Own goal

I read with interest that Chris Woodhead wanted to give Michael Barber an Arsenal season ticket for Christmas (TES, December 20).

Quite aside from underlining how out of touch Woodhead is with the real world - you can't just get a season ticket for Arsenal, you have to prove you are seriously boring and have lots of money first - it also suggests that Mr Woodhead is an Arsenal fan.

This would explain a great deal.
