What the hell is going on in the world? Terrible news about Jo Cox. Shot for her beliefs. You see it go on elsewhere in the world, but to have something that horrendous happen over EU membership is beyond the pale. So very, very sad.
Anyway, back onto something more joyful.
STICKING IT TO THE WELSH.
Thought our boys were fairly respectful before the game. Old Gareth Bale wasn’t so. I also thought the ESPN coverage was unfair too… the narrative of the ‘plucky Welsh’ was boring. But beautiful.
That Welsh guy in the crowd crying at 1-1 was beyond embarrassing… then in the 91st minute, Daniel Sturridge drops in with a big bag of goods and steals their moment of glory away.
AMAZING. ESPN, why did you not cut back to crying man?
Interesting that 2 years on from our last dismal showing at a major tournament, we’re still a side that lacks creativity and vision. Our system is turgid and uninspired. Our manager is pretty clueless too. He had a problem with an unproductive midfield not feeding his forward players… so he brings on 3 forwards?
That game was crying out for a Jack Wilshere to build play out from the back. Erick Dier is just a thug with limited skill, Delle Alli looks like a fish up a tree and Wayne Rooney looks like a fat old striker who has been asked to play in midfield in Sunday league because he doesn’t have the legs up front.
Still, Jamie Vardy scored a fox in the box like goal.
Aaron Ramsey looked pretty good playing a system that tried for discipline
I missed the French game, but it didn’t sound like Giroud had a good game. Payet though… so glad Wenger dropped a, ‘we thought about signing him too’ on Bein sport earlier. We said no because we were well stocked with similar talent.
Anyway, still no movement on the transfer front… so I’ll call it a day!
Catch you tomorrow you beautiful people.
