"Football isn't a matter of life and death - it's much more important than that!"

Too true, too true! Just last night a football pitch was the setting for the first of the Seven Signs of the Apocalypse: Morientes and Cisse scoring in the same match for Liverpool.

Yes, Rafa's Riff-Raff finally came good, even though it was against Anderlecht, who lost in the Champions League for a record 11th straight time. The Belgian fans will surely welcome the End of Days with open arms. After all, it will mean the resurrection of their household-name stars, like... like...

Of course, the Morientes-Cisse confluence could simply have been the result of a rift in the space-time continuum. Such rifts are sufficiently rare that it will be 4,228,364,197 years before we have a 5 percent chance of seeing the two Continentals on the same scoresheet again. By then, David Pleat may have landed another coaching job. Or it could just be Armageddon.


While not rising to the level of a sign of The Final Judgment, a certain Aberdeen grump's most recent comments do prove that he's living in an alternate reality. Of pug-faced Wine Hrooney, the hairdryer specialist said this: "He seems to have a very old head on young shoulders and is far more mature than any other boy of his age." Sure, Alex, and the invasion of Iraq has been a huge success....
