Sweet FA

London Underground Tube Diary - Going Underground's Blog There is always something to smile about, even when there is internal sadness. Yesterday I loved the picture on the back of the Times of Ron Greenwood carrying the FA cup home on the tube. Today, London Underground blogger Annie Mole (sic) has posted the picture and a nice story about it. If you don't know who Ron Greenwood was (he died the other day, hence the tributes) , he used to have the most important job in England, more important by far than the Prime Minster, the Queen or the Archbishop of Canterbury. Yes, England's soccer team manager. (Since then we have had a turnip and a swede. Hope we can pick a more productive vegetable next time.)
