Jingle Bells...

...oh what fun, it is to see, the Villa win away OH !

All right, so Middlesborough aren't playing very well at the moment, but that's still a good result in anybody's book. Haven't read the details or seen the highlights yet, but as Luke Moore scored a hat-trick and Kevin Phillips got the other, it sounds like O'Leary actually had the balls to drop his big signing (Baros), who has been awful in the last few games. I never thought he had it in him.

I've always thought Luke Moore had the ability, but until now he's always looked to lack confidence at the highest level. Having scored twice against Chelsea this season, and now bagged his first senior hat-trick, perhaps this will be the launching pad to greater things for young Luke. I sure hope so - nothing better than seeing local lads come through the ranks and go on to great things. Up and down week for the Moore family though, with big brother Stefan no longer wanted by QPR. I really thought he'd do well in the Championship - while he was never as talented as Luke, he's still quick and intelligent. Ian Holloway said similar things about HIS confidence - if he can work out the mental part of his game, he's still young enough to make a name for himself somewhere.

Blimey, you are profilic. Saw the rugby. Thought Dallaglio looked peerless. Haven't seen any footy yet but will keep an eye out for Bolton-Wigan. Tomorrow, by the way, is the East Anglian derby..The Old Farm, they call it.

Tends to go in phases for me - today is the first day of a well-deserved four day weekend, so I'm relatively chilled out and sociable.

P.S. Profilic ? Is that a journo gag or just a great typo ?

No need to apologise, that's funny. Someone else do your subbing for you ? ;-)

you are a tease. i cringe whenever i read telegraph watch on worstall...espec when it features one of the stories i handled. think of what we do as a rough draft of history - very rough sometimes.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I figured you had to be Telegraph, although I don't think you've ever explicitly said so. Do you ever run into old Mastermind in the Archive ?
