Keane Off to Another Galaxy and Gary Neville Makes Things Awkward
Well, Sergio Aguero certainly isn’t messing about is he? Lordy. Declared partially fit by Mancini and that, sir, is what £38 million looks like. Right there. Talking of which, I’m not sure Gary Neville is cut out for this punditry lark. Not to say that he can’t be rather insightful at times, it’s just he seems to have based his delivery style on that of the robot maid from Rocky IV. Under the glare of the neon-blue studio lights, he looked less likely to fluff his lines as he was short-circuit. Very uncomfortable viewing. The interview with the City boss was particularly excruciating.
Andy Gray. Now there’s a man who knew how to relax in front of the camera. He even went as far as to enjoy himself on a Monday night. But then, I guess, that was part of the problem. That and being an unspeakable berk.
Meanwhile in Tottenhamshire, Robbie Keane has finally sealed a move Stateside. I say finally as it seems it’s always been an aspiration of the tumbling Oirishman to play MLS football. You might even go as far to say…it’s been a dream of his for quite some time.
“I have always wanted to come and play in the MLS so it’s the perfect combination for me and a dream come true.”
Joking aside, I don’t wish him any particular harm at the Galaxy. In fact I wish him well. The move to Liverpool may’ve broken him as a player but he did some sterling work in the shirt prior to that. I remember a few years back, against Stoke if I’m not mistaken, when John Motson asked whether anyone could think of a better player in the League than Robbie Keane. Of course everyone could and Motson was clearly having a senile moment, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t a tremendous frontman in his heyday. Does it?
No, it doesn’t.
