You will probably have noticed that I’m not a great sports fan. I enjoy cricket and follow test matches avidly (Test Match Special is one of the best sports programmes going, mainly because they spend most of the time talking about anything other than cricket) and watch the motor racing (unfashionably, I think that Michael Schumacher actually is the best driver – it isn’t cool to say that – a bit like saying that you support Manchester United really). But football leaves me mostly cold. However, I’ve long followed the fortunes of Brighton and Hove Albion, and today the won promotion to Division Two – hurrah! Seeeeaaaaaguuuullls! Seeeeeeaaaaguuuulllls!!!
