Champions League, Podcast, Fulham Goals, Scribes, Fergie Book

Mega Tuesday!

Good grief, there's loads on the plate today. Let's kick off with a look at last night's action in South London. Palace are in big trouble after Fulham hit them for four last night at Selhurst Park. Everyone at SSN Headquarters has money on Ian's head being the first to roll this season. Sachin Nakrani was there and filed this report.

The Podcast. One of the things they discuss this week is the amazing goals we saw. Wilshere, Ibra, et al. But the piece was recorded prior to Kasami's ridiculous van Basten imitation and Sidwell's sick volley. This bit in The Guardian has all of the best, including the two from Fulham last night.

Sir Alex Ferguson's novel is being released today. Here's the story: basically, when literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms. Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons...Wait! No! It's about Fergie's time in football. Non-fiction. Sorry. Here are 10 Things We Learned from the book. And 4 Revelations. And Best Bits.
