From the unstinting media monitor...

... that previously exposed such egregious, frankly quite-nation-shakingly-scandalous BBC howlers as this and this, my invigilating eyes have blearily isolated yet another gaping hole in Auntie's bloomers...
Unless, that is, I've judged Robbie Savage wrongly all these years.
I, like many, may have written him off as a ridiculously over-indulged, attention-seeking, snidey, sneaky, journeyman of an irritant.
But, admittedly, this must have taken some talent to pull off...

I always knew he was a cheat...
I'm off to buy my barca shirt later this week. Are you getting one?

Appreciate the sentiment, but, er, no...!
Found all the Barca stuff faintly embarrassing during an otherwise-immense Sunday with the Spurs...
Enjoy, though...!
But I won't be buying a Man City shirt this Thursday, either...
Besides, if you buy a Barca shirt, isn't that putting money into the pockets of Nike...?
And we all know who else they sponsor, don't we...?
Why not go the whole hog and volunteer to do a bit of plumbing at the new Emirates stadium, eh...? ;)

I got myself a nifty Barca shirt, shorts and scarf set for the princely sum of 50RMB (and almost certainly not a penny to Nike...) when they visited China to play Shanghai International in 2004, in one of the most unfriendly friendlies I've ever seen - three players sent off, one stretchered off... and a very fat close season Henrik Larsson doing nothing very much at all...

... and given the money in it, doing a bit of plumbing would be a great way of 1) earning piles of cash 2) overcharging for the work in a Friday-Night-Armistice-style attempted-forced-bankruptcy...
