    He was accosted by a particularly shabby, smelly man who asked him for money for dinner.

    Winkley took out his wallet, extracted a fiver, and asked,
    “If I give you this money, will you take it and buy whisky?”

    “No, I stopped drinking years ago,” the beggar said.

    “Will you use it to gamble?” he asked.
    “I don’t gamble,” said the man.

    “Will you spend the money on greens fees at a golf course?” he asked.

    “Are you MAD? Said the beggar, “I haven’t played golf in 20 years!”

    At which our viewer exclaimed,
    “Forget the money. I’m going to take you to my home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife.” The beggar was astounded.

    “Won’t your wife be bothered? I know I’m dirty and I probably smell pretty bad too.”

    “That’s alright,” he replied, “I want her to see what a man looks like when he’s given up drink, gambling, and golf.”

    Mario Lemina – “has been likened to Manchester United’s Paul Pogba”. Let’s pray we don’t sign him then……

    Hard to talk about football today.

    My condolences to those affected by the tragedy in Manchester. The craziest thing about us humans is that we are intelligent enough to put people into space and create new technologies, but we are not intelligent enough to stop killing each other. It is just tragic.

    Please stay safe everybody.

    I agree with GGG, today, after one of the worst outrages since the horrible times when the IRA committed a series of atrocities, it is hard to concentrate on football.

    Our thoughts and prayers should be with the victims and their loved ones.

    Funny thing is I don’t see many mentions of Schalke o4’s Sead Kolasinac

    he ticks quie a few boxes :

    left defensive back
    left midfield
    so he’s multi-faceted
    scores goals
    comes on a free
    had a superb year in the Bundesliga
    same club as Mesut’s first club

    such a player does make sense in an AFC line-up, I’d even say he’s a typical AFC transfer

    in Schalke and in the german press, everyone seems to ‘know’ he’ll be a Gunner next year

    Then again…who am I to know…
