You say Shrewsbury, Eden Hazard says Strawberry

How do you pronounce Shrewsbury? Should it be, as some people maintain, Shrewsbury? Or should it be Shrewsbury?

I once sat at the front of the bus into the town from Bishop's Castle and noticed that half the passengers asked for Shrewsbury and half asked for Shrewsbury. So there may be no right answer.

The other evening the Chelsea footballer Eden Hazard cut through this debate by calling the town Strawberry.

It was a stroke of genius. I really think it is the best thing he has done since he kicked that ballboy at Swansea.
