Well it seems the verbal amusement arcade that is Ian Holloway is up for the Wolves job and judging by some of the women i've seen heading out of Flares on a Saturday night in Wolverhampton - he might be OK.

"To put it in gentleman's terms if you've been out for a night and you're looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they're good looking and some weeks they're not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren't the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much lets have a coffee"

Brazillian legend Socrates is set to play for Yorkshire non-league side Garforth Town tomorrow. The 50 year old '82 and '86 World Cup veteran is poised to line up in the North East Counties League against the mighty Tadcaster Albion (Come on you Tadcaster!).

Talking of philisophy - Has anyone seen the Mark Steel lectures? Marvellous stuff indeed, especially last weeks punch up between Di Vinci and Michelangelo.

Wednesday's International Friendly was decidedly unfriendly, and that was just Gary Neville's challenges. Staging the match at the home of Real Madrid's band of loveable fascists the ultras, probably wasn't the best idea, but at least someone said sorry eh.
