  1. Brady meets an incredible boy


    We hope you've had a good day, wherever you might be.

    We'll leave you with this painfully sad story, with a wonderfully inspiring message.

    Ten-year-old Logan Schoenhardt, who has an inoperable brain tumour, has a hero.

    That hero is legendary NFL quarter-back Tom Brady.

    "I adore him. I'm one of his biggest fans."

    Logan even asked to have Brady's iconic number 12 engraved on to his skull during a surgery - and his surgeon agreed.

    It's emotional stuff.

    And while we're on the subject of the FA Cup...

    The local furniture supplier has made the offer to the National League side's squad.

    The Silkmen drew 0-0 against the League One club at Moss Rose on 2 December and go to the Kassam Stadium on Tuesday.

    The winner of the tie will earn £27,000 in prize money and will travel to Rotherham in the third round.

  8. Get Involved - Your punditry rulebook


    We asked you to send in your suggestions for rules that pundits need to follow when discussing football matches. 

    Here are the five pillars of punditry, so to speak, ranging from extremely harsh to absolutely spot on.

    1. Every time they use a tired cliche they should have to do a 10-second dance. 

    2. Pundits should not be allowed to use the word 'top' more than once per sentence. This is a top, top rule.

    3. Anyone who thinks it's possible to give more than 100% (the lads gave 110% today, that's all I can ask etc) to be sent straight to do 110% more maths lessons.

    4. Pundits should have to take an exam on the actual LAWS of the game, not the 'rules' as they think they are or were 'in my day'.

    5. Ban the term 'old fashioned English' anything. Unless describing Andy Carroll.

  9. Gossip: Oscar moving to China?


    A couple of papers are reporting that Chelsea forward Oscar is set to leave the club for Shanghai SIGP.

    Former Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is in charge of the Chinese Super League team.

    The Daily Mail say it will be a £52m fee, while the Telegraph has gone with £60m.

  10. Diving? You wouldn't cheat in a maths test!

    Sean Dyche

    Burnley boss Sean Dyche has brought his frank and matter of fact views to the debate around diving.

    Dyche wants to see retrospective bans for divers.

    "My son plays and I can assure you there are kids diving all over the place. That cannot be right. If you caught your kid cheating in a maths test what would you say? You'd go mental, absolutely mental."

  11. Team news

    Bournemouth v Leicester (19:45 GMT)

    Manager Eddie Howe has no fresh injury concerns for Tuesday's game.

    Danny Drinkwater is available for Leicester after completing a three-game suspension, but Danny Simpson serves a ban for collating five bookings.

    Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel might return from a six-week lay-off with a broken hand.

  12. 'Toure thought he was drinking diet cola'

    Yaya Toure

    Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure told a court he thought he was drinking diet cola from a jug at a party, on the night he was tested for drink driving.

    The Manchester City midfielder pleaded guilty to drink-driving, but says he had not "intentionally consumed alcohol".

    He was given an 18-month driving ban.

  13. Beckham Jr got the moves

    Alex Stoyel: "The next goal will be crucial". In football when is it NOT crucial... 4-0? 5-0? Useless commentary!

    Rfan: Every time a pundit criticises a player for a mistake, a clip should be played consisting of their own on-field mistakes.

    It was meant to be.

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic has paid a visit to himself - or at least the sculpted version of himself. The statue will be standing proudly in his native Sweden some time down the line.

    It's 2.7m high, if you're asking.
