Tom's my son - he had an absolute belter of a day yesterday. Well before Bannan and getting his first ever match-worn shirt, he was excited enough about standing next to Tango - who asked Tom to look after his top and phone while he went to the loo at half-time. He came over to me after - "Dad, I looked after Tango's top and he gave me three quid and I shook his hand!" Then he was right in there with the players celebrating Fessi's goal - "Dad, I touched Sasso AND Fessi!". But Bazza's shirt topped the whole lot off.
There were two lads who were pointing to Tom at the end - one bloke in a dark blue puff jacket, I wish I'd got his name, but I thanked him from the heart for making Tom's day. And the other was Paul.
I'm fairly ambivalent to Tango generally, but I've had three or four experiences with him where I've seen that he has a heart of gold. Long may he continue to be a focal point for our away fans.
Here's Tom in Covent Garden as Hootie mentioned:
