Was Jermaine Jenas woken up by a trumpet playing teammate? – Would I Lie to You? [HD] [CC]On February 2, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
“The night before the biggest game of my career, a teammate woke me up by practising his trumpet.” David’s team. I’m assuming that’s not a euphemism? What time was this? 12:00, 12:30, something like that. So why were you cohabiting with a trumpeter? Ah, just please, just use that as the trailer and nothing else! Alright, just, that’s it. That’s all we need. It’s not something that you ask, is it? I mean… “Are you a trumpeter?” I don’t… “Let’s room together!” I dunno. And he was from your team? He was, yeah. He was in my team. What team was it? Uh, when I was at Newcastle United. So, where were you? Where… I was in, uh… well, a hotel. A hotel. Where? Um, it was… in Newcas… Think about the other team you were playing. Were you just about to say, “in Newcastle”? It was in Newcastle, yeah. Why would you be in a hotel in your own hometown? Because we were playing against Sunderland. Oh, fair enough(!) Sometimes the manager just likes to keep the players together. – Ah, yes, I have heard of that.
– Under lock and key. Who was the trumpeter? It was Nobby Solano. Ah, Nobby Solano. He’s from Peru. What was he playing? I can’t help thinking if someone wakes you up playing a trumpet in your ear, you don’t go, “Ah! What is that? Is that, uh…” “No, no, no, don’t tell me. Carry on playing.” “I’ll get this.” It was something like, you know them Mexican kind of food adverts, like… (STARTS HUMMING “JARABE TAPATÍO”) More, more, more! And you say this was “Nobby Solero”? “Nobby Solero” is a very adult ice cream. So where is he trumpeting? He was kind of, like, sat at the edge of his bed like this, with a stand and… Stand? Can I just say, if this is a lie, don’t push it. – He’d set up his music stand…
– Stand and a baton! He’d set up his music stand? He got a tunic and a hat on, and under his chin… “Two, three, four!”
(STARTS HUMMING “JARABE TAPATÍO”) And what was his excuse? That he was practising, that was it. Did the conversation go further? Did you say… Well, I just said, you know… “Put it away!” Um… “And you should also stop playing the trumpet!” What do you think? I mean, I know the world of football is not one that you’re overly familiar with. Yes, but I am an expert in nocturnal trumpeting. You know, balances out. What do you think, Germaine? It’s certainly true that people tolerate a lot of noise in South America generally. Okay. You think… I wouldn’t be surprised. I’m going true. We’ll go true. Okay. Jermaine, truth or lie? It’s true.
