Early Euro ignorance is as blissful as GB build-up
NOT surprised Giggsy’s enjoying his Team GB experience. No expense spared holed up in Champneys and that’s been followed by another luxury break in Spain. It’s a flippin’ holiday this Olympics lark, isn’t it?
A pedicure before breakfast, a Russian honey massage after lunch and then it’s sombreros on for a couple of days sunning out in Spain.
I wonder if Giggsy’ll enjoy the same pampering the next time Wales get together. Oh that’s right, he won’t be there will he ‘cos he turned his back on more mundane international football a few years back, didn’t he?
Anyway, good luck to our well-tanned, well-groomed footballers. There won’t be a more chilled-out group of bronze medallists to be found anywhere over the next few weeks.
I’m sure you’re as excited as I am about the upcoming Olympics though on a strictly money-making level, I ought to be combing this week’s Champions League coupon rather than fretting over whether or not Craig Bellamy enjoyed a good facial last week.
However, I think I’m going to plead ignorance and chicken out on the grounds that I’ve no idea who Skenderbeu Korce are, never mind where they come from. And Molde/Ventspils sounds like something you’d find coming up through the floor at your local through-the-night food joint.
Don’t know who they are or where they are from – which is something Rangers fans will be saying repeatedly when the Scottish Division Three fixture list is published.
