Agree absolutely on both counts. I'm retired now but if I put my dusty old professional hat on, I would be screaming caution before you begin to label or condemn this young man. (Given what was said about his father, and if true, I might have begun by exploring that relationship.)
Took me back all those years to the greatest goal ever scored - Greavsie against Leicester. I was one of the privileged few that stood for maybe three or four minutes applauding it. Never witnessed that sort of reaction since - until this morning.
