'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Johnson's afro is here to stay...

...for several more month at least!

Glen Johnson has been growing a wonderful mushroom on his head recently, with his fetching 'fro growing all the time. Finally he has revealed the secret behind his barnet to the Pompey site - and we will see this grow even more: 'I've had a bet with my mate. I'm not allowed to cut it until after his stag do - at the end of June!

'He's already got long hair down to his shoulders. So he said if I grow my hair until his stag do, he would dye his blond and plait it.

'I need to see that, so I've agreed to grow mine. I've been growing it for two months and I've got another four-and-a-half months to go.

We are really going to have a throwback to the 70s and 80s by the time he is finished wont we, what a glorious site it will be to see his 'fro bombing up and down the wing!

It has been a 'difficult' couple of days recently with this and that, but reading his comments made me crease up when it was put to him that he grow a moustache to go with the haircut: 'No,' said Johnson emphatically. 'I'd look like a weirdo'...
