Couple planning romantic weekend away considering inviting other people

A COUPLE planning a romantic weekend away are each thinking about bringing a friend for company, they have confirmed.

Emma Bradford and Tom Logan are both looking forward to their upcoming four-night break in Paris but are also both hoping they might be able to bring a mate with them.

Bradford said: “Paris is going to be fantastic. But what would make it even better is if I could bring Rachael along, because we never run out of things to talk about.

“Tom really likes her, and while he’s looking at some art or whatever we could have a bit of a laugh. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind.”

Logan said: “I love Emma, don’t get me wrong, but she’s not really that fond of a drink while Alan’s more like me. We can knock them back all day.

“Plus he knows about football, and he’s into New Order like I am, and I think it’ll just keep the trip flowing more smoothly. Sometimes when it’s just me and Emma it’s awkward.

“But I’ve asked and he can’t afford it. So to make sure there aren’t any uncomfortable silences, I think I’ll propose.”

Give Belgium third place if they want it, England players agree

ENGLAND players have agreed that today’s third-place play-off should just be given to Belgium if they want it because it is no use to us.

The team have told Southgate that they will still play if they absolutely have to but they honestly find the whole thing unnecessary and humiliating.

Striker Jamie Vardy said: “Third place is worth competing for if you’re a kid in a sack race. But at this level? It’s an insult.

“But nonetheless we’re expected to drag our knackered bodies onto the pitch and pretend we want to win against Belgium, which we’ve already done once this bloody trip.

“Harry’s told us he doesn’t give a bugger about the Golden Boot because he doesn’t want to end up like Gary Lineker, so as far as we’re concerned we can toss for it and call it a day.

“If Belgium want to be second-place losers, they can be. This is bullshit.”

Belgium’s Marouane Fellaini said: “They don’t want it? Yeah well we don’t want it even more. This could turn into quite a match.”
