Spurs Balls: Kyle Walker is monitoring twitter for signs of idiocy

Spurs and England footballer Kyle Walker is in the news for something he didn’t do. Someone told someone who told us that Kyle Walker was in the news. So. We looked at Google. And this is what we saw…

 

Kyle walker sick video lie

 

The video being shared on social media features, we’re told, a dog, a woman and a bed. It has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Walker. But a few bellends on twitter, reportedly, have tried to insult the Spurs defender by linking him to the video. Of course, they are wrong. Their claims as false as they are ridiculous. They should be easy to ignore or mock.

But Walker thinks it a good idea to respond, writing on Facebook:

I wasn’t going to comment on the rumours going around about myself and my family but as people are still talking about them, I feel I need to set the record straight. I am aware of a video being shared on social media and am disgusted by the suggestion that it’s anything to do with us. With so many young people on social media I am horrified that content of that nature has been shared so many times. My legal team are monitoring the activity surrounding this.

And with that the story is amplified and internet is full of headlines about Kyle Walker and a sick video. A few oddities who get their kicks from watching something the sane would find unplesant and others who just want to make a dumb adolescent joke about a footballer, who most likely plays for a team they don’t support, are now being ‘monitored’ by a legal team.

What they going to monitor next, claims that the referee is a w*nker?

The best reponse is from one wag who replies: “Hope his legal team are better at defending him than he is lloris”

Transfer balls: Spurs’ Kyle Walker moves from Real Madrid to Manchester United

Transfer Balls: Is Spurs defender Kyle Wallker heading to Manchester United?

The Indepedent says Kyle Walker is being linked with a £20m move to Manchester United.

The Daily Mail agrees. It adds:

Tottenham would be reluctant to sell and would demand at least £20million.

Why not at least £30m? Manchester United are desperate. They’ll pay.
And if they’ll pay, others will, too. After all it was not so very long ago one newspaper was reporting that Kyle Walker was off to play for Real Madrid.

The paper that reported that scoop? Why, it was the Daily Mail…

That’s ‘unpatriotic’: Daily Mirror’s Robbie Savage slams paper’s picture of Spurs and England’s Kyle Walker huffing nitrous oxide

WHEN the Mirror posted that image of Spurs and England defender Kyle Walker huffing nitrous oxide on his summer holidays – it was June – we were not alone in wondering if the paper had sat on the story. ‘Footballer gets off face on summer holidays’ is not a big story. But ‘England footballer facing crunch World Cup qualifying match inhales hippy crack’ is.

The Mirror then followed its shocker with a picture of Roy Hodgson looking not enough unlike Psycho Norman Bates.

We wondered is the Daily Mirror was deliberately trying to unsettle Hodgson’s England?

Mirror journalist Dan Silver thought us “idiots“:

Dan Silver: ‘Rumbled! Eng at World Cup would be disaster for sales. Oh… #idiots @TheAnorak: Mirror continues drive to undermine Roy Hodgson’s England”

Anorak: “You think the photo the Mirror chose is flattering to Hodgson?”

Dan Silver: “you think the Mirror has a campaign to undermine the England team?”

Anorak: “No. But you’re tapping into the fear factor – not quite the achtung! achtung! of old is it…”

daily mirror

In todays Mirror, columnist Robbie Savage notes:

“Kyle Walker was naïve, and plain wrong, to inhale nitrous oxide ‘laughing gas’ from a balloon at a party. He has apologised for his mistake, the Football Association are not taking any action against him, and that should be the end of the matter. But the timing of the photograph – which caught Walker in the act – being leaked left a lot to be desired. It was clearly designed to unsettle him as England prepared for a vital World Cup qualifier in Ukraine, and it clearly affected Walker’s performance on the night…  The people who leaked that photo may have had their own motives, but at a time when everyone in England should have been pulling together and hoping for an important result on the road to Brazil, it didn’t look like a patriotic act of unity to me.

So. Did the Mirror sit on the photo or not? And what was the Mirror’s motive?

The Mirror’s editorial meeting should by interesting.

Nitrous Oxide laugh in: Spurs and England’s Kyle Walker is a victim of the Daily Mail’s drugs misinformation policy

Tottenham Hotspur's Kyle Walker

SPURS and England defender Kyle Walker has been pictured inhaling laughing gas from a balloon. The picture was taken last June. Is that bad? Well, taking any stimulant is not a healthy option. He won’t be doing it again.

The Sunday Mirror was aghast and thundered:

“This photograph was taken as he was recovering from an injury that forced him to miss England’s friendly double-header against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil.”

Injured footballer on holiday inhales nitrous oxide. Is that a big deal? Well, it is if you sit on the picture and wait until the eve of England’s big match in the Ukraine to publish it.

Neil Ashton writes in the Mail:

‘The FA insist that Walker, who has seven caps and is expected to start against Ukraine, has not broken any laws or behaved in a way that affects his standing with the England team.”
