Scarborough not being on live TV in FA Cup first round week a bad decision, says Scarborough fan - "southern bias" clearly explains picking of games in Hereford and Gloucestershire

Shaun Goater injures himself celebrating - puff! We all know the only acceptable celebratory injuries are from badly timed somersaults or accidental punches

David Kelly hangs up his boots - a story we've picked out both for the twofold human interest angle and because, in winning the newly summerised Cup, Derry City may well be the first club to qualify for Europe next season

From the Observer's racism in football postbag special:
What do you expect from the moronic types who go to football matches - good manners? It's a game played by morons for (mainly) morons who have no sense of sportsmanship, mocking players' errors, throwing all sorts of insults (so why not include racial taunts?). I say kick football out of football - turn all football grounds into prisons, preferably with all the supporters and the players included.
Birmingham give Norwich a load of money - and that presumably has helped in their good start to the first division season. Hardly fair, is it?
Sorry, Boscombe On The Web, but didn't we do this in our errata mailout yesterday?

The Cones Hotline no longer exists - great picture caption too
Yes, we should be more up to date with this if we're going to advertise it constantly, shouldn't we?
38,000 seater stadium perfect for side with 11,000 season ticket holders : thanks to Jon 'Ormondroyd' Hall for pointing out that until this afternoon the official Fulham website claimed that Langham was "an avid football fan and supporter of Hibernian". The latter bit was taken off, until the club decided that the fans should know anyway. And now, he's "an avid football fan and avid football fan and supporter of Hibernian". Twice the fan the old Craven Cottage-ites were, then!

Reserve game kicking off early shows up "the shambolic way so-called professional football is run in this country", apparently
TribalFootball excels itself - yes, he's virtually signed, sealed and delivered to Arsenal after a comment like that, isn't he?
Ipswich claim 'a hoaxer' may have led to Ronnie Moore link, although we understand Graham Souness now wants to take Moore on as a housekeeper

It's a rainy night in Georgia - well, a dark one at least.

"Is there anything to be said for saying another Mass?" - oddly, Higuita neglected this course of action over the whole kidnapping thing
Howard Wilkinson bans mobile phones - next week, all club sponsored cars have to have a man walking in front with a red flag

Crozier fights the power - we particularly like how they have to confirm they've received the much-publicised document detailing the changes.
He's Gabby Logan's dad, y'know : in chiefly for the quote about Shefki Kuqi seven paragraphs down
Dear God, no : do you reckon Des actually came up with any of his quote?
Who was that masked man? : look, Sava, if you have to explain your carefully prepared celebrations, don't bother. That said, Alan Shearer's "very poor, that" adjugement needs revoking.

Ronaldo in Real squad - did anyone else notice that Sky Sports News on Thursday morning would only give out the Real scorers against AEK Athens?

AFC Wimbledon on your PC - just wait until Premium TV find out...

Glenn Roeder takes diplomacy to new levels - if West Ham don't want him, John Major should sign him up immediately
Ananova know their audience - hold on, Chris Kiwomya?
Oh look, it's the in no way tedious 'sex before games' discussion - but hold on, sex *during* games? Were we Football 365, the rest of this page would be taken up with Dwight Yorke jokes.

Now, *this* is an own goal - Rotherham were leading Wolves 4-3 in the 120th minute of last night's Worthington Cup game. Enter Rob Scott, exit dignity. (ZIPped RealVideo)
We thought Jason Wilcox was dead - BBCi seems surprised that top players would rather play in the first team than the reserves
"Hey, UEFA, why don't you introduce video replays for all those contentious goals?"
"Get rid of video evidence appeals for red cards, you say? What a good idea!"

We're getting towards reviewing Vinnie's Football Adverts, but in the meantime, here's a picture of Gary Bloom.
