"He was so gifted" - Gary Breen in no doubt as to his greatest ever teammate

Just as it seemed Piegate was finally coming to an end, an ironic twist of fate hit Sutton United yesterday in their meeting with Torquay.

Just days after their sub-keeper Wayne Shaw was forced to resign after eating a pie in the dugout of their meeting with Arsenal in the FA Cup, the inevitable happened.

First choice goalkeeper Ross Worner pulled up injured 15 minutes into the action against Torquay, and with no goalie on the bench, defender Simon Downer had to put on the gloves and go into the nets. 

Somehow, Sutton got away with it, coming from behind to claim a 3-2 win. A lucky escape!

This week's World of Football were also baffled by developments at Manchester City, where they installed a "player walkway" leading up to the players' entrance at the Etihad Stadium. We weren't fooled by that description though, it's simply a catwalk...

One man who would do well on the catwalk is Eric Cantona, and he intrigued us by naming former Leeds teammate Gary McAllister as the greatest player he's ever played with.

Gary Breen is a former teammate of McAllister, and spoke to us live from Stamford Bridge. While he did admit that McAllister was top quality, he still found it to be a strange choice by the King of Manchester.

Breen was also in no doubt who his greatest teammate was, with Roy Keane the unsurprising choice. He told us that the Republic of Ireland and Manchester United captain was far more than just a hard worker, going as far as saying that notion is "nonsense". In reality, "he was so gifted".

You wouldn't argue with that.
