Declan Lynch: 'Poor ould Jose, tormented by the talent of youth'


The definitive line about the grave situation at Old Trafford came last week in a tweet from the eminent gastroenterologist Dr Anthony O'Connor - who described a school carol service which he attended.

The children were all obliged to wear red, which gave O'Connor an insight into the football demographics of Ireland and probably of the world in general at this time. He noted that roughly 80pc of the kids in fifth and sixth class wore Manchester United shirts, with a few Liverpool and Arsenal. The third and fourth classes broke 50/50 between United and Liverpool. The first and second classes were 90pc Liverpool, with one United.
