Taking sides

  • Comment

Lord Foster himself was spotted joining the prawn sandwich-munching corporate guests at the new Wembley final. Nattily attired all in black, Normski was taking great pleasure in showing the other spectators around his newly opened arena. The BBC’s Adrian Chiles was one such awe-struck visitor, reacting with child-like wonder when our Norman pointed out the ranks of urinals and the arch ‘so big you could drive a cross-Channel train through it. But the previously over-effusive Foster was left scrabbling for answers when another BBC correspondent popped the question that Norman must have been dreading: who was he going to support in the big game; Manchester United or Chelsea? ‘Well,’ he started, ‘I was born in Manchester but I live in Chelsea. So really I've got a foot in both camps.’ Come on Normski! Take a punt on one of them… That’s just fence-sitting of the top order.
