I couldn't miss Alan Shearer's testimonial match, I went to that. But? no? oh? it was? everybody, well I'm saying everybody? the part where we were sitting was where I nor? it was more or less near enough to where I was normally sitting when I had my season ticket. And the men? well, there weren't any women round near me but the men? there were some elderly men and young men, Come on hinny, get along! Don't worry, take your time! I mean, they were really helpful, you know. I didn't feel as though I was imposing on anybody you know. An old woman walking with a stick.
Q. Did you enjoy the match?
Oh, I did. I wouldn't have missed it for anything.
