Barry Glendenning on Losing as Entertainment

The latest Guardian Fottball Weekly lacks Jimbo, but Jimbo’s foil, Barry (“buzz-kill“) Glendenning had one of his best lines. Sachin Nkrani was talking about how miserable it must be for Sunderland fans to be always losing, and asks Barry if it wouldn’t actually be preferable to be relegated, and spend next season actually winning some games in the Championship:

Nakrani: If you keep losing every week… it must be bloody miserable

Glendenning: It is kind of entertaining, to be honest.

Classic Barry— the football fan who enjoys seeing his own team lose.
