Fanmail for Alan
Appropriate for a man named Alan to come over a bit Partridge with his defense of a drink driver. Where to start?

First of all the idea that F365 is anti-Spurs and supposedly pro-Liverpool. Now, as far as I’m aware, none of the F365 staff are Reds (none of the big dogs anyway), so I think we can rule that out. As for the anti-Spurs stuff, do you read the same site as the rest of us Alan? F365, who frequently praise Poch, the way Spurs play, their youth policy and ability to compete against far wealthier clubs? It’s normally F365 defending Spurs against the “yeah, but what have they won?” types.

On the point about what would happen to one of the F365 staff members if they got a conviction. I’m going to assume Alan is not yet old enough that he is in the world of work, because for plenty of careers if you are caught drink-driving, you lose your job. I am a teacher. I would lose my job. So can doctors, lawyers and many other professions. In many other industries a drink driving conviction can be the end of it, but Alan doesn’t believe any punishment is needed for Lloris?

Bizarely, Alan mentions Ben Stokes. Is that the same Ben Stokes who lost the England Vice-captaincy because he broke the law? He was also banned for an extended period, including the Ashes at great cost to the England team. He is evidence against Alan’s argument, not for it.

Forget the role model idea (and his Heath Ledger point is just bizarre), drink driving is incredibly serious. Lloris could have killed someone. That’s the fact. His workplace absolutely should make it clear how unacceptable that is. It’s deeply disappointing that Spurs haven’t taken appropriate action and quite sad to see how fans like Alan can be so blinded by bias for their own club.

…Alan, I too am a Spurs fan and I’m sorry; but you just made an absolute tit of yourself!!!

I’ll ingore the accusation of F365 bias as that one’s been done to death over the years. The criticism of Dier is valid; I have the same convo with plenty of Spurs fan mates; and jo worse than they give to Henderson for his same shortcomings over his first 30 caps for England! Likewise Dele; note F365 have not criticised him or his ability, just whether his particular skillset fits in this formation that England wish to use. Again; a conversation I too have had with many Spurs and England supoorting friends and 1 I broadly agree with – it had to be one of Lingard or Dele, not both.

The MC highlights your ridiculousness on the Heath Ledger line; but let’s look at Stokes – he was banned from playing by the ECB until he was charged and had the vice captaincy of the Test and ODI team taken ...
