What a Lovely Day for It!
I`ve just returned from town, I`ve been down the Arndale Centre (no I won`t call it the Mall) and it was interesting to say the least.
Littered amongst the early shoppers were several dozen Royal Antwerp fans, here for the friendly fixture with Luton Town this afternoon.
Now I`d heard rumours that the Belgian club were intending to bring a fair few supporters, some say numbering close to 1000, but I`d taken it all with a pinch of salt.
But, on the evidence I`ve seen, I`m sure the numbers will build and, this afternoon, as the sun beats down on Kenilworth Road we`ll all be enjoying a friendly fixture that has a little more atmosphere than usual.
On a gorgeous summers` day, it would appear that football is back with a bang!
