Had to love this from an article on Newsnow:

So a guy puts 90 pence on an 11 match accumulator at the weekend

At one stage, he's offered £1750 as a cash out for his 90p and he lets it go because a couple more scores go his way. He's holding out for £250,000 and it all looks like he's going to spank the bookies for a quarter of a million BUT......

Leon Clarke scores 4, so the ONLY ONE match that lets him down is Blades v Hull and who does the guy support? YES! Hull City!  :DD :DD :DD :DD :DD

He made a great comment afterwards, saying if it had come in he could have bought his own house and a Range Rover but now he has to stay with his mum and drive a Corsa  :DD :DD

I agree, but I would like to see him play out on the left. I am not convinced that the right wing is his best position.

He had a good game last night.  He kept switching from left to right and as Wales play quite a narrow midfield was able to cut inside often too. 

Everytime he gets the ball you expect him to do something special, which is a burden he needs to learn to live with as sometimes a simple pass would have done but he tried to meg the defenders instead.  To be fair, when the ball went to him he was closed down right away by 3 Panamanian defenders - they'd obviously realised his potential to rip them a second arsehole.

He could have scored with a sweet left footer after cutting into the area from the right, but a deflection off the defender took it over.

You could see the Welsh forwards (Vokes etc) thanking him for the crosses and balls he was putting in.  These same players are going to be returning to their clubs and telling their managers to go and look at that kid in Sheffield...

I hope the board were serious when they say they want to keep him.  If we do inevitably have to sell him, I seriously think he could be our first 50m player - if we hold onto him long enough for his value to mature.

What I like about Brooks is he seems to have been given permission to play wherever the game is being played, so he drifts around but is starting to build that disciplined approach to getting back and covering where needed. His progress is amazing and he's going to be a PL regular for sure. Bale's replacement at Real?  ;D

If the club seriously considers anything under £20m for him they want shafting up the wrong 'un with a big knobbly stick

Couple of things now I'm finally able to get into the bar...

Firstly, bit of fun in this article on the Championship's kits ranked.  For some reason, when I first looked at this this morning we were 5th, then we moved to 4th and now 2nd.  There is a fans' vote at the end but I don't think that counts otherwise Ipswich would be 1st.

Second thing I wanted to chuck onto the bartop is a new song for Brooks that I've seen doing the Twitter rounds since his full debut for the Welsh dragons last night (you'll guess the tune from the first line)...

Brooks the magic dragon
Nutmegged Jack Hunt
Left him all tied up in knots
And looking like a cunt...  :ok:
