Quote of the day

"Joe's the man to do the job. He's my hero. Is he better than Capello? Definitely."

Mike Ashley's clearly either too much in the charitable Christmas spirit, or he's been at the Christmas spirits.

Interesting, then, that while he's been bigging up JFK, the latter has for his part been busy reminding his boss that he won't be dictated to when it comes to transfers: "But I'll certainly identify the players; no-one's going to be bought without my wishes - without me having the final say." I'm sure King Kev said something similar - so if you didn't give him free reign, Mike, then why might you be prepared to do it for JFK? What's changed?

In other news two of this afternoon's results were rather depressing: the Mackems racked up another win, scoring four for the second successive game since Keano departed to walk his dog, and went above us into 12th, while Fat Sam was fortunate enough to find his new Blackburn side up against an exceedingly obliging Stoke defence.

All of which makes it imperative that we avoid defeat (at very least) at home to Spurs tomorrow. In that respect, our cause looks as though it'll be helped by the absence through injury (what else?) of Jonathan Woodgate. Given the traumatic conclusions of the last two home games, it comes as something of a relief that the visitors will be without their own ex-Toon central defender... Jermaine Jenas is likely to miss out too - though, thinking about it, both were absolutely appalling when we last met the Spuds at White Hart Lane in March, so perhaps their absences aren't to be celebrated at all...
