Papiss Cisse finally appeared in public wearing a Wonga shirt, so it's only right that we have a little fun.

As the transfers turn

We're at that neat part of transfer negotiations where one club is saying that the other can't agree personal terms while the other is saying transfer fee is the sticking point. Cute.

Coming Home Podcastle Episode 12.1 Is Here

Now that I've got myself settled across the country from where we last met, we've put together a podcast. It will be in your ears as soon as my internet allows it to be so.
