England’s route to the final is certainly looking… you know… not the hardest?
Can we say it?
Is football… coming… home?
Who knows, Colombia are monsters and the karma gods were drawing pictures in my dreams of David Ospina saving 3 penalties in a shootout moment of glory last night. I think we have a very stern test against a very unpredictable team there. Croatia, despite playing pretty poorly last night still look the favourites from our side. A team choked full of quality that you’d have to imagine would make our midfield look a touch pedestrian.
Scanning around the matches that excited Arsenal fans, we were not all transfixed on the number 14 during the Uraguay game? Lucas Torreira, what a player. The guy held his position, he ran for days and he put his head on the line to make a tackle on the floor. We’ve needed that sort of die-for-the-cause mentality for many a moon, and we’ve been crying out for a DM who actually wants to play there. I am very excited about the move, though I’ll always have that dull feeling in the pit of my stomach that worries we’re going to fuck it up royally at the last minute. Still, his dad seems confident he’ll at least end up in London.
“As soon as the World Cup ends, Lucas will go to London for his medical.”
There hasn’t been much movement on the transfer front, though I do suspect now we’ve hit July 1st we’ll some names roll in. The Sokratis deal has been taking a while, I can only assume that because of the July 1st date. No idea what that means in football terms. Is it the fiscal year in football? Is it something to do with a clause? I have no idea. Just stop pestering me about it.
There are strong rumours that Arsenal are being linked to Pavon for £26m. The Boca winger is going to land a move to Europe this summer, just can’t see that being Arsenal. Not often we raid directly from South American, but I’d welcome someone of his talent. He has some of that immense power Sanchez has boasted and he’d certainly ramp up the South American vibes in the dressing room.
Finally, great to read that Spurs fans are feeling the full force of a club that is now charging some of the most expensive season tickets in the world
Shite seats up with the gods for a whopping £2200… they’ve even had the cheek to charge a £2.25 transaction fee.
Welcome to the new world Spurs, wait until your excellent manager leaves and you start dropping down the table breaking even every year.
Right, short post today. Good luck Mexico today!
