Carlos Tevez is depressed

Carlos Tevez is depressed. Kicking an inflated ball around a field every week. Scoring goals. Tracking back. Pretending like it all means a fucking thing. A grown man. A sentient human being. I get that. But I sit down at the television, Carlos. I punch the air when the ball goes in the net. I don’t know what the point is either. We’re all floundering here, mate. Just hang in there.

    At first I was silently articulating witty put-downs towards poor Carlos’ predicament, but have eventually decided that it’s quite a touching reminder of how money can’t buy you happiness (at least not when your 19 year old Argentinian actress girlfriend is thousands of miles away…..son of a!!!)

    That’s the part I don’t understand Dermot. With all Sheikh Mansour’s money, you’d think he could get the girlfriend some English lessons and a part in Coronation Street!

    Saturday: Carlos is depressed. Sunday: Carlos signs massive £250k per week contract. I suspect he’ll come around.
