It’s Wednesday and it’s hot AF in New York. I might not have ‘soccer’ in my back yard, but I have a suntan lotion as part of my morning routine.
ALSO, this summer’s Euro’s are going to be pretty damn excellent. Namely, because my afternoons at work will be pitted with the European action, then in the evenings, I’ll be treated to COPA AMERICA action. Also, the final is in New York, which is bloody excellent.
My summer orgie of football is going to be wild. I also get to watch the Olympics on a normal timescale, WITHOUT the risk of Zika.
100 words in and all I’ve spoken about is me? How damn f*cking rude.
What do we have for you this morning!
Well, Carrasco of Atleti is being linked to us. I mean, it’s a bit of a push if you ask me. He cost the Spaniards £18m last summer, he hasn’t majorly popped this season, but he’s been better in the second half and he obviously scored in the Champions League final…
He’d be great for Arsenal, for the record, I actually scouted him 2 seasons ago, therefore I own the right to talk about him. He’s sublimely skilled, has 140 competitive games under his belt, and likely would render Chambo or Theo surplus for sure. He’s only 22 as well, I’d imagine he has plenty of room to grow into a bit of a monster of a player. The sort Wenger might turn into a striker.
We’re being linked with Jeison Murillo of Inter Milan. He’s Colombian. I have no idea if he’s any good. Inter are basically purging their players this summer because of their fair play deficit… so I expect this to just be a leaked agent story.
There isn’t a whole lot of other things out there, so I’m cutting it short, I’ll catch ya’ll tomorrow!
