You only sing when you're winning

I just had a phone call from my boyfriend leaving a football match. For months now we have been expecting his team (Chesterfield) to be relegated at the end of this season. Their performance has been, frankly, rubbish. The only way they could avoid going down was if they won today's match (against Luton) and if Tranmere Rovers simultaneously beat Grimsby.

Tranmere had a man sent off, and neither they nor Chestefield had scored. At 5pm Sky Sports announced that Chesterfield were going down.

But - the match had been two minutes late in starting. It wasn't due to finish until 5:02. Tranmere had rallied and defeated Grimsby, despite being a man down. And, in the 89th minute of the last match of the season, Chesterfield finally scored a goal, and beat Luton.

This is why you can't make good films about football. It only works because it is unscripted.
