Don't steal our sun

Steven Pienaar wants his future to be sorted out before he leaves for the World Cup...and the latest rumour is that old big gums Benitez wants to sign him!
Come to think of it, has he got big gums or really small teeth?
Like Ricky Tomlinson?
Anyway, reports in the Daily Mail are suggesting that Liverpool are "ready to risk the wrath" of Everton by making a move for Pienaar.
If this were the case it would definitely be more Nick Barmby than Abel Xavier on the well tested Everton 'wrath-o-meter'.
There's been no official word from our loveable neighbours but then they're probably too busy moaning about their trip to Madrid to be bothering about anything else!
They'll be travelling first class all the way there, it's hardly going to be the 72-hour Sunrider coach trip endured every year by thousands of people three times the age of a professional footballer.
And you've got the second leg at home so wind your necks in!
The only noises to come out of Goodison regarding Pienaar's possible departure is the dissenting voice of David Moyes.
The Everton manager, understandably, thinks he'd be mad to leave and has said: "Pienaar is at a club that really suits him and sometimes a player has to decide what is best for him. Everton has been good for Steven. If anybody wanted to leave, they'd be poorer for it."
Apart from Joleon Lescott who is about three times richer for leaving the Blues..!
The coach trip to Madrid had taken it's toll on Benitez!
