With the Barcelona vs Real Madrid game failing to fulfil its potential, I had a flick through the channels and stumbled across the X Factor final.

Oggled Ashley ‘Rent boy’ Cole’s wife a bit, listened to that irritating little Irish man witter on, then something quite remarkable happened. Obviously not content with his place on the bench for today’s match against Tottenham, Scholes and Giggs the only subs to get a run out, Nani has only gone and got himself in to the X Factor final!

By day…
