“I don’t care whether you know it’s an official or not, it’s your responsibility to have your wits about you that when a referee is near you,” Maas said. “You do not touch him. “We’ve made that very clear in our meetings (Wednesday) and our guys understand that going forward.”

The listing describes the home as “totally dilapidated (đổ nát, xiêu vẹo)”, and advises buyers keen to inspect to “have your wits about you due to its condition”. It’s still attracting attention, with agent Michael Montano, from Raine and Horne Leichhardt, identifying the scarcity (khan hiếm) of that type of property as a key factor in driving buyer interest.

Was the lad (chàng trai, thằng, gã) thing a bit of an act? “We knew that journalists wanted it,” says Pizzorno. “But at the same time, we did grow up where, if you wanted to be in a band, you had to have your wits about you. If you’re playing in a village pub in Leicester in front of a load of lads that would throw darts (phi tiêu) at your head for having long hair, you can either go in and be all art school, or you can snap a snooker cue in half and say, ‘Let’s go!’ But then I still wanted to get them in the corner and talk about Jodorowsky afterwards.”
