Unemployable idiot, Rodney Pole has been urging the England football team to play in a 6-6-4 formation to be in with any chance of landing the 2010 World Cup.
We did point out to Pole that 6-6-4, including the goalie, would make a team total of 17 players, 6 more than the rules of the game allow.
"That's the beauty of it," Pole told us. "With so many players we could beat the Germans, the Italians, the French, and possibly even Brazil and Argentina. We'd have the midfield sewn up, we'd be solid at the back, and up front, with four strikers, we'd be odds on to score goals. We'd be lethal on set-pieces."
At this point, Pole produced a walnut from his pocket and started to sing 'Eidelweiss' from 'The Sound Of Music' to it.
We made our excuses and left. Walking backwards. Very cautiously.
More as we get it, but if it involves Pole we'll probably send someone else.
