A quick post today because I am writing this yesterday and I am tired from having to do back to back meetings for more than 13 minutes today.
Things that are interesting today.
Alexis Sanchez plods out of United to Inter Milan on a loan deal for the season, with no view to a permanent deal.
Makes you laugh. Money aside, he escaped one shit tip and landed in another… but in Manchester. The most important thing he did at United was start the movement for BIG twitter announcement videos. I often ask myself, if Sanchez didn’t do that, would Kos have done what he did for his new club? I am often very bored when I ponder this thought.
Eddie scored again… against Stoke, but he couldn’t prevent a loss. Still, three goals is quite the haul. This is HUGELY valuable for him. The lad needs 20 goals. That’ll set him on the path to being taken very seriously next summer. GOOD FOR YOU EDDIE, WE LOVE YOU.
We’re getting a SECOND transfer deadline day to look forward to. Spurs will be panicking Aurier, Vertonghen, Eriksen or Toby will leave. We’ll be cracking open the Pringles and Peroni PRAYING that Mustafi and Elneny fetch at least £30m. I won’t be happy if Nacho moves on, but god damn, if the old goat gets a 3 year deal, I’ll shed a little tear for myself, and maybe misery eat that Vienetta I have in the freezer. God bless you Nacho. I have a fun story to tell you if he goes because I’ve met him and I am not his best friend, but I’d say I’m his best passing acquaintance. That make sense?
Bolton FC. Going under. Sad face.
Jokes aside, it really is miserable that all those football fans don’t have a place to go to watch football. I don’t quite know how I’d deal with that sort of loss. It’d be a death that’d ruin the sport for you, forever. You can’t suddenly start supporting another team. You’d forever watch football as a passionless neutral. You’d have to start telling people at parties you mostly supported England.
… worse. You’d have to get a Harlequins season ticket and tell people how they have a really nice craft beer you can drink in the stands.
‘Billy, to be honest, I just think rugby fans are better natured’
You’d end up buying a gilet, then you’d start to see the practicalities of a coffee flask (because you can finally take one in the ground because you’d stop seeing it as a missile), then it’d all be over when you start packing sandwiches for the game.
My god. Football needs to start taking these abysmal owners more seriously.
I did a damn fine podcast. There’s some interesting gossip for you to digest about how Arsenal funded this summer… I put it in the middle so you’d listen intently to the content. I need you to like my work. My personality is so wrapped up in grown men giving me attention on the internet it’s embarrassing. I defo would have been a Babestation girl in another life.
