Quote of the week…

There was a football match in Old Trafford last night, but it comes a poor third in Daniel Taylor’s eulogy to George Best and minor hatchett job on the new owners for not turning up to what sounded like a memorable night. It contains the quote of the week on one of the momentoes left outside the ground:

“Shevchenko, £50m. Ronaldinho, £50m. George Best, priceless. RIP.”
