Bitter and (claret and) blue

You may or may not have been following the debate about Glenn Roeder's actions on Sunday which has been taking place below and over at Footblog. Just to recap, Roeder was vilified by the West Ham fans for having the nerve to acknowledge the vocal support he was given by the travelling fans at Upton Park.

Today, talking to the Mirror, Roeder has revealed some of the abuse that was levelled at him by a minority of those around the dugout. If you're a Hammers fan I imagine it makes for very unpleasant reading - but not as unpleasant as it must have been to be the subject of taunts about cancer. Whatever failings Roeder might or might not have had at West Ham, nothing could have been so bad as to have deserved that.
