The Joy of Six: sporting pranksters — Lining up with Manchester United before a Champions League match against Bayern Munich. Playing before a packed house on Wimbledon's Centre Court. Walking out to bat for England in an Ashes Test. Milking the applause of the petrol-headed multitudes on a grand prix winners' podium at Silverstone.

A career nadir from which there will be no return — Itchy. Pinky and the Brain. Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Mortimer Mouse. Jerry Mouse. Danger Mouse. Mighty Mouse. The Biker Mice from Mars. The Fiver didn't get where it is today padding out the opening paragraph of its tea-timely football email with lists of mice who made their names entertaining the slack-jawed masses, but today we're prepared to make an exception.

Football Weekly Extra: FA Cup review and a Sarri state of affairs in Italy — AC Jimbo and co look back over the FA Cup third-round replays and preview Chelsea's trip to Arsenal in the Premier League. Plus, homophobia in Italy; PSG made to sweat in France; and tiny East Kilbride set up a clash with Celtic

Swansea City’s derailment slows one of football’s most impressive rises — Prompted by journalists before making his England debut, Jonjo Shelvey ran the idea of Garry Monk becoming Roy Hodgson's eventual successor as England manager up the flagpole and left it flapping in the breeze. The Swansea City midfielder's views were duly noted and reproduced.

Which player has played consecutively for most clubs on one train line? — "In a moment of Wikipedia-fuelled, post-Christmas procrastination," wrote Adam Glass a couple of weeks ago, "I happened to notice that Iain Dowie had played consecutively for three clubs that have train stations on the same line: St Albans City, Hendon and then Luton Town (the line being the Thameslink from Bedford to Brighton).

Football transfer rumours: Lukaku to join Man Utd for £65m? — Big news in the Mirror today, who reveal certain Dutch sources think Louis van Gaal is ready to leave Manchester United this summer. The word on De 9 Straatjes of Amsterdam's trendy Old Town is that Louis has had enough of being criticised for his side's often moribund style of play and is ready to leave Old Trafford a year before his contract expires so that he can enjoy the finer things in life.
