Just been having a laugh at Sky news showing Delia Smith losing it with the football fans. Most unladylike - I'll never view her cookery programmes in the same light - she's always so sedate and ladylike on them

I saw it on our local news and also had a bit of a giggle. She looked completely mad, didn't she?

I live in Norwich and the local rag has an exclusive interview with her today (woopie doo!) -she catagorically denies she was pi$$ed. She only drinks mineral water!! Apparently a lot of the fans think she's crackers.

I saw it but am really dim cos I didn't get what she meant by no 12 or 13 or whatever

Did she mean there as no support for the team

Am really dim but did think she was drunk too

Apparently the City fans were chanting "There's only one Jamie Oliver" but I don't know if that was before or after The Incident.

(I love witty football chants )

Missed all this but cannot imagine St Delia drunk...anyone care to tell me what happened?

Here you are, Marina!

That photo is brill

I didn't realise it was at half time now I understand

that does not look good. Relieved we have no such celebrity intervention at Charlton!

It is sweet that she is so involved. And to go from 2-0 up to 2-2 is infuriating. (And then to lose 2-3 even worse.)

Are you a Charlton fan, Marina? DH went to one match down there - he works for allsports who are their sponsors (as you may have noticed!) so he can have free tickets if he wants. (Has to look smart and behave though, unlike his normal matchday behaviour of course )

I am indeed. For my sins. Their training ground is just down the road and is sometimes used by England, such is its calibre
I think Alan is one of the UK's best managers. That team would not be where they are without him...and the club has been so good on discouraging racism in football (hot potato in SE London).
All Charlton fans are well-behaved and smart JanH!

Latest rumours circulating Norwich-her rant is going to be made into a ring-tone. The local paper has already made car stickers with "Lets be 'aving you" on them.....
