The Euros start in just four days. I am very excited. Back in the day, Leeds United would send loads of their players to international tournaments. I remember feeling like a proud father, watching my team’s players representing their country.

Leeds don’t seem to provide many international players these days – mainly because they are rubbish and nobody has faith in a 36 year old, overweight carthorse bringing glory to their country.

Euro 2016 will see one player from Leeds United on the international stage. This player is not 36, overweight or a carthorse. He is a 25 year old, athletic, beast of a man, with a great big bushy beard. His name – Stuart Dallas. One of my favourite current Leeds players (as he is good, he’ll probably be sold next week).

You would be forgiven for thinking that with the skill and talent Stuart boasts, he would be playing for one of the European superpowers like Germany or Spain. He does, in fact, represent Northern Ireland.

So proud am I of Stuart’s callup to the Northern Ireland squad, that I have a Panini sticker of him on my desk at work.

Incidentally, I have also completed the Euro 2016 sticker album. I must admit, that I was tempted to fill every one of the 640 empty spaces in the album, with Stuart Dallas stickers. I didn’t.

Northern Ireland’s greatest every player – sorry, George Best

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
