The Fooball Loving Girl's Guide To The Art Of Conversation

Sitting next to me on the settee, watching Inter Milan vs Barcelona, My Lover said;

"Course, you know that Fergie and Mourhino are like that. It's in Fergie's gift to choose who should follow him. They are close friends. Everyone's talking about it"

"That would be everyone on Talk Sport would it?", I asked, raising an eyebrow. "That would be Mike Parry and the gang - The Sun on the radio".

"Not just them - I heard some dude pundit say it", retorted My Lover.

Then quickly changing the subject, he started a discussion about the scandal that is our national stadium.

We talked about how the business model was flawed, not taking sufficient account of the quality issues in relation to the pitch. We agreed that it is an embarrassment that may seriously threaten our reputation as a footballing nation capable of hosting a World Cup.

And all within a 10 minute window.

Who said the art of conversation is dead?
