As Brazilian footballer Juninho finally decides Atletico Madrid, not
Spurs, will be his new home, news reaches me of another UK squad that’s in
need of a good player or three.
For, in a sad day for the public relations industry, UK’s PR finest have
just been trounced 5-0 by their Irish brethren in a Dublin
UK coach Peter Hehir, who doubles up as Countrywide Porter Novelli UK’s
chairman, admits our lads were simply outclassed. ’It was a game of two
halves and we lost both of them,’ he says. ’It was 1-0 at half-time but we
got a little overwhelmed in the second half. It happens though: Manchester
United lost 5-0 a couple of times last year. It could have been 10-0.’
The stoical Hehir is now preparing for the rematch, provisionally planned
for Cambridge in late October.
