The first Monday Night Football of the season was certainly not short on banter, or even the occasional piece of scousist humour.

The work of a football commentator can be a varied bag. When it's bad it can numb the very soul.

I was immensely tickled to read about some disturbances at a recent Thailand Premier League game between TOT and Bangkok Glass. Tickled because these are two of the corporate clubs that litter the football landscape in the country and, for me at least, I find it hard to get excited about a club that is just an extension of a corporate entity.

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Spurs kit launch this past Monday which took place at the trendy Village Underground in Shoreditch. It was an incredible day weather-wise and although the guy I saw as soon as I stepped off the over ground wearing bright red chino shorts with a blazer made me realise I was nowhere near cool enough for EC2, I still enjoyed my lemon green tea with lychees on the roof in the sun.

There is not much "friendly" banter in South America, where tempers swell. And as we know in Europe, banter can sometimes go overboard, but fortunately it is mostly a thing where one teases your coming opponents for being useless drunks and crybabies before a match.
