Dental health issues

June 28, 2014

Hola. Hope you are well.

I think the FA, team England, Roy Hodgson et al… should send Luis Suarez a present, because instead of people focussing on England limping out of the World Cup with a 0-0 draw against Costa Rica, all the attention was on him for his bite.

Suarez obviously has a problem. If a human adult bites someone once you’d be surprised, if they do it 3 times they’ve got issues, which means no matter how long he’s banned for, without proper supervision, there’s a good chance he’ll do it again.

What I do like about the whole thing is that everyone’s had their say on the matter even Bruce Springsteen. But what I like best is the level of indignation, especially from the pundits, including Alan Shearer who said of Suarez the authorities should “hammer him”. Unfortunately, I’m old enough to remember Shearer kicking Neil Lennon in the face.

I was hoping Suarez would escape punishment, if only to see the reaction afterwards. As a regular listener to football phone-ins, I think some people’s heads would have literally exploded, if he’d have got let off.

Perhaps Luis biggest mistake, apart from the bite itself, was not getting Rebekah Brooks’ legal team on the case. If he had he’d probably be in line for compensation as we speak.

Til next time, stay safe!

We’ve been here before

June 24, 2014

Hola. Hope you are well.

It may have taken a few tournaments but England have finally matched Spain. Unfortunately for England they weren’t to know Spain would be no good at this World Cup.

The omens weren’t good for England, when after Sturridge‘s goal against Italy the physio broke his ankle celebrating. Feel free to let me know of injuries you’ve suffered whilst celebrating a goal, you can contact me via the comments button or on twitter @viewfromthetrev

When England went out of the World Cup in South Africa, their poor World Cup was put down to a negative spirit in the camp, but at least they got out of the group. This time, we were told it was a ‘happy camp’ yet at the time of writing they have no points from 2 games. On this basis it would appear the England players respond better to harsh conditions, so should they make it to the next World Cup, I’m thinking whips and chains.

And Finally… after his 2 goals against England, Luis Suarez seemed genuinely moved, partly because in his mind he’d got revenge for the way he was treated over the Evra and Ivanovic incidents. With this in mind, when and how have you successfully exacted revenge?

Til next time, stay safe!

Why Im supporting Sepp

June 14, 2014

Hola. Hope you are well.

I know it might not be a popular thing to say but I’m quite liking Sepp Blatter. For a start, at a time when people are questioning FIFA on how Qatar won the bid to stage the 2022 World Cup, Sepp announces that he wants to continue as President for another 5 years. You’ve got to admire that kind of chutzpah.

If that wasn’t enough, the other day he suggested football could be played on other planets. Imagine if FIFA awarded a major tournament to Pluto? If that were to happen I don’t think the Sunday Times would be able to handle it.

Til next time, stay safe!

Is Wayne on the wane?

June 11, 2014

Hola. Hope you are well.

Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes had what could be described as a public spat, with Scholes saying Rooney’s past it and Rooney telling Scholes to butt out. With this in mind, all I’m going to ask is Rooney or Scholes? Let me know your thoughts via the comments button or on twitter @viewfromthetrev you can give reasons or not.

One minute Louis Tomlinson of One Direction is seen smoking a ‘herbal cig’, the next he’s set to buy Doncaster Rovers, maybe the 2 things are linked. In honour of Louis have you ever invested in a sports team? The smaller the investment the better.

The World Cup starts tomorrow (should you not be aware) for the opening game of the last World Cup I was at the Minack Theatre (an open air theatre) watching Metamorphosis. Feel free to let me know of opening games you’ve missed or if you’ve been to the Minack Theatre.

And Finally… With all the media outlets asking who’s going to win the World Cup, I want to know who won’t win the World Cup?

Til next time, stay safe!

Jones & Stones

June 1, 2014

Hola. Hope you are well.

So Gareth Bale is a Champions League winner in his first season with Real Madrid. With that it’s probably safe to say he made the right decision to leave Tottenham. With this in mind when have you made the right decision? Let me know via the comments button or on twitter @viewfromthetrev

Talking of Tottenham, they have a new manager with Mauricio Pochettino leaving Southampton, for a 5 year contract at White Hart Lane. I’ve not heard if the interpreter is part of the move.

I’m a little concerned about Southampton. I feel they need to get a manager in before all their best players have been sold. Luke Shaw has been linked with Man Utd and Liverpool seem interested in Lambert, Lallana and Lovren, which makes me wonder if Liverpool’s scouts had a season ticket at St Mary’s last season.

And Finally… It looks like Phil Jones will be fit enough to go to the World Cup, which is good news for him but not for John Stones, who was set to replace Phil if he hadn’t made it. With this in mind, when have you had to rely on someone elses misfortune to achieve your aim?

Til next time, stay safe!
