I knew it! Goodbye Hoof Hello Nutmeg is the ‘free football magazine’ accompanying Nike’s Euro 2004 marketing push. Readers of a route one disposition should possibly refrain from clicking.

This seems as good a time as ever to mention the Bluffer’s Guide To Fannydangle feature we thought up in the pub last night. Fannydangle, you will recall, is defined as “stylish but ineffective play”, and it turns up in more sports than football (and not just sports). What are the symptoms of fannydangle in cricket? In tiddleywinks? In blogging?* A spotter’s guide to FD is in preparation – and suggestions are very welcome.

*OK, in blogging it’s announcing features and never doing them, ahem.
