Did you see what I did there, given that it’s currently Shakespeare season?
Hmm, moving quickly on;
Aston Villa seem to be flavour of the month when it comes to news and it’s no wonder after the comedy of errors we’ve seen lately.
Anything is seemingly possible at the club, as we’re in such a state of disarray and it leaves us wide open to speculation.
Speculation that might be miles off the mark, but can’t instantly be written off as total rubbish.
In other words, the press are loving it, as it gives them a chance to make up any old crap just to fill column space.
The perfect example of this comes in comparing The Mirror, where “no saviour is on the horizon yet”, as opposed to The Telegraph, where “chairman Steve Hollis is understood to be talking to three parties about a potential sale.”
It’s total conjecture which always comes about at this time of year, it would seem.
Purely designed to sell season tickets?
You might very well think that; I couldn’t possibly comment (anyone else remember “House of cards”?).
Anyway, the point is I don’t believe a word I’m reading.
Likewise, the Mirror saying in the above article that we’ve now had two conversations with Nigel Pearson.
But you never know and it makes for good reading if you’re a fan of the club.
All that said, the Telegraph article is great because the main part of it is that the supposed Chinese consortium that wants to buy us is proposing to bring in Damien Comolli.
Now that’s a bloke who is as Marmite as it gets, in my opinion.
If you look at his CV, it really is pretty good.
He speaks fluent Spanish, French and English.
And apparently knows everything about everything to do with footy, with him having qualified for a coaching badge and having a law degree.
Except pretty much every proper football manager and possibly chairman who ever worked with him seems to have detested him.
For every Luis Suarez that he signed, he also had an Andy Carroll.
I could add that he was responsible for bringing Hutton and Bent to Spurs, but that might be unfair of me.
Anyway, it’s probably another made up story based on the fact that he can probably converse with the foreign players in our squad. Most of whom probably won’t be here for much longer anyway.
I really don’t know why I countenance all this rubbish.
But I know some of you love it.
And fair play, it makes for better reading than how we’ve performed this season.
I really do hope some of the positive stuff, as in a takeover ends up to be true.
