Journo’s 140-word Friday thoughts
Unwanted hat trick
Liverpool have lost three matches in a row at home … admittedly, against top opponents in the shape of Arsenal, Manchester United and Udinese. But the natives are getting restless. The long-term view at Anfield is being sorely tested.
Roy goes Underground
Genial Roy Hodgson chats amicably to a punter on the Tube… the next thing he knows, his views on Rio F are splattered all over social media and elsewhere. Shame on you, Mr Punter. Hope you enjoyed your 15mins of fame. Poor Roy must be wondering why he took on the “Impossible Job”.
Andre up for Europa action
Good to see AVB is treating the Europa Lge seriously, despite a strong Tottenham side disappointingly drawing 1-1 away to Panathinaikos last night. It really is not that bad a comp, also featuring Lazio, Lyon, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, Marseille, PSV and Napoli. Fair play, Andre.
