Beefy digs out all sorts of stuff but I've never seen it make the front page before. Granted most of it is naked ladies but even so.. ;)

Odd figures. How can Roman's cash not have changed at all? Did he spend EXACTLY the same amount as he earned? Doubtful, thinking of all the interest alone.

Glad we have a five year plan and aren't banking on strength of cash to win the premiership.

Very interesting that a couple of surprise names like sol how did he get up there?
07/11/2007 20:48:00
Good grief! Even the chap at watford has more dosh. Perhaps we should have a whip round for poor Randy. I would like to kick off with a Quid. Anyone else?

What phukwit voted for Kiraly in the keepers poll? Jimmy Rimmer should be no1 but was he not just over 25 years? Has to be Bozzy.

Dear Fear, where did you find this one? And mind if I copy it for our Forum?
