The thing is, they caught me at a low point and I reacted to the taunt in the invite about seeing a winning team. So, I will be going and I will do a good impression of cheering on Roma on the basis that I have been to the Olympic Stadium in Rome (albeit to see Lazio) and that will serve them right. I have been told to be there for 6pm as there is a buffet and we have "Club" seats. This should be interesting and will hopefully give me plenty of ammunition to throw at the prawn sandwich brigade.
On a more serious note, it will be interesting to watch live Premier League-quality football again after a two year absence. I will, of course, want to see the Arse win to increase the chances of a British side winning it again. They haven't been too hot of late and the 0-0 draw with Sunderland on Saturday was hardly awe-inspiring.
