The wind made things very difficult - there was one particular high ball that made me feel as though I was playing "Spot the Ball", as I could only watch where the players were looking to track its movement until it reappeared. The pitch wasn't exactly in its prime either - among other things there was a big hollow, where at least a square foot of turf had disappeared, just over the nearside touchline. Both these are bound to have affected performance today. Nonetheless, Foran's competitive managerial record is better than either Rodgers or Lennon.
What was Finnie using at free kicks? I could see him spraying something, but never once saw any marks on the ground. I did wonder if he'd left the dressing room in a rush, and picked up his can of Lynx by mistake, instead of his shaving foam.
Was anyone paying full attention to the game while the ball boy desperately tried to recover the ball that went up the grass bank? Judging by the crowd noises at every failure, attention was divided!
