Danny Lee Rose: The Real Story

 Eh Ma, isn't that our our Danny, Superleftback?

October 12 2017 … Spurs Legend Birthday.

.
 Daniel Lee Rose  … The Real Story.
.
“ A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”  

                                                                                      W. Shakespeare  Romeo and Juliet  circa 1596.
.
Bill Shakespeare , reputedly a keen football fan , died 401 years ago. His memory lives on and indeed grows ever larger.
.
However another synonymous with the aforementioned flower, one Daniel Lee Rose, is in danger of fading from the average football fans memory. Danny Rose last featured for Spurs on January 31 in a drawn game with Sunderland.
.
Thereafter a short term knee injury has blossomed into a diagnosis of Mr. Invisible. Conspiracy theories as to his whereabouts, indeed his very existence have circulated with regularity as follows.
.
The Abduction by Aliens Theory.
.
No concrete proof of this theory has yet to be advanced. But given the nature of the matter highly unlikely your extraterrestrials  are going to leave a calling card, let alone a goodbye note.
.
Tottenham Hotspur FC have hardly been an encyclopedia of information as to any news on Danny.
.
Mauricio Pochettino’s standard line has been  “He is some weeks away.’ Away but where. Hmm.
.
The Lord Lucan Theory.
.
Lord Richard John Bingham, Seventh Earl of Lucan, killed the family nanny on November 7 1974 fleeing at real Rose style pace. He has never been seen since.
.
A multitude of theories as to his fate include departing for deepest and darkest Africa, accidentally drowning himself and migrating to sunny Australia.
.
As to Danny Rose, no nanny at Chez Rose and by all reports an excellent swimmer. As well Barbados is his chosen holiday destination.
.
Whilst Danny’s excellent attempt thus far of invisibility has been impressive the Lord Lucan theory much like the suggested drowning does not hold up well.
.
The “It’s All About the Money “ Theory.
.
True there is that famous, perhaps infamous, interview regards Spurs pay structure needing drastic overhaul. The allied moving to Manchester United mutterings did not go down with one Senor Pochettino. Has Danny burnt his bridges such that reality has stepped in a la Kyle Walker style.
.
Fearing his plunge from Mauricio’s favoured “son” to want away mercenary would dampen anyone’s recovery. Let alone a wish to appear in public.
.
 Rumours still abound as to his departure in January.
.
The Kent Pub Theory.

A knee injury failing to recover the gentle way required surgical intervention. Plenty of time to brood and look on as your teammates play for glory and get second.
.
A jet heeled player with the ability to take on and beat the opposition. Not in plentiful supply at Spurs. A former winger who through astute coaching found out how to defend. On his day the premier left full back in the Premier.
.
Rumours filtering through with the occasional pic indicate he is running about Hotspur Way.
.
A fit and flying Danny Rose takes Spurs a step closer to the Title.
.
Cheers … and happy 37th birthday to Ledley Brenton King … Greg Meyer.    coys.
.
Editors note. The 'Real' Story is an unfortunate linguistic coincidence.

Jimmy's Video Spot:
Just in case you've forgotten. The Joke that Davies is no Danny Rose has worn a bit thin but still has a little more tread to burn.

I Googled Broadway Danny Rose, all I got was some Woody Allen thing, and I don't think he directs any footy team!

Great director, brilliant film but you're right he doesn't.
But why did you do that?
