Anyone excited?

June 10, 2017

Considering this Scotland v England game is a World Cup qualifier it seems really low-key. I don’t know if it’s because it feels like the football season has been over for a while. Or maybe it’s because the election has re-directed our attention, or likewise the two recent terrorist attacks. Or could it be that both teams are a bit rubbish.

I could of course be wrong and most people are really looking forward to this game. If that is you let me know via the comments button @viewfromthetrev

Sounding Out

June 8, 2017

Tapping up strikes me as quite an ugly word. I much prefer ‘sounding out’. I only mention this in light of Liverpool  issuing an apology to Southampton over an alleged illegal approach for Virgil van Dijk.

I imagine this kind of thing happens in most transfers. I equate it to getting your mate to find out if a girl/boy likes you. In the long run it saves time and potential embarrassment of having to chase people who have no interest in you.

Perhaps Southampton were just peeved that in recent seasons Liverpool have repeatedly bought their players. If this is the case then maybe it would be more advantageous for Liverpool to ‘sound out’ Southampton’s chief scout and miss out the middle man.

When football meets terrorism

June 7, 2017

On Saturday I went to my local pub to watch the Champions League Final with my mate. After the game we ended up chatting football to two random Spurs fans for 10-15 mins.

After we left the pub, we went our separate ways. I went back to my flat and directed my friend to London Bridge.

If we had left the pub straight after the game there’s a good chance my mate would have been caught up in the attack. Who knew that the conversation with these randoms would prove so important? Certainly not me and certainly not me at the time.

No offence to Take Me Out

June 2, 2017

I have a bone to pick with the FA.

If the FA Cup final had kicked off at 3pm I would have been able to watch it in peace as the other half and child had gone out for the day.

However with the kick off being 5:30pm, I ended up having to watch whilst making the baby’s dinner, feeding him, getting him out of his clothes for a bath and putting him to bed. This is not an ideal way to watch football.

For what it’s worth, I don’t think the FA Cup final should ever have to compete for viewers with Take Me Out (no offence to Take Me Out).
