Overthinking It? of the Week

James Scowcroft, ex-Crystal Palace, Ipswich Town and Leicester City

Ryan Giggs player coach. Or is that David Moyes suggesting that Giggs isn't going to be playing for him.

— James Scowcroft (@scowy1975) July 4, 2013

@scowy1975 he has been named "player coach", not "coach". You work it out…

Off on One Again of the Week

Joey Barton

On the train to London. Missing my little boy already… pic.twitter.com/ScF90awY6b

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 2, 2013

I have actually never taught him to kick a ball or hit a golf ball but you want to see him do it. 18 months old. #talented

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 2, 2013

I know every parent thinks their kids is/are geniuses but I will put a video up and you can judge it yourselves…

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 2, 2013

Just realised I'm not sure you can put videos up. Can you?

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 2, 2013

I'm not a believer in people being born talented, so it is obviously him picking it up from his environment. He is already amassing hours!

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 2, 2013

As long as he is a happy, balanced, kind human being then he can play whatever sport he likes. I'd prefer golf or tennis but its his choice

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 2, 2013

A.) because football is full of nuggets B.) those other sports follow the sun C.) never be compared to his dad D.) see more of the world

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 2, 2013

Finally… E.) football is full of nob heads

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 2, 2013
