Ride Drug Free? The Free Hit Agenda. The Play-Offs Roundup

Ride Drug Free?

Top level sport invariably has drug issues, with tennis being cited by the Manero as the rogued drug state and football escaping substance free? No, Bernard Mendy, Raheem Stirling, Deli Ali have previous of the laughing gas syndrome, have a laugh enjoy the ride, brain cells of no substance just the gas. The drugged up badged fraternity list as long as the tattooed lils, kiss the badge.

Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy got twigged for sucking on a performance enhancing disguised as a tea bag, all washed down with Red Bull, watch the Vardy scowl. The Leicester dug out was littered with tea bags, to run faster to increase the adrenaline, cheating? Tea for two, tea for them all? The zero sparked out Jamie became unaware of the camera’s intensity and was ringed out as seeking match play extra yardage, watch the ringer.

An investigation has lifted the curtain on footballer’s drug testing procedures, if any, no surprise here Cilla. The number one test a season for players highlights the authorities’ frightened stance to reveal the true picture, to confirm, there are no tests on the banned test star one. The Football Association prefers the yard stick to brush under the the carpet, quote the FA “Doping in football is very rare”. The Manero response, testing is a rare bird, to outlaw the drug bird hovering over English football, it should not be for to not drip those bird droppings on one’s doorstep FA headquarters. The association reneges on all data and kicked the bouncing ball to the United Kingdom anti-doping agency, who in turn kicks the ball down another extended patch into UKAD (UK anti-doping) with the agency becoming embroiled with the boxer Conor Benn’s drug testing fiasco passing Benn as drug free, having failed two previous tests with VADA (Voluntary Anti-doping Agency). To cloud smoke the den further, UKAD stated that there will be no more information forthcoming, quote “Any data could be misinterpreted”. A bollocks up boxing state, punch those lights out, to breach the freedom of information act.

Onto the football courtship with the UKAD never sanctioning anyone in football for blood doping or for testosterone. Dating back to 2006-2009 thirteen players tested for sky rocket testosterone levels but UK sport west ‘hush, hush, eye to eye’, no cadger googoos on that one. It was an opportunity for the authorities to seize the moment, they failed no action was taken. The previous head chief sitting bull Nicole Sapstead was the head of UK sport between 2006-2009, and later became the UKAD bull head in 2015. Sapstead needs to clean up the mess and become transparent to expose the cheats, with the knock on effect being with the Football Association who are culpable for administering sweet FA, to sugar coat, UKAD have praised the FA shisters in arms, smell the stench, drug free? For the added record, fifteen players failed drug tests between 2015 and 2022, scot-free they prevailed.

Agenda Codenamed Free Hit

A new Brexit agenda proposal by the Football Association titled ‘Brexit busting free hits’ on the pro-rata on one’s understanding that no Brexit points are required to sign a numbered out foreign talent, no restrictions, without the current points system being operative, the free hit syndrome, link to article Mr Brexit March 29 2023. In return the FA would stipulate that Premier League clubs sign more English talent and offer more opportunities. So will the proposals fall on the governing body’s ears, FIFA and UEFA, or to be tone deaf, hear the pin drop.

Currently the England manager Gareth Southgate has a thirty two percent ratio to choose from in the Premiership on English players, a worrying stat for future generational team England progression. One of the Premier League’s most progressive clubs, Brighton and Hove Albion, entered the fray with reference to the overseas player influx. Quote the Brighton CEO Paul Barber, “We are not convinced that having wider access to talent is to the detriment of the national team”. If Barber wants a short back and sides on the back of this nonsense quote, then he can have one. A further Barber quote “We feel we have a responsibility to bring through English players”. Contradiction trash, Brighton, the club that imports foreign talent, to number out at ten squad players, meet that responsibility. The Brighton squad does contain twelve English players, four above the Football Association’s requirement of the rule for all Premiership clubs to have eight English squad players. So can we give the Seagulls the benefit of the doubt? With the ageing Danny Welbeck being the only Brighton player to be involved with team England in recent times, fly on those seagull droppings at the Brighton rock.

Late news; the Brighton defender, Lewis Dunk, has been selected for England after a five year absence.

The Play-off Finals

Time to muscle into the play-off finals, with the teams striving to be impregnable on their mission to climb the pyramid, promotion, the Champagne Charlies. The Championship final contested between two previously beleaguered clubs who have driven through the pyramid dismantle shredder, Coventry City and Luton Town. The match panned out to a draw at 1-1, with the dreaded penalty shootouts sealing the deal for Luton Town on a 6-5 margin and a return to the Premiership since dropping out in the 1981-82 season. The general consensure is that this is football’s richest match, with a reported 200 million pounds plus piping into the Hatter’s vaults. A visit to the decrepit Kenilworth Road built in 1905, will be a sobering taste for football’s hierarchy, any falling debris? Time to don one’s hat.

Into League 1, with the Yorkshire might of Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley matching up in the final. Wednesday’s turn up date at the final was not expected following on from The Owl’s four to nil first leg semi-final pounding at the home of The Posh, Peterborough United. The crazed second leg at Hillsboro resulted with The Owls inflicting the same pain on The Posh, with a resounding five to one pummel beat. The Owls held their nerve to edge through on the penalty shootouts five to three ‘cuckoo’. Both teams were of an equal possession stat during the match, with the Sheffield Wednesday aiming 28 shots at goal, alongside twelve corners, to The Posh’s eight to three respectively. Time to slot into the history page, no team has ridden out a first leg 4-0 deficit and survived to enter the saloon doors, Wembley Stadium, the Yorkshire might, the haywire stats, fruitcake fare, Hillsboro, May 2023.

The last chance saloon slayers Sheffield Wednesday, carried the same format into the PO final defeating Yorkshire rivals Barnsley, with a third minute extra stoppage time goal into the extra time period, follow the drift, rounded at one hundred and twenty three minutes, a Josh Windass goal put the wind in The Owl’s bumerage, turbo charged. In the League Two final, Carlisle United defeated Stockport County five to four on the cursed penalty shootouts. The 2023-24 Football League season starts on the 5th of August, with the National Leagues starting the ball rolling on the 20th April 2023, football’s pyramid.
