For a football fan—or should we, say football club fan to be precise—names matter. A Man United follower won’t ever confuse Giggs with Drogba. However, that allegiance may well be kept aside when it comes to merchandise for cricket-loving aam janta. To them, the stuff is just that—merchandise, nothing more. Which is actually quite a thought-provoker. After all, football club  adherents in Bombay can’t even locate the cities their favourite clubs are based in, on a map. Whatever be the argument, it’s amusing to come across a commuter on the Harbour Line wearing a jacket sporting Manchester United while carrying a Chelsea-painted satchel. Ignorance is bliss at times, isn’t it?
