Watching Theo get kicked about like a rag-doll last night was hard on the eyes.
It looked like a school bully picking on the younger kid but Theo will have to be prepared to face this sort of punishment in most games now.
He is a marked man. His hat-trick for England will have raised his profile and teams realise to stop him they may have to kick him. It could be the only way.
Theo will have to work out the answers to this punishment. He is smart enough but he will also need protection from the ref's as well.
It wont easy for Theo to have lumps kicked out of him but he must learn to deal with it. It wont be easy.
Maybe he should get on the phone to his mentor Thierry Henry. I'm sure he took the rough stuff early in his career. And let's be honest, who around has the explosive pace of Theo?
Only Henry DID have so Theo could learn a lot from how Thierry dealt with it. I'm sure Titi being the legend that he is would be happy to help.
Keep it Goonerish............
