What can I tell you? My guess is that both managers will have, shall we say, emphasised the need for focus, application.... and made it quite clear to all concerned that this match is well winnable without it deteriorating into 'air hockey' scores again.
Benty is not on his way to the pikeys, rather still nursing a ligament strain, Younes has an iffy ankle and Ledley is being used, like any bottle of Must de Cartier recieved over Christmas... sparingly. Teemu, Pascal and and Stalts have all been in training.
Oh yeah, precisely as I said, Alan Hutton snubbed us.
No concoction of of my ego, or SSN nor his agent
Just Alan. Just the facts. Just as I said.
Sometimes.. one just needs... TO BE TOLD.
And shut up.
If a replay is required this will take place on Tuesday 15 January, kick-off 8.00pm.
Here's my pick of the pops...
