"Look how much my Dad can drink in one go!"

Olympiacos scored in the 119th minute away at the Emirates to knock Arsenal out of the Europa League on away goals last night. Anyone who was sitting near Andy H when this happened has my profound sympathy.

How long ago was it that the family came round to dinner at mine and he listened to the end of an Arsenal away game on the radio with such manic, visceral concentration that I thought he was pulling my leg? As I recall our kids were still in the early years of primary school so it must be more than a decade.
