Quote of the day

"Another thing about our Peruvian friend is that he has a tendency to play the trumpet - he doesn't play it very well, but he is certainly happy for people to hear him. Nobby used to treat us to his music in the dressing room - it did produce some interesting reactions".

Alan Shearer, writing in his regular column for the BBC, welcomes the return of the Phantom Trumpeter Nolberto Solano. What Shearer doesn't mention is that Nobby's also very fond of leaving team-mates answerphone messages that consist entirely of trumpet-playing.
