Not quite on the ball

25th October 2013 at 01:00

I interpret from Ed Dorrell's editorial ("You know best - don't let students tell you otherwise", 18 October) that he is a fan of Brentford Football Club, as he mentions a desire to be able to "eulogise" about the team's 1996-97 performance, if only he were given complete freedom by the editor. I'm sorry to say that the real lesson for Brentford that season came from my own team, Crewe Alexandra Football Club. We really gave Brentford an education at Wembley in the Second Division play-off final, winning 1-0 to gain promotion. Sorry, Ed, you've just shown the limitations of free journalism.
