UEFA: Bring us the head of Jose Mourinho
December 17, 2010
The next round of the Champions League is drawn in the usual, predictable, yawn inspiring fashion in Switzerland tomorrow morning.
Snow disruptions could yet liven up proceedings. Although I make no promises.
So we have a 50/50 shot at drawing a Spanish giant, I think we have time on our hands before the end of Feb, Mid March 2011 to get ready for a 2 legged battle against the Madrid Mob headed up by twatman.
Gonna be honest, I don’t fancy us, or any other team against the universally accepted baddest team on the planet, Barcelona.
Bravado usually dictates “yeah yeah bring em on” “yeah we’ll kill em this time” … sorry but we won’t, not just us either!
Real Madrid have a decent little squad, and so they should after the billions they have spent. However, if we can get our spinal players fit and ready, we have a proper chance with them.
I am talking Vermalen, Cesc, Diaby, Rvp.
The very same four who were not fit to play United this week.
Our spine, our proper players, the players who do the business and hold the side together in the big games.
Injuries to our main players are frankly pissing the life out of me now, what can we do?
Ever god forsaken season we talk about injuries, and to the same players… it’s never to players who are not essential to our style and solidity.
Maybe we are cursed, but so what… hope is what keeps us all waking up when the alarm bell rings every morning, right?
