This audio has comes round the houses via the Beeb, and details the ‘tunnel spat’ (‘chat’ is somewhat closer to the mark) that Roberto Mancini and Steven Gerrard engaged in following yesterday’s Carling Cup semi-final first leg at the Etihad…

Gerrard approaches Mancini to take him to task over his conduct following both Vincent Kompany’s red card against Manchester United on Sunday and Glen Johnson’s two-footed piledriver last night – to which the City manager clearly replies (at the 0:13 mark), and I quote:

“Whale tea, sea cake and FROSTIES!!!”

Pretty conclusive. So can we please just put this whole charade to bed once and for all now?

Speaking of Gerrard, news is just filtering through from Liverpool’s official site that he’s signed a new, long-term contract extension at Anfield this afternoon that will take him up to the end of his playing days and also see him become a ‘club ambassador’ from then on.

Just so you know.
