Heh - nice one, JJ, I knew I was right to have faith where others mocked...!

Thanks, Phil Neville too, deftly done...

What is this I hear about a new blog you've created at 360 Voice?

Tell us more, please!

A better player would have got more than Jenas though and so would the team, only thing reduced would be my blood pressure ;¬)

I'm sure every team has a midfielder they love to hate - stand up Leon Osman, mercurial figure and ultimate supporter divider. He's too lightweight! He's got no pace! What a ball! What a goal! Flicks between a world beater and a starved panel beater. Sadly mostly the latter this year.

thatinkjar: That's my kind of blog, one that posts by itself!

The words "mercurial" and "panel beater" were used on Soccer Saturday last weekend. Coincidence? I think not!

Incidentally - while I'm all for pissing on the bonfire that is Andriy Shevchenko's confidence... until you or I score five Premiership goals or more, I suggest we adopt a more caring attitude for our Ukrainian guest. It can't be easy for the lad.

Oh! And, if you copy and paste something from another web site, we in this industry call that a "quote". And, when you "quote" someone, you normally indent the text and use a couple of quotation marks. Honestly.

Buy Gears! Oh, wait, you already did. Buy Theme Park DS. Woo.

Are Jeff Stelling and the boys pilfering my lines again?

I indented the list, and linked to the source. I couldn't indent the whole thing without it looking odd. Anyway, what is this blogging advice from the blogging guru without a blog about?!
