HELPLESS CLOTET’S AGONY
TONY BANKS

THESE are strange times for everyone.

But imagine having your wife and children and your parents 800 miles away and not being able to do a thing to help them.

English football is packed full of foreign managers, coaches, players, and other staff. Some have their close families with them, many do not.

But all will have relatives in their homelands, with many of them on lockdown.

Birmingham boss Pep Clotet is one of those. Last Wednesday he packed wife Vanessa, three-year-old son Max and one-year-old daughter Helena back off to his native Spain.

A CHANCE ENCOUNTER WITH LEAPY LEE

On vacation on the Costa del Sol in Spain, I happened across an English language newspaper named The Euro Weekly News. There was an article signed by Leapy Lee. I wondered, “How many Leapy Lees can there be in this world?” An email address was attached. I contacted him and indeed, it was the British singer of “Little Arrows” fame. “Little Arrows,” an international country rock hit in 1968, made it to No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 and sold three million copies worldwide. I set out to find what Leapy Lee has been doing since 1968.
