I seem to be restricting my blogs to this more and more but the whole process of procrastination does dig up some gems:
Following another defeat, Crystal Palace manager Smith pointed to Latvian goalkeeper Alex Kolinko who had been in tears after the game. 'I made up a story about him. I said he came from the poorest mountain village in Latvia where he had to fight bears when he was eight. I said his grandparents had been shot by the Nazis, his mother had died of cancer and his sister was raped by a gang of mountain rebels. But he never shed a single tear because he was strong and brave. Then I told them that one month playing behind our defence had turned him into a blubbering wreck! The players didn't know what to say. Except Clinton Morrison – he said, "It's a shame about his sister".'
I'll add that this was a time when we were a bit shite. We're getting better now!

Funny the things you find hidden away on message boards. Like this about Croydon's latest nutter:
The funniest thing i saw was this nutter walking around with a helium balloon the other day asking people if they wanted to go on holiday with him to Hawaii. He then got us and asked us to "hop in" the balloon. I couldn't stop laughing until he turned around to my friend, who is about 6'3 and build like the great wall of china and says "not you, you can get in my speed boat and come to Miami", he then proceeds to point to his shoe and try to usher my friend in. Very funny.
