I’m in a place called Hvar. Something really bad happened. Like, harrowing. The Internet died. The whole island, cut off. No. Digital. Access. Well, unless I paid £8 per MB. Messed up eh? What’s the deal with The Hig? How is Ancelotti feeling about keeping him? Have we signed anymore kids? How is Ivan doing, I haven’t Facebooked him in 2 days. What’s going on in world news? Is Chambo in the Showbiz section of the Daily Mail again?
I had no idea.
I’m penning this yesterday. What is interesting in Croatia (Split) is the passion for Hajduk Split. Graffiti of the club badge is everywhere (in Split). It’s on buildings, on car park floors, on people’s windows… it’s like a communist state of football. One ruling team and everyone accepts that. Football seems to be a huge passion here, it’s far more visible than it is in London. Is that because the only alternative sport is female body building? Who knows. All I’m saying is female body building is boring.
… they play basketball as well. Pour me a second cup of ‘bore me later’…
So outside football what could we talk about?
Oh, £2 a beer here.
Internet is back.
How about this for a story that I was told a few weeks ago… Arsenal have been pushing a big Spanish club that they might already be talking to about an upset world class centre back. I won’t name names, but we were prepared to go very big for this guy. Chances of it materialising are slim to none now Mourinho has gone, but interesting all the same.
Kieran Gibbs is upset he was overlooked for England. I don’t blame him, he’s been solid this season. He’s still a bit dim positionally, but he’s improved hugely considering where he was at the start of last season. It’s a good thing he was over looked for England. If there’s a weakness in his game, it’s his fitness. He needs to be able to handle 40 games a season. At the moment, that never seems to happen which is why his understudy is a top Spanish international… not a youth team player.
The Hig’s brother has come out and stated his sibling is too expensive for Juventus… and that if Tevez has gone to City, he’s likely to move to Arsenal. Hooray.
Final piece today is about Wayne Rooney… the Star have a baseless article about Arsenal continuing to look at him… Ok, we know there’s interest, but that story hasn’t really shifted. The new season starts soon… I’m concerned we’ve not made moves in other areas. We need to start bolstering. Keeper, centre back and a box to box midfielder. Where are they? There’s not only one player on the planet….
P.S heard the rumour flying around about Theo head butting Aaron Lennon in Las Vegas? Hilarious if true…
