You Keane on knockin but you can’t come in

December 30, 2014

Hola. Hope you are well.

One of my favourite football stories of recent times was that of Roy Keane being seen outside Tom Cleverley’s house, ringing the doorbell for 15 mins before leaving without having spoken to Cleverley.

According to reports it was because Keane was angry about leaks to the media about supposed bust ups at Villa whilst Keane was assistant manager at the club.

I don’t know if Tom was at home when Keane was ringing his doorbell but even if I knew Roy Keane was coming to my house I’d pretend to be out. I quite like Roy Keane but if I ever had to meet him I think I would do it in a very public place.

Til next time, stay safe!

Ich bin ein Berliner

December 16, 2014

Hallo. Hoffen, dass Sie gut sind.

I happened to go to a Union Berlin game, a couple of weeks ago, it was a birthday present.

During the game in which Berlin lost 4-1 to Munich 1860, there was a tannoy announcement that a young boy was separated from his uncle. This announcement took place when Munich were 2-0 up, which made me wonder if at some point the uncle had to send a text to the parents saying, “We’re losing 2-0 and I seemed to have lost your son”.

I’ve not followed this story up and hope it ended with them being reunited, or I will look sick for bringing it up.

Anyway feel free to let me know if you’ve lost something that didn’t belong to you and how did the owners take it?
