Okay, so he won’t be in the sash, but to me he’s always in the sash.
Craven Cottage, I think – though my football mind-tank is about to cut-out through all the strain – is one of those grounds we’ve not always done that well at (and there’s no way I’m going to look it up. DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?). That, mixed with the obscenely unbalanced hybrid of enigmatic footballers that Martin Jol has stuck together with masking tape, makes me feel a little bit uneasy. ‘Sometimes the obscenely unbalanced hybrid of enigmatic footballers, beats the other team’ as that saying goes.
The some sort of form we’re in, though relative, and fleeting, as it sometimes can prove to be, should be enough.
With Rio and Vidic seemingly back in contention, after the League Cup, it will be telling to see if Moyes sticks with Phil Jones and Jonny. I hope so. I think.
As it’s not entirely clear what’s going on with RvP’s fitness, the only thing we can be sure of is Rooney being in his favourwite position. And Plan A(dnan) to feature at some point.
There, that was almost sensible.
Prediction: 1-3. Danny with his customary two. Kags with his customary two.
