terry venables

Hola. Hope you are well.

Let’s start with what’s going on at Liverpool. No one seems that sure what’s going on off the field. It appears that the board has sanctioned the sale of the club to John W Henry and the New England Sports Ventures. Although the current owners of Liverpool, especially Tom Hicks are contesting this. I’m no business expert, but it does seem quite messy. Naturally, most Liverpool fans will be glad to see the back of Hicks and Gillett although some are sceptical what with the new owners also being American. My advise to the protesting Liverpool fans is to keep hold of your banners cos if John W Henry proves to be as bad as the previous owners, the fans can dust down their ‘Yanks Out’ banners. I however am more optimistic on this matter, as history has taught me to trust any American with ‘W’ as their middle initial.

On the pitch Liverpool don’t seem to be doing any better. Having been beaten by Blackpool, the word crisis was being attached to Liverpool. I feel a bit sorry for Blackpool because it does seem Liverpool’s crisis stems largely from losing to Blackpool. It’s like Blackpool are seen as the yardstick of sh*tness and therefore to be beaten by Blackpool means there needs to be an enquiry. I’ve noticed this in education. Whenever a report comes out which says, white working class boys are bottom of the pile, people want to know why this has happened and more importantly why they have fallen below that of their black counterparts. Maybe it’s something to do with having Black in the title, Black boys/Blackpool, who knows?

In the last few posts I’ve mentioned prostitutes, it’s not because I’m slightly obsessed with them, it’s just that there seems to be an unusually high number of footballers being linked with them in the last few months. I’m not sure why this is? Maybe the recession has forced more women into the ‘oldest profession’. If this is the case let’s hope the coalition government’s decision to cut public services so severely and so quickly doesn’t lead to a double-dip recession or we might be overrun with prostitutes.

I mention this because since my last post there’s been further prostitute developments. Firstly, prostitute Irma Nici claimed to have slept with David Beckham on 5 occasions. He strenuously denies this and goes as far as saying he has never even met her. I’m no lawyer (nor business expert as we learnt earlier) but this does look like a big difference of opinion. Unless of course you can bed someone without ever having met the person. I’m sure there would be many people happy if this were possible.

The other prostitute news is quite sad, as Jennifer Thompson’s dad suffered a heart attack. No one knows for certain why this happened, but there’s a good chance that all the publicity surrounding his daughter didn’t help. It now makes me wonder if it’s worth allowing Wayne Rooney pay you for sex. (allegedly)

And Finally… Terry Venables has been linked with becoming the new Welsh manager (see here). I think the story is based on nothing other than the fact that Terry Venables with his grey hair and grey goatee (see pic at top of bl;og)  is morphing into Welsh legend Tom Jones (see here)

Til next time, stay safe!
