It would take a pretty incredible moment to overshadow watching your team batter one of the European giants and second best team in Italy, AC Milan, 4-0 on the night and 7-2 on aggregate.
Yet somehow, the topic of conversation for most as they left the ground was whether they saw David Beckham put on the green and gold scarf as he left the pitch.
On BBC 606 on the way home last night, a man who had written some book on Beckham claimed that Beckham didn’t understand the significance of wearing the scarf. Whilst it is clear Beckham isn’t the sharpest tool, there is no way he could have misunderstood the message that action brought.
Good on you, David.
