I have pointed out here before that I am the World’s worst football fan. Appropriately, I “support” the “worst” team in the Premiership. They aren’t simply bad in a finishing-close-to-the-bottom-of-the-table-heavily-in-debt way. They are bad in a chronically-underperforming-and-dull-to-watch-yet-embarrassingly-in-credit way.

I only mention this to point out that the day before yesterday (my terrible supporting consists of half-heartedly checking the result of their last game some time during the week it took place) Villa held the once-mighty Liverpool to a draw at Villa’s own home ground. This means that, not only are AVFC still reassuringly awful, but Liverpool are now officially in decline too. At least the game was interesting. Apparently.
