Like the Harlem Globetrotters? — Premier League goes global debate continues

Harry Redknapp’s come out with a corker of a comment concerning the proposed international round, saying that Premier League sides are in danger of becoming something “like the Harlem Globetrotters.”

All I can now envisage is ‘Sweet Georgia Brown’ (that’s the tune you often hear in the background while they’re on television — you’ll know the one I mean…) being played while Christiano Ronaldo wows a crowd in Tokyo with his supreme skills — and afro hair-do.

Meanwhile, Roy Keane has surprisingly come out in favour of the proposal. That’s if he gets to play one of the big sides, that is…

David.

    Co-starring Derby County as the “Washington Generals” 😀

  2. Remember last year, when the Liverpool fans were complaining about their ticket allocation for the European Cup final? I had a letter published in the Guardian suggesting that they take a tip from theatre; do seven nights in Greece, and then if its a success, transfer to Broadway for a run. I’m glad to see that my views have been taken on board.
