Thai Hard: With a Vengeance

Article by Gerry McDonnell

Tubby Brazilian Ronaldo might be one particular of the best players to at any time grace a football pitch, but he’s definitely a bad part model. The AC Milan man allow himself down when he invited three members of the late-night enjoyment industry back again to a motel. It wasn’t just the truth that they turned out to be ladyboys he shamefully offered to pay them for undertaking nothing at all. If I pay out a builder to construct a conservatory, and he brings along a few superfluous equipment, I’d anticipate him to preserve his head down and end the work.

This sorry tale was not the only circumstance of mistaken identity this week Rio Ferdinand kicked a female Chelsea steward soon after mistaking her for a wall. It sounds like a tall tale, but I when kicked the wife by accident I believed she was her mother.

This is Rio’s initial substantial profile gaffe given that that minute of madness a number of decades back, when he dated Emma Bunton. I will absolutely be dipping in to the seven/1 for a draw in between Manchester United and West Ham.

Rio wasn’t the only player involved in controversy at Stamford Bridge last week Michael Ballack and Didier Drogba nearly came to blows about a totally free kick they really should genuinely have obtained a room with Ronaldo. I can not get my head about the eleven/two for a Newcastle win above Chelsea.

The funniest second of the match came after the ultimate whistle, when the Manchester United players had a Benny Hill fashion fight with the Chelsea groundsmen. The United boys had been completely out of order Rio Ferdinand really should know by now to maintain off the grass. Middlesbrough are concerned in a genuine fight, they’ll beat Portsmouth at 11/10.

Rafa Benitez’s choice to wind up Didier Drogba prior to their Champion’s League semi will rightfully be filed alongside Ronaldo’s shemale escapades in the ‘what a massive rick’ class, but each are trumped by my determination to make a move on a waitress when I holidayed in Thailand. I won’t bore you with all the gruesome facts, but let’s just say that she wasn’t the only a single who received a big suggestion. I’m far a lot more comfy with this suggestion back again Liverpool to beat the imploding Manchester City at 8/11.

Gareth Barry is thinking about a move to Liverpool as he wishes to join a club that can match his ambition. Evidently his ambition is to complete adequately in Europe and by no means win the league. The Villa can overtake Everton for the UEFA cup spot by viewing off Wigan at 4/7.

Final week was disastrous for Birmingham Town. As the Blues threw absent a two- lead at house, Fulham had been doing miracles in Manchester and Bolton had been holding on for a point at White Hart Lane. It’s possible there is a little truth in the gypsy’s curse they should in no way have offered him to Blackburn. Fulham v Birmingham will be a cracker, I’ll explode when Fulham get the factors at 5/four.

Robbie Savage could undoubtedly forge a job in the female impersonation industry once his very best footballing days are behind him someplace in 1998. Blackburn are a far far better crew considering that they dropped the blonde deadwood they’ll beat Derby by two or more targets at five/six.

If Perusing v Tottenham produces as a lot action as the reverse fixture, it’ll be quite an entertaining game. Tottenham romped to a six-four victory at the Lane narrowly foiling my bet on ‘no goalscorer’. Studying have deteriorated considering that then they haven’t scored a goal considering that March and only Derby have a worse aim variation. If Tottenham don’t take all three points at 12/5, I’ll be far more hurt than when I woke up in Thailand with a even worse limp than Heather Mills.

All the warning signs had been there with that Thai waitress, she really warned me that she’d be bringing some nuts up to the area. I believed she meant that I’d enjoy a late night snack – regrettably, I was correct. I’m certainly proper in taking a significant slice of the 8/eleven for an Arsenal win over Everton.

I am reminded of my Thai nightmare every time I see Roy Keane’s notorious problem on Alf-Inge Haaland that was some tackle. Roy’s boys have been priced up at 11/two from Bolton, that is very, really massive.

It was very ironic that I ended up in a compromising place with a male who looked like a female, as my spouse could effortlessly pass for a builder. Aston Villa, Blackburn, Tottenham and Arsenal type a ten/one accer of which there can be completely no ambiguity.
