Early and late goals saw the Championship's match of the day end 1-1 at Carrow Road where Michael Chopra set up Jon Parkin to give Cardiff City a seventh-minute lead against Norwich City with a meaty drive.

And while the success of Charlie Swan testified to the enduring advantages of youth – at 42, he was younger than all bar one of the "Leger Legends" – the abiding lesson of their calling remains that there's no point growing older, if you don't grow wiser.

Sounds like Nassim Nicholas Taleb has fallen out with someone else. The Black Swan author had a very public spat last year with Myron Scholes, the economist who won a Nobel Prize for his work on options pricing. His latest Twitter updates suggest his mood has not improved since then. "My only definition of success: when all those you hate are dead (or, even better, published by Penguin Classics or La Pléiade)," he offered yesterday. What's that all about?
