A moment of magic from Jimmy as Tim Howard held onto a Martin Petrov effort:
“No sign of a spill. No jam down the side of the pot there.”
Credit where it’s due to Paul Jewell’s Five Live verdict on Big Sam:
“He will take his sacking on the chins.”
But no marks for the week’s unforgettable mental image, when discussing the signing of Danny Mills and Robbie Savage:
“Both were getting a massage lying next to each other on a bed comparing tattoos. So they seem to be best of lovers at the moment.”
Nice line from David Thompson on Soccer Am, who won’t be doing a Yosser Hughes for a while yet.
“So David you’ve retired now, have you got some work lined up?”
“Eh, I’m a Scouser… I don’t want a job.”
