They don't make 'em like they used to

Before 'Byker Grove' and 'Goal' there was 'Sissy's Antjog 'Jossy's Giants', written by none other than darts commentating legend Sid Waddell. And it just so happens to be the subject of Paul's latest A-Z Of Football piece on Cheer Up Alan Shearer, which - as you may have guessed - has reached the letter J. "Football's just a branch of science"? Now there's a sentiment Sam Allardyce and his backroom team might agree with...

I chose Judas as my topic, while others include jumpers for goalposts and Peter Taylor's bizarrely strong faith in Junior Lewis's footballing abilities - a faith shared by precisely no one else.
