Sod 'Em

Fifa has fined all four home nations for displaying poppies during World Cup qualifiers around Armistice Day.
England and Scotland players wore armbands featuring the symbol when they met at Wembley on 11 November.
Wales and Northern Ireland's respective games featured displays on the pitch or in the stands to mark the event.
England's Football Association will appeal against the fine of 45,000 Swiss francs (£35,311), with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland yet to decide.
Scotland and Wales were both fined 20,000 Sfr (£15,694), and Northern Ireland 15,000 Sfr (£11,770).
