The Newport County gaffer Michael Flynn has apologised for his prematch ‘dossier’ on Spurs getting into the public domain. Highlights include:
- Eric Dier is one-paced
- Mousa Dembele gave away needless free-kicks
- Dele Alli did not work hard to win possession back
- Michel Vorm doesn’t come for crosses
Eric Dier is not just one paced as addicted to beta-blockers. Dele Alli works very hard off the ball. I’ve never seen anyone wave their arms with such forceful exasperation when sitting on the floor.
If that doesn’t make you chuckle, then perhaps this will. On Monday, Newport announced the departure of midfielder Sean Rigg by “mutual consent”.
“Sean has left the club to pursue his dream as a tattoo artist,” Flynn revealed. Even last week I asked Sean to stay – and I’ve also spoken to his father and his agent – but he made his mind up a while back.”
One player Flynn won’t have to worry about is new boy Lucas Moura who wasn’t registered before the first tie and therefore is ineligible for the replay. And he isn’t fit anyway.
