It's oh so Quiet

Sorry about the lack of updates everyone - I've been a busy beaver over the last 3 days (6 exams don't you know) - but as of Saturday regular updates will be back!

Most of the news today centres around the England camp - with headlines involving 'Greek Tragedy' and talk of 'Trojan Horses' the potential for bad puns and double entendre is enormous. I however, will avoid the temptation.

It would be fair to say that England expects a result tonight, Greece are a well organised side with a hot centre forward (Machlas) but the rest of the team is sadly lacking. Newspapers highlight Greece's best players with special attention paid to 'star' player Nikos Dabizas, now correct me if I'm wrong but isn't he the dodgy centre half who plays for Newcastle? Average at best. So long as we keep Machlas at bay we'll be fine. If we do lose tonight though it will only be because of a poor, poor performance by England - and it will have to be a shocker.

Other News

Bryan Robson has officially left Middlesborough, with Steve McLaren replacing him as head coach at the club.

Robert Pires has said in an interview at the Confederations Cup that Patrick Vieira is still considering his future at Arsenal. Just offer him a blank cheque boys and let him concentrate on winning the Champions League. Pires himself is rumoured to interest Valencia who need a wide player after Mendieta has decided to play throught the middle next season.

Arsenal have offered Rangers �12m for Barry Ferguson, another shrewd move by M. Wenger? only time will tell.

West Ham have rejected a �15m Villa bid for Freddie Kanute and Frank Lampard. The club want more like �25m, don't blame them.
