There are facts, and there are opinions. Here are the facts:<br />
<br />
– Jonathan Woodgate transfered from Newcastle to Real Madrid in 2004, for �13.4m.<br />
– He was injured. He stayed injured for a long time.<br />
– After a year of inactivity, he made his <a href=””>La Liga debut for Real last night</a>.<br />
– He scored an own goal, and was sent off for a second bookable offence after 65 minutes.<br />
<br />
Here’s Jonathan’s take on events:<br />
<br />
“It was not the best start in the world.”<br />
No, no it wasn’t. It’s pretty fucking awful. I would call that the worst start you could imagine.<br />
<br />
“I want to thank the public, who were brilliant when I was walking off. They were all clapping and cheering.”<br />
Hmm. Now I know “Woody” isn’t an intellectual, but did it not cross his mind that the crowd were possibly being sarcastic? No? Not a chance? They were pleased with his performance, were they? Were they?
