"Collymore comeback a joke": After five years out of the profession, striker Stan Collymore says after three weeks of training up in Tenerife he'll be ready to rejoin a Premiership squad. BBC Sport writer Phil McNulty thinks not.

Well that's annoying, I thought my browser should at least have it in the cache but apparently not. Let's just say the writer ridiculed Collymore for even thinking this is possible.

There's a parallel story on Collymore in the football section of the Grauniad. Try www.guardian.co.uk/football And yes, the common theme is ridicule. I must learn how to do that linky thing in html.

There are a few articles on Collymore in the Guardian, Paul Doyle's rumour mill for one, but my favourite is the collection of quotes entitled The World According to Stan Collymore. Nuff said

Did Collymore run over McNulty's dog or something?

He'd be the first Englishman in history to come home from three weeks in Tenerife in better physical shape.
