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

*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.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
