Diogo Dalot not called up to the Portugal squad but Eric Bailly named in Ivory Coast’s. If Lukaku withdraws from Belgium camp #mufc will have just nine players away on international duty this month. Ideal for Solskjaer ahead of the run-in.
So sad to see the horrific injury to Sir Eric at Cheltenham and subsequently being put down, thoughts with all the horses connections. To all the helmets on here dishing out abuse, have a word with yourselves, you’re exactly what’s wrong with society at the minute. #RIPSirEric
GBGB Ambassador, Ben Keith (from Star Sports Independent Bookmakers) attempts to back track after posting tweet about fatally injured horse, Sir Eric. The GBGB ambassador has been branded disgusting by his followers!!
RIP Sir Eric
The only "Cert" at the Cheltenham "Festival" this week was that more horses would die.
How many more years will we let this barbarity take place to feed the
greed of humans?
@RacingPost To imply Joseph was at some fault for running Sir Eric after a stone bruise 10 days ago is scandalous. He passed BHA inspection they had access to the xrays thst were taken they also checked him after his shoe was replaced before the race. Pls choose ye words more carefully
Well that was a quite depressing start to Cheltenham today with Sir Eric, didn't get any better with Invitation only being put down. Sad day all round. Not sure I'm a fan of jump racing anymore. Stick to flat racing. Less injuries.
What do you mean "according to reports"..It's been well documented that Sir Eric had a minor setback and was given X-rays 2 days ago to double check he was fine to run, which he was.
Stop being such cunts. https://t.co/yNZLkZVqHD
The amount of horrific tweets I’ve seen about Sir Eric is disgusting. Just because a some people have lost a few quid they resort to calling that horse every name under the sun. I’m actually ashamed these people are associated with our sport
Just want to take a moment to say Rest In Peace Sir Eric. To lose a horse like that is heartbreaking. A gorgeous, talented, calm horse and he didn’t deserve the cruel end he was given. My thoughts are with Joseph, JP and anyone connected to him. ❤️ https://t.co/1NHN1USNDf
I read this story and immediately cut to a mental image of Eric, with tearstained tissues on the table beside his laptop, tapping out a message to Robert Mueller: "Sir, I now wish to cooperate...."
@JosephOBrien2 Congratulations on your winners at Cheltenham . I'm also sorry for the loss of Sir Eric it's the highs and lows of jump racing unfortunately I hope you and your team can still celebrate a good festival.
@kevinblake2011 So gutted for all connections and of course Sir Eric himself looked a true class act and what a good looking horse 🐎 put a huge dent on the week but unfortunately it’s part of the game and roll on next year 👍cheers @kevinblake2011 for tips #2020
Introduced the next generation to racing with the #CheltenhamFestival. An awesome intro with the 15yo girl child in awe of the female jockeys. @frost_bryony was inspirational. Sad times today though, seeing Sir Eric breakdown was heartbreaking. Great coverage @itvracing.
