Once upon a time, summer brought respite from football: there was cricket and Wimbledon, but at least you didn't have the tedium of football to contend with. Now football goes on all year round: Newcastle yesterday was full of people wearing black and white stripes.|
As if this weren't enough, we are also overrun with reminiscences of some match from 50 years ago.

And now, the last straw, it is the hidden theme of the prize crossword. I am not impressed.
