From the WFC noticeboard. Do so hope it's true just for the humour content! :D

> A footballer was arrested and out on bail yesterday, and is due to appear

Well, I'm sure I'd feel much worse if I weren't under such heavy sedation.

As long as there's sex and drugs, I can do without the Rock 'n' Roll....

Afraid I don't remember any Paul Addington playing for Mansfield lately and the "Queen Ann" hospital likewise rings no bells
