw feed ("Commentary will start in 10 seconds", etc.) and some snitch in a Dubai pub was on the phone to the UK like a shot.

    What a plonker.

    Without black players he would never have progressed beyond Cambridge United.

    The great team that hal referrs to was built by his predecessor Ronnie Allen.

    Atkinson was just in the right place at the right time and added Brendon Batson from his previous club, Cambridge.
