And just like that, these pointless post-season international friendlies are over.
At the time of writing I am on the Jubilee line home. I am 6 beers in and have no idea what the England score is. Not do I care. All I know is it is over now.
What a horribly pointless tournament.
Every international manager ended up playing massively changed XIs as they realised players had just run out of steam. Time to get rid of the tournament.
In other news Tottenham look set to sign Yves Bissouma.
I was always uncomfortable with our links to him.
As far as I know the fella has not yet been cleared of some horrendous charges.
Brighton have clearly been pimping him around England in the hope of cashing in.
The scary thing about football at times is there is always a club willing to take a player on regardless of what he has allegedly done. This is an example of that.
Bissouma is still facing some really crazy charges – yet Spurs are paying £25m on him.
It might not end up in tears; but I am just glad Arsenal showed little interest.
It is that time of year where I have to remind people to ignore Twitter ITK’s.
In the last week, I have seen some fella with 50k+ followers claim that Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal is “nearly done”, that Gabriel Jesus to Chelsea is “nearly done” and the Gabriel Jesus to Tottenham is “nearly done”.
Questions need to be asked about these middle-aged fellas that spend their days in their bedroom shouting at a camera in the hope teenage boys follow them.
We won the cricket. I’m in Canning Town. I think. It’s still light outside. Might go for a beer.
Enjoy your Wednesday
