He came to the Barton's after a derby one year. My recollection is the 0-0 in 10/11. I noticed he preferred a fist bump to a handshake, protecting his money making fingers perhaps?

He's a regular in there. It took me years to realise why he fistbumps rather than shakes hands; one pissed idiot trying to prove his strength could mean one ruined career.

I know a professional guitarist who will only type using a pen/chopsticks etc. He's a gigging musician, so any problem with his fingers or forearms and he could be on JSA.

As a media professional who works from bed, I only view pornography on public transport and in busy food outlets for similar reasons.

As a fellow 'media professional' I hear that, bro! It's one long, painful jerk-off.

It's only painful if you forget the earplugs, brother!

There's something in the back of my head that I can't recall properly so others may know the story so does anyone remember a story that the late Eric Bristow refused to shake hands with fans citing the fear that one may have concealed broken glass in his?  Am I dreaming/raving?

Don't know about that but my mate recalls the tale of Eric Bristow appearing at his local 'working mans' club. Turned up and proceeded to play the locals. My mates friend was watching and as the games went on shouted 'Eric, looks like you've lost a bit of weight" to which Bristow smiled and said "yeah I have" to then get the reply "you've lost none of your f****g head!"

Needless to say he got a years ban.  ;D

All of which kind of puts into context that Tony Iommi chose to operate what he describes as a 'huge guillotine press' that he had never used before on his last working day before becoming a professional musician.

I see the special medal marking The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee comes with a claret and blue ribbon. Good work by Prince William!

Much as I've got a lot of respect for him, I can't help but think he went to more matches when he was younger with every interview. He certainly didn't see Clyde Best play for West Ham at Villa Park.
