Relax – football men of England – he only does it to lower his anxiety, and it’s utterly useless anyway. Frank “Lamps” Lampard isn’t buying it though – he thinks it was a PR exercise…. but 30 years of El Loco suggests this man ain’t fakin’. Ken picks it all apart.

We have Gerry Thornley on the 5 Connacht players in the Ireland 6N squad, and the late bloomers theme to Schmidt’s selection.

And UK author Chris Hewitt discusses a trio of Ireland-England match-ups in the Heineken Cup this weekend, with Leinster up against a dying Wasp, Ulster facing out of date but proud Leicester and in the tie of the round, Munster at home to domestic Gods but Euro strugglers (Br)Exeter.
Plus there’s verbal (and actual) hand grenades, Pep on Amazon, and sleeping the sleep of the just.
I hope that press conference helped you to understand why we named our stadium after him.
