Yesterday we had some new carpets fitted, here in sunny BSE. The carpet fitters were brothers over from Ipswich. The younger one, a Town fan, told me his brother went to school with Macauley Bonne. I mentioned this to the older brother, who isn’t much of a footie man, and he confirmed it, and said he was also friends with Bonne’s girlfriend. Bonne was, he said, a very nice lad, totally dedicated to his football, and a very keen Town fan.
The coincidence? The older carpet fitter’s first name is Macauley.
