    No web link as yet
    It was good fun listening to them corpse on the Today program. They were doing the newspapers and covering the Telegraph report on Shitterton. Sadly they don't have that excerpt as a sound bite, but it is at about 1:45 in the full running order if someone is really bored.

    They would if they saw him. My vague memory is of wondering why QPR didn't just make him stand in front of the goal and act as a wall.

    Or German footballer Stephan Kuntz. I remember a clasic piece of commentary that went something like ' And here come the Germans - Kuntz'. If it wasn't David Coleman it should have been.

    Have to hand it to them; come up with an idea guaranteed to wind-up easily excitable tabloid journalists = lots of lovely free publicity.

    I've never wanted a tattoo, but you know...
