Jermaine PedantJermaine Pedant says… It strikes as peculiar that you should all choose to emphasise the silent vowel within ‘Bale’ (ie. E) rather than that which is sounded (ie. A).

There is of course the possibility that you all meant to write ‘vale’, the colloquial Spanish affirmative generally translated as ‘okay’, only to be confused by the Spanish way of pronouncing the letter V as B.

What say you, Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley?

Hero of the Weekend

Wally Downes, ex-Wimbledon

Order Chateaubriand and its essential you share with the right person! Very enjoyable. Oh and by the way I saved a mans life! #heimlich

— wally downes (@wal10) September 15, 2013

Disappointing thing about being a lifesaver is the way people look upon you as some sort of super hero! All I did was save somebodies life!

— wally downes (@wal10) September 15, 2013

Anybody would have done the same, all I did was sense the danger he was in, use my first aid skills, apply the maneuver and save his life

— wally downes (@wal10) September 15, 2013

I don't want to keep banging on about it but he wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for me! Ungrateful bleeder, never even sent a drink over

— wally downes (@wal10) September 15, 2013

I'm not saying I won't save any more lives, and I didn't do it for the hero status, but I may have to be slightly more selective? #realhero
