    Default Myers has Finally Lost it.

    What is this gibberish? Complete and utter gobblydegook. How much does he get paid to produce this drivel?

    Kevin Myers: Rooney has a potato for a face, a turnip in his skull, a carrot in his trousers. . .

    ONE look at Wayne Rooney tells you that he's a product of the Irish-vegetable gene pool, with a potato for a face, a turnip in his skull and a vermilion carrot in his trousers.

    Agree - it's demented. Amazing that even the Indo published this stuff.

    I thought the piece was quite funny

    Maternally manoeuvred vehicles are the quintessence of a scalar force, which is energy without direction.

    Great line!

    Myers lost it a very long time ago.

    On the other hand the head of the individual he describes is not exactly the acme of artistic classical perfection ,now is it?

    Our Kevin is interested in race, and with his background, can spot the Gael and the Saxon in a crowd.

    This article is his way of saying that you would not catch someone with Rooney's face playing cricket for Lincolnshire, and you wouldn't find someone with Crouch's face rowing in a Valentia currach regatta.

    Is Bertie's latest money spinning scam ghost-writing for Myers? It reads like it. Suppose it beats winning bucketfuls of shekels on ghost horse racing events.

    And yet here you are talking about it!

    You make it sound like this is Myers first intentionally provocative article.

    He has a point (as I'm sure my fellow Everton supporters will be making tomorrow).
