Who was it who said Bayer Leverkusen’s great strength was in that they were very good at being passive? I’ll ruddy tell you … someone who obviously thinks they are above having a football mouth. That’s who. Have you ever heard the like of it?! I’d just skip this bit if I were you. Damn, I was supposed to put that sentence, about skipping this, at the start. Soz.
Danny’s back. And with Robin still out (I think), could start – which would be relative to my interests. More than anything I’ve missed his thrusting. Not like that.
There’s a lot of talk of Moyes not going out for the win tonight, but, I think, his approach to the Champions’ League thus far – without sending shockwaves, or even ripples across Europe – has been relatively positive, and I expect that to continue, albeit mildly.
I’m fed up of saying how with Carrick being out, other midfield players have an opportunity, so I’m not going to. That doesn’t count.
Leverkusen are second in the Bundesliga, which I’ve heard is a good thing. Let’s hope they pretend to be really terrible, like they did at Old Trafford. More Sami Hyypia, less Sami Hapyyier.
Sometimes when you think a game will be one way, it’s another. Whatever that means.
Prediction: 2 – 3. Danny with his customary two. And Danny with an extra one. Fancy Giggsy to score too. And Chicha. How many’s that? (I actually think this will be a 2-2 draw, but will never predict anything but a win.)
