When Saturday Comes – 2010’s best and worst football moments

Best ~ Meeting Steve Hodge at a book fair and finding him to be a thoroughly decent chap who was happy to chat to a mere mortal; he’s got an impressive knowledge of contemporary players (he gave me the low-down on Leicester City’s young prospects), though he did predict England v Germany – on the following day – would be close…
Worst ~ The sinking feeling when I heard Leicester City were being taken over by Thai duty free magnates. The owner of the club is now a 25-year-old who calls himself “Top”; the stadium is to be renamed the King Power Stadium; Sven-Göran Eriksson is manager and thinks it’s worth us signing David Beckham. Apparently the owner is willing to pay “top” dollar (pun copyright the Leicester Mercury) to get us into the Premier League, and so far things haven’t gone too badly but surely it can all only end in tears?
