Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Ross and Brucey in Villa Bust-up!

My favorite footie story one the weekend concerned a bust-up between Elland Road legend and current Aston Villa striker Ross McCormack and Villa boss Steve Bruce. Brucey was apparently livid  after Ross skipped training due to not being able to get his car out of his driveway due to a malfunctioning gate. The gaffer apparently visited Ross at his home and noted in uncompromising terms that he could have just hopped over the four-foot wall surrounding his house and taken a cab to training. This reminded me of a time when former Belgian international Emile Mpenza bunked off training because he'd taken Viagra the night before and couldn't get his shorts on. So - what's the silliest excuse you've ever used to skive off work?

LOL, mate. These stories are even better than the ones coming out of the White House. Based on the way Ross is playing, He would be lucky to scale a four inch wall, let alone a four foot wall. BTW, let's not give Donny Trump any ideas.
Second, Emile wouldn't want to make it public that at such a young age the supposed stud needs some assistance. Even with stiffy , his psyche may be a little iffy. Well, that's my tuppence worth!

Glad you enjoyed it. One more funny detail is that Emile Mpenza actually had the audacity of suing the Plymouth Argyle manager for exposing his story. You can't make it up, can you?

Wasn't Kolo Toure late because the girl who he was shagging on the side took this picture of him showering her her bathroom?
