Enough, Already: Phillippine Azkals manager Dan Palami has announced his boys are about to go into a five month intensive training programme to prepare for the AFF Suzuki Cup in November.

GOOD WEEK

TV Enthusiasts: Our mates at KCKRS availed us of the news that Peter Crouch is getting his own talkshow, called, hilariously, On The Couch With Peter Crouch. You might think this is terrible, but we’re addicted to the new series of Geordie Shore.

Also, who watched last night’s premiere of the new ITV1 reality comp, Let’s Get Gold? Starring Freddie Flintoff (cricket bloke), Una Healy (The Saturdays; WAG of rugby chap Ben Foden), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United footballer, obvi) and Martine McCutcheon (who has no great sporting link as far as we can tell), we’re positive none of us missed much.

Score one for the universe.

There’s a big game tomorrow night, obvs. Don’t think for a moment we haven’t been distracted from our work by it.
