Busted: The Daily Mail

Good afternoon.

More proof that the PG Tips chimps are alive, well and working on national sports desks. Crusades are usually expensive or at least require those taking part to disengage their brains. The good news for HH readers is I don’t charge and you get to make your own mind up.

Daily Mail 3 days ago with the headline: ‘That Didn’t Take Long! Hugo Lloris Unhappy With AVB Just Four Days After Joining Spurs.’

This negatively spun claptrap used the quotes of a third party – in this case Didier Deschamps – to support what’s essentially a lie.

‘Hugo has not appreciated the statements of his coach. I am not going to create a problem that I do not need today. But if it were to happen then it would need some consideration. I do not want Hugo to find himself in this situation.’

Deschamps is clearly a bitter little horse meat sandwich muncher with an agenda. It is a cynical stunt on behalf of the Mail to use his comments to support a piece of fiction. Deschamps has since added:

‘He is one of the best three goalkeepers in the world. Hugo could play against any player in any league. Now, if he can help Tottenham to the next level, it could be a springboard towards a bigger club.’

The player Hugo himself has demonstrated a diplomacy to match Villas-Boas’. As per my last blog on this issue, it’s as plain as the nose on your face that the boss doesn’t want to be disrespectful to Brad. Hugo Lloris said yesterday:

‘I am a professional and I can put all this aside, I’m only and entirely focused on France. I’ve played enough matches in the past to be able to manage this.’

Articles like this are about as honest and truthful as Kevin Bond sat on SNN on transfer deadline night in a suit we paid for making snide digs about us now having four goalkeepers. Good luck with that media career, Kev, the last famous chauffeur I saw appear on TV was Henri Paul.

I’ll be running a blog on every piece of nonsense involving this Club until the chimps start to think before hitting the publish button.

In other news, demand footballing supremo Harry Redknapp has joined Bournemouth.

    Papers make stuff up? Be telling us politicians are fundamentally trained to bullshit, and D Dien is sound of mind.

  • LLL says:

    This blog is seriously beginning to resemble one of those nutjob conspiracy websites. Do we really have to have a litter of kittens every time anyone prints anything about AVB which is slightly negative? It’s very dull to read, and I’m sure none of your readership are so foolish as to be taken in by gutter press stories. You are coming across like an AVB cultist, to be quite honest, like a scientologist who goes batshit whenever anyone mentions that the whole thing is bollocks.

    So, the Mail is a pile of shit. Thanks for this useful information. What revelations await, I wonder?

      Someone took the time out to write both the drivel in the media, and the drivel that was written about the drivel in this blog. Where are manners in the world when you need them?

    • Harry Hotspur says:

      LLL, it’s not cultist unless despite the garbage being printed is true I am still here demanding sanity.

      This isn’t about AVB, it’s about the club and it’s now taking the mickey on a near daily basis.

      It’s up to you mate, but I believe it’s worth telling them they’re wrong.

      I may well be wasting my breath, but it’s my dime.

        But this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg, this is the British press we’re talking about, not only that, the fooking Mail!! Every single story they run is twisted and slanted in some – ahem – dimension. Every single one of them.

        This whole thing is dull from the off – I read Deschamps quotes and thought, ‘who cares?’. Now it seems that someone from Spurs who pays the players wages has had a word with Lloris and got him to come out with something a little more diplomatic himself. Great, cool. Nobody died.

        As for AVB, he has endured much worse when he was making a fool out of himself every week at Chelsea, and I’m sure most of the hypocrites here weren’t so righteously outraged at his treatment back then. And if he wants to get the press off his back, it is really quite simple. Start acting like the tactical genius we hired him to be and solidificate 3 points against Reading

      LLL, (I roll my tongue when I type that), you sir are a dissenter. That is all.

    • HorryHatspur says:

      Your Mums Dull !

    Top stuff Harry, needed to be said. I thought the PG Tips chimps were what kept this blog running tbh, I stand corrected.
