Sorry for the late post, I’ve a lot on the work plate at the moment. So this will be brief.
So… Yaya Toure and the birthday cake. What a joker. Disrespected on his birthday which his agent described as ‘sick’. Footballers eh? What a way to sour a great season.
Luis Suarez has busted his knee and requires surgery before the World Cup. I know on the face of it, I should be pleased, but really the World Cup is about the best players on the planet. I’ll be quite disappointed if he’s not playing.
This is my big worry about Brazil. Loads of travel, thin air, hot weather and poor pitches. What sort of a state are the players going to return in? We have a legacy of players returning a mess. Cesc Fabregas always used to come back crocked, I remember Dennis Bergkamp came back a physical and mental wreck after missing that penalty in 1998… basically, the World Cup is not good for players.
Talking about Cesc… there’s talk Barca want rid. Arsenal fans are firming up over the possibility that we might land him. Sorry to break it to you, but as I said last season, I think Ozil has put paid to that idea. We don’t need a Cesc anymore. What we need is players who can be fed by creative geniui… Our summer should be dominated by powerful midfielders and wide players with devastating pace. We don’t need anymore small technical players.
… that’s me and you done on the subject. I won’t hear another word.
So what else is floating around in the world of football?
Paul Scholes has been mouthing off in the press. Anyone else getting slightly irritated by the class of 92? They’re like a gang of bullies. My fear is just as Hanson, Lawro and the Liverpool mafia make way in the world of football punditry, we have a new batch of same club mafia coming in. There’s literally no creativity from TV channels when it comes to media mix. You just know the new panel on MOTD is going to be infested with ex Mancs.
Bore. Me. Later.
In other news, Luis Enrique has taken over at Barcelona. One season of zero success and the manager is out. They’ve gone curve ball again with their choice. Enrique was a great, he’s done his apprenticeshio and now he’s getting the chance to rebuild Barca. He’s an exciting appointment. Barca are very good with their infrastructure and their choices of manager are never blurred by ‘big name’ requirements. I hope Arsenal follow suit when we start looking at new managers in 2048.
I’ve not much else to talk about, tomorrow I might start digging into player performances. Apologies for the short post.
Also, if you e-mail me and it takes a while to get back, that’s not me being rude, I’m just slammed at the moment… I’ll get back in the end.
HAVE A GREAT DAY AND SAY HI TO THE PERSON SITTING NEXT YOU FROM ME AND DON’T EXPLAIN WHO I AM. x
