“The one thing I will say to our fans is to think carefully before buying tickets for the League Cup game because we do not want them spending their money and then we decide there is no option but to use only young players in the tie”. Just who does Kenny Dalglish think he’s talking to? Supporters of Liverpool, or of anyone else, don’t go to watch players – they go because their team are playing, and the content of the jerseys is irrelevant. But given that he’s so fucking concerned about their money, maybe he should arrange for his bosses to demand a little less of it per home ticket. Or spunk less of it on the likes of Carroll and Downing. Or take less of it himself.
Mike Ashley owns Sports Direct, whose main European competitor is Decathlon, a French company. Thus Newcastle buy French players, who can then be marketed in France as “Sports Direct”, wearing the tat and speaking in French, allowing Ashley to sell more towelling socks and tracksuits. Genius and beauty, all mixed.
Aside from the fact that the captain, skipper, figurehead, leader and absolutely enormous, indescribably big personality is under investigation for alleged racist abuse, and aside from the spanking England are going to get (Spain are 10/11 to win, folks), the whole poppy debate has also obscured Baroness Ford’s accusation that Tottenham used a team of private investigators to surveil all fourteen members of her Olympic Park Legacy Committee. It’s hard to know where to begin with this one. If she’s making it up, then that is mental, if she isn’t making it up, then that is mental, if she isn’t making it up but it’s not quite true but almost true, then that is mental, and that any football club would want to make a home out of an athletics stadium either not that near or nowhere near where it’s meant to be, is completely mental.
