Football Weekly podcaster, Talksport sidekick, would also trip if collecting an Oscar.

Fairly banal but sensible answers to fairly banal but sensible questions — GOT YOUR NUMBER GOT YOUR NUMBER Always up for a spot of schoolboy snickering, The Fiver doesn't need to be told to get a calculator twice.

Premier League 2015-16 preview No3: Bournemouth — Guardian writers' predicted position: 17th (NB: this is not necessarily Barry Glendenning's prediction but the average of our writers' tips) Last season's position: 1st (Championship) Odds to win the league (via Oddschecker): 5,000-1 In an interview with the Guardian conducted not too long after securing promotion, Eddie Howe revealed: "It's going to be a difficult season so I just hope Bournemouth people still like me this time next year."

Football transfer rumours: Yannick Bolasie to Tottenham Hotspur? — The Rumour Mill didn't get where it is today closing in on a deal for Pedro, but various reports suggest that's exactly how Manchester United have got to where they are today.

Football Weekly meets: Pat Nevin — With the new season just days away, you'll have to content yourself with Barry Glendenning continuing his conversations with current and former players, managers and cult figures from the wide world of football. In this latest episode, Barry spends an hour in the sunshine with Pat Nevin .

Tour de France 2015: writers’ awards — William Fotheringham: Geraint Thomas. Effectively won the race for Froome by stymieing Sky's rivals in the mountains and produced one of the moments of the race on the descent to Gap. To get within two days of finishing fourth overall after the amount of work he had done was an immense achievement.

Football Weekly meets: Jimmy Bullard — In this episode of Barry Glendenning 's attempts to get up close and personal with members of football's Christmas past, he meets Hull City and Fulham hero Jimmy Bullard . While shooting a round of golf, Bullard discusses his injury-blighted career, his numerous run-ins with various managers, and his time in the I'm A Celebrity jungle.

Football transfer rumours: Kevin de Bruyne to Manchester City for £60m? — We need to talk about Kevin. For all his cunning, guile and undeniable talent as a football manager, the Rumour Mill gets the feeling that, in the very unlikely event José Mourinho should ever entertain a moment's self-doubt, the psychological stick with which he thrashes himself may have a knobbly bit at the end that bears a striking resemblance to whey-faced Belgian playmaker Kevin De Bruyne.

Football transfer rumours: Fernando Llorente to Manchester United? — Like a particularly exciting version of a game of Guess Who?, speculation abounds over the identity of the "surprise" acquisition Louis van Gaal has promised United fans is on his way to Old Trafford.

The dirge rumbled to its conclusion — Considering how little of import or significance actually happens during pre-season friendlies contested in countries far, far away by Premier League clubs who'll be moaning about how tired their players are feeling by December, the Fiver was uncharacteristically grateful for the mundane pre-match niceties that helped prompt so much outrage among various mouth-foamers before West Brom took on Charleston Battery from South Carolina in the US of A.

@WeeMan88 Don't think there's any lack of self confidence there at all. If anything, the opposite. He's very much his own man

@byekitty @jonawils No, but my main motivation upon buying an apple is not 'i must keep this alive for as long as possible'.
