Martin O'Neill: Manager of West Ham

I believe Martin O'Neill will become manager of West Ham over the next few days. I know his friends have been telling the press that he is not interested in the job. On Thursday night Paddy Power had him at 20-1 to become the next manager. Last night so much money was taken on his appointment he was at 2-1. Clearly, the negotiators and their selected friends are making some holiday money.

Hérita N'Kongolo Ilunga

According to Wikipedia, Hérita N'Kongolo Ilunga was born in Kinshasa on 25th February 1982. I wonder if the Congo record births of its citizens? Rumour has it he is really 38 rather than 28 years old. I must say, that since he signed his four year contract with West Ham in April 2009 he looks and plays like someone at the very end of their career. One wag has suggested he should be carbon dated? Is it possible to work out accurately how old someone is?
