The best stuff wot I did see on the worldwide interweb today:


1. The undisputed No.1 today is a quite fantastic – and staggeringly long, by today’s slapdash standards – piece on the great, mulleted Denmark team of the 1980s. Pwoppa journalism, this, so big props to authors Rob Smyth and Lars Eriksen. [The Guardian]

2. The real reason behind David Beckham’s lovely beard. [Off the Post]

3. Inside the mind of Peter Crouch. [Dirty Tackle]

4. Solid analysis of Fabio Capello’s World Cup options by the Beeb’s Phil McNulty. [BBC Sport]

5. Dimitar Berbatov is the daddy. I mean, er, a daddy. [Kickette]

6. Hilario: “Petr Cech is my friend.” Ah, so sweet. [Goal]

7. England expects, but expects too much: The NY Times’ less-than-impressed view of England’s game against Belarus. [NY Times]

8. Things not looking good for Gooch Onyewu at AC Milan. [Unprofessional Foul]

9. More me, but somewhere else. Soon, I’ll start referring to myself in the third person, like Robinho. [BigSoccer]

10. Talking of Robinho, looks like he’s off to Barcelona in January… [Goal]
