Match of the Yesterday

Time travel is very popular these days, judging by the enormous popular and critical success of the Doctor Who revival. But I was surprised to find that it was used to write the 'live up-to-date Coca Cola Championship team news' in yesterday's Sun:

"Matt Piper could play his last game for Leicester before a possible £2.5 million move to Sunderland but Andy Impey will miss out with a knee injury" (12 August 2006, p.63).

Both players left Leicester in 2002 and 2004 respectively, and are more or less retired from football these days. I doubt many foxes fans were disappointed by their exclusion from the squad. The actual team in this timeline and this reality beat Ipswich 3-1, which is not only a relief, but something that Piper and Impey never managed.
