I appreciate I have offered no reasons why they might help you on a cold Sunday morning on Hackney Marshes, and the obvious thought is that sitting in your bedroom bashing a pad won't do one jot for your fitness.

I would like to be considered for the position of Football Manager in your esteemed club/association. Yes, I know you haven't advertised the vacancy but I have heard you got rid of the last unfortunate and anyway this is the 21st century. Surely institutionalized omerta is a thing of the past. Isn't it?

If this is real, it's a ridiculous attempt. Golfer Rory McIlroy has been promoting the new PGA Golf '13 computer game, and took on Soccer AM's crossbar challenge by hitting a ball from 150 yards away. You can see the results for yourself, but it truly is an impressive achievement, worthy of keeping Caroline Wozniacki [.

Proof if proof were needed

I'm afraid the rumours are true. Wayne Rooney will undoubtedly be calling an emergency press conference in the next few hours to announce the news that he will be playing his football at the Bernabeu next season.

A theory doing the rounds in some quarters is that the crunch games in our push for fourth is not the quartet against the big boys (Man Utd-l'Arse-Chelski-City) but the four against the less glamorous mob – Pompey, Sunderland, Burnley and Bolton. Anything less than three points against each of this lot, so goes the theory, and we really will throw away fourth spot.

So Michael Owen reinvigorated his World Cup chances and Manchester United cruised into the Champions League knockout stage as top of their group at the expense of poor old Wolfsburg. I noticed several things from this engrossing encounter, chief among them were:

I enjoyed writing the Board Game reviews so I thought I'd divert my attention to some computer games. Therefore with the recent release of FIFA 2011 for the Playwotsit, or is it the XWotsit? I thought I'd take a look at some of the other games available on the market, starting with this absolute beauty of a title.

John Terry is facing consequences of a substantial nature as the FA begin their investigation into whether or not the England and Chelsea captain racially abused Anton Ferdinand during Chelsea's 1-0 loss to QPR last weekend.

There are several things you should know about me before I get into it.

  1. My name is Bert Tiddle. Not Burt Tiddle. That's an idiot name. Bert. Like the Muppet.
  2. I had a wonderful career as a professional footballer, the highlight of which was winning the 1987 FA Cup with Coventry City and never getting to spend more than a season and a half with one club.

Dont you just hate it when you're in the middle of a debate over the signing of players and somebody resorts to the 'This is not Championship manager' line? As much as it irritates me it really does make me giggle..Are these people for real?
