The Lunatic is joining the world of football to pay tribute to the legendary Diego Armando Maradona, who was taken home by the hand of God last week. While the debate of the GOAT goes on, the tributes that has followed the passage of Maradona says a lot about his greatness.
To other lunatic matters, it appears the lunatic has been picking on some people or he just hate their guts. Far from it, I am for nobody, I belong to nobody. I say it as I see it. I am particularly pissed with lot of the ticket busters last weekend. How do we do detty December if y’all keep bursting the tickets? Win or lose lots of you collect huge pay cheques and still complain about workload, workload kee you there. Go to Oyingbo market and see workload. Real Madrid, Juventus, PSG, Borussia Dortmund etc. decided to do an Amaka. That thing can pain. Talking about pain, we start on a Kroos pain.
When Antoine Griezmann and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were not scoring after Toni Kroos called them out for their ‘disrespectful’ goals celebration, we thought they have decided not to score so there won’t be a reason to jubilate.
Apparently, Griezmann had waited for a goal so he could celebrate, more like mock Kroos and he did, after he scored against Osasuna at the weekend. For Aubameyang, we don’t know what is happening. Even shots on target are scarce, not to talk of goals. Play him on the left, play him in the center, Aubameyang keeps firing blanks like the Army of one Country. While their own blanks cause some havoc, Aubameyang’s own does not. One league goal since he signed a new contract, Arsenal fans will be hoping they have not be scammed.
The Odion Ighalo excursion to Old Trafford is obviously over. Except if he has some other duties he performs at Manchester United than the one we know. Maybe he has started helping set cones and arrange bibs in training. He is never seen in the team anymore. Without Cavani, he was behind in the pecking order. Now with Cavani, he is no longer in the pecking order.
At least, he achieved his dream of playing for the club of his dreams, he also scored some goals and he called the Nigerian government a shame to the world while wearing a Manchester United jersey. His excursion should end soon and he should find his way back to China, fulfilled. Or better still return to the Nigerian League that never has a fixed starting date. Favour over Labour, be like the thing don expire.
What will Juventus do without their manager Cristiano Ronaldo? Without him, they have only won once in the Serie A this season. Oh! I heard Andrea Pirlo is Juventus’s manager not Ronaldo, pardon me. But there will be no difference with Ronaldo as player-manager as it seems the tactics is, ‘pass it Ronaldo’.
Like Arsenal, Juventus went to appoint a Youth Corper coach, coach wey never do freedom. Maybe they appointed Pirlo based on his brilliance as a footballer, based on that, Ronaldo could as well be the manager.
Enough said. I called Real Madrid penalty donors last week and they did it again. Jose Mourinho and Frank Lampard are busy acting like they never knew each other. Anyways, they are both doing fine on the pitch so no one cares. Once again, Christmas is coming, don’t forget to send gifts to the Lunatic.
