Sybil Roscoe: (after We Are The Champions extract played) I suppose with that song you sort of - football chant worldwide now, isn't it, that song?
Roger: Yes um, I think, yes, it's quite amazing. I heard it at the end of World Cup (Serry's note: 1998, Brasil-France), the final as well, which was great actually (laughs).
Sybil Roscoe: Roger, you gave this ten grand to the Independent Supporters Association at Manchester United. Why? What was your thinking?
Roger: (laughs) Yes - God I'm never gonna hear the end of this am I?
Sybil Roscoe: No.
Roger: My thinking was really, I was driving in the car er and I heard the guy from the Unofficial Supporters' Club talking, saying that we all need is J10,000 to get organised, cos, you know, we don't have it - and I just thought well that's you, you know, I thought I was quite shocked and surprised and fairly outraged when I heard about the bid - you know - I don't personally think it's the right thing. Um and I thought, well I can sort of help you.
Sybil Roscoe: Some people would say though, you know, people who like watching football on Sky and...
Sybil Roscoe: ...like reading the Sun newspaper - well might say "What are you on about, you know?"
Roger: Yeah - but they didn't used to have to pay to watch the football. I mean I couldn't see England play Sweden the other night, because it was on SkySports2 and er you had to have that and you had to pay - and er I think that's wrong.
Sybil Roscoe: Are you a MU supporter?
Roger: No I'm not personally. No, my my son, my son is a fanatical supporter. Um - no, no I'm not, no.
Sybil Roscoe: And was it him?
Roger: But I think they're a great club and I love watching them play. Yeah.
Sybil Roscoe: Who do you support?
Roger: Um - I'm not really even mad football supporter - I'd say if anybody West Ham if anybody probably... These days footballers have to be such incredible athletes, don't they? I mean just seeing how fast they run and how long they run, watching the World Cup, I just can't believe that somebody can...
Sybil Roscoe: Or how much football they play
Roger: Yeah, yeah.
Sybil Roscoe: It's a lot isn't it.
Roger: Yeah - they do play a lot.
