Good morning and eyes down for a full house.
I quite like the phrase, you couldn’t make it up. But this morning’s Sunday Mirror headline is more proof were it ever needed that in actual fact, you can. According to the Mirror’s Paul Smith discreet enquiries made by the Etihad mob about the boy Bale were greeted with a blunt price tag of £150M.
Let me just say, even running this two bob operation I get people telling me ‘stuff’ on a regular basis. Sometimes it pans out, sometimes it does not. That’s show business. But I do try and at least give each piece of information some degree of analysis. £150m? The Mirror need to make it a sackable offence in 2012 to upload articles from public houses.
Today is incredibly exciting. Of course we play every cad at least twice a season, but never before in living memory has the outcome stood to influence our fight for the title. There, I said it.

Our lot know what’s required. Or at least I hope to God they do. A terrifying article in the Telegraph where the Welsh wizard reiterates his cunning plan to not play on the wing more and more.
Oh yes. And if TK Maxx sold people, they’d sell Shaun Custis.
