Well, I'm just glad that I don't live nor work in the city centre.
Not saying that there wasn't a brilliant carnival atmosphere when around 150,000 Rangers fans descended upon a sunny Manchester to watch their team in the Uefa Cup final. There was - it looked great, everyone seemed happy.
There was a little trouble as expected from a minority of fans who, understandably, were rather upset when one of the big screens that was supposed to be showing the match in Piccadilly Gardens broke down. Plus they had been drinking all day and probably were suffering from sunstroke. Anyway, riot police were involved, someone got stabbed, people got hurt.
The Scots went home the losers, and whilst people would have thought that the city of Manchester would have benefitted from the mid-week influx of so many tourists spending money in the vicinity, looking at the rubbish and damage left behind, I think the city was also a loser.
Supermarkets selling crates of beer were probably the overall winners.
