Gordon in the morning: What boys like

Pussycat Dolls are playing tonight, which has sent Gordon off dreaming off the possibility of another twelve months' worth of stories about overpaid footballers dating underdressed singers:

An army of Premiership footballers are descending on the Pussycat Dolls gig in Cardiff tonight in the hope of pulling a Pussycat and becoming half of the next Posh and Becks.

Manchester United and Man City players have been block-booking PCD dates at the MEN arena.

Any football fan on the girls’ touring staff will have a tidy bargaining chip for free match tickets: A meet-and-greet with the eligible bachelorettes.

LADY GAGA is supporting, making it doubly certain any single footballers worth their salt (and probably a few married ones) will be getting down to the gig.

There's something almost - almost - sweet about Gordon imagining someone backstage as the Pussycat Dolls and Lady GaGa run about getting ready would view their position as nothing more than an excellent way to engineer a free pass to Bolton v West Ham.

I'm not sure why Gordon believes that Manchester Evening News Arena is in Cardiff.

Hey, Gordon, talking of Lady GaGa, she went out wearing not many clothes yesterday. Did you see?
It's Lady bra bra

Yes. He saw.

Gordon's team covers the raid at Amy Winehouse's flat, where fifteen grand of stuff was pinched - some of it irreplaceable.

Terrible luck for Amy, of course. It's almost as if the thieves knew where the flat was, like it had appeared in national newspapers regularly in the past, and that they knew the place was empty. But how could they have known Winehouse was in St Lucia? Any ideas, Gordon?
