Happy Friday. The best day of the week, but it is better when there is a game on the Saturday. However, for us there is no game this Saturday as we have to wait till Sunday. Unlike, our opponents on Wednesday who get to play on Saturday.
Why the hell are Utd given an extra 24 hours (almost) before such a huge game? Without doing Boro a huge disservice, our game against them is hardly a Classico, and although every game means a hell of a lot to them at the moment, they don't have a midweek game. The reason is that the FA are so in thrall to the lovely-lovely money of the TV companies, that they are probably going to allow the fabled 39th game, and will do anything thy are told. And there they are slating the Southampton management for their inept handling of finances. People in glass houses.....
Good news is that our prayers have been answered and that Johann is fit - no more Silvestre!!! We also welcome back our Spanish Waiter and soon Eduardo as well. This is all good news. However, RVP looks like missing the 1st leg against Utd. This is bad news.
In an absolute thuderbolt from left-field, Rosicky won't be back this season. Well that really is one of the great shocks of our season, along with the actual existence of Amaury Bischoff. Tommy is a dud, lets pay out his contract and sign a replacement (if needed?) and let the Medical team focus on players who have a chance of recovery.
More detail on Saturday or Sunday when 1979 or Ted are less busy.
Breaking-ish news is that the FA are an even bigger bunch of numpty arse-bandits than previously imaginable. I don't know the technicalities of it, but I guess this means they bought Hull's witness statements taken from the friend of the cousin of the binman of the brother of the dungeon-raised-Austrian-offspring of the Fitness coach, who suddenly appeared on the scene when Phil Brown was too busy breaking-down in live interviews with 5Live. What cock-smokers.
