Andy Carroll and the Drinking Game

Andy Carroll’s alleged weakness for lager (eight or nine pints in one evening!) flows nicely into English football’s sudsy history, but Carroll’s status as Albion’s bright young hope means his servers will probably be calling the Daily Mail with his nightly quaff tallies. Blame lager itself, which “begets only lager, and a full raft of degenerative lager trimmings: the palette-sharpening lager-fag, the lager-hunger solace of the sodden kebab. Lager turns the world a single colour: lager colour.” (Barney Roney/The Guardian)
