Notes

The youngster gets his big chance, scores five goals iin seven and then fizzles out like a damp SQUIB.

* a favourite malapropism: I’ve noticed more than one radio commentator/ summariser using it. How a small hissing firework and a ten-armed marine creature can be confused is beyond me.

(but then, I’ve never met an angry squid)
