Morning everyone. Considering there’s such a massive game in midweek there’s rather a dearth of news this morning.
There’s a rather odd rant from Reading’s Dave Kitson who claims Denilson tried to break his leg. If it’s the same incident I’m thinking of the ginger twat got the ball then did the old scissors move on the Brazilian and he got booked for it. If Denilson had tried to break his leg I’m quite sure the card would have been the other way around and it would be the carrot top who needed treatment from the physio.
Let us not forget that Kitson is the same player who spoke out about how people making fun of his gingerness left him feeling ‘empty’ inside and how he felt officials should clamp down on it because it was ‘racist’. No, I’m not making it up.
racism gingism out of football.Â
Leaving behind the important stuff Gilberto looks ahead to the PSV game and says it’s the biggest game of the season. He says:
We are going to have to be patient on Wednesday. They sat back against us, waited for our mistake and they capitalised when we lost concentration – but we have 90 minutes to win the game so it is important to remain calm.
Given the way Koeman’s teams have played against us before and the fact that they have a one goal lead you can be quite sure they’re not going to be too adventurous. An early goal for us would be fantastic because it would mean they have to come out and play a bit which will allow us to play our game but at the back we’ll have to stay as tight as a camel’s arse in a sandstorm because another goal for them will make life very, very difficult indeed.
No news yet about who’s going to be fit, the main question is over Thierry Henry and to be honest if he’s not 100% fit then there’s no point in playing him. He, along with everyone else in fairness, was poor in the first leg and the pain killing injection he had to take before the game obviously had no benefit to anyone as he’s been missing the last few games because of it.
We’ll have Adebayor back though and maybe Baptista can blunderbuss his way through the Dutch defence. I do wish we had Robin van Persie fit though.
In other news Nicklas Bendtner says he wants to return to Arsenal after his loan spell with Birmingham.
Anyway, that’s about all there is to tell you this Monday morning. How was your weekend then?
