The world is barking mad.
Is Bale sauntering round the champo at 25% effort and still being the best player, whilst living back home and playing golf at one of the UK courses every day really that mad a timeline?

Oh boy. A few nights ago i seen on Twitter a trend about Sigurdsson...

It seems this may well have been true after all after initially being a possible troll...


Host of media outlets reporting on it now....

The seriousness of the story aside, "innocent until proven Gylfi" is absolutely brilliant. :clap:

Silly silly man, that's his career and family up the creek now.

I did see some further rumor that Everton have sacked him, albeit that must be complete rumor given the innocent until proven....

How would the club even work with that, they wouldn't be able to claim any compensation for instance? Considering we paid£50m for him only a few years ago, this couldn't now be recouped? (*As in even partially)

Guy possibly sexually assaulted a child.

'do we get our money back?'

Reminds me of that Cardiff guy that died in that crash.

He is 31 with a year left on his contract - not going to be commanding a big fee off anyone, even without the noncery

Just messaging by the sounds of it, not Adam Johnson levels of noncery

Oh that would be a curveball. Whatever the case I hope it is sorted for any/all involved

Which begs the question, why did Everton feel the need to mention the player's age at all? The joys of "personally identifiable information", "internet trolls" and "2+2=5" in one neat little package. Innocent or guilty, they shouldn't be feeding the speculation machine.

Indeed. A few days ago it was merely trolls-being-trolls. It didn't get any traction until late last night it seemed when some newspapers picked up on it (Probably due to the police).

The local newspaper didn't even report on it until the very last minute once the cat was out of the bag, which was unusual for them trying to keep a lid the story.

Where/who did they ask? :)

Anecdotal: Other than on this forum I've not met a single person who likes it.
It says at the bottom of the image - at least 2,600 people "interested in football" in each country shown.

All through the Euros, the implementation of VAR was universally lauded. Some of the decisions were questioned but everybody was full of praise for the system itself (especially the swiftness of offside checks) and the officiating in general. The gist of it from English pundits/commentators was basically "why can't our VAR be more like this?".

I think you're being far too binary about liking/hating it - you have a box for those who like it and a box for those who hate it and for you, everybody who has even the slightest grievance with it goes in the "hate" box. You need to separate the grievances into those who genuinely want the whole system to die in a fire and those who want to improve the rules/implementation - they "like" it but recognise that it's done better elsewhere and can be improved in the Prem.

If you watched any of the Euros coverage or are part of any online communities where the Euros were discussed, you'd have seen far more people liking VAR than hating it.

At first I thought it was images from years ago from when he had those non-granny related issues. But with it being recently trending and reported locally...

He can't have been stupid 3 times now. Perhaps it was a setup by Rebekah Vardy....

Yeah found it.

It also looks like they tried to blackmail him, appears to be a setup...though what kind of moron takes 3 20somethings back to a hotel room with them.

moron because he is married/in the public eye ofc.
