    The last team outside the “Big Four” to win a major trophy besides the league cup was Everton winning the FA Cup in 1996.

    My New Year’s wish is for Sunderland not to get relegated.

    My New Years wish would be for Danny Baker and Danny Kelly to restart their Podcast.

    Nice top banner, by the way.

    Two absolutely spot on points – your last one about only the captain questioning the referee (and perhaps the referees using the captains to try and convey his messages and warnings to their sides, as in rugby)…

    …and your first one about PROPER coverage of the European Championship. For too long, there’s been lazy television (and radio) coverage of major tournaments, the temptation being to fill endless hours boring everyone with crappy interviews and articles on “the latest from the England Camp”. For once, instead of this pointless drive (yes, TalkSport, that’s you) towards a meaningless home international tournament, let’s see one of these media take a rare opportunity to provide some proper football journalism and coverage.

    Alpaca wool makes for the most amazingly warm pull-overs
    It’s quite coarse, but perfect for wearing under a poncho whilst watching winter matches whilst the sea breeze encroaches upon the south coast stadia

    1. It’ll get a better profile than the wimmin’s world cup, but the commentary will be shoddy
    2. Yes
    3. I’m under the 4th hand impression the Milan side looks very steady at all times,
    perfect for the general tedium of the champions league. As I don’t have sky I watch it regularly, and on the whole it’s dire.
    Considering the value of the players on display, it’s shit telly
    4, Well, obviously. The thing in his favour is that he’s been with his missus for years, and seems to be a devout catholic
    Other than ignoring the press completely, I suspect he’ll have no trouble keeping his nose clean
    5, Surely compared to school boy tackles of the 1970s and the 1st division players that inspired them, they’re barely tickles these days

    Are you serious about Milan? Please tell me you aren’t so I can take your other writings seriously.
