21.52 – A spot of Arsenal news. Alex Manninger, who spent the season on loan at Fiorentina, is attracting the interest of Espanyol, the ‘other’ team in Barcelona. They have apparently made a bid of around £600,000.
More great planning by the FAI here. Leaving aside the rights and wrongs of the Roy Keane affair, they’ve demonstrated a total lack of competence in terms of looking after the facilities for the squad – and as a further demonstration of how the Football Association of Ireland works, as soon as Roy Keane left the squad, the players were flying economy class again.
They still haven’t replied to my emails either……c*nts.
