Greg Meyer's Column. Bunker Mentality

Greg down in Kent looks out from his bunker to survey the scene. There is plenty going on out on the course, but nothing as yet in the court. Harry hasn't travelled but Modric has. Speculation? Not in this column. Just the facts ma'am. Just the facts.
So, if anyone's feeling under par after our opening game in S.Africa then relax with Greg.

Saturday 16 July 2011 ... A Most Important Spurs Birthday.
Le Tour ... Le Golf ... Le Modric ... and Les Birthday Celebrations.
.
 Fore!! Get out of there!!
Golfing parlance for duck your head quickly. Given the relentless and monotonous barrage of stories Modric this week some of regulars have decided to take in the golf down here in Kent.
.
The Royal St George's at Sandwich is some fifty six miles crow flying miles from our pub so long as you drive it straight . Surely just a long drive and sand wedge for some. No sign of any Croatian golfers. Probably not a big game in downtown Zagreb. A little more on the British Open shortly but first some updates on this weeks pub conversations starting with ...
Le Tour.
.
 Not the one currently in the Pyrenees but a little further south in Africa. Spurs in the Vodacom Challenge. Looks like most of the current squad have managed to get on the plane. Rafa and Gareth, Aaron and Jermaine, Heurelho and Sebastien, Peter and Robbie,Wilson and Disco Benny ( replete with headphones and seems to be alone in that regard). Easier to list who didn't make it. Ledley King, and Sandro overcoming surgery, and of course one man still closetted with his legal team near Southwark.
.
 At the risk of being hit by a flying golf club dare we mention you know who certainly boarded the plane. Verified by thirty seven newspapers and twenty six tv channels minimum. Back to ...
.
 Le Golf.
.
 Most of our number are purely classical hackers. Even our pub journalist who doesn't work for anyone named Murdoch. What a mess and set to be an enormous story. Possibly the story of 2011. Great it might keep you know what off the tabloids. No, no chance.
.
 One rumour here at Sandwich was the spotting of a 64 year old golf fanatic. Known for his great love of the game perhaps thats why he's not in South Africa. 
.
 Our lawyer has been scanning the recent Southwark Crown Court listings and no sign of The Crown vs Redknapp and Others just yet. The closest listing  early in the week was the following...
                                       Timothy J. Dale  ... with the next defendant one James W. Arthur.
.
 For conspiracy theorists Arthur Daley in disguise. Then again Harry has consistently denied being a wheeler dealer unlike one of our favourites from the tv classic Minder.
On the subject of Minders, our Lucre has an Iranian agent and at the risk of incurring Terry and others wrath a quick look into conversation here at the pub on the subject ...
.
 Le Modric.
.
 Our pub's unanimous view,with mine host just back from Tenerrife for the voting,remains he is not to be released. At least not for anything under forty five million.
.
 Ronaldo was released by Man United  for somewhere in the region of seventy million and abroad to Real Madrid.. Their key man at the time. Modric if transferred would go English and to a rival. Apparently there is a premium for "English" players. Just ask Liverpool. So Modric should be fifty million. A player well embedded in the Premier League and not going abroad. Sorry South African safaris don't count.
.
 Double sorry. No he's not for sale!! Hang in there Daniel. Any support needed then there's plenty ready willing and able here ...
 .
.
 At A Kent Pub.
.
 I suppose if Pirates, Chiefs and Spurs are to your taste then plenty of armchair sports here at our pub with the team featuring on ESPN. Our banker reckons friendlies are take it or leave it fare. Still he's not a big golf fan.
.
 Hopefully no surprises ahead this week. A big ask with the courting of Luka to continue and the same with our Harry in a different vein and at a far less receptive venue.
.
 Birthday surprises today include Gareth of Bale ,still with us at age 22 years today. In the golf Adam Scott is in the hunt and turns 31. However our favourite today is the Minsk born tennis player. Anna Smashnova turns 35 today. What a name. You couldn't make it up even if you were a tabloidal hack.
.
.
Cheers ... have a smashing weekend ... Greg Meyer.           coys.
