The title summons up imagery of Granville straddling me at the Potter’s wheel, lovingly helping to craft a clay creation as we unite to sculpt out a Van Persie bust – in true Lionel Ritchie’s “Hello” style.

That’s probably lost approximately half of our potential audience who are too young to recall the analogy. The other half are likely to be repelled by the image of Granville and I caught in a Swayze/Moore-like clinch.

If you’re part of the minority still sticking around, curious to hear how the above nonsense translates into a podcast, then listen up. You’ll catch the plenty of Wildcard ribbing, a tale of captain calamity exposed by this week’s community questions and the usual array of regulars.

  4. Steve Bruce: I expect to be quiet. We have done what we want to do (Jelly & Long) very pleased with what we have done. No more in. Jack Hobbs maybe on his way out, but that's probably it. Danny Graham probably leaving as well.

  5. My WC-team:

    Boruc, Mannone
    Cahill, Azpi, Kompany, Olsson, Bruce
    Hazard, Yaya, Lalla, Eriksen, Noone
    Sturr, Adebayor, Suarez
    1.1 ITB

    Any suggestions?
    I think Adebayor is the safer choice (compared to Dzeko/Negredo) at the moment. But I already have Eriksen. And I'm still not sure if I should ditch Aguero. Still haven't found any official news on his injury. Is their a press talk with Pellegrini today?
