    I was out running. Personally I'd rather participate in sports than spectate..I watch the odd game but I'd much rather be someone who participates in sport. Made that decision many years ago.

    I even switched off Sky Sports because I was never in at the weekend to watch games. No doubt that's a bad attitude and I should be some sports 'fan' who is overweight and never actually competes...

    Anyway who do you support? Do you travel to see them much?

    It was. I supported City when they went down because I miss the big games. Football is about the big derbies, the rivalries. They're certainly back on again now.

    Re the Bellamy incident. It's been totally blown out of proportion. In the first game Giggs was it? was struck with missiles thrown from the crowd, nothing said, similar incident with Bellamy and it makes the news.

    And it was interesting to hear my Rag mates say that it felt like an epic champions league semi, not the Carling Cup.

    Good blog my McNulty in the BBC site:

    "United, however, still hold sway in this city. Empires carefully assembled over more than 20 years are not dismantled in months with a few waves of the game's mightiest chequebook. "

    Anyway Cook needs to pull his head in a bit, that 'when we beat United' speech was basically Fergie's team talk.

    Rooney was the difference. Bellamy, odious wee shite that he is, is playing some of the best football of his career right now. For all the big money signings he's probably the best player and overall was more impressive than Tevez for me.

    Brilliant. How do you compete?

    I've played for the best part of 20 years now run competitively, personally participation is more important than spectating.

    Traveling around the country to races costs, I couldn't do that and watch football week in week out. Simple choice for me. I made the decision at about 15-16 to just watch the odd game, brother used to bus over and watch a lot of games (although we are manc by birth we spent our teenage years in Sheffield), but I chose to play football and rugby instead each weekend.
