On the eve of their opening game of the season, those jokers down the coast at Portsmouth seem to have forgotten to sign any players to replace their unprecedented exodus over the summer. This screenshot shows their entire first team squad. It looked bad on Monday but, as the week has progressed, it has become further depleted and rumour has it other players shown here'll be on their bike soon. No such trouble for us, we may not have convinced a 30 goal a season striker to come south and we might not have tempted Kazenga LuaLua back here (his Twitter is good - good spot At The End of the Day Des) but we have got a title winning keeper.

Anyway, we'll be getting back to what we like doing best tomorrow - like having a bevvy in Paddington station at 11am on a Saturday and trying to flog some paper. When we get to Wiltshire, we'll be forcing the first redesigned TSLR of the season your way in return for still just a solitary gold coin. In this issue we have such delights as Withdean moments by Microsoft Paint; a Portuguese phrasebook; a couple of new columnists and all the usual stuff with Global Seagull, eBay crap, Marco van Bastard; Mendoza; Carter; Midfield Diamond; Flairwatch; Journeyman and The Hovian. And if you're lucky you might get a tweet or something.
