Yeah sure, there’s a lot more sordid news concerning footballers doing the rounds today, but in an antidote to all the sleaze and criminality, we bring you an inspirational tale of dedication and mental strength.

Irish youngster Shane Duffy Tweeted today that he had passed his driving theory test, and good luck to him. However, the fact that the Everton only managed to make the grade after 11 attempts doesn’t bode well for his practical, does it? Indeed, it could be sometimes ’til he’s cruising the streets of Liverpool in an over-sized armour-plated Range Rover or some such footballery motor. Here’s the celebratory Tweet…

Catalan-leaning Spanish rag SPORT had to subtly alter their front cover this morning due to a slight issue with the juxtaposition of Carles Puyol’s thrusting crotch and Xavi’s gaping mouth in the photo used on their first run.

Before und after…

Just in case you missed it, Ronaldo (the 'proper'/fat/fenomeno one) was in town for the Olympic draw on Tuesday, and afterwards he sat down with a group of journalists to offer his thoughts on the summer jamboree.

Apart from (according to the hacks present) the big man clearly having no idea who Gareth Bale was, he was asked which young English players he thought were top notch.

"Beckham and Lampard and the whole Man United team...Michael Owen," quoth he.

Can anyone think of a possible name for this generation of golden young bucks?

From the transfer rumours on The Guardian Website:

'Newly-promoted Thames Valley mini-power Reading are "planning a £38m double swoop" for Wilfried Zaha and Nathaniel Clyne of Crystal Palace. The beefy schemer Zaha is valued at £6m. Clyne, who is an excellent right-back, is in the early stages of small-club contract-rundown and could go for £2m in the end.'

Have they inadvertently let slip that Reading is Damian Comolli's new home? Still, Reading could be in luck when King Kenny gets wind of this and offers £46m.

Sage words from Paul Elliott about Bayern Munich in the Champions League final:

"They have the added advantage of playing in their own stadium, in Germany. That's like a home game for them."

Quite so.

From the '16 Conclusions from City 1 United 0' on F365:

'If the game was half-lost with Ferguson's team selection, it was pretty much discarded the minute Evans lost Kompany for the opener.'

To be fair to Ms Winterburn, Evans was nowhere to be seen. Surely one of United's top centre-backs this season should be picking up such runs, regardless of whether he was in the team or not.

Poor show Jonny, poor show...... getting sh!t when he's not even on the pitch

'Roberto Di Matteo says a top-four finish is more important to Chelsea than winning the FA Cup - or even the Champions League,' writes Mark Irwin in The Sun.

We'll stop you there, Mark. No, no he didn't say any such thing. He said reaching the top four was 'crucial'. Thank you.

We know lots of people aren't as interested in tactics as we are, which is fine. However, if you don't know anything about tactics, have no interest or been paying no attention, we do politely ask you not to write about them.

And by 'you' we do of course mean 'The Sun'.

The paper writes: 'Newcastle rarely deviate from the 4-4-2 formation which has served them so well...'

Indeed. So rarely do they deviate from the standard 4-4-2 that, for the past two months, they've been playing 4-3-3 with Demba Ba roaming around the left wing.

Hats off to the Rovers fan who ran onto the pitch during the Wigan game and threw his season ticket at the (wrong) dugout.

In the final home game of the season, it was quite the meaningful protest.

Last week we wonderered whether Chelsea's new signing Marko Marin had got his teams mixed up when he explained his choice of new club thusly: "Above all, Chelsea's play is based a lot on wide men."

This week it's the turn of Jan Vertonghen, who seems to be rather keen on joining Tottenham. Why? Because "they buy young, eager and offensive-minded players", of course.

At what point will someone point Vertonghen to a list of recent Tottenham signings that includes Ryan Nelsen (34), Louis Saha (33), Scott Parker (31) and Brad Friedel (40)?

What next? Eden Hazard choosing Manchester City because they're a family-run club?

No doubt cheesy Brit film writer Richard Curtis is already planning to use this incident in his next twee Hugh Grant vom-com, but Gooner Luke McQueen, who does have more than a touch of the posh-fop about him, probably deserves some credit after posing outside the Emirates in a Tottenham shirt.

The Arsenal fan apparently cheated on his girlfriend, ‘Sarah’, and then, after being caught out, decided on the old chestnut of the grand gesture, in this case featuring himself wearing a Tottenham shirt outside the stadium of his beloved Arsenal. He even posted the whole thing on Youtube.

However, let’s be honest, Arsenal fans are probably the least violent in the country, if not the world. Indeed, if he really wants to impress his ex, how about standing outside Elland road in a Man Utd top? Or maybe Ibrox in a Celtic shirt? Maybe then, and only then, would she forgive him.

At 9.19am on Wednesday May 9, the Daily Mail website carried the headline 'Messi at the centre of race storm as axed Everton ace Drenthe accuses Barca star'. They had lifted Drenthe's quotes from Dutch website Nu.nl (with a credit), who had in turn taken them from Dutch magazine Helden. The footballing world paused for a second and then the band played on.

On Thursday May 10, Mediawatch picked up a copy of The Sun to see the headline 'MESSI IN RACE ROW' on the front page. Yes, that's the actual front page. You will not be surprised to know that they have tagged the story - by now 24 hours old - as an 'EXCLUSIVE'. The only real shock is that they haven't found a way to blame Roy Hodgson.

Footballers love their banter. They live for their banter. So over to Jonjo Shelvey to explain why he celebrated his goal against Chelsea on Tuesday night with a traditional 'speccy' gesture.

Warning: This is very, very funny banter.

"I celebrated like that because my brother wears glasses - everyone in the family wears glasses except for me. He and I like a bit of banter."





I am mightily relieved that Jonjo's brother is not in a wheelchair.
