Bom dia de Lisboa

I’m not in my Donegal corner this morning as I arrived in Lisbon last night.

The Portuguese capital is the new home of the Web Summit.

Consequently, normal service on here will be rather interrupted until this time next week.

I did catch up with one of my sources as I was boarding last night.

He told me that there was a growing constituency in the Blue Room in favour of young Murty.

As previously reported here the sensible faction in the Sevco High Command want the caretaker installed permanently.

It is the cheaper option for sure.

I was also told that the operation to gently ease Bruno Alves off the wage bill has already begun.

Quite simply, the Holding Company Vehicle cannot afford him.

While I’m here at the Web Summit I will not escape the beautiful game entirely.

There are several talks today on the intersection of the digital revolution and sport.

I’m going to one this morning entitled :

” 5 ways technology is changing football”.

It is being given by Pedro Proença a retired referee.

I’m looking forward to it.

You never know, I might find out how you say “Honest Mistake” in Portuguese…
