08.52 – Some Arsenal news. Hurrah. Gilles Grimandi has turned down a move to Japan and is now talking with some clubs in Europe. It’s not much I know, but it’s something….
Some shocking news from the US – top cartoon Futurama is to be cancelled.
Made by Matt Groening, the daddy of the Simpsons, Futurama is funnier, cleverer and more original than most shows on TV these days.
Elsewhere, it seems the FAI have decided that the players don’t want Roy Keane to return to the Irish World Cup squad, while the other R.Keane, Robbie of Leeds Utd, gave Niall Quinn a smack in the head during a 5-a-side game.It’s lovely to see the lads getting along so well. Soon they’ll be teaching the world to sing, in perfect harmony.
Big Niall talks about the Roy Keane situation here, but neglects to mention the fact that a 6’4″ chap like himself got punched by Robbie Keane, who must stand all of 5’10”. Still though, Robbie is from Tallaght, a suburb of Dublin with some fairly notorious neighbourhoods.
All in all, it seems conditions in the Irish camp have been poor from the start. I just hope the lads can put it all behind them before the game against Cameroon on Saturday. It seems unlikely though.
