You had to respect the humanitarian in Clive Tyldesley on Saturday evening that had him fret over the posh seating arrangements at Wembley. With Manchester United's treble dream beginning to curdle, the poor chap sitting directly in front of Alex Ferguson looked in dire need of ear-plugs and a back-guard.
The camera caught a glimpse of him with his face in his hands, prompting Tyldesley to sigh that such proximity to the United boss had surely made for "a difficult afternoon."
No doubt, he went straight home after, put on some Verdi and vowed to ring-fence all future Saturdays for lawn work and creosoting the garden furniture.
