    The Sun is undeniably a despicable paper, but I must tip my hat to tomorrow's front page headline (in relation to Teves's community service):

    You'd have to be a mug to think he was 28 at that time though! He looked about 40 at France '98!

    Ahead of last year's Under-17 World Cup in, as it happened, Nigeria, the governing body announced that players would be subjected to wrist scans using magnetic resonance imaging, and this would determine their true age.

    That led some countries to undertake precautionary scans beforehand. The results were never announced, but Nigeria suddenly discarded 15 squad members, while Gambia omitted 11 of the 18 who had helped them to victory in the African Under-17 championship a few months earlier. Reports claim that retrospective analyses of the previous three Under-17 World Cups showed more than a third of all players were too old.
    oh dear

    That's just cheered me up no end. Comedy gold that article.

    Just had a look at Taribo Wests wiki page and it reckons he only made 169 senior appearences. That cant be right, shirley?

    I know he only had a season with us, but im sure he played more than 19 times. It also says hes 6'1 and, having met him, he is never that tall.

    Nice guy, though. Ultra religious and another one who sends most of his dough back to africa.

    Obafemi Martins is 46 this year.
    I couldn't believe Martins is still getting a game for Levante. I honestly thought he would have retired by now. Just went on Wiki and it says he's 28!!! (And playing for Seattle Sounders)

    "Among the players at Portsmouth, it was well known Kanu never trained. "King", as we called him, never even walked up a flight of stairs. We only had one flight of stairs at Portsmouth's training ground, but Kanu would always wait for the lift. He was practically incapacitated, but on the field of play he could do amazing things. I remember one match against Middlesbrough, Kanu came on, ran three-quarters of the length of the pitch, scored and then travelled home in a wheelchair."

    I fucking loved Kanu. Was a great player for us, his goal vs Depor is still one of my all time favourites. Good old Wanky

    And, of course, let's not forget the famous Chelsea 2 - 3 Kanu match, and his 'impossible' third goal. Brilliant.

    I love the idea of him in a post-match wheelchair routine, being regally wheeled around the dressing room by his pompy teammates. It's no more than he deserves :0)

    Kanu, Taribo West, and (to a lesser extent) the "young" (lol) Methusela....err, I meant Martins. Part of the Nigerian Golden Generation.

    Even though the recently won the ACN, that Nigerian teams was one of the best African teams and with a reasonable shot at even the WC (as Tony Blair's Dark Horse....I'm sure there's something racist in there somewhere, lol).

    They discovered a flaw in the penalty rules which states that the ball has to travel forwards...but not that somebody else can't touch it into the goal. So they were trying a fancy pass so that they could see where the keeper had dived and put the ball away.

    Essentially it was a 'we're so fucking good we'll invent new ways of beating you because the old simple ways have become boring' until he overhit the pass and fucked it all up.
