Mr Monkey was just a little annoyed at the Barnet team, who are known in some circles as the Bees. Their proper kit is supposed to be black and orange, but, just for one match, they were playing in black and violet. This was apparently for historical reasons, but Mr Monkey would have prefered them to wear orange. It was a game of two halves which was all about putting the ball in the back of the net, and it ended with a 4-1 victory to United. Even though no fat lady came on to sing, Mr Monkey scampered to the exits to catch a train home.
