Feline Football

Last night’s Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur game became an internet sensation with over 40,000 followers on a twitter account created after the game. The reason for this was not an unbelievable goal, controversial red card or a fight between players, but was down to a pitch invasion. From a cat.

Sam the cat, now known on twitter as @AnfieldCat ran onto the pitch eleven minutes into the game , had a little potter about and was seemingly unwilling to leave until a steward caught up with him. Sadly, of all the time I have endured watching football nothing like this has ever happened. This has restored my faith that it has the potential to be exciting; next time I might watch with a little more than feigned interest…

“He’s not leaving, that’s for sure”
