To Russia without love

My colleague, a keen Chelsea supporter, is in a high state of excitement as he's off to Moscow for the match tomorrow. His plane lands at 8pm and the game starts at 10.30pm so much depends on delays at the airport and the punctuality of public transport but he's not checking in any luggage and is confident he'll make it. His wife is an avid Man-U fan and had no desire to go with him; she even refuses to watch matches between the two sides in the same room as him at home.

I have long refused to watch Scotland Rugby matches with my lawyer. As another friend remarked " If anyone saw the way he behaves his clients would desert en masse - his partners first"

Silly to be so divisive at home about a game of football. It would have been more interesting for me if we had been playing a Russian team there. Let's hope our fans behave themselves.

Hi WL - I expect so, unless his wife arranged a victory parade around the garden on his return
