In a bid to lighten the tone, but not make light of the situation my ex-wife, the FA, looked at me like filth. So do not take it to heart.
The Police do get it wrong - as the Police Community Liaison resource found out in Bristol this week, he was Tasered by the the local constabulary....
So expect the worst & plan for it. You will then be well prepared for the surprises along the route. Not all of them will be nasty.
You are not alone.
