Paper Monitor

11:51 UK time, Friday, 13 August 2010

A service highlighting the riches of the daily press.

The Daily Mail wasn't the only paper to do this story but, as we've noted before, it does quirky animal stories so well.

For those readers with RSI and for others resistant to clicking away from Paper Monitor, the paper has a huge photograph of a red squirrel in a Travolta-esque/Christmas office party pose.

And the headline? "SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER"

From beast mimicking man to red-top editor mimicking beast. When the tabs get their sharpened incisors into something, they don't let go.

The bone is England manager Fabio Capello, and today they enlist the help of everyone who has ever kicked a football to tell the Italian he should have picked up the phone to tell David Beckham he was no longer needed.

Even an astrophysicist has his say on the matter. Professor Brian Cox, formally of D:Ream, tells Sun readers that he met Becks backstage on the Jonathan Ross show and "Capello is a smaller man than I thought" if he decided to break the news to the media first.

Expect Capello's thoughts on the Large Hadron Collider tomorrow.
