You blockhead, Ryan Giggs

May 23, 2011

So finally the worst kept secret since the identity of Who Shot JR is out in the open. Ryan Giggs has been unmasked as the Unnamed Footballer who allegedly slept with That Girl Off Big Brother.

The frustrating thing about all the whole sorry mess is that it could so easily have been avoided; ultimately it was the superinjunction that his lawyers took out to conceal his ID which proved to be his downfall. You can’t help feeling a little sorry for ole Giggsy, in that he surely has been very badly advised.

I would never criticise someone for trying to protect their children from the potentially unpalatable truth of their private life; but from the moment Giggs/his lawyers declared that he was ‘suing twitter’ he was undone. It was such a laughable, arrogantly stupid move, there was only one possible outcome.

In the words of Lucy from Peanuts: You blockhead, Ryan Giggs.

    And now we know (as of this morning) that he’s been cheating with his brother’s wife for the past eight years. What is he like? Does this man have no moral code at all?

    Very badly advised. The whole story would have blown over weeks ago (probably same day reported), no one outside of his family cares about his infidelity. Now he has made it the Story! Only because of free speech, still no one cares about his infidelity. Good quote from Lucy

    Suing ecveryone on twitter – sounds like there were a few headless chickens that morning! A lot of me says so what about the affair plenty of footballers have lived through it and their families. hen you take teh world stage it becomes your village and like it or not you will be talked about when you do something like this. But to sue eeveryone to keep a secret, bonkers!

    Giggs could have retired on such a high. Keeping such a low profile, I didn’t even know what his wife looked like ’til now. I bet he’s pig-sick about the whole sorry affair. Maybe if he’d paid for Ms Thomas to get a Superinjunction too, he could relax knowing that you can STILL spend your way out of trouble.
