*Match Of The Day producers admit that they are searching "for more depth and gravitas in our football analysis." Alan Shearer is replaced by Tess Daly.

*The Mirror's Ollie Holt, emboldened by his successful wearing of an Alice band, appears on Sunday Supplement dressed as Judy Garland in The Wizard Of Oz.

*It is revealed Gary Lineker's tan is actually the stain smugness leaves on your skin.

*The Government hires Gary Neville to tell them what they're doing wrong by using a massive iPad. Gary tells them. Everything gets better immediately, although there is some unpleasantness when Gary insists instead of a fee that "our Philip is made Home Secretary".

*Fleet Street declares Harry Redknapp to be a living god and begins a collective campaign to have a statue of him leaning out a car window placed in every school.

*ITV2 sign Robbie Savage for a fly-on-the-wall reality show called 'Robbie - My Life'. Peter Andre sniffs "These pointless minor celebrities are getting out of hand."

*Following news that dogs can be trained to drive cars, ITV's Champions League coverage is presented by a Bulldog called Adrian. No-one notices the difference.

*A woman is found attempting to break into a BBC studio with the aim of offering an opinion on televised men's football. Fortunately, she is chased out of the studio by ex-professionals and disaster is averted.

*The BBC discovers that administering electric shocks to pork sausages creates a more vibrant and interesting pundit than Kevin Davies.

*Alan Green leaves the BBC in order to work at Dignitas in Switzerland. "I wasn't too sure I had made the right choice coming here," says one terminally ill patient. "But after listening to the unbroken misery and pain that Alan relayed during that Southampton v Fulham match, I know that there really is no reason to carry on living."

*Graeme Souness is sacked from Sky's Champions League coverage after insisting: "Kicking players you don't like in the head should be enshrined in European Human Rights legislation."

*Jamie Redknapp bids to broaden his broadcasting career when CBBC bosses admit "our viewers found his analysis of In The Night Garden to be a bit one-dimensional'.

*Alan Hansen finally breaks his silence on Chinese history. "The Great Chinese Famine starting in the 1959-1960 season? At least 20 million dead? Terrible. Not a good system at all."

*Andy Townsend's lack of football knowledge becomes so vast it acquires its own gravitational pull.

*Roy Keane's fury at Adrian Chiles and Gareth Southgate becomes so intense it materializes in human form. The resulting human form looks exactly like Roy Keane.

*Richard Keys and Andy Gray discovered living on a council tip in Esher, conducting interviews with tramps on an abandoned Draylon sofa.

Carroll accuses Rodgers

P

Rodgers: I wanted to keep Downing

T

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
