It was a story that could have been taken straight from the script of a Hollywood movie. There was no glory, no glittering trophy or hero as such, but amid the utter devastation and suffering wrought by Germany’s brutal siege of Leningrad during World War Two, a football match took place. For its war-weary people, Dinamo Leningrad versus Nevsky Zavod was not just an allegory of resistance, but a defiant gesture that their city would not surrender.

It Was a Bad Weekend For…The title raceWhile Alex Ferguson bemoaned the fact that Manchester City’s 2-0 defeat to Everton hours before his side faced managerless Reading at Old Trafford “took the edge off” his side’s performance, the Scot can’t have had many better days this season than he did on Saturday.
