Tevez, Moyes and Stamford Bridge finger food
I was at a charity do on Tuesday night and turned on my phone afterwards to see if anything interesting had happened in the world of sport.
The first thing that caught my eye was the two Kettering players sent off for fighting over who would take a penalty kick. I thought that was going to be the big talking point of the night but then I saw Carlos Tevez's name popping up all over the place.
BBC Radio 5 Live was full of Tevez talk while, after I got home, the news channels were running pictures of a gesticulating Mancini and a confused Tevez talking to Pablo Zabaleta. None of us know the exact way things developed in Munich - whether Tevez flatly refused to go on or simply misunderstood instructions from the boss - but it doesn't really matter.
He is paid by the club to play football. If the club ask him to play football - even in a way he's not keen on - he must do it. He has to do it for himself, his manager, his team-mates and for the thousands of people many footballers don't seem to care about - the fans.

On our stroll into Stamford Bridge, both Martin and Dennis were stopped for autographs and photos while, inside, Mr Wise was barely able to move five yards without meeting someone he either used to work with, went to school with or was related to. It is safe to say he is a lot more popular at Stamford Bridge than he is at St James's Park.
The amicable nature of things didn't end once the Chelsea first team started arriving for their lunch at around 1115. Five minutes later, Keown and Wise were attracting a staggering amount of attention. John Terry, Nicolas Anelka, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard all stopped for a man hug and chat. Such was the interest in our duo at the top of the tunnel that even players who had never met them before were stopping by for a high-five.
Chelsea were very helpful in the build-up to the show but understandably denied our request for an interview with Fernando Torres.
Once Wise and Keown finished their greeting line, we rattled through the show with the only controversial moment being my choice to wear a surprisingly thick coat in the full glare of the sun. It seemed like a good idea at six in the morning when it was a little chilly on my way to BBC Television Centre to talk to Mike Bushell on BBC Breakfast - but I was feeling the burn by midday.
When we take the show on the road we normally stay on to watch the game but last Saturday I was making my way to a wedding in west London. Being able to make the reception was great but it did mean I had to forfeit one of the great pre-match meals of our time.
Regular readers know I like my food so let me describe the spread in the press room at Stamford Bridge. As you look at the food area, which is big, the right-hand side has hot food, with a selection of curry and stew plus various rice or potato choices.
The middle section brings together cold meat and salad - but nothing run-of-the-mill. There is cured Parma ham and rare beef beautifully folded and surrounded by green stuff that even my father-in-law, a massive anti-salad campaigner, would consider edible.
As we sweep left there is fresh fish and quiches before the far end of the table brings you to the cheese, biscuit and grape centre. All-in-all it is a culinary masterpiece and I don't think I've ever been to Stamford Bridge without having to go down a few holes on the belt.
It's easy to forget there's a game going on.

This weekend we are back in the Salford studio and have an interview with David Moyes lined up. Feel free to fire some questions over for the Everton boss. Personally I'm intrigued to see what he has to say after a frugal summer - especially with the Merseyside derby this weekend.
Talking derbies, we will reflect on Arsene Wenger's 15 years at Arsenal and ask if the balance of power is switching in north London.
Demba Ba will talk about Newcastle, Nigel Adkins will give us an insight into life at Southampton and we will celebrate John Motson's time as a football commentator.
You will hear a bit from Sir Alex Ferguson, we will remember one of the great football films of all time and Robbie Savage, plus his Strictly Come Dancing partner Ola Jordan, will take on Lawro in Premier League predictions.
I'll see you for all that at 1215 BST on BBC One.
