I need club football!

September 11, 2009

The depression of not having Spurs over these past two weeks saw me waste away precious time on my PS3 trying to maintain the adrenaline levels interrupted by the international break. I even watched repeats of this season’s matches just to relive the thrill of that winning feeling. I want club football back!

The odds are against us in maintaining our recent form, although there is no doubt in my mind that we could win the next few games. But when you’re on top, sometimes there’s only one way to go. Dare I say it? We face two of the best teams in back to back matches. Man Poo (my United supporting friends are going to hate me) at the Lane, then over to Stamford Bridge to rendevouz with Chelsea and Drogba’s hair stylist.

So I finally get my fix tomorrow when we face the Poo’s shaky yet potentially dangerous squad. It’s not going to be an easy matchup as they’re beginning to gel. Thank God the majority of our players are returning with positive results for their national squads. Only having a day to rest before going straight back into the season is a bit worrying, but thankfully for us, a few of our lot were playing nearby at Wembley.

Some questions on my mind:

  • Keano on the left?
  • Will Harry give Gio a chance?
  • Will Kranjcar get a few minutes of playing time?
  • King and Bassong fit?
  • Pav to come on as a 90th minute sub?
  • Will Joe Jordan finally strangle a referee?

Approx. 28 hours and counting to find out.
