Best man wanted
Nice banner on display at the end of the semi-final caught by the cameras, reading "Chris, you need a new best man, I'm going to Wembley!" Quite right too. Meanwhile Big Joe tells me that Anton Ferdinand was spotted in the Alpari Stand and this led to several anti-John Terry songs. Nice that Anton still supports the club. And then there was Russell Brand sitting next to Trevor Brooking - what must their small talk have been like? Not sure if Sir Trev does drug and sex anecdotes, so guess they discussed the 1980 Cup Final instead...
