We know, we know.
So much is happening in the world of football and we’re posting items as frequently as, well, as very backasswards neglectful blog posterettes would be.
Stay with us, remain patient, we will be back to business Tuesday evening.
In the meantime, lets revisit our favourite World Cup 2006 memory… the boxers or briefs debate. Ah, good times.
An undercover sting operation by the BBC is making very serious allegations about corruption in the Premiership. At least one agent and three teams were targeted and it’s not looking good. The agent is reported to be leaving the country following the probe.
The skinny: the clubs are alleged to have broken industry rules by “tapping up” players – approaching them without permission from the club they’re contracted to. There are allegations of backhanders to officials. The world of footy agents is in a spin over who’s likely to be implicated.
The game hasn’t had a saga-drama like this since George Graham, the Arsenal boss was fired in 1995 for accepting
He’s a lean, lanky beanpole of a fellow, and his on/off girlfriend gives us hives, but Peter Crouch is emerging as a great talent on the England squad.
Thought he could only score goals, swear like a scurvy-infected sailor and sleep with 80-year-old prostitutes on his downtime? You thought wrong, dear friends.
With the recent release of his autobiography, “My Story So Far”, Mr. Rooney is now an accomplished author.
(Take that all you useless talented non-prostitute-visiting writers trying to get a book deal!)
With the help of ghostwriter (okay, the real author), Hunter Davies, this is the first book in a five book deal for Rooney.
It’s good to know there’s a career option open for him if the whole footy thing doesn’t pan out.
Not everyone is behind the new scribe: Rooney’s former manager David Moyes (Everton) has threatened to sue over some of the things Rooney says in the book, in particular, that he “forced” Rooney out of the club.
In keeping with our respect for international, local and outer space holidays, religious, public or otherwise, Kickette is “celebrating” Labour Day by not working.
See you Tuesday!
