Of the season ending injury to Queens Park Rangers forward Jamie Mackie suffered in this weekend’s FA Cup defeat to Blackburtn, the Fiver’s Barney Ronay and Rob Bagchi describe it thusly ;

QPR Snap! Jamie Mackie suffers double leg-crack in a challenge with funny-looking moustachioed fellow Gael Givet but is far more upset about Blackburn Rovers’ lovely El Hadji Diouf whispering Bad Things ( “f*** you and f*** your leg”, allegedly) in his ear while writhing around on the Ewood turf. “I’m trying hard not to think about Diouf,” Mackie said today. “That’s because when I do it makes me want to snap my cast off and run up there and find him.” The Fiver is currently frowning like Uri Geller, rubbing its magic orange ball and furiously trying to transmit think-about-Diouf brainwaves across the high-end sanitoriums of west London.

The shy, retiring Superhoops manager Neil Warnock (above), somehow managed to express himself openly after the incident.
