Well Wayne Rooney has decided to throw in the towel at Manchester United.Plenty of reasons are floating about and it depends on what paper you read.But I honestly can't see the lad going abroad.
Can you imagine him,and his clan sipping a really nice Red in Madrid ? Eating some wonderful tapas late at night in Barcelona ? No I think not to be honest as It's an alien concept for the lad.Very few footballers from these shores have done well on the continent.Lineakar,Hughes,Acrhibald,the late Johnny Charles did well and integrated and enjoyed the wonderful things that were on offer.
Beckham,Rush(who apparently had tins of bake beans shipped over),Blisset and Barnes could not adapt.Me I would love the chance to live and work in Spain or Italy.The clothes and the way of life are wonderful.
So here is the lad giving a good cheerio to the masses that flock from Surrey to Old Trafford every week.
So where will he go ? It's either Man Citeh,as little Colleen loves the North West of England.Or will it be a Chelsea with his new best mate and all round good egg and great ambassador for the game John Terry ?If you see this lot around either ground in January,please take care.The Rooney clan are with you.
The whole premiership football thing now is mad.I've said it before I hope we go down this year.As when we were last down for a couple of years it was a great laugh both home and away.Talk to fans in the lower leagues,and they can see through the bullshit of the "Number One League" in the world.
Not had time to get on the bank this week.Saturday is around the corner and I'm not sure what to target yet ?Pike ? Perch ? Barbel ? And I must now offer my condolences to the Gruffalow who lost a large Barbel on a southern river today.Now "Gruff" has had them before to over 16lb,and he had a hook pull at the net today.As sorry as I am Gruff,but I cast my mind back to July when you laughed at me on the Hampshire Avon.
But fuck me as I type this he has just had a 12 plus.Well done mate you have now right screwed this blog up.And it was -1 down here for the last few nights.Good going and shame you lost the other one,that you say was much larger.:-)
