After half a century covering the game in all its guises, with escalating wages and silly celebrations, it is League Two that provides the perfect swan song Leicester City 5, West Ham United 4: it was quite a match to kick off half a century on the highways and byways of football, writing more as a neutral fan than hard-nosed reporter.
