Footballer has no relation to town

WITH reference to Adam Jenkins’ praise of Didier Drogba, you mention Matt Smith and Cardiff and Will.i.am.
First, actually there were remarks made of these.
Second, Matt Smith has nothing to do with Cardiff, my point was the stupidity of having someone with no connection to the town carrying the torch. I agree it is crazy elsewhere as well. Surely they could have found anyone more deserving from the area, celebrity or otherwise.
Third, you mentioned his 150 goals for his club, that club being Chelsea (London); why did he not run there?
Fourth, the guy’s diving is worthy of an Olympic medal in itself.
