All of Lampard's Relations Are Called Frank

With most of the footie journo's away on their free jaunt to Switzerland and Austria the crazy rumours seem to have more or less dried up.

The big story yesterday was that West Ham weren't signing Djibril Cisse. The big news today is that we aren't signing Robbie Fowler.

I did find something yesterday. It is non-West Ham, but interesting nevertheless. It is a Euro 2008 Diary on Football 365 - but a diary from an alternative universe where England managed to qualify for the competition.

The big news is that "Gary Neville has withdrawn his labour and is picketing England's hotel dressed as Che Guevara and clutching a goodwill message from Hugo Chavez. When interviewed Gary said: "It is an insult to the working class that we footballers should live in such luxury while the poor and oppressed are crushed by the wheels of capitalism."

The diary contains a lot more news and even contains a useful TEN FACTS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOUR ENGLAND HEROES. Number six is that all of "Frank Lampard's Relations Are Called Frank." Now I didn't know that - although I do have a vague memory of a chap going by that name once playing left back for West Ham.
