Luka's letter to his agent

Dear Mr. Mamic, weather fine, food lovely
I wish I was here.
.
Greg's climbed back aboard the Musings tandem, thank God. I don't think we'll ever catch that Bradley Wiggins now. Ade's transfer has stalled, Ledley's bowed to the inevitable, Luka's 'psychologically' unfit to train according to the Spanish press. But are we down-hearted? We certainly are not. Two pre-season matches, two wins, Siggy scores, no sign of the AVB squat: what's not to like?

 Thursday 19 July 2012   Some Very Famous Names At The Birthday Table.
 .
  A King Abdicates ... A Letter From Luka.
 .
 It's almost a year to the day when the now famous Luka Modric Transfer Request emerged. You remember it. The one about no like chicken badge,no understand word triffic, no like wages, no like play with tall circus man and so it went. My how times have changed. Well in many ways yes but it seems the Modric family coffee table is dominated by Spanish travel brochures. Travel remains firmly on our little Luka's agenda.
.
A missive seemingly posted from a deckchair of Spanish manufacture handily placed on a beach of very Spanish origin.Whilst Mrs Luka is off at the waters edge ensuring littlest Luka, Ivan actually, is not attempting to swim back to London (North London do a great line in very early years school prep), Luka is tapping away at his laptop.
.
So in this day of email communication it was not of great surprise that he had double clicked and the following arrived here at The Luka Modric Appreciation Society Kent.com inbox.Nice to be on Luka's list of contacts however accidental it might be.
.
A quick scan of Luka's inbox would have revealed some fascinating names and none more so frequent than Mario Mamic. Football agent to our one time Croatian triumvirate and very hard at work on Luka's travel itinerary. And so to that mail ....
.
Dear Mario,
.
        Hvala from your biggest money spinner. Only having beach joke of course. Remember last year we were on Russian super yacht Eclipse enjoying too much vodka and lots of deck tennis. Well so as there is no slip ups again I thought I would help by setting out a leetle list to help you in your chats with Senor Special.Please excuse my Croatian English. No help from Ivan as he is too busy practising his long distance swimming.
No like Russian front ...
.
Niko has left for Dynamo Kyiv in the Ukraine. Vedran is now serving time with LoKomotiv Moscow. Strong and proud Croatian upbringing will get them through the winter. Mrs Luka says London is as low as she will go . Very happy with Madrid weather forecast.
.
Still no like little stadium ...
.
Eighty five thousand fans pack into Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Daniel still working on plans for new Lane. With both Niko and Charlie gone Luka lonely. Not lonely at Bernabeu.
.
Like John Terry's lawyer ...
.
Maybe miracle worker could work on Luka's case.My escape problem much easier than John's. Much more black and white. Surely simple gentleman's agreement between me and Daniel can be sorted by Mr. George Carter-Stephenson. Anyone with a name that long must be good.
.
Long like Andre ...
.
After all he did his best to get me to Russian club last summer. Shame that now Andre is at chicken club and you Mario say I should go. Surely nothing to do with roubles or pesetas.
.
Just one little comment on Andre ...
.
No like raincoat ...
.
In fact have not met anyone who does. Yes apart from his Joana Maria(Mrs AVB), little Benedita (nearly 3) and Carolina( nearly2). If your family won't support your dress sense who will.
Never did see John or Frank in raincoats at Russian club. Even Ray Wilkins only wore his famous tee shirts.Remember Ray?
.
No like missing Eastenders in Spain ...
.
No problems with being home on Thursday nights. Real have night off. Seems will have to go online and watch. What is Spanish broadband like Mario?
 .
Hope this helps Mario. As you know nothing wrong with chicken club except for wages, no Big league, no other Croatians there, and now no Harry. No triffic word either.
.
Must rush as Mrs Luka not good swimmer and Ivan will be well on way back to England unless I borrow speed boat and pick him up. Loves White Hart Primary School.
 .
  Yours
 .
           Luka, Mrs Luka and littlest Croatian Olympic swimmer.
 .
 .Meanwhile At A Kent Pub.
.
Mine Host has gone all sentimental with the drinks on him. Not every day a legend retires.
.
Salute
              Ledley Brenton King ... truly a Rolls Royce.
.
Just before we go that birthday table.
                                                      Nelson Mandela(94) provides the sheer power of humanity and will to overcome.Richard Branson(62) certainly sits easily next to him and alongside is Nick Faldo(55). Very appropriate with a certain Open just started. Finally and where we are seated is Priyanka Chopra(30). Nothing to with the fact she was Miss World of 2000 and is taking Bollywood by storm.
.
Cheers ... albeit a sad and joyful day .. Ledley leaves but I bet his knees might feel better ... Greg Meyer.      coys.
 .
Video Spot
A fitting tribute toThe King. One club man, will we ever see his like again? Includes the famous tackle on Robben. Content excellent, film quality not quite so excellent. It will be a brave man that puts on the 26 shirt. I hope they save it for someone really good.
.
With thanks to those lovely people over at Spurs Community for permission to 'share'. (Live link in the Recommended Reads  section)

Modric must be busy on his laptop right now, as he's also written to Jose Mourinho and an email turned up with the following:

Mr Jozay
Me still no like chicken badge
Triffic man with nodding head and brain of small child gone to English seaside
No like Charly gone
No like Niko gone
No want to go to red team in North as scared of big Serbian and shrek man with magic hair
No like Russian team with many new players getting in Luka’s spaces
Boss Leevie tell me off many time and no let me train with large afro hairs, lemon or fast wingmonkey
No like Jozay’s baby brother in charge of chicken team
Me still like shirt colour but want new badge and nice warm sunshine for little Luka
Shame me no cheap price but Luka play good and be very happy in hot land
I ready for you come get me
Luka

the King has gone and now a Rats is leaving the sinking ship. Mr Modric a distant cousin to our very own Roland Rat wants to flee to Spain on any ship he can climb aboard. Mr Levey our man has Modric trapped in a corner and wont let him go till the Special One coughs up enough Euroes 50 million of them and sends Carvallio over with the case. Then the Rat can leave and go and get easy medals from a two team league in a country has poor has Greece but in denial. We all Loved our King and wish him all the best in his new venture and who noes he could be our new Freund in a few years time or quicker if our new head coach finishes 4th. Coys Davspurs spin on a King and a Rat

What does ???? mean Davspurs is confused

Ed Moloney said...

He means this is gibberish and he doesn't understand it. Neither do I!

Ledley was and still is special. A joy to watch at his best, tackles no other defender would attempt to do. He is as important at the back as Modric is in the midfield and with only one striker are we doomed.

Ed baloney god help your wife if you struggle to understand what a rat looks like. The moral of my tale is we loved our King and we will end up hating the little Rat Modric Not because he want to go to Madrid its the way he is going about it.DAVSPURS

Ed Moloney said...

Then why didnt you say so in simple words? Incidentally Johnny Haynes is dead you know, the days when footballers had loyalty to anything more meaningful than cold cash are long gone. Ledley King was an exception but I do wonder if his knee had been better would he have been any different?

ledgend true hero. pi** off modric get another mid like moutinho and hopefully jan vertonghen will be as good as ledley shame he didnt get to play as much as he wanted

JimmyG2 said...

Can I help?
Anon 16:16 was not Davspurs. He was 16:18.
Anon 16:16 cryptically remarked:

'Is it 2011 already? I love original material'

I have no idea what this means unless he means we have been here before with Modric.

OK? Let slanging match re-commence.

Ed Moloney said...

Slanging is fine, calling someone you don't like a Rat is in a different and unacceptable category. Maybe if we had a look at Davspurs moniker, a Rat would appear, by comparison, alluring!

Ed Moloney said...

Modric's behavior is clearly unacceptable and personally, I think he is foolish for not realising that Spurs stand on a new threshold with AVB as manager and various other changes happening and that he could play an exciting part in all that. But that is no excuse for personal abuse based on looks.
