Hey, hey party people!
Remember when people used to do that?
So many good times were had off the back of that ad. The reason I’m putting that on you is because I saw it yesterday and I can’t stop doing it. You need to suffer it as well. Next time someone calls, hit them with it. Nostalgic phone answerring is what it’s all about this summer!
So, yesterday was a fun round of football. Well, the Germany France game wasn’t. I kind of feels like the Germans are just picking their way to the World Cup final in a very efficient mechanical way. The game wasn’t particularly inspiring, the French looked totally runied by the end of the game. 1-0. Kind of boring considering the state of the world cup so far.
Imagine Matuidi and Pogba in your midfield…
The Brazil game was a bit more out of my comprehension. The ref was very lenient, there were about 900 fouls before a booking occurred. Neymar looks like he’s out of the tournament because he was smashed in the back with a viscious knee. All very unsporting. But this is the world cup, the stakes are high, players in South America are brutalists when they want to be… Neymar weighs about the same as a 14 year old girl… he can’t cope with brutality. Does make you wonder if he’d be able to handle the Premier League.
Anyway, Brazil and Germany through. Shame, I was totally loving the Columbian vibe.
Above is my first Bloomberg appearance. Talking Colombia vs Brazil. I’m on at 4mins 25. Some other guy in there called Sol Campbell. He got more air time than me for some reason. My predictions were wildly correct as well.
Transfers are starting to get red hot. Debuchy is due a medical. He’s pretty much done and dusted. I think he’s a good signing. I don’t think it’s kicking us on massively, but you know what, he’s a right back, not many right backs in the world can kick you on.
Schneiderlin is also on the hit list. I don’t know about the truth behind this one, however, we have previously been interested in him and Wenger will defintiely move for an Arteta replacement this window.
Sanchez rumours are kicking up a gear. I’m not sure Barca can mess around too much becuase they need £70m for Suarez. Him leaving Liverpool is crazy. I thought he’d at least stay until next season, but I guess £70m would go quite a way under Rodgers. He could really bolster his squad. Where he plans to get a striker is another question totally… not many around that could replace him, that’s for sure.
Bodes well for us next season if he fails there, not sure Sturridge will be the same player without a partner in crime like Suarez.
Thomas Vermaelen is gearing up to leave the club as United hone in on the £12m rated Belgian <- that sentence was so damn journo
Interesting thing abotu Thomas is that United weren’t the only Manchester club who were interested. I think we’re making a mistake letting him go. However, it’s clear he’d never be able to work under Wenger again. I think he was badly treated last season. He should have been given more game time. He went from captain to zero trust inside a season. We should have rotated him.
Someone told me Wenger said on French TV he’s not a big believer in squad rotation. For me, this attitude totally misses a big chunk of human psychology. Namely, that if you always pick the same 11 in a 25 man squad, you’re going to upset people. Then, when they’re called upon, they’re not motivated or mentally ready. He’s good enough to be rotated. It’s crazy he wasn’t.
Right, I don’t think I’ve got much more to tell you today! Have a grand day, I’m seeing the Libertines later, so if I’m not on tomrorow, it’s becuase Pete Docherty made me try things…
