Between the Lines

"Of all unimportant subjects, football is the most important" – Pope John Paul II

To me, fair friend, you never can be old

Six months ago I was convinced that Ryan Giggs would play a minor part this season, and then retire gracefully. Instead he now looks a better player than for several years, a remarkable achievement at his age, and a strong candidate for our player-of-the-season. Today the official website announced that Giggs has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him at Old Trafford until June 2010, just a few months short of his 37th birthday.

I’m delighted that I was wrong.

Edit: You can find a brilliant piece about Giggs’ greatest goals here.
