re: the thought for the day, I thought it was a good idea, especially the fact they instruct you to put air holes in. However I just banged into the door and fell down my stairs. Stupid ***** should have also advised to put spaces for the eyes.

With Moore doing so well, is it not also time to give Agbonlahor and chance to play top flight football? The kids a dream, scores more goals than Rooney visits brothels.

An awful lot of praise heaping going on. I reckon Dennis Bergkamp must be our scout. Preston! Seriously, have our scouts ever left the country? Well, they've made it to Belgium, which is a start i suppose...
