Hair we go again – the players are back!

A quick Saturday round-up for you.

We got the first training pictures yesterday and it was nice to see the chaps back out on the pristine pitches of London Colney. They did their socially distant drills, did some smiling for the camera, then got in their cars and went home. It’s fair to say some of them are in desperate need of a visit to the barbers but have obviously respected the guidelines and not sneaked off to one of the underground coiffeurs rumoured to be operating around the Durham area.

Sure, Pablo Mari’s hair looks absolutely perfect, but maybe he’s very good at doing it himself, or he’s got a super talented helper monkey. I did like Dani Ceballos going full mad scientist, and if Aubameyang’s next style isn’t a picture of this current ‘style’ carefully shaved into the side of his head I will be disappointed. Still, barnets aside, the most important thing is that they’re back in training and that’s a nice helping of ‘normality’.

It’s these little things that we’ve missed, like Sokratis trying to decide how slowly he’s going to rip someone’s spine out, that will nourish and comfort us until the football starts again properly.

Of course…
