Well, well, well… aside from the game. What an absolute shame it is to see football violence creeping back into the beautiful game.
Such a very weird concoction of things going off here. The migrant crisis in Europe is fuelling extreme public reactions both sides of the coin. The Russians have been making political power plays stoking nationalist fires. You have the English, who let’s be fair, simply don’t travel well… and even less so when they’re in the middle of a Brexit. You also have local French mobs out to stir the trouble pot.
Well, there’s not much news doing the rounds on Jamie Vardy. Have my doubts as to whether Ray Parlour has any inside line on what’s going on with the Leicester striker. I guess we just have to hold strong and hope Arsenal have a clue what’s going on and if it’s looking bad, we’d best hope we have another ace up our sleeve. I mean, let’s not kid ourselves Vardy was an ‘ace’. That was the lazy man signing. Hopefully we have something more interesting.
Today sees the kick off for Euro 2016. Really looking forward to this. France face Romania, which will be exciting because they’re one of the tournament favourites… what makes it even more interesting is that Olivier Giroud seems to have perked up recently finding the sort of goalscoring form that’ll attract a PSG to make a horrible mistake later in the summer!
Man, transfer windows are almost as draining as an Arsenal February!
So, the news emanating out of the England camp is that Jamie Vardy is 80% likely to stay with Leicester. Fairplay if that’s the case. He’s in for a rotten season next year and he’ll have scuppered any chance of moving to a major club. That, I have no doubt about.
