Football fever

Who would be Nigel Knowles? DLA’s emperor was on a break from all the Piper Rudnick and Germany hoopla last month when he found himself embroiled in the biggest party Greece has seen since the Zorba the Greek Oscar celebration. The Greek Eleven, having just returned from their footballing triumph at Euro 2004, decamped at Knowles’ Crete beach resort. Reports that after his brush with the footy stars Knowles is considering a career change to become a beach keepy-uppy champion remain unsubstantiated.
