Regulars / Best of the Web

Well shut the advent calendar door, it’s the Best of the Web!

You’re already four chocolates down and no closer to starting any useful Christmas shopping. However, you HAVE ordered five miniature allotments (your family will love them!) and managed to put on a cool five pounds round the tum. To celebrate this, and our new found ability to address ourselves in the second person, we bring you that weekly font of online good cheer, the Best of the Web!

I won’t only post football things on here, I promise, but I do like this list of the worst xmas themed football gifts you can buy this year. Everton FC perfume anyone? (Owen)
