    The first trailer for the upcoming Elton John biopic has been released. I believe Watford will be getting a mention in this movie, but either way, I'm looking forward to it.

    Thanks, Levon. I hadn’t heard of this.

    Two wishes.

    That we don’t get distracted by how the look & voice are slightly wrong. Andy Serkis as Ian Dury was good but Dury is Dury.

    Also, to exploit the remarkable physical resemblance, Tom Cruise plays Forestieri. Idris Elba to play both Blissett & Barnes.

    Michael Sheen could play GT, although maybe I just enjoyed The Damned United too much

    Carlyle as the younger Johnston with Gregor Fisher as the more mature athlete?

    I'd defo watch this if it shows a bit of his involvement with our club

    -A young Rutger Hauer as Vydra

    - Lionel Messi in fat suit to play Forestieri, obviously .

    - Roger Moore as GT

    - Graham Norton to play SEJ but completely fxcks it up by being too camp.

    - Sean Bean to play Ross Jenkins.

    - Sly Stallone to play Steve Sherwood. The director objects to this casting but the movie execs insist.

    - Robbie Williams to play Kenny Jacket.

    - And yes RookeyDad Idris has to play Luther although I reckon Samuel L Jackson could add an edge that Luther perhaps didn’t have but audience would like . Perhaps a stately Denzel Washington performance could cover an older Luther when he is kit manager under Lewington.

    Sean Bean not lanky enough to play Ross the Boss. John Cleese?

    I’m struggling to picture him in those odd bondage shorts.

    Why no Spoiler Alert?

    Ruined the film for me.

    Needs the money.

    This could be a green light.

    Certainly ticks the ‘one big one, one small one’ boxes.

    Mo Johnston 5 foot 7 inches.. George Reilly 6 foot 4 inches. Surely the biggest discrepancy in height of any two players we've had playing the same position?

    Genius casting, would have to make it a comedy though.

    Also Sean Bean always dies in movies. We're not Palace or Muff so don't need him going down in the box dramatically.

    Big Cliff and (not quite so big) Tommy Harmer made quite a contrast playing together:

    I believe that Tommy is standing on a bar stool in that picture. Don't however know who the barstool is (maybe Ron Burgess).

    Has anyone heard any whispers about the chances of a concert at the Vic as part of his farewell tour?

    A bunch of UK dates have been announced today, going on sale next week, but with 'more dates to follow'.

    I'm tempted just to get tickets for another show then sell them to friends/family if there is a show announced for the Vic.

    Fingers crossed.

    But even if he did, the Family Stand would still be half empty because it’s half term/school tomorrow/prefer 1D.

    I take it you’re unfamiliar with JC’s recent work.
