Still, despite everything - as someone who’s felt relatively bitter towards PL over the years since he left - there are two things I noticed this weekend which have made me pause and consider .
First, he refused to say if he still holds a soft spot for us, when asked in the pre-match presser. His reply was quite telling - something like he wouldn’t be saying it in the circumstances.
And secondly, what he wore on the day. Plain black and no I*****h allegiance in sight.
After all the insults he’s hurled our way, from before he even left if the accounts are true, to losing it on the touch line yesterday, I believe he’s actually been respectful towards Norwich in a coded way.
