I love all sorts of sport. Like many I guess, my first passion is football.
I been a football fan for as long as I can remember - following the fortunes of both Manchester United and England through the highs and lows. Despite all the recent domestic success that United have enjoyed - one Pemier League title after another, and obviously the recent Champions League triumph over Chelsea, the greatest match I can remember was the 1984 Cup Winners' Cup Quarter Final 2nd Leg 3-0 win over Barcelona - and Bryan Robson showed us the player we all knew he was but, largely because of injury, never really got a chance to show in an England shirt.
I love getting involved in the debates: offside, sinbins, purple cards, Bosman and player power, foreign investment in domestic clubs.
Tennis is my second sport. That is thanks to Boris Becker and Steffi Graf. Along came Tim Henman and he danced on the edge of Wimbledon success, I can only watch in awe at the devastating skill of Federer, Nadal, the Williams sisters, Henin, and Ivanovic.
It's fast becoming a hot topic... let me know what you think.
