If you too have found yourself back at your desk for the first time since discovering it actually was possible for you to drink your own weight in tequila, here’s a quick rundown of what (we think) happened while we were MIA.

Any mistakes, please forgive. We haven’t technically opened our eyes yet.

Great news for those with a vested interest in stalking sleepy ‘ballers like Frazier Campbell: Martin O’Neill intends to keep David Meyler at Sunderland regardless of the interest the player has attracted from some Championship clubs.
