    I always think “Henry Winter, chief football writer of The Times” ought to be a venerable pinstriped fella, recalling Eusebio over brandies.
    As it is you wouldn't mistake him for Shaun Ryder in a line up, but I know what you mean.

    Maybe someone should release a series of 50 or so Sloop John B rhythm albums, like the dancehall compilations Greensleeves used to put out.

        Ha, Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess was up before HW and did play Just Can't Get Enough, which may have called for some rapid reprogramming from Murdoch's man.

          Not bad for a 45-year-old:

            I was going to come on and ask, rhetorically, how I've managed to make it to 2019 without knowing that Jermaine Jackson is a Sheffield Wednesday fan. But then whilst doing a pre-post fact check I discovered that brother Jackie* is a Chelsea fan, and I thought that I pretty much knew about all of our celebrity fans. Do we know who the others support, if anyone?

            (I fully expect to be told than Tito ran with the Naughty 40s in the the 1980s and that Randy is a regular at Priestfield, but I live in hope).

            * I did think that Jackie was a poor choice for someone with the surname Jackson but it turns out to be a nickname and that his real name is Sigmund!

              Randy Jackson isn't a "Jackson" Jackson.

                  There's the American Idol judge... and then there's the youngest brother who replaced Jermaine when he left his deal with Motown and carried on helping with songwriting and playing instruments on the later albums. They are not the same person.

                    I'm sorry - nothing worse than erroneous pedantry. I was only aware of the Idol/Journey one.

                      Quite an interesting article about Archibald Leitch on the Beeb's website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-48028660
