Years ago, I remember Des Lynam on Grandstand reading the footie results & saying "And John Thomas has scored" before s******ing. Can't remember which team, though.

Regarding Wayne Wanklyn, can I just add that he finished his career at no less a club than ... Staines Town. This is true. I have a Staines v Kingstonian proggo which namechecks the great man.
