    This is getting very worrying.
  3. I think it's a bit unfair to speculate that Bale is someone who plays professional football but doesn't actually like the game. By the way, David Batty is the best example of this. He had so little interest in the game that when he missed the decisive penalty in the shoot out against Argentina, one former player (I can't remember where I heard this) recalls going into the changing room after the game, and there was David Beckham in tears, completely inconsolable, and Batty sitting there already showered and changed, waiting to go home. Anyway, I don't think Bale is one of those guys. I used to work with a mate of his and he reckoned he loved the game. This was before the Real Madrid move, though. That miniscule bit of insight aside, in my opinion not much of what has gone on in the last few years is his fault. He started picking up injuries (the insertion of quotation marks around this word is classic Real Madrid propaganda) and Real seem to regret giving him his massive last contract. Since then they have been publicly bad-mouthing him, in some kind of weird campaign to get him to leave, or to save face, or whatever it is they are trying to do. He'd have to be a robot not to react to that, and his reaction seems to have been to hit Real right in the wallet by telling them he was willing to sit out his contract and collect his £600,000 a week if they won't pick him. I kind of understand that. It's telling that this sudden willingness to move comes hot on the heels of two poor performances for Wales. I think he's realised that he can't sit at home, play a bit of golf, and rock up and play international football. He's realised his situation is damaging to Wales, so he's keener to find a solution that involves him playing. The big question though is whether he's still physically up to it. His game has always been based around his physical attributes - his pace and power. If he's lost that, or if he spends half the season on the treatment table, then Spurs will lose out. I hope he tears it up, personally.
  4. What is going on with our transfers? Apparently we've given up on Sancho, we're set to miss out on Bale AND Reguilon who are both going to Spurs, and Thiago is going to Liverpool.
  5. Here's a little graphic from the Swiss Ramble illustrating how much the various Premier League clubs' owners have put into their teams over the last five seasons. As you can see, our owners are leeches who have sucked almost a hundred million out of the club. They've basically stolen the amount it would have taken to sign Sancho.
  6. Didn't Di Maria also spit in the face of an opponent? Disgusting enough at the best of times, but with the pandemic going on, and also considering it was Di Maria's first game back after actually fucking contracting Covid, it's genuinely next-level cuntery.

    If we lose Buttler I might start to worry a bit. 7.5 an over can suddenly become 11 an over at this stage if you lose a couple of wickets and the new batsmen take a couple of balls to find the pace of the pitch.

    I'm hoping Malan gets another 50, so he can maintain the best average in T20 internationals in the world. I've always said he's better than Kholi.

    Bat before wicket? My favourite thing about it was how exactly it hit the very centre of the bat and didn't hit the pad at any point. It was a strange appeal, never mind a review. England seem to be doing alright regardless.
  10. Kyle Walker is the dumbest man alive.
  11. We're not going to actually wear that kit on the pitch are we?
  12. Unfortunately the whole squad now has to self-isolate because the manager caught coronavirus off some guy who was delivering stadium passes.
