Lamela goes foxhunting

Thursday 21 April 2016 … Famous Mother's Birthday … Son a Famous Fox Hunter.


Lamela Goes Fox Hunting.

Another Successful Kill.

The Greg Meyer Column.

 Foxhunting is not high up there in the popularity stakes of downtown Carapachay, our hero's birth place. It’s not that they don’t exist. The local species known as the grey zorro abounds in Argentina. Seems football is streets ahead as the favoured sport.
.
And so too in the leafy glades of an upmarket London suburb football is the much discussed subject. However as his partner Sofia cooks breakfast prior to Erik’s departure for another session at Hotspur Way, the subject of foxhunting is uppermost on our young Argentinian’s mind.
.
In particular closing down that 5 point gap  to a certain football species of Fox.
.
Hunting foxes with dogs was banned 10 years ago. Hunting foxes with lions well that's a different matter altogether. Especially when the leader of the pack ( should that be pride) is one Harry Kane.
.
Harry posted an Instagram picture just after West Ham and Leicester drew 4 all. Featured a pride of Lions on the hunt. Just “ a bit of fun really” said Harry later in explanation.
.
Looked rather more than just a “bit of” after Spurs clinical demolition of Stoke City narrowing the gap between the chasing hounds and the proverbial fox to 5 points.
.
Two stumbles by the fox as in a minor trip up ( a draw ) followed by a plunge down a looming cliff
( major loss of footing ) means a successful hunt for all except the Fox.
.
Of course all that is predicated on the chasing pack of Cockerels performing faultlessly in what’s left of the hunt, namely 4 wins out of four.
.
So Who Is Pulling for Tottenham?
.
Most notable of the fox hunting supporters is HRH the Prince of Wales. Hmm. Swansea next up for Leicester. Surely the Welsh team can do us a favour.
.
Indeed far from dying out in 2005 when Tony Blair banned fox hunting it has prospered. On Boxing day for example the scheduled meets exceed 250,000. If we played Leicester in Northern Ireland then traditional fox hunting is still completely above board.
.

Above all Tottenham have massive support from the world’s bookies who stand to be liable for a massive payout if the Foxes survive the hunt.
.
Those Against.
.
Apart from most of the media wishing for a fairy tale Leicester  ending there are a host of anti fox hunters. Everyone from Paul McCartney. Tony Robinson to Ricky Gervais. Of course the most high profile of the lot. Claudio Raniere.
.
Here in the leafy glades of Kent foxes abound but so do some passionate Spurs supporters …
.
 At A Kent Pub Near Westerham.
.
Euphoric ecstasy summed up our epic display against Stoke. The oft trotted out lines variously “ a difficult place to play” were made to look redundant. Another time. Another way of summing up this Spurs side. Fearless.
.
The title race is live and coming to a television near you. Surely the old banana skin routine against West Brom and Southampton is part of the old Spurs. A bygone anachronism.
.
Our pub is located in the heart of Winston Churchill territory. Great confidant of our birthday girl , The Queen.  No time better than to quote the great man …
.
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity: an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
.
Cheers  … never been more optimistic … Greg Meyer.    coys.

 Jimmy's Video Spot.
Not sure Erik knows or would even understand this traditional fox hunting song but I can see the boys round the piano belting out this one. Be very afraid Foxes, we've picked up the scent and are on your trail.
