Did anyone read Terry Butcher’s quotes online or in the press ahead of Scotland-Argentina tomorrow night about how he’s never forgiven, or will ever forgive, Maradona for ‘Hand of God’ and how he hasn’t decided yet if he’ll shake his hand tomorrow night? I doubt Maradona even knows or cares who he is.
6 Celtic players are in the squad after a period of 9 club games in 23 days and only 6 days before an away CL tie in Aalborg. I presume Strachan’s been in touch with Burley to demand they don’t play the full game.
England are in Germany for a friendly and I see John Delaney’s today announced that he hopes England will be one of the first visitors to the new Landsdowne Road.
All in all, friendlies are fairly pointless in the midst of such a busy club schedule with players pulling out of squads in big numbers and Capello seemed to have been particularly annoyed by Gerrard’s withdrawal and demanded that he report to the English camp for assessment on his injury even after his club had indicated he was injured and wouldn’t be travelling.
Brazil vs Portugal in Brasilia in the early hours of Thursday morning. With Ronaldo, Nani and Anderson involved in this they are unlikely to start for United on Saturday. I thought Brazil played their friendly games at the Emitrates anyway.
nah, saving the sponds for oz. sure the walsh cup will be around again soon and the new season under way, must sort out proper sessions then. hopefully the leinster hurling will be in provincial grounds rather than mickey mouse crowds in croke park.
I see Ronaldo is on the verge of admitting defeat and ending his career at 32. sad ending for a great career.
Serbia and Bulgaria is on tonight too, and will be interesting to see who italy use in their game against Greece.
