News in brief

A double whammy of Premier League leg break news…

“I think it’s broken…” (it’s not)

Luka Modric 

Of course, showbusiness desks all over the country are awash with the sounds of delighted squealing and nervously spilt cappuccinos today, after Robbie Williams managed to share a stage with Gary Barlow, without braining him on live television.

Well done, or whatever. Anyway, here’s what we know about football, thanks to the likes of The Mirror, The Mail, The Sun, and other important daily newspapers…

In a “retirement” that might yet prove to be quicker than a nightclub conversation with Ricky Hatton, Sam Allardyce has suggested that Paul Robinson could be convinced to return from the wilderness if Fabio Capello came a-calling. He said this on the matter:

“His decision not to go back with England was because he wanted to play rather than sit on the bench,”

“If that changes some way or other, that will be up to Fabio Capello to build bridges and see whether he can or not.”

In a double-whammy of leg break news, Bobby Zamora fans will be over the moon to know that a crafty surgeon did some nifty work on his fibula. According to a club statement:

“[Yesterday] morning, Bobby Zamora underwent an operation on the injury sustained in Saturday’s match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.”

“The operation was viewed as successful by the surgeon and the fracture to the fibula was repaired, ligament damage was also discovered and repaired during the operation.”

And, after making a real meal of it at the weekend, it turns out that there’s nothing remotely wrong with Luka Modric.

That is all.

    Sam Allardyce’s comment is bizarre given the way hart is performing. I’m afraid Robinson burnt the bridges, it’s not Capello’s role to build them again.
