Those are the rumours swilling around the internet this morning. I have no idea where it’s come from, but it’s a pretty crazy rumour.
He’s a legend and he wins major honours wherever he is, just not sure at his age (33), he’s really suited the league. He’d be great fun though. He’s an outrageous talent, just think he was more relevant 5 years ago. Still, he could be our Henrik Larsson? He’d be a great teacher as well…
I took in the Champions League final yesterday (a day late). Great game. It was a lot tighter than I thought it was going to be. Juve gave a good account of themselves, but I didn’t ever really feel they had it in them to compete.
Barcelona just pay with such a fluid pace. I d0n’t think the Enrique iteration of the club is quite at the level it was under Pep, but it’s certainly very functional. That front three are such a sight to behold.
When I was watching it, I did ponder how British clubs get it so wrong? Barca are ALWAY that good, well, it seems that way. Juventus were relegated 8 years ago, now they’re swinging punches at the top table again. Why can’t we get there? If Arsene Wenger is so good, why can’t he make our team like that? What are we missing?
What is it? Why do they just get it right so consistently at the elite clubs?
Morata looked like a big miss as well… kind of a bit like a lighter younger faster version of Giroud. Really good little player. Though Pogba didn’t dominate the game, he certainly looked like the only player who’d get into the Barca team. Really talented specimen. Reminds me so much of Vieira. He just looks so comfortable on the ball.
I wonder if Arsenal are going to raid the mega teams this summer for the cast offs? I mean, I’d love to snap up Cech. PSG are going to have to shift some names on. Madrid always shift on the primest offcuts.
Interesting that Barca, Liverpool (Danny Ings and James Milner. LOL), United and Juventus are already tying up deals. I hope Arsenal are pushing forward with plans. I know a lot at the club bugger off on holiday around now. Hopefully Ivan and co are executing plans that have been formed for a while… that’d be nice, wouldn’t it?
This summer, I’ll be mixing it up with the writing. James and Alex will be taking on more writing and Simone will be weighing in as well. Stops it getting dull in the dry months!
Right, have a grand one!
Finally, a bit of an ask. Blood cancer is a total shitter, but it can be helped if you have a blood match… which is where you come in. If you could sign up here, and donate your blood stem cells, you could save the life of someone… it only takes two minutes and it’d be amazing if you could help (especially if you’re between 17-30).
