Seemingly responding to complaints that people can't connect and identify with the players, I notice the club has been running a little video item called "The hot seat".

So far they've had Blair Sturrock and a bewigged Ryan Hall in the hot seat dishing the dirt on their colleagues.

A couple of vaguely interesting tit-bits:

* both players reckon Clohessy is our quickest player. I'm not sure whether this is because we've a lack of pace in our squad or if it's just because like Lewis Hunt, who was also quick when he needed to be, he's generally in the right position so doesn't have to sprint to get back into position a la Simon Francis.

* Hall nominates Graham Coughlan as the best and Matt Paterson as the worse trainer at the club - which might give a bit more insight into some team selections

*Louis Soares isn't the brightest (according to Hall), nor is Ryan Hall (according to Blair Sturrock)

*Luke Prosser always has shiny shoes (maybe a few scuff marks would stop him slicing it?)

* Quite a few mentions of Scott Spencer, suggesting he may still be alive
