Land the size of two snooker tables sells for £120,000

A plot of land no bigger than two snooker tables has reportedly sold at auction for £120,000. 100 people inquired about buying the 440 square foot garden in Fulham, according to the Evening Standard. Demand was so high, it was snapped up before it got to auction.

'Time to impress', says Crystal Palace caretaker manager

Keith Millen said: "It really is a challenge. It is the fixture we looked at when it came out at the start of the season. It is the reason we worked so hard last year to get promoted.

"That Wembley day seems a long way off now, how quickly things can change. But I just want the lads to enjoy the occasion, they are not doing it for me as I have told them I'm not looking for the job.

"A new manager will be coming in and it is down to them to start impressing the new manager, whoever that may be, and I think that starts on Saturday."
