E14S's post on the World board has just jarred my memory. Last night, I dreamt of David James allowing a howler into his net, a crucial goal, against a team playing in red (that could have been Portugal). It bounced casually over his prostrate head, from a tentative midfield punt by a midfielder, while he was involved in a tussle with some players in the box. James was in tears on the pitch, but then people realised he was crying not for letting in the goal but had broken his leg in a challenge in the melee surrounding it.
If anything remotely resembling this happens tomorrow night I'm expecting a column in the Mail by Saturday headed "Mystic Batu".
