Tom Dick
 adj.— «“That performance was good from us. We felt we did enough to win the game and were in a good position. We were disappointed to lose a goal to a set-piece in the end but it was only three points at stake, that’s all you get. There’s still an awful long way to go.” The winding road takes in Upton Park this afternoon, when Carrick has to hope that by tea-time it will be his old club who are left feeling, in the local parlance, Tom Dick.» —“Carrick happy to be upstaged at latest reunion” by Steve Tongue Independent (United Kingdom) Dec. 17, 2006.
