What a miserable Tuesday morning, it’s dark, raining and just…. miserable!
On top of that we have no club football to look forward to until the 21st November – that’s eleven days by my calculations..
Had a little peep around for some news, but there is very little. Suppose there won’t be for the next week or so, well not until after the first batch of international friendly’s, then it will be fingers crossed that none of our players pick up any injuries… We have enough already!
After Sunderland on the 21st, the following weekend we take on The Chavs on home soil. News this morning is that Cashley is crocked and could be out for the match against us. It’s always sad to hear that a player is injured, but it Cashley’s case I will be laughing all the way, no doubt with many others too…
Mr Lewin needs to work his hardest on young Theo Walcott and get him fit for the Chelsea match, even if it means he only comes on for 20-30 minutes. No Bridge to cover for Cole so their left side will be very weak and Theo could just have a field day.. Mind you so could Diaby 😉
Cole has some kind of a break, just hope it is not spin and all he has is an ‘international break’!!
Who cares you say…
(Of course, in between the two league games we have a little CL match to play which should secure our place in the play off stages.)
The Mancs are whinging again, well Darren Fletcher to be precise. The ref’s are in the middle of their’ pay back Fergie time’ and are giving free kicks against them that maybe just maybe a few weeks ago wouldn’t have been given. Old Fletcher, the persistent offender thinks that our fine manager is to blame following his comments after the Old Trafford farce!
Get real Fletch, if you commit a foul you give away a free kick, we have had to play by those rules for years, now you have to, get used to it!
Onto a little bit of injury news -poor old Nikki B is off to see a specialist today and it is more than likely that tomorrow he faces the knife for a groin operation, that’s him out for an extra couple of weeks then… I promise I am not smiling as I write that, we don’t need him on the injury list. If Robin picks up an injury we are suddenly struggling up front.
Chamakh, the player I really wanted us to sign has been linked with Manure, please don’t let this be for real, that man should be in red and white come the summer, but not with any hint of black to be seen!
Finally, to leave you all with a smile as big as mine, The Dippers managed a draw at home against Birmingham. Things are picking up then Rafa?
Here’s the top three!! Nice eh ??
