Stan_1 Former England striker Stan Collymore is one of the celebrity jurors in a mock trial to be shown on BBC Two from Sunday night. The Verdict is a four-part series which will see the jury in court and deliberating over the fictional trial of a footballer in a rape case. If that doesn’t already sound like television gold, Pies can reveal that Stan the Man does have to refer to himself as "Stanley Victor Collymore" while being sworn in!

Collymore – possibly the only footballer to have made as many appearances for Real Oviedo as for England – has now ditched his insane optimistic plans of a return to top-flight football. Click here to see a clip of Stan talking about The Verdict. We will look back at Collymore at his best instead. [Rob Parker]

    Collymore has got to be the thickest loud mouth ever to have disgraced a TV show and that other So Solid Idiot – Mega-Twat who held similar views is definitely suffering from an untreatable mental illness in the form of a Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It’s not fair on these Dimbos with such obvious learning disabilities to have them betray their limitations. They will be pilloried forever – shame.

    Is this my mate and most “mod” John Greengrass that I worked with at The Park Lane back in the 60’s?
